Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

DB: No other argument is needed. Since you have failed to address the problems that your unproven premises have with the observed behavior of random mutation and natural selection. And so it would seem that Nils is "out of bullets." As his premise has insurmountable problems. So the question then b...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Yes, the large number of irreducibly complex biological systems in the world today is a fatal flaw in your unproven presumptions. But the complexity of DNA at the molecular level is yet another stake in the heart (nice Halloween metaphor) to your unproven assertions. All you have to do is examine t...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The reason the single mutation path doesn't work is there are so many specific single mutations required to get from one beneficial state that natural selection will propagate to another beneficial state that natural selection will propagate. And the non-beneficial single mutations along the allege...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Nils: Talking about Behe you again say that coordinated mutations make things impossible. But there are other methods Nils presumes there are other methods, not because science has proven or observed them, but because in his mind, they MUST exist! How to comment such nonsense? But not only would th...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

My question continues to be WHY do living organisms evolve as opposed to NOT evolving? The simple answer is because they can to which I ask WHY can they? There is no real reason why any organism MUST evolve, right? So why do they? Assume that 1.there are genes that control the behaviour of animals....

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

To adapt: Become adjusted/Adjust to new conditions. A mutation is a new condition. To use this paragraph: If a particular genetic mutation is beneficial to an organism then that mutation can be propagated to the organism's offspring through the process of natural selection (survival of the fittest)...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Observation and experimentation have demonstrated that three coordinated mutations at the molecular level are beyond the capability of random mutation for the history of life on our planet. This means that the Darwinian processes of random mutation and natural selection alone are incapable of produ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

The idea that blind, non-intelligent things could produce what exists or ANYTHING that has existed in the past, is the fantasy of those desperate to believe in a Godless universe! Even if you don’t believe it methods of generating new information by evolution are used everyday in science, both as c...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Genesis states that Man, like all other animals came from the earth. That all living creatures have similar building blocks is a given. That some or even all, would have a "common ancestor" is also feasible. To me, what needs to be explained is not that random mutations occur BUT WHY and HOW living...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

this is why most people agree with theistic/deistic evolution Well, misunderstanding or ignorance of evolution is rather common. Nils Not necessarily ignorance of how it works, just that it makes sense for someone to "help" get evolution going here and there. You, are right. Some persons accept the...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Dbowling, Evolution news writes about the Nobel Prise in Chemistry 2018: “She and the graduate students working with her soon found that it was much harder to anticipate the effects of designed changes than they had thought. That’s when she made the shift to what is known as directed evolution. The ...

Re: The Experimental Evidence against Darwinistic Evolution

Please show me where Behe in his The Quarterly article writes that the conclusion is “If Darwinian evolution is at work, it tends to remove FCTs much faster than it creates them — something else must be generating the information for new FCTs." or something similar. Let's start with what the Discov...
