Why does change mean random mutations?

When a video game designer programs artificial intelligence, the programmer codes the AI to change tactics according to specific circumstances.

Thus, changes are due to intelligent design programs when referring to video game design.

The same occurs within genetic code. Humans change skin color due to changes within the environment. When the sun is present, dark skin is programmed to protect against harsh, hot conditions. White skin is programmed when the sun is absent.

So, why is change synonymous with random events and not synonymous with programs?

What is your evidence that a person's skin changes from white to black when the sun is present and changes to white when the sun is absent?

Cool. But I've never seen a black skin change to white when the sun is absent.
Some are programmed to be originally darker skin. Some are programmed to be lighter skin when born. Then depending upon the environment, the skin is programmed to become lighter if not in sun and darker when in the sun.

Nice catch!!! (Chuckle)

It is not "synonymous with random events", you have been misinformed. Natural selection is not a random event.

Random mutations may make for a darker skin, a lighter skin or the same colour skin in the offspring. A darker skin in a high latitude can cause vitamin D deficiency, resulting in malformed bones and diseases such as Rickets. Those effects make those genes less likely to be passed on in that environment. No programming required.

Random mutations may make for a lighter skin in a tropical climate, resulting in a greater chance of the offspring contracting skin cancer. Hence those genes are less likely to be passed on in that environment. No programming required.

If you do not understand natural selection then you will have difficulty understanding how evolution works.

Wrong. Originally all humans had dark skin, because light skin in Africa results in damage which would make anyone with light skin less likely to survive and breed. As human beings migrated North, light skin became an advantage, as it enables the manufacture of vitamin D even in the weaker sunlight of those latitudes.

Evolution produced lighter skin in the North, through natural selection working on the variation of skin tones caused by mutation. No need for programming.

Are programmers limited to only white skin or dark skin when creating a character?

Or can programmers create a character with any shade or color?

By the way have you ever played a game that has a character creation?

Nice story. Observational evidence is missing.

By the way, you are stating the sun affects the skin in a specific way, right?

Have you never seen the variety of skin tones that humans have? Really? Lok closely. You will see huge variation, but you will never see anyone who is black, or white.

Indeed, I'm glad you agree with Creation science

Indeed. There is light and dark skin programmed into the genetic code.

The sun, or more accurately UV light, has many different effects on the skin. The skin has evolved defences which mitigate some of these effects.

Indeed, there are many programs initiated when skin is exposed to the sun.

When you go in the sun, what happens to your skin?
