Reasons why epigenetics will not rescue the theory of evolution

Evolutionists think that epigenetics would somehow support the theory of evolution. They use, for example, terms like phenotypic plasticity, which means rapid adaptation of an organism to environmental changes without changes in DNA. They argue that evolution takes place slowly so that gradual changes will accumulate into permanent changes in the organism's genome. It is time to expose the evolutionists' delusions.

1. Epigenetic mechanisms do not produce new biological information. The most important epigenetic mechanisms and factors influencing them in the cell are DNA methylation, histone epigenetic markers, and over 140 of different types of epigenetic markers mediated by RNA molecules. Epigenetic information may be of a digital nature (histone markers), analogue (e.g., methylation profiles of the CpG islands, 3D genome and its folding) or metadata, i.e. information on the way information is processed.

Almost all epigenetic information is reset during the embryonic development. However, the epigenetic information structures associated with the immune system are not reset so that offspring will be able to survive against viruses and other pathogens.
2. DNA methylation profiles stabilize the genome and their balance significantly affect the ability of DNA repair mechanisms to function correctly. Epigenetic mechanisms are often said to have no effect on changes in DNA, but this is not really the case. In many studies, medical scientists have found that abnormalities or disruptions in DNA methylation profiles result in erroneous gene expression and harmful sequence changes in the DNA. The most significant mechanism of harmful mutations is the conversion of methylated cytosine (5mC) to thymine, which is not corrected by the repair enzyme glycosylase. It has also been found that hydroxymethylated cytosines tend to change to guanine.

There may be a number of reasons for changes and disturbances in the DNA methylation profiles. The most significant are oxidative stress and changed dietary habits especially within animals in nature. Smoking and alcohol consumption have also been found to cause imbalance in the methylation profiles, which therefore triggers sequence alterations in the DNA. There are already 220,270 disease-causing genetic mutations in the human DNA at population level with an annual growth of over 20,000 !!

Modern science therefore does not know any mechanism that would lead to an increase in biological information that would result in an growth of functional or structural complexity, which can be considered as an evolutionary requirement. Contemporary observations show that any change in organisms is based on epigenetic regulation of existing biological information, or the gradual but inevitable disappearance of information. That is why the evolutionary theory is the most serious heresy of our time. Don't get lost.
