Direct mutagenesis better explains peppered moth variation (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
The differing frequencies of the different color varieties of peppered moths can better be explained by the direct effects of mutagenic pollutants, since the usual explanation of differential bird predation lacks support.
- Wells, Jonathan, 1999. Second thoughts on peppered moths. This classical story of evolution by natural selection needs revising.
No place in the cited sources does Wells makes such a claim. He mentions the theory but only as part of the theoretical back ground.
It needs to be noted that the traditional peppered moth story is no way a threat to creation science. Not only do the peppered moths remain peppered moths but it does not even represent a change in the peppered moth gene pool but only a temporary shift in populations. The fact that Evolutionists even consider this evidence for evolution is a sign of desperation.
