DNA Battles is a documentary produced by Evidence Press, published in the summer of 2018. This film takes on the subject of DNA mutations (nuclear DNA and mitochondrial DNA). DNA is genetic data that can be empirically measured and verified. Evolutionists claim that psuedogenes or “false genes” provide ample evidence that humans are here as a result of evolution of common descent from our evolutionary ancestors. The book, Adam and the Genome (produced and promoted by Biologos) is prominently presented in the documentary representing the evolution view. As seen in DNA Battles their claims are hollow — based on what they call psuedogenes are “defective” and “are genetic ‘fossils’ in our DNA.” However, Nathaniel Jeanson and Jeffery Tomkins reveal that these genes are in fact functional and therefore are not as the evolutionists claim.
The vast majority of evidence favoring evolution is founded in the assumption that evolution is true. Once that assumption is removed, evolution loses the battle over evidence. In addition to the above, an example of this is the evidence surrounding DNA mutations in mitochondria — the powerhouse of the cell. You must watch the documentary to get the details but suffice it to say, it is a fascinating journey. It is a journey that specifically points to how long people have lived on Earth.
The documentary also takes time to explore the implications of the existence of Adam and Eve. Were they real people? Were they the original people or were they part of a population? A recent book, Adam and the Genome produced and promoted by Biologos strongly purports that Adam and Eve were part of a population or were not real at all. What does this mean theologically? Does it matter if Adam and Eve were real? DNA Battles explores this intensely fierce battle in the Christian world.

EvidencePress The following is from an Evidence Press YouTube discussion. See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5wv3GFR0yg It is an interview Jim Bendewald completed with Nathaniel Jeanson.
DaveM Jeanson is a liar, he has never worked in the field, not in any lab or any research facilities anywhere outside of school , he sits in a cubicle and repeats what Ken Ham tells him to say or he is fired by contract. The statement of faith on AIG’s page is self explanatory.
EvidencePress Jeanson specifically states the research he did and the schools where he did the research. There are different kinds of research. How does that make him a liar? Jeanson published his book, Replacing Darwin in 2017. He previously worked with the Institute for Creation Research. It is customary for Christian schools, ministries and churches to have a statement of faith.
DaveM He researched stem cells in school and was going to cure cancer but decided working at ICR would better serve humanity, and his wallet. When your statement of faith says you will discount any and all evidence that goes against the bible you are no longer engaging in science. Genetic research requires a laboratory that AIG doesn’t have.
EvidencePress I don’t know what sort of deal he has with Answers in Genesis and their distributor Masterbooks, he hopefully is making some money from his book. He told me it was 8 years in the making. It is extremely unlikely that he would make anything close to what he could make in the secular world. Read his book or some of his articles. He is completely into evidence. The kind of research he is doing lately is reviewing what secular scientists have discovered and published. This is why his work is so powerful, he is using what others have published about mitochondrial DNA and other issues.
DaveM [The AiG statement of faith includes:] “By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information.” https://answersingenesis.org/about/faith/
EvidencePress As I stated, various Christian organizations have statements of faith. Secular universities also have rules of faith when it comes to evolution. They may or may not be written and clear as the Answers in Genesis (AiG) statement of faith but they are just as real. When professors, educators, scientists from within secular universities go outside the evolution-only dogma they may be ostracized, prevented from given tenure (which happened to Guillermo Gonzalez), removed from their job (which happened to Richard Sternberg and Caroline Crocker). Students have their grades reduced and possibly worse for not towing the party line.
DaveM As I stated, when you throw facts in the garbage you do not like you are no longer engaging in science. all life changes and allele frequencies of populations change that’s a fact that’s what the theory states the facts. Being ignorant of science and evolution in the 21st century with the internet in your hand doesn’t change the facts, it makes one willfully ignorant.

Is Dave correct, that in order for Jeanson to be a working scientist he has to be running laboratory experiments? Or is researching others’ works and published papers providing scientific work? What do you think of the fact that secular universities put tremendous pressure on professors, researchers and students to people to tow the evolution line? Do you have a different experience?
DNA Battles is a documentary about the science of DNA mutations and its implications on Adam and Eve and effects on the integrity of the Bible. With seven scientists and two theologians interviewed this 1-hour documentary is compact and needed for today’s modern controversy over the existence of Adam and Eve. A common expression among Christians is that they don’t feel creation is of critical importance. DNA Battles takes on this attitude with full force. If you care about the Bible, if you care about what Jesus said, if you care about the integrity of scripture, please watch DNA Battles. You will be surprised, amazed and challenged!
DNA Battles was directed by Jim Bendewald and produced by Evidence Press, Inc. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization who reveals through video evidence for creation. Jim Bendewald and Evidence Press have also produced Testing Evolution: Exposing Flaws. In 2017 we produced with the Creation Research Society the award winning documentary, Echoes of the Jurassic.
