Mutations have occurred causing the new strains of the COVID-19 Virus.
“Changes like this are expected. This does not mean the virus is ‘evolving’. In fact, over time viral infectivity should wane. As each viral strain in circulation picks up more and more mutations, it should become less and less robust. This is the essence of genetic entropy and we saw it happen within the human H1N1 virus. Yet, the process took decades in H1N1 and SARS-CoV-2 has only been around for a short time. Will genetic entropy degrade the virus? Yes. Will it happen this year? No. And, while it is degrading, it might also pick up a mutation that makes it spread faster or one that makes it more deadly.
Many people are alarmed by the rise of new variants of SARS-CoV-2. Many others feel that this clinches evolution. They look at these adaptive changes and conclude that long-term evolution must be a done deal. They are not right. All of this fits the creation model. There is no ‘evolution’ to see here.”
