Darwin was simply mistaken…

The best argument against Darwinism had been known for centuries by farmers and breeders, and it can be stated in a simple principle: Natural change in living things is limited. Or, stated positively: Organisms stay true to type…

They (observed changes) represent cyclical change in gene frequencies but no new genetic information…

Darwin was simply mistaken in his extrapolation. Whether in the breeding pen or out in nature, the minor change produced by shuffling genes is not an engine for the unlimited change required by evolution. The natural tendency in living things is not to continue changing indefinitely but to stay close to the original type.

Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, from How Now Shall We Live?, p. 83, 85
