The long-term evolution experiment is one of the most interesting studies done on the feasibility of evolution to produce complicated metabolic systems and new systems of information within cells. Evolution holds that mutations occur through natural processes which by chance produce advantageous changes.  These changes enhance the organism’s ability to survive and thus over time become dominant within the population. The problem with trying to substantiate evolution is that these changes take considerable time to accumulate within a population and show a survival benefit. Since people reproduce every 25 years, the time required to see inherited beneficial mutations accumulate with… Read More »
