Five evidences that shows evolution’s weakness against Intelligent Design
Without a designer, atheists do not have to acknowledge, believe, or obey the God of all creation. Today, Darwin’s theory is taken as if it’s factual, although many Christian scientists have debunked it.
1. Evolution doesn’t make sense when compared to Intelligent Design
Philip Johnson coined Intelligent Design (ID). It is the high mathematical improbability of a complex system—evolving from a less complicated approach. Although ID is pseudoscientific, its proponents are biologists, doctors, physicists, and scientists.
DNA: A dead end for Evolutionists
A perfect example of ID is the mathematical complexity of DNA. Evolutionists who insist DNA is proof of evolution are the height of foolishness. The more scientists attempt to decipher DNA, the more they expose its complexity.
Law of probability on a single cell
A single cell holds 42 million protein molecules. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The probability of an adequately folded chain of one-handed amino acids (joined by peptide bonds) happening “by chance” is 10^164 chances.
In short, the law of probability computes it at about “three hundred trillion trillion trillion” chances, and this is just for a single chain.
The “heart brain”
In 1991, neuroradiologist Dr. J. Andrew Armour discovered that the heart has an intrinsic cardiac nervous system or “little brain.” It has approximately 40,000 neurons, similar to neurons in the brain. This means that the heart has its own nervous system. Its own neurons, called sensory neurites, communicate with the brain. [Heart Math]
Mammalian “brain complexity“
Scientists used to believe that as animals got more intelligent and their brains got bigger, the connections inside the brain would get more complicated.
A Tel Aviv University study in 2020 compared brains from various animals, including mice, dolphins, and humans, and discovered that they share similar levels of complexity in how they connect and share information.
“The brains of all mammals, from tiny mice through humans to large bulls and dolphins, exhibit equal connectivity, and information travels with the same efficiency within them.” [Science Daily]
This challenges the notion that human brains should be significantly more complex than other animals and contradicts the idea that brain complexity should increase over time, according to evolution. [ICR]
Clearly, brains were designed to work well from the beginning.
Intelligent planning, not evolution
Biogeography is the distribution of species and ecosystems in geographic space and geological time. Evolutionists use it to suggest things move to settle into place, thus sharing molecular structures and habits—proving evolution in motion.
However, it is not the same as evolving. What it proves is intelligent planning, not evolution.
Great is our Lord and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.
2. Evolution cannot explain Irreducible Complexity
Biochemist Michael Behe coined irreducible Complexity (IC). He defines it as a single system composed of several interacting parts. Removing any one of the parts causes the system to cease functioning effectively.
Over the last 25 years, through nanotechnology, scientists discovered a labyrinthine of turbines, miniature pumps, sliding clamps, complex circuits, rotary engines, and machines for copying, reading, and digital editing information in a living cell. [S. Meyer, Discovery Institute]
These circuits and machines depend on the coordinated function of many separate parts.
For example, bacterial cells are propelled by miniature rotary engines (flagellar motors) that rotate at speeds up to 100,000 rpm as if a car company designed it. [S. Meyer]
Complexities of the earth species
Homologous features of animal species on earth seem to support evolution. For example, evolutionists say humans came from monkeys. To prove it, there should be hundreds or thousands of missing skeletal links, at the least, to prove transition.
Certain animals, like the Komodo Dragon’s saliva, can kill others but never poison themselves or another Komodo. Bombardier beetles can defend themselves by squirting boiling acid. It does it by mixing two chemicals into two compartments inside its body.
How can a bacteria or acid be generated without killing its host during evolution? The mathematical chances are just impossible. Unless, of course, they were created altogether with intelligent intention.
Humans are far more complex and couldn’t simply have evolved.
Absence of transitional fossils
The absence of identified or direct transitional forms between humans and apes is the strongest argument against the theory of evolution. If evolution is true, enumerable transitions must be observable across successive generations.
However, despite billions of people today, who allegedly descended from apes, no conclusive evidence of embedded or discovered transitional forms exists.
Despite countless millions of fossils discovered, not a single transitional fossil was ever found. Hence, NO empirical proof exists that macro-evolution has ever happened. [Schwartz]
The Archaeopteryx hoax
Hailed as a link between reptiles and birds, the first of 13 Archaeopteryx fossils was discovered in 1861, two years after Origin of Species was published.
But it was a fossil forgery. All Archaeopteryx fossils are from an area in Germany where compsognathus fossils are common. The compsognathus was a tiny dinosaur, a bipedal theropod the size of a turkey.
Below is the image of the identical Archaeopteryx (left) and compsognathus (right) skeletons. The only difference is that feather imprints are pressed onto a cement medium and brushed onto the fossil rock.
Its color and texture do not even match the fossil rock. In addition, the feathers appear pristine and lay flat. All known bird fossils show the feathers twisted and scrunched up, resulting in being buried in mud before fossilization.
Most Archaeopteryx fossils show forged etched lines suggesting feathers, again with the cement medium that stands out from the fossil rock background. In short, we were lied to by a famous book titled “Archaeopteryx the Primordial Bird. [A Case of Fossil Forgery]
The Cambrian Period
When Darwin published ‘On the Origin of Species’ in 1859, the Cambrian Explosion (during the Cambrian period) was the most significant challenge to his position. [Answers in Genesis]
An “eruptive evolution” is inconsistent with the typical gradual pace of evolutionary change that Darwin claims. [Biologos]
Abiogenesis is an evolutionist’s oxymoron
Evolutionists agree that a paper clip, a non-living thing, is intelligently designed. Yet they insist that the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems are not.
Louis Pasteur disproved that spontaneous generation, also called abiogenesis, is a theory that life arose from non-living matter. The maxim “Nothing comes from nothing,” argued by Parmenides, isn’t rocket science. Abiogenesis is loudly ridiculous.
Only an omnipotent being can create something from nothing, including Jesus in the equation.
Through Jesus, all things were made; without Him, nothing was made that has been made.
“For this is what the Lord says, He who created the heavens. He is the God who formed the earth and made it. He established it and did not create it as a waste place but formed it to be inhabited. I am the Lord, and there is no one else.”
3. Evolution is impossible, given the structure of the universe
Fine-tuning of the cosmos
Our solar system has to be in perfect synergy to support life on Earth. A minor deviation in the earth’s spin, tilt, gravitational constant, and even shape would make it unstable and unsuitable for life as we know it.
- If the sun were closer to Earth, we’d be toast.
- The moon is perfectly positioned. If the gravitational pull is less or more substantial, it will disrupt the earth’s waters, flora, and fauna. The moon also helps shield us from asteroids.
- If the planets switched positions with Mars, the temperature would be -80 °F (60 °C). Mars has no rain or clouds, and humans won’t survive.
- Without the moon and planets like Jupiter, the earth will constantly be bombarded with asteroids and comets.
- If the earth spun faster, it would affect the wind, producing erratic weather.
An expanding universe
Many evolutionists agree the universe is expanding in the same way that they agree with the (second) law of thermodynamics. In simple terms, (second law) thermodynamics means all things naturally tend to become more disorganized over time and decay—rather than becoming more organized.
An expanding universe is proof that God exists. Although God rested on the seventh day, it doesn’t mean He stopped creating.
Therefore, whatever little we know now about the universe becomes insignificant. What we’re sure of is that our solar system makes it a perfect place for our planet to thrive, demonstrating intelligent creation. [Genesis History]
Assuming another dimension exists, the multiverse will be a big problem for “naturalists” (evolutionists). The constants (universal laws) could have been set to anything in the Big Bang, but the constants somehow led life to form.
For an “intelligent life” to happen at random is IMPOSSIBLE because the odds against “perfect fine-tuning” are astronomical — a multiverse theory solves it.
Instead of one universe with optimal constants, you have zillions each, with its laws. Anything is possible. How convenient for atheists to disprove God.
Today, more kids believe evolution is a fact, and a multiverse proves it. Marvel movies about a multiverse do NOT prove anything.
Even with Weak or Strong Anthropic Principles, the complexities of the cosmos extrapolated by a “small brain,” no matter how genius, remains a “tiny brain.” The most straightforward answer can best explain the origin of life; God said so.
Even if cosmic inflation is actual, it requires a “leap of faith” to believe in a multiverse, according to physicist Paul Davies. The conundra on how the cosmos exists has a simple explanation. Occam’s razor would best apply, “God said so.”
UFO, Mars, Panspermia theory
UFO is perhaps the most famous evidence of evolution—even if there’s no real evidence. By assuming there are aliens, advocates can claim these beings have evolved into higher beings while humans are still at a primitive stage.
Evolutionists use Mars as a cosmic model for evolution. Assuming there are biosignatures on Mars, there are no energy sources—Mars is a dead planet. Even if H2O is present, space radiation is too high, and terraforming is impossible.
The panspermia theory supports the idea that microorganisms could randomly appear anywhere in the universe, distributed by space dust, meteoroids, asteroids, comets, or planetoids. Thankfully, many scientists find the idea ridiculous.
Expanding universe: God continues to create
For atheists, an expanding universe means it is evolving, but He continues to create for those who believe in the Judeo-Christian God. After all, He only rested on the seventh day. It did not say God stopped creating.
Scientists expected that the universe would have slowed down as time went on after an estimated 14 billion years since the Big Bang. However, the opposite is true. “The universe is not only expanding, but it is expanding faster and faster,” [Kathy Romer]
Dark matter: Something is causing the expansion
NASA scientists are baffled and say that the acceleration is something weird. “No one expected this, no one knew how to explain it, but something was causing it,” said Dr. Kathy Romer of NASA Dark Energy Survey through DailyMail.
Mars Propaganda: Scientists insist life is viable on Mars, even if temperatures can go as low as -195 °F. To postulate there was once life on Mars implies humankind is not unique; aliens are real; evolution is scientific; the story of Genesis is fiction. The truth is, Mars colonization is “stupid and non-sense,” says former astronaut Bill Anders.
The heavens tell of the glory of God, and their expanse declares the work of His hands.
4. The layers of the earth are a testament to a creator
The Earth’s atmosphere is a complex and purposeful design that supports life by providing the right air pressure, temperature, and composition. It is easy to assume that the ozone layer and mesosphere are accidental. Still, it is a crucial design element that protects life on Earth from harmful radiation and meteors not present on neighboring planets.
- Troposphere: This is the lowest layer of the atmosphere where most of the earth’s air mass is concentrated.
- Stratosphere: Above the troposphere is the ozone layer, protecting us from harmful solar ultraviolet radiation.
- Mesosphere: Above the stratosphere, it protects the earth from meteoroids, which burn up upon entering this layer.
- Thermosphere: It is where the Northern and Southern lights occur, and it absorbs harmful X-rays and ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
- Exosphere: The outermost layer of the atmosphere and merges into outer space. It’s the layer where satellites orbit the earth.
The earth is 6,000 years old, not billions of years
The evolution theory depends on the “great age of rocks” calculated by a “geologic timescale.” However, the measure was recently invalidated by laboratory experiments. [Irish Times; French Academy of Science, Geological Society, Fusion]
Fossils do not take millions of years to form, which is consistent with the account in the Bible. The timeline presented in Genesis, through the death and resurrection of Jesus, suggests a 6,000-year timeline for the creation of the universe.
Age dating is a belief-driven process
Protein decay rate
ICR’s Dr. Brian Thomas asserts that age dating is belief-driven, and scientific decay processes cannot precisely determine an object’s age. The ICR uses protein decay rates as an age indicator, suggesting that proteins can last a long time but not millions of years. Hence, assuming something is a million years old based on the decay rate is inaccurate. [ICR]
The paradigm always rule
Age is calculated based on assumptions. Therefore, you can get any age you want based on the assumptions you make. But you cannot test this assumption because we cannot observe the past.
Ergo, if an unacceptable date is obtained from a dating process, the assumptions are modified until the date fits the paradigm or the narrative.
Mineral, rock, and petrified tree formation
Scientists assign hundreds of millions of years to certain fossils. It’s like cherry-picking numbers to fit the evolution theory. Simply, they’re making guesses, Dr. Thomas said.
“Creationist preacher” John Adolfi shows evidence of rapid aragonite formation in a water pipe, suggesting stalactite-like minerals can form in 80 years, not millennia.
Another example is folded rock formation, which scientists say can take millions of years. Clays and soft rocks can bend in a matter of hours, becoming rock-hard as years go by. We see the same pattern in striations where mountain ridges can form over the years.
A recently discovered vertical petrified stump in Arizona suggests that petrification can occur rapidly, taking less than a hundred years instead of millions of years. In addition to proving Noah’s great flood. [ICR]
The point is applying evolutionary theory to date geological or biological specimens is a philosophical concept, not a scientific observation.
The universe declares God is true, and His name is Jesus — He offers redemption from sin!
Christians have evidence that God is real because of the historical Jesus, miracles, and fulfilled prophecies. Jesus promised to save those who believe in Him from the coming wrath of God. The question is, are you willing to believe? (John 3:16)
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
5. Challenges to the evolutionary predictions
Bacteria, foundational to the earth’s ecosystem, serve as decomposers, recycling essential chemicals like nitrogen by breaking down organic matter. While evolutionary theory suggests that simple prokaryotes evolved into complex eukaryotes, the remarkable properties of bacteria challenge Darwinian claims. [ICR]
Bacterial DNA replication, a complex process involving bidirectional replication and enzymes like topoisomerases, defies the notion of evolving through random genetic changes.
Furthermore, the compacting of DNA through supercoiling, which also acts as a messenger conveying environmental information, highlights the intricacy of bacterial design. These features raise skepticism about bacteria’s origin and evolution as proposed by Darwinian theory.
Over the past hundred years, scientists have studied fruit flies to understand how evolution works. They tried different ways to make the flies change and become better, but it didn’t happen. [ICR]
Mutations, which are like genetic mistakes, didn’t lead to positive improvements as expected. Even when they messed with certain genes, it mostly resulted in weird, non-functional changes.
This raises questions about the idea that mutations are the main force driving evolution.
Coelacanths were once considered transitional forms in evolution, with their wrist-like bones thought to be evolving into legs. “Coelacanth fishes first appeared (evolved) 400 million years ago – 200 million years before the first dinosaurs.“
However, their discovery (by accident) in 1938, alive and well in deep-sea environments, shattered this idea. [UOP]
Modern coelacanths expertly use their limb bones to control their swimming, not for walking on land. The presence of coelacanths in Cretaceous layers challenges the concept of geological eras, but it aligns with the Flood model of earth history, suggesting catastrophic burial and preservation.
