How can natural selection even start without an original design? When you look at all of the knowledge that we have taken from scientific pursuits, and you look at it with no expectations, what you see is breathtaking. The universe is an amazing place.
So how can natural selection even start without an Original Design? Your living organism must have come to existence at some point. They reproduce now that they are complete and existent, but for them to come in existence they must have been created. Tell me anything you have ever known that came to existence from nothing — without a cause. Which came first the chicken or the egg? You can’t have one without the other, unless there is a Divine Creator. I’ll let you think on that for a while.
A person needs to study the probabilities to determine if intelligent design is involved. The chances of finding a functional protein by chance is 1/10 to the 164th power… Now to understand this gigantic number just knows that there is only 1/10 to the 80th power particles in the known universe.
A car that could reproduce itself would be way ahead of our technological abilities. The base idea of the argument is the complexity of organic life, is far more complex than a car or a watch, of anything man can make. It has several parts that are required to be all present at once in order to function. The idea of a car randomly coming together over time is preposterous and even more so for something that is more complex in nature.
Natural selection is based on emotional ideas which, even if by some wild chance turned out to be correct, are still illogical given the state of our knowledge: the First Cause. There was an entire planet to start with – a planet with at least the simplest form of pre-biotic “life” that evolution began with. Evolution did not start with nothing.
Evolution only explains the diversity of species. Mutations of organisms slowly change within their environment to be able to survive as efficiently as possible. Evolution doesn’t attempt to explain mutation and the First Cause or the Master Biological Programmer
