Evolution's Information Problem

The biological evolutionary theory has an insurmountable problem of information.{1} There is no, in the words of Timothy Wallace, "specific, empirically evident original mechanism/process and pathway of specific, empirically evident mechanisms/processes have led from zero genetic data in raw matter to the vast array of voluminous genetic data inherent in living organisms as we know them."{2} The theory of evolution requires an increase in information over time. But the mechanisms said to increase information, viz. Mendelian inheritance, polyploidy, hybridization, and (accidental) mutations{3} do NOT result in an increase in information. We observe ONLY conservation or loss of genetic information.{4} Antibiotic resistance is not due to an increase in information,{5} nor do new plant colors stem from an increase in information,{6} nor does the adaptation of bacteria to feed on nylon waste constitute an informational increase.{7} It is a shame that the patently absurd theory of evolution has so many people deceived; people just seem to take for granted that it is true!
