What is the problem with poodles?

Poodles are the end result of many mutations in the canine kind.  Please don’t be offended when you read that poodles are mutated dogs.  Many animals are products of mutations.  The miniature poodle is susceptible to a wide variety of genetic problems, diseases, and syndromes.  This shows that mutations are more often than not harmful to a living thing.  Mutations can produce a variation of a kind, such as the poodle, but it comes with a cost, and no new kinds of animals are ever created.  Mutations take away information from the genome and this causes more problems with survivability.  For more information about the harmful effects of mutations, see the article about the fruit fly experiments.

What were the findings from the fruit fly experiments?

Natural selection was ruled out as the “engine” for evolution, so Darwinists tried to find evidence that mutations would be the engine.  In order to prove that mutations developed new species, experiments were done on fruit flies.  This species, the Drosophila melanogaster, was used because they bred rapidly, reached maturity in 12 days, had easy to observe characteristics, and had only a few chromosomes.  Countless millions of fruit flies were zapped with radiation in hopes of creating a new species, but despite the millions of flies that were experimented on, not one fly “evolved” into a new species.  Four hundred mutations were created from the radiation experiments, but none of the characteristics formed a new species.  Instead, many of the flies developed negative side-effects from the harmful radiation, such as reduced body size or inoperable wings.  This proved instead that mutations are usually harmful and rarely beneficial.
