In order to prove that universal common decent is plausible someone needs to come up with at least one example of observed added information to the chromosomal DNA of an organism in such a way as to improve its survivability in someway.

How about the ability to utilize a new food source? Some E. Coli evolved the ability to utilize citrate in oxic conditions.

That's an improvement in survivability as a result of genetic mutation, i.e. adding information to DNA.

Please go read up on the experiment before debating it, please.

Re: topic
Brad, please either credit your sources or refrain from plagarism.

Would someone better qualified than I am in biosciences care to refute Brad's uncreditied snippet from Answers in Genesis, perhaps in another thread, as this still seems to be going off-topic?
