Yet some scientists expect you to believe that some 'primordial slime' gradually changed into you over millions of years!
There are many reasons why this is impossible backed up by an ever growing body of evidence from a range of scientific disciplines including biochemistry, physics, information theory and statistics - all of which I look at later. But consider this simple argument for now; The famous Cambridge professor Fred Hoyle stated that arguing that we got here via Darwinian evolution is equivalent to arguing that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard could assemble a jumbo jet.
No-one finding a 747 would argue that it had come together by accident. Everything about it shouts 'design!' Yet you are far more complex than a plane. A plane is not alive, it cannot grow or reproduce. Furthermore the natural tendency of the plane is to fall apart, to corrode - just as the natural tendency of a banana is to turn to mush.
This tendency for all things to go from order to disorder is encapsulated in a universal law known as the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. So fundamental is this law that another famous scientist, Arthur S. Eddington, stated that “If your theory is found to be against the second law of thermodynamics, I can give you no hope; there is nothing for [your theory] but to collapse in the deepest humiliation.” Yet Darwinian evolution does just that. It sets itself against this fundamental law!
So why do some scientists cling to the theory of evolution? A good question which I'll explore more fully later. One straightforward but sad answer is that many biologists simply do not understand the implications of the 2nd Law. Here's another...
Ho Ho Ho!
You believe in Evolution?
Belief in Evolution is similar to the belief in Father Christmas. Yet many people are reluctant to give up on their belief in evolution even when its impossibility is pointed out to them. Some scientists cling to the vain hope that there may be some as yet undiscovered magic out there that will allow it to be true.
In 2007 the U.K. government published guidance on the teaching of Intelligent Design in Schools. A document full of misleading and false statements.
