Uh Oh

Well, that's potentially no good.

Multiple mutations have been found in the H5N1 bird flu virus that killed seven family members in Indonesia although scientists are unsure of their significance, a leading science journal said on Thursday.

But researchers believe the findings reinforce the need for bird flu data to be more widely available to improve understanding of the deadly virus.

"The functional significance of the mutations isn't clear -- most of them seem unimportant," the journal Nature said in a report in the latest issue on Thursday.

But don't worry, evolution isn't real. There's absolutely no chance that you will wake up to find your bloodstream infected with little monkeys or the like.

(As an aside, this is yet another example that creationist canard of "most mutations are harmful" is false. I don't want to suggest anything improper, but it's almost like they lie on purpose.)
