The Weismann Cell Barrier has been Broken

Back in the nineteenth century, evolutionary zoologist August F.L Weismann determined that there was a wall of separation between reproductive cells and body cells in higher animals. Information from body cells should not be passed on to reproductive cells.

There has been a great deal of study in this area, and that barrier is not so impenetrable after all. There is a route from RNA to DNA that was recently discovered. This is yet another area where neo-Darwinism is taking a hit.

The wall of Weisman, a fundamental evolutionary dogma, is found to have holes. Biological science is changing, results further support creation.

Our Creator has designed a number of factors to protect the human body, such as the germline (reproductive) cells, and while the Weismann Barrier has some gaps, new discoveries are presenting new areas for research. Perhaps there is a blessing in the fact that lifespans after the Genesis Flood dramatically decreased, as the seeds of patriarchs deteriorates.

As we have seen many times before, evolutionists think they have things all sewn up, oversimplify and mislead — then the genius of the Master Engineer appears again, needing to be evosplained away. Biology has grown increasingly complicated over the years, evolutionary dogma is crumbling, and evidence supports recent creation.

A cardinal rule in biology is that the body cells and reproductive cells are separate in higher organisms.

This is called the Weismann barrier, after famous German evolutionist August Weismann (see Box) who discovered it. It was he who first realized the difference between the reproductive cells and the body cells in higher organisms.

This is not true in all species. The animals I studied for my PhD, corals, do not work like this. In corals, any cell can become a reproductive (i.e. ‘germ’) cell. For large coral colonies living in shallow water, this might include a cell from a lineage that has been blasted by high levels of mutation-inducing ultraviolet light for hundreds of years. How these animals have managed to persist over ‘evolutionary’ time is a bit of a mystery. Higher animals, however, carefully partition and protect their reproductive cells. They keep them in isolation and have various strategies for making sure they go through as few cellular divisions as possible.
