Atheist biologist Richard Dawkins and others have pointed to man’s best friend as confirmation that evolution creatively builds new species. Behe explains, though, that when the cell’s secrets are considered — biological information at the DNA level — we discover that dogs are broken wolves. Of course that doesn’t make them any less loveable. They evolved largely by losing genetic functions through mutation. As Dr. Behe explains, “The mutations don’t construct new genes. Most of them break or damage preexisting genes.” He gives specific illustrations. In fact, some of the things we love most about dogs are due to such “disruptions” or “degradations” of genes. In just five minutes, Behe expands his case studies of the phenomenon to polar bears and the E. coli bacteria studied in Richard Lenski’s famous lab.But the most widely advertised wonder of evolution is that it builds novelties, not that it destroys them. In that case, where do the novelties come from? Behe will answer that question in a subsequent episode.Look here, here, and here for previous installments of Secrets of the Cell from Discovery Institute.

Utah golfer Tony Finau to give back through Foundation, makes papa proud

first_imgPROVO — Even before he hit the big time and won a couple of million dollars, Tony Finau had a strong feeling about giving back.So even though he is just 25 years old and a rookie on the PGA Tour, Finau is starting the Tony Finau Foundation to help underprivileged kids achieve their goals.“When we were young, we didn’t come from much money and needed a lot of help,’’ Finau said Friday at Riverside Country Club as he took a break in his schedule from the PGA Tour. “We feel like through this foundation we can help kids achieve any goal that they want. We’ve had visions of this for awhile and I’m grateful and feel blessed to be in the position that I’m in. There’s never a bad time to start.’’The Foundation will have a two-day kickoff next month at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club in Lehi. On Sept. 29, there will be a luau and a silent auction featuring several items from professional athletes. Then on Sept. 30, a pro-am will be played and Finau will conduct a clinic along with local golfers from the PGA Tour —Daniel Summerhays, Zac Blair and Scott Pinckney — with a banquet to follow. The Foundation has several sponsors and is looking for more as well as golfers for the tournament.”We want to empower kids and families to provide them with the funds, through education and golf, and through any sport,” Finau said. “We want to work with the community and the Salt Lake area specifically. We feel like we can help a lot of kids with the resources that we have.”Tony’s father, Gary, who will be the president of the foundation, said the family is happy to give back after receiving help from many people over the years when they lived in the Rose Park area and Tony and his brother, Gipper, got their start in golf.“I always told my sons, ’Don’t forget where you came from,’’’ Gary Finau said. “I’m proud that Tony has the vision and the heart to know who he is and I’m grateful for him to be able to hold onto his values and to be able to give back.’’ Related Lashley’s back in familiar spot, atop Utah Open leaderboardcenter_img Tony Finau’s rise on PGA Tour remarkable — and he’s just getting startedlast_img read more
