In this CrEvo rant, Ian addresses the evolutionary claim that nylonase (and other, similar bacterial mutations) are an increase in information in the genome.

It was brought to my attention that the link I provided to Anderson's original paper no longer worked. He and Dr. Georgria Purdom have a more recent paper out which covers the same topic and makes the same points:
A Creationist Perspective of Beneficial Mutations in Bacteria
Dr. Georgia Purdom and Dr. Kevin Anderson

Please note that while there are many evolutionary papers which have referred to bacterial mutations as "non-random" (i.e., the genetic changes were made by the bacteria itself), one in particular is: Cairns, J., and P. L. Foster, 1991. Adaptive reversion of a frameshift mutation in Escherichia coli. Genetics 128:695–701.
