Yeah, it’s just

not reasonable to think that all this “just happened by accident.” I really don’t have enough faith in Darwinism to believe that.

(h/t: Instapundit)

YOU have 18 minutes to watch this, so do… I think that it is quite clear that there are often micro changes to animal structure. Every animal breeder for thousands of years has known THAT! Environment, broadly conceived, drives these micro-changes.

And an intelligent agent (the breeder) can decide what traits are most important, here. But, at heart, we are NOT talking simply about “woolier sheep.”

Yeah, and we haven’t even gotten to the “Cambrian explosion” and the Burgess shale…

The issue is that we have yet to find macro, complex, multi-step changes. Sure, I can go from wolf to pug, but they are both still dogs! Wolves are not now alligators. Where is the example of a proto-dog suddenly growing feathers and then taking flight? C’mon!

And what “survival value” would such a proto-dog with feathers have? What good would half a mammalian eye be?

Now once an eye already exists I can breed for a certain color or a certain acuity. Yeah, DUH!

But THAT is not the question. The question is how the eye got there in the first place! The issue is not the survival of the fittest. It is the arrival of the fittest!

We need to take a bit of a hard-nosed scientific stance, here. No more early 19th-century Darwinian fairy tales and catechisms!
