Here is a fascinating story about evolution being studied outside its traditional context of organic hydrocarbons. I often wonder why Creationist/Intelligent Design supporters do not stand by their convictions and refuse to use the latest antibiotics. After all the old ones worked well enough in the past. If these microbes can not evolve new traits then there is no reason to use new drugs. Of course they may say (and some have) that when God created these pathogens he gave them all kinds of genes against future medicines but that they only got around to using them after we got complacent. "You give us the word God," say the bacteria "and we will start producing that chemical that disables penicillin. It would have been nice if you had given us the go ahead as soon as the humans started wiping us out. Who's side are you on anyway?"
Many products and pieces of software are being developed via genetic algorithms, which is essentially the same thing as evolution but cleaner and which initially drew the same criticism from designers and programmers as from Creationists (supposedly, you can't get anything new and useful from random changes, no matter how strong the selective pressure is and no matter how many individuals you change and test). With that the case, an I.D./Creationist needs to be careful now and in coming years that he does not accidentally buy something that he does not believe can actually exist.
