A ABC news article titled Big Fast Change just popped up on this site's Science in the News webpage under the title Genetic Evidence for Evolution?... (I have no idea why the different titles in different venues). It describes how mutations to Hox genes can cause significant changes in body plan. Evolutionists cite it as further evidence in support of evolution, while Creationists dismiss it as evolution through loss of information.

I tend to side with the article's concluding comments that there is already sufficient evidence for evolution.
