What I Mean By UNCHANGED Animals (For Will)


Will, I have drawn a picture for you. Like most evolutionists you think I don't understand evolution, but in the picture I have represented the correct claims of evolution, in the green-zone. Notice the actual facts are drawn in the pink-zone.

Yes, we know evolution can incorporate the pink-zone into it's theoretics and rather amusingly, call it 'evolutionary -stasis', but the point is, the actual facts we find are shown in the pink zone. The green zone can represent conjecture, speculation, fantasy, or fiction.

My point is that on a LOGICAL level, yes, evolution can cope with stasis, but notice the facts only show it. So THIS is why the unchanged organisms are so important. Here I have drawn a Coelecanth as our representative, but you could use any organism on the list of basically unchanged organisms. Here is the picture:



So as you can see, I don't misunderstand evolution, I just give it it's logical value, compared with deductive, proven facts. (Little value) Here is the list of unchanged lineages. (notice on the picture there are several lineages, but the one that matters logically as deductive proof, is in the pink zone)Those other evolutionary lineages are propositional, but the lineage of Colecanth-Coelecanth, is INDISPUTABLY PROVEN.

LIST of unchanged lineages:

The Coelacanth Fish (340 million years old) 
Gingko Trees (125 million years), 
Crocodiles (140 million years), 
Horseshoe Crabs (200 million years), 
The Lingula lamp shell (450 million years), 
Neopilina Molluscs (500 million years), 
The Tuatara Lizard (200 million years).
Avocets (65 million years)
Wollemi Pine (150 million years)
Ferns (180 million years)
Jellyfish (500 million years)
Alligators (75 million years)
Gracilidris Ant (15-20 million years preserved in amber)
Turtles (110 million years)
Gladiator Insect (45 million years)
Lace Bugs (15 -200 million years, amber)
Starfish (500 million years)
Bats (48-54 million years)
Golden Orb-Weaver Spider (165 million years)
Pelican Spider (44 million years)
Shrimp - (100-300 million years)
Rabbitfish - (150 million years)
Gall Mites - (amber - 230 million years)
Sponge, Nucha naucum - (220 million years)
Octopus - (90 million years)http://creation.com/fast-octopus-fossils
Dragonflies. (can't find a date, but they were a lot bigger but that's all, I guess the Carboniferous)
Laonastes Rodent (10 million years up, can't find exact date)
Millipedes. (3-400 million years, aprox)
Sharks: (450 million years)
Vascular plants, land plants. (400 million)
Eukaryote cells (2.7 billion years)

(There would be green-zones for all of these, TOO, so I don't misrepresent evolution, as it is represented in the picture.) as I explained at the EFF forum message #67 of The unchanged list of organisms, thread, when we find an Ambulocetus, and the other representatives of whale-evolution, these would be in the green-area, LOGICALLY, because they don't prove it happened that way, it is only a proposition, and these lineages sometimes change, as evolutionists change their minds about lineages, PROVING they only have propositional, speculative value. but when you find a fossil of a Coelecanth unchanged, and they still live today, you would have a lineage that is 100% proven, because at least one lineage MUST have led to the modern Coleecanth.

M U S T have. There is NO OTHER possibility. This is of overwhelming logical importance. Because you could fiddle all day long with the green-zone, and evolutionists do, changing it, changing their minds, etc..but you can't change the pink zone, as it is a PROVEN lineage.

So the actual facts, support Created Kinds. (Baramins)

Transitionals Don't Exist And Never Did

Previously I wrote this blog entry: What is a true transitional?

Logically we have to qualify what a transitional is. I defined it as a species between designs. For example an ape, whether extinct or extant is designed to be arboreal, and thereby dwell in trees, but a human is a bipedal designed to walk uprightly on two legs. So to transition you need to go through many imperfect stages in between the two states of being.

Logically, just now think, given there are millions of species on earth, how many organisms should look anatomically CLUMSY, because they are transitioning, in an 'imperfect stage' between what they were and what they're becoming? We should expect to see hundreds and hundreds of imperfect animals, like the ones they claimed to exist in the past like some sort of archaic-raptor, pre-avian.

Yet we see ZERO living transitionals. every organism, even Chimeras designed to live in two environments, are complete and whole designs.

--.Also, generations differ between seed plants and humans/apes, seed-plants have much quicker generations. Bacteria-years aren't the same as human years, 200 years for us might well be a million years for bacteria - so we should see plenty of evolution on earth, but we don't see any.

But the main point of argument is that because every organism has a different rate of generation, evolution should be shown to be at very different stages, for different creatures. A bacteria-year is not a human year, and a seed-plant year is not a human year. It differs greatly across the spectrum of life, which means logically we should expect to see hundreds of imperfect, transitioning creatures.

To argue, "But we all evolved from the same ultimate ancestor, so we are all equally evolving," - that is not a line of reasoning that holds water, because evolution is supposed to be always able to happen and is supposed to have created everything. For it to hide all of it's transitional species from us, would be quite ridiculous to expect.

Before you dismiss what I say, just think about it for a moment - how many imperfect species would have to exist before a Crocodilomorph, (an arboreal, imaginery lizard-type thing), glided with 'flaps' an eventually became a bird? How many 'transitions' of imperfect, crude, blatantly evolutionary, 'stages' would have to exist? The same question can be asked for whales - a quadruped land-mammal is designed to walk on all fours, and a whale is designed to be a mammal of the sea, so then how many imperfect transitions would we expect to see? Between any such niches, we expect crude transitionals to exist. Think of an ape now, trying to evolve into a Biped - would it not look crude to see the ape-man living on the plains, away from trees, his ungainly walk, - yet when we see a human or a horse walk, they walk with complete grace.

That is because humans and horses were designed for land, and apes were designed for trees.

CONCLUSION: I expect to see 'transitionals' everywhere, if evolution is so prevailent in nature. I see none. Furthermore I see that every species is a whole design, viable, with all of the tools needed to do it's job, perfect for it's specific job. This consolidates the fact of design in nature, and the absence of any true evolution. It is inescapable, even all of the nature programs by the likes of Attenborough, can only showus already-perfect designs, that astonish us all. But where are all the crude designs we would expect to see, if evolution is responsible for amphibians, reptiles, mammals, etc - we are told evolution created everything, yet we see it creating nothing, because there is no such thing as any genuine transitional creature. It's the same in the fossils, you don't find, 'imperfect' morphs - even think now of Archaeoptic-tricks, their fave dino-bird, yet even that was a perfect flyer, a Chimera with no imperfections. Indeed, every fossil they ever found of extinct organisms, also just happened to be whole and perfect designs. We don't see transitions in fossils, nor do we see them in the living. Think of how many millions of forms of life there are, and every form is perfect, not in 'transition', NOT imperfect, but actually perfect.

Just take any one species, and ask yourself, 'is this an imperfect transition between states'.

I'll pick one for you, a spider. It is, whole as a design, in every sense of the word. Not only can it produce glue with the correct viscosity to catch prey in it's web without them bouncing off, but it can also create the different types of silk needed, both for web and for sheet-webbing. It also has the correct oil so it doesn't stick to it's own web. It also has the correct vibrating muscular apparatus to detect vibrations through it's leg tips, from the web it has created, with the correct spokes on the web, and the correct software to enable it to build the web.

Now - what was it before and what is it transitionning into? NOTHING. There are no transitionals for it, nor is it one, nor will it ever be. The same can be said of every organism, a whole list of, 'correct' anatomy is in every design of creature, and none of them appear to be in 'imperfect transitions', and clearly none ever have been, whether fossilized or alive.

Don't believe me? Then think of a fossil - a complete fossil, was it a complete creature, could it do it's job? I shall pick one for you - a Pterosaur. It had everything it needed, even a pteroid bone. No transition, it was whole. Same can be said of all of the dinosaurs, and everything ever fossilized - whole and complete, not, 'imperfectly transitioning'. Even all of the Cambrian creatures, the earliest living things, were complete, the trilobites compound eye being perhaps the most sophisticated eye in creation.

Does God Lack Imagination?


The common evolutionary claim in regards to Ideal Archetypes or Homologies, is that God might lack imagination, for why does each vertebrate have a backbone? Why do they all share the same bone-plan, the Ulna and Radius, and so forth. Which is like asking: "Why do all cars share steering wheels?"

This is a simplistic argument because obviously nobody on earth would guess that a horse shared a bone-plan with a bat, if they had not already seen the bones of both horses and bats. Which shows that actually, pertaining to imagination, bones aren't all that important, if they are shared because the various function for the same skeleton, is, well - highly varied. Let's face it, nobody is going to say that there is "too striking a similarity" between humans and birds, unless they concentrate solely on diagrams of the skeletons, and remove all of the astonishing differences between birds and humans.

So I think this deductively shows that taking parts of a composition that match, can mislead our imaginations. For example, if we only shown the parts a plane and car shared, we might come to the incorrect conclusion that planes and cars must have had a shared ancestor, because of the shared elements of design.

Logically, the fact that the same vertebrate-plan can be stretched across the most immense spectrum and there can be so many dynamic functions from the same plan, actually shows that God must be able to take one idea, and use it in a million different ways. Logically this can be seen in the differences that exist, that you can have the same skeletal-plan for a horse as you can a bird, the same for a bird as you can a tortoise.

Conclusion: The, "God is limited in imagination" argument in regards to vertebrates, is a very weak argument.

Moreover, we can see that necessity has a part to play, which again is logically provable, quite easily. For nobody would ask to see a Butterfly's bones, nor would they ask to see a Snake's ulna. So clearly some types of animals don't need to share the vertebrate plan, depending upon their weight, and design. Yet evolutionists complain that vertebrates share a plan, yet they share a plan because they are made to, like we would equally state: "footballers share football skills." Well, of course - that's the whole point. God designed the vertebrate plan, and within that plan there is a myriad of different functions. There are major morphological differences too, anatomical differences. Reptiles are cold-blooded and mammals are warm-blooded.

There are two ways to see this issue in regards to why God did it this way. The most likely explanation is that He knew that bones would be good girders for land-animals of a certain weight. This doesn't mean that there are no such things as land invertebrates with exoskeletons, but in regards to light-weight, strength, practicality, God designed one common skeletal plan, and modified it pertaining to each organism, which actually shows tremendous intelligence, because it's akin not to killing two birds with one stone, but rather killing hundreds of birds with one stone. God had an idea that a skeleton would work, but He chose to create the one correct skeletal structure that would work for a huge variety of creatures. This is exceptional. As for His imagination, that is represented by the unique differences even within vertebrates. From horses to bats, birds to people, rats to toroises, the spectrum is immensely imaginative, each kind having it's own special, recognizable characteristics.

Unique Designs In Nature

One element of Design is the ability to create something that solves a problem with a specific design. so for example, wheel-spin is a problem in cars, and the novel design to solve the problem was the clever idea of the differential.

In the same way, if evolution is false and Creation is true then we would expect sometimes, where there is a strange necessity, for there to be a novel design, a very clever solution in place, that is neither homologous nor homo-plastic, or if it is homo-plastic, then it is shared very little, in nature. The reason people might say, "oh but where is the Creator's imagination if there are very few unique designs?" But one has to remember the numbers involved, there are billions of designs of species, all possessing NEEDS. One name for God is Jehovah Jireh, which basically means, "The Lord Who Provides". Yet we only have a few designs of land-vehicle with the differential example. Anything four-wheel is likely to have the same design. (analogous)

The Seahorse:
"It is the only fish that swims upright, and achieves this by having a special bubble inside its bladder. Sensitive cells at the top of the bladder detect when the bubble is in the wrong place and the animal moves until the bubble feels right."
(http://creation.com/sea-horse)

It should be noted that evidence of unique and clever solutions in nature, would be expected to be there if there was an immensely intelligent designer behind organisms.

1. The actual creation of a strange organism actually CREATES problems. Note with the Seahorse, the fact that it swims upright creates a necessity for it's bubble-gut, (as opposed to it's bubble-butt). ;-)

Think how many problems occur when you think to create yourself a Giraffe? I mean, let's not forget that a Giraffe doesn't come complete, it actually starts off as a round blastocyst, a simple spherical cellular condition, and must eventually morph into the immensely complex and oblong shape.

Both the evolutionary definitions of convergence and divergence can be amalgamated both into the Designer's Convergence and necessity/constraints..

What do I mean? Well, all land-animals share the same design-plan for bones and they all have eyes, but eyes and bones would be examples of designer-convergence. But an analogous feature would be there because of constraints. The wing for example, is simply the best design for the job so if the designer wants both a bird and a bat, He gives them both wings but find multiple ways of achieving the same solution. This would show remarkable wisdom and intelligence because it shows, with the more analogs you collect, that He is capable of solving the same problem in numerous ways. But often people don't consider this.

With echolocation, whales, bats and oil-birds all have echolocation but this is by necessity because of where they are designed to live for the use of sonar. (Analogous). Basically the same design in totally different creatures, in different environments.

I think it can be concluded that in nature there is a very large span of over-lapping not because the designer doesn't have an imagination but because certain designs simply work best. But in cases where there are no homologous or convergent features then we can spot unique designs.

Here are some more unique designs that are not homologous or convergent but are a third option of unique necessity.

- Human Foot
- Contraflow Avian Lung. 
- The Human Consciousness/Capacity.
- Sea Slugs
- Crustacean Eye.
- Eagle's Eye

Sea Slugs:
"Even more amazing is what happens to the stinging cells when they reach the sea slug’s stomach. There are tiny tubes lined with moving cilia (hairs), which link the stomach to waving spurs on the sea slug’s back. The sea anemone’s stinging cells—so fatal to other organisms—are transported from the stomach, up those tiny tubes, to the tips of the spurs. There the sea slug stores those stolen weapons to use in its own defence, shooting them at any fish which dares to attack it!"
(http://creation.com/sea-slugs-leave-darwins-theory-slipping)

Lobster's Eye:
"The unique design of the eye of the lobster is one such example that has been intensely studied to help understand how it allows some organisms to see in low light and murky waters. Rather than bending (refracting) the light to focus the image on the retina, several of the long-bodied decapod2 crustaceans (shrimps, prawns, crayfish and lobsters) possess reflecting compound eyes. Unlike the more common compound eyes of insects, which have hexagonal facets, the lobster eye design incorporates square facets that are arranged radially to form an optic array with a 180° field of view.3 The geometric assemblage of facets has all of the hallmarks of intelligent design and defies attempts to explain it through natural mechanisms"
(http://creation.com/lobster-eye-design)

And my favourite unique design with the elongated finger and pteroid, the;

Pterosaur:
"However, we have reported on recent discoveries that pterosaurs had a complex wing anatomy, with muscles and nerves, and a large brain region to process the signals.1 This enabled them to fly more smoothly and efficiently than fixed-wing aircraft. And fossil trackways showed they could also land elegantly.But what about the initial take-off? Earlier calculations had overlooked a tiny bone called the pteroid".
(http://creation.com/pterosaurs-flew-like-modern-aeroplanes)

Of course it should be noted there are no "evolutionary histories" for such intelligent designs. Doubtless there might be a few negligible candidates, posed by evolutionists, rather than genuine transitional chains (bellows-lung to contraflow for example). And one must wonder how a Pterosaur used it's elongated finger on the way to evolving flight, perhaps for picking it's nose? ;-)

(All links and quotes from Creation.com, and all credit to that website for the information quoted.) - Doubtless there will be many more unique designs I have yet to learn about, and given there are billions of species and only a limited number of environments, then SOME sharing (analogue) is to be expected, but this shouldn't mean the design is of less value. Vehicles share wheels and differentials, but they are no "less" designed.

More About The Fossil Order


Daren Hew (an objective agnost) said: "There are many other phyla that you wont find in the Cambrian. You wont find any bony fish or shark teeth in Cambrian strata for example, despite the existence of said fossils in upper strata. (There are plenty of bottom-dwelling bony fish, like flatfish that didn't get preserved in Cambrian fossil beds)"

I would say though, that since there are thousands of marine forms, should we expect a few not being there to be all that relevant? There would have been perhaps more that were obliterated. I mean, eventually, chance alone is going to create the possibility of certain burials based on whatever creatures were in that place of the particular deposition. If we DON'T assume long-ages, then the sharks in the upper-layers would also have been alive along with the organisms in the Cambrian, if most or all of the layers were part of the same flood. So logically, really all we need is sharks to be present, in any layer, if all of the layers were laid down at the same time, over weeks and months, by inundation. 

It depends on how we interpret the record. Most creation-scientists argue that fish can escape, and indeed fish are fast, but slow-movers don't. Nevertheless there is evidence of vertebrates in the Cambrian. Here are the links to the scientific articles:

HERE


"However, just last year a team of nine scientists reported well-preserved fossils of two different kinds of agnathan fish from China found in Lower Cambrian strata.10,11 The fossils are described as ‘the most convincing Early Cambrian vertebrates ever found’,11 and extend the fossil range of fish by at least 20 and possibly 50 million years in evolutionary thinking. Vertebrates had now been found at the base of the Cambrian along with all the other multi-celled animals."

Quote From:

If the Cambrian, upper or lower, does not express a significant passage of time, then to find a vertebrate in the Cambrian would be enough to prove they existed at the same time of the other marine organisms, if the Cambrian is not an "era". So I can't just ASSUME the truth of the Cambrian being an evolution "era" as that would be to assume what evolutionists have to prove, on their behalf.

No but rather, it is usually requested we provide an, "out of place" fossil. This is impossible if none can be found, but even when on occasions they can be found, the scientists will then conclude the following type of reasoning:

For example they might say: "So now we have to understand how vertebrates evolved earlier".

So those who say, "show me X and this will falsify evolution", well, that's been done before and when we find X they change the goal posts.

What tends to happen, is they then request you score through another goal they create. If there is a request to find something in the Cambrian, and if it is at the top, the request will then change to, "now show me something at the bottom of the Cambrian". Pollen is found Pre-Cambrian because it is small. Surely that is enough? But the evidence is ignored, probably regarded as inexplicable, because it's only one example. (Yet Nye and the likes tell us we only need one example? Can you see the problem yet?)

All of this is assuming that the fossil record is an evolution record. Please note, we are just seeing fully formed known-forms, not an evolution in rocks. After all what are we discussing? We are discussing things that have always existed. Fish, sharks, pollen, etc....what has this got to do with evolution? Nothing.

So the "pushing back evolution" when it is "out of place" is common. It was thought mammals rose after the dinosaurs but now they are found in their bellies, you will get statements such as, "surprisingly mammals were already well developed at this stage" (example of reasoning). There is some evidence of birds in bellies of dinos too, and apparently some pre-dated dinos. (Or so I heard, IIRC)

One has to ask, logically - how many push-backs do we allow? At what stage can evolution be falsified if it is so plastic that it can be pushed back infinitely? Because we keep finding fully-formed, unchanged, sophisticated and therefore, "modern" forms. Eyes, like sophisticated Trilobite-eyes. Pollen, mammal-hair, unchanged organisms such as Jellyfish or snails, and all types of every order.

The additional problem is the apriori and posteriori claims, which highlights the difference between predictive evidence and post-knowledge evidence.

The fossil order was generally known when Darwin formed his theory, so he didn't predict the evolutionary order, he actually based it on the already-known fossil order. This is posteriori-evidence.(None-predictive)

But if he were to make a prediction that for example, "we will find intermediatesof bats", this would be apriori-evidence if it was found. (Predictive).

Predictive = Strong scientific evidence.
None-predictive = Weak scientific evidence.

To be fair to Darwin-ites, in whatever we say about the flood, if we say it because of our post-knowledge of the fossil record, then we say it in a none-predictive, weak and conjectural fashion, also.

The only difference is the bible itself, which said there was a worldwide catastrophe, BEFORE there was a discovered fossil record. This would imply a worldwide graveyard, whether it was preserved in rocks or not, left as remnants. It is reasonable to expect circumstantial remnants, given it has been shown that sediment has been found in fossilized throats. Given we know water can do this, certainly, and is the best explanation by far for all of the odd evidence around the world.

Friendly response to D.Hew's reasonings about science


Daren Hew said:

" Part of the philosophy of science is that science cannot prove anything. Scientific theories (like evolution) are not provable by their very nature but they can be disproven if their explanations contradict new evidence presented. The scientific community simply accepts them as the best explanation for observed phenomena. You are right, it is based on inductive reasoning and cannot be proven beyond a doubt. But are there better alternative explanations? "

The highlighted part of your quote is certainly correct. That's because an induction is always incomplete. The modus-tollens is applicable via falsification evidence. I agree.

You have cleverly noticed the problem of affirming the consequent. But you need to APPLY the tollens objectively. So then if evidence does not "fit" with divergence, or there is what is called in logical terms, a conspicuous absence of evidence for transitionals, then logically this counts as falsification evidence. Effectively you are not considering the falsification evidence, instead you are focusing on the posteriori explanations of why the evidence does not fit. (extra-hypotheses, such as the, "hard-type" hypothesis). If you are to be STRICTLY scientific, these explanations of why evolution is not there when it should be, should be regarded as EXTRA WEAK arguments, given they depend upon contradictory evidence.

I think it's important not to use the word, "rhetoric", towards me. Everything you learn from me can be googled and you will find it is true.

As for the, "this is the best explanation of data", the problem for that type of reasoning is that it contains premises that are omitted. Whether this be innocently, by scientists, or deliberate, they either know, or don't know that this entire position of methodological naturalism, relies on unproven assumptions.

Darwin said, in response to homology being potentially explainable by a common-designer, that it pleased the designer, Darwin said "but that's not scientific" (paraphrase), but the point is, LOGICALLY, MUST something be a matter of scientific explanation, in terms of methodological naturalism, only? Instead of dealing with that question, instead the scientists simply DECIDED to rule out a potential truth. To use semantics to define ANY talk of design, as, "none-scientific", is an issue of semantics, because if design holds "truth" then you have ostracized truth. 

The problem with such an unproven assumption can be shown with the following example:

Let's say a murder took place. Either Jane or Bob is guilty, it can only be one of those two. But now let's say we RULE OUT a potential truth that Bob done it. We can't say for sure he didn't but effectively we just don't want Bob to have done it, because if He did, that just doesn't fit with our beliefs.

Now we find finger-prints for Bob, but now we have to say that those finger-prints only APPEAR to incriminate Bob. Notice that logically, we can NEVER INFER "Bob", as we have guaranteed "not Bob", tautologically, by definition. Since Bob is out of the question, the only option left is to conclude that the evidence incriminates Jane, instead, because there was a murder. (Google: The Law Of The Excluded Middle).


CONCLUSION:

You see Daren, scientists are arguing in circles, tautologically, if they say, "evolution is the only explanation". This exclusive-argument is not logical, because as you say, either new evidence or unknown evidence might exist, that could explain the evidence. This is why evolutionists interpret the evidence as "evolutionary", because that's the only thing "science" allows them to do. So if they find a human foot-print that is not in line with evolution, they have to say the human foot-print is not human. Incredible, but true.

If top-scientists don't even know why an "appearance of design" is a poor argument, and they commit slothful induction by focusing on exceptions such as the laryngeal nerve, rather than the mountain of evidence for obvious construction of anatomy, and the thousands of contingency-plans in each organism, then this PROVES that it was NOT part of their education to learn critical-thinking, they were simply taught evolution. The, "only explanation is evolution" argument is essentially and indirect way of affirming the consequent.

If evolution then X, X therefore, "can only possibly be evolution".

Your whale-example was only a correlation or coincidence. (circumstantial) I would venture to say. No disrespect meant, I admit the evidence does "fit" of course.

(check out, "slothful induction" when it comes to design, heck read any article on CMI that discusses the 500 incredible anatomically designed contingencies in any animal, for every one thousand brilliant design-facts, an evolutionist has ONE complaint. Example, the pharynx/larynx. Forget the fact we can chew, swallow, speak, whistle, shout, whisper, smile, frown, breathe, eat and drink from one entry-point, and forget that we can drink upside down, eat upside down, forget that we can spit, laugh, lick, taste, singsneeze, cough, regurgitate, belch, Bork, and forget the perfect structure of the voice-box, forget this is all a neat package including aesthetics, and just focus on the fact that we can potentially choke. SLOTHFUL INDUCTION fallacy!)

They don't even know their own behaviour Daren, because these "experts" have no wisdom. You don't get to learn it at school. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom".

God Is Omni-Universe


There is a lot of common confusion pertaining to God's nature.

Usually there are some terms that can be inferred from the bible, that have credence when we attempt to define God in our limited capacity. But, there are a lot of modern definitions that are either misnomers, or strawman terminology. I refer to the "omni"-terms. such as, omnipotent, omnibenevolent, et al. Some of them are valid descriptions, some of them are NOT.

For example, the bible does not EVER state that God is, all-loving or all-benevolent. Usually non-believers will attempt to collect these terms in order to infer a logical paradox.

It should be noted that Christians have not attempted to collect such terminology themselves, but largely they are imposed upon us. They are modern definitions that largely can be termed as semantic-sophistry.

As believers, we infer things about God only from scripture and His creation.

If there is a particular omni-term that is going to be the most relevant and takes precedent above all the others, it is going to be the term, Omni-Universe. God is omni-universe. (All-united in purpose, nature, attributes, with diversity.)

This means, that God is, as best as I can describe it, according to His Word, is; All-united, being diverse.

This means that, the "Lord is one" (unity), yet, "I and my Father are one"(diverse). The Father, Son and Holy Spirit (diversity), yet they are all one. (Unity) = Uni-verse.

So this means that God's attributes are harmonious, complimentary, symbiotic or united.

So then to take certain modern-definitions of God that don't really match tends to not have much value, largely this type of argument can be regarded as vacuous sophistry.

To give an analogy. Imagine we only understand certain things about colour, limited data, which is analogous to our limited capacity to understand God. Would we not logically state, that if the spectrum-of-light incorporates red and blue, when they come together, this will rule out one or the other.

--> Blue or not blue. Red or not red.

You can surely then only have one or the other, if you assume there can be no unity, you would likely dismiss that both elements could be united, and make a third colour, purple. We see that in God's creation, many colours come together, even though they are different colours, they can merge.
 "For God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." (paraphrasing 1 John 1, IIRC)

The Word directly states God is light, so the nature of light in our universe is an important example, it shows how God is united yet diverse.

The problem with taking some omni-terms and pitting them against each other, is that you tend to judge the WHOLE from SOME. "Some ERGO all." (Fallacious)

Think about it in terms of this analogy, if we took two elements that make up a motor vehicle, and pit them against each other, then we do so fallaciously because we have to remove all of the unity. So for example, if we say that water is part of a car's system, and so is electric, we could then fallaciously state:

"Car's can't exist because water and electric do not mix."

This only works if you remove the unity of the whole.

Other examples of uni-verse things in the creation, is of course the universe itself, but within it, we find God's nature is displayed all around us. One example is the universe, one example is light, another is all of the animals and plants. When we look at all of the homologous structures of bones in vertebrates, they show the same basic design-plan but the shape and diversity is massive.(Universe). Another example is analogous features, such as wings. Evolutionists would call them homo-plastic, but we can see that we can have different wings, diverse in anatomy this time, but unified in function.

An example in the Word, is the fruit of the spirit, that all compliment each other despite being diverse;

Galatians 5:22;But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.

You might then say, "how can God kill, and be "good"- But justice doesn't rule out goodness. An executioner of justice doesn't have an evil motive, therefore there is no genuine contradiction.

CONCLUSIONS:

I think all of this shows that the omni-terms are a source of confusion for people. The term, "ALL" misleads people, If you instead say, "God is loving, good, powerful," you likely wouldn't mislead yourself, but when people use the term, "all" or "omni", they commit the fallacy of composition, by saying that the units indicate something about the whole.

Example:

A plane has rubber wheels, wheels are none-flying. Wheels are "all-round".
A plane has windows, windows are none-flying, Windows are "all-transparent"

ERGO, a plane can't be both all transparent and all rubber and all-round and it can't fly. (non sequitur) A plane actually consists of all the elements, just as part of a whole unit.(universe)

The omni-terms should raise danger-signs with any thinker, they seem to have taken on an agenda of their own!

What Is A TRUE Transitional Species?


I think logically, evolutionists must qualify a true-transitional. The claim everything alive is a transitional. This is a claim. We can't 'grant' their claim, without posing some very honest and objective questions. To merely assume we are transitional because that's, "what the science shows", for example, would be vague. If we truly see transitionals, then logically they have nothing to be afraid of if we define them, and evaluate the evidence.

I would post that is is possible to give examples of true transitionals, because they would be strikingly different to the animals we see in existence.

To give such an example, imagine an ape-like organism was trying to exist, more and more, in the open plains. Not only would such an animal observably be out-of-place, but the transition to biped would be marked by these species, because they would have an ungainly, crude and unbalanced gait. They would rock and roll their hips and shoulders. You could qualify them as true-transitionals, by showing that a real-life animal such as a horse or human, walks with complete grace, they are designed to walk. But this ape-man would not be designed to walk, his feet-hands, that are made for the trees, would be in 'transition'.

Other true transitionals can be IMAGINED. Think of something on it's way to becoming a bird or bat. Now we only pretty much see, full birds or bats, whether extinct or extant. But imagine how crude their transition might appear, while their limbs become wings. They would stick out like a sore thumb. The same could be said of a creature such as Ambulocetus, the drawings of him are so striking, he looks basically like some kind of monster or freak, if anyone came upon such a creature, they would be amazed by how crude and half-designed it appeared. (It should be noted, that the actual skeletal remains were few, and so the drawings are of course, artwork)

Logically I have established that a true-transitional, between environments, is pretty obvious, because we see from every creature alive, that they are designed to do what they do. Every single species just happens to be perfect, in the present. so the next question is, logically;

Why should we regard every extant animal as being a transitional, when logically it can be shown that they are designed for the environment they are in?

The reason we knew the ape-man was "crude" on land was because we compare him with true species that exist. So then logically, true species can't be transitional, if they highlight one by comparison!

Evolutionists say that we don't have to evolve. But they also say that lots of micro = macro, which is a contradiction, because obviously lots of micro can = nothing of interest, if things don't have to evolve. So naturally they will say that we shouldn't necessarily "see" the route of evolution extant species are walking the path of.

1. Extant species don't show what they are transitioning into.
2. Every extant and extinct species, are "complete" designs for their environment.
3. All forms to have ever actually proven to exist, make true-transitionals, "strikingly" obvious.

CONCLUSION;

It is perfectly rational to conclude that evolutionary philosophy is at play. There are no facts that have ever shown the existence of actual transitional creatures, only a handful of negligible candidates. Every organism on the planet is a marvel of engineering excellence to an off-the-scale degree.

Homology Of Vertebrates, Or Design Constraints?


With designed-things, sometimes there are design-constraints depending upon what the designer intends to achieve with a particular design.
   Bones, could be said to be, "God's Girders". The vulture has a bone structure that is not homologous in that the structure within a bone on it's wing incorporates a Warren's Truss.

Often homologous bones among vertebrates, are touted for the case of common ancestry, but upon investigation it can be shown that bones have to be in place for certain organisms. Of course, there are examples of invertebrates with exoskeletons, such as crustaceans like crabs. But for things that have to fly, for example, it makes sense to have lightweight feathers, and to have a lightweight frame (vertebrate). Largely if you look at the surface area of a bird's wing, those bones take up very little area, yet are strong and light. It wouldn't make much sense to have some kind of exoskeleton-type heavy structure. Also bats have a very thin layer of skin, both feathers and skin, respectively, are excellent designs. How the feathers grow and how they stick is incredible, the anterior and posterior barbules are an amazing locking system, you can actually see the hooks under the microscope.

We are commonly shown diagrams of comparisons, but usually the focus is upon the blueprint or plan for vertebrates. It can seemingly go something like this, generally, "One large, two large, lots of little, then five digits". (In regard to the forelimb)

But notice we are never shown something that breaks that plan completely, such as a snake. Since function would necessitate God's girders in particular places, it seems unreasonable to ignore the fact that a snake is an exception. Should it not simply be the "remains" of an ancestry? Yet if you look at the snake's skeleton, it is an amazing thing, all on it's own, as a singular design for it's job.

The common design-plan is there among those vertebrates that have the job of grasping, flapping or grabbing or digging in some fashion. Logically it can be shown that this design is by necessity. Evolutionists would argue that analogous features necessitate convergence, so it is a double standard to then complain if we say that certain designs work best, so we would expect them to be shared. For example, a bat's. "fingers", for want of a better word, are a frame for a wing, like a frame in some planes. However a horse would not have the five-digit "plan" incorporated, because there isn't a necessity. Nor would the snake, again, no necessity.

Here is a diagram I have drawn, to show a different way of seeing things. (Please notice, that if a limb has a similar design-constraint, we should expect more similarity. Different design-necessities, are written in different colours.)

So we would expect the bones of animals that trot, to look more similar than the bones of animals that flap wings, and we would expect flappers to looks similar, in turn.



Notice that humans and monkeys have a somewhat similar design-constraint, so we would expect them to look more similar to each other, like we might expect similarities between pigs and horses or dogs, etc....

(The pteroid bone is a rod-like element found only in pterosaurs)

Lampshades are logically homologous, by necessity, not relationship. They all necessitate a space for a lightbulb, generally a lampshade will have one large hole at the bottom, and one smaller hole at the top, for obvious reasons. Generally this is the plan, even though we see a very diverse range of colours and shapes/styles.

Logically bones are needed, for a certain weight/gravity ratio. We would not argue that a butterfly needs bones but we would argue that a vulture does. It makes sense that God's girders are strong but light, as shown with various different designs. Hollow, spongy, and the Warren's Truss type. Those are just three types.

Also bones, with joints, are basically going to be the same if limbs have similar jobs, whether they be arms or legs, we need to swing and retract the leg or arm. A hinge of some sort, is expected, unless there is no necessity, such as with snakes.


As we can see in this diagram, "convergence" is based upon a very narrow "scope". Clocks can be digital or analogue. Wheels all have to be round. But toys have a wide scope, there are limitless different toys. The designer of organisms, made organisms so precisely for certain jobs, that sometimes only one type of design seems possible, such as eyes for sight.

In the same way, fingers that can all touch, are very different in purpose than fingers that need to be fixed apart. A bats fingers are like a fixed-pitch rotor blade, if they change position, flight is lost.

Am I a Creationist? ( For D.Hew)


I must say I don't really think much about the term Young-Earth Creationist, and you got me thinking about it. (D.Hew). I've debated creation for about 10 years on and off, and I usually find it to be a useless and futile endeavor, but I must say Daren, your comments make me almost want to say of you, "Here is Daren, a man in whom there is no deceit". (Like Jesus said to Nathaniel)

In regards to my own belief system, you shown an acknowledgement of a logical inference, which was pleasing to me, that a person that strongly believes X to be the case, to be consistent, naturally would believe in all of the implications that X brings.

 There must be an ultimate source of truth to an ideology, and our basis for living according to what God has said, is by believing everything He has said (being consistent). If He hasn't said those things in His word, then why obey any of it? What, "God says" would be down to opinion.

I am a creationist, in the sense that I believe by faith that the statement in the New Testament is true, "we believe by faith the worlds were framed by God, the invisible created the visible" (paraphrase)

But I would describe myself as a, "bible-believing Christian". To call myself a YEC would also be deceitful, as it might imply that I claim some sort of scientific background. It would FAVOUR anti-theists to call me a YEC, because then they can claim I am a pseudo-scientist if I mention science.

For these reasons I usually use such phrases as, "creation-accepter" or, "designist", in reference to myself.

I see the statement "YEC", as problematic because it focuses on the age of something, which is historical science.

How can I then describe myself as a YEC when age doesn't even interest me? I believe the bible indicates an inference of about 6,000 years, I don't have any scientific validity for that belief, but that's okay, that doesn't mean that assigned evolutionary-dates are true anyway, for all I know, the earth might be 174.3 million years old. :-) If Noah built the boat 10, 000 years back, would it really bother me? ;-)

So I am a Creation-by-faith, bible-believing, Christian. :-) (although I think the creation is there for everyone to see, which is why I sometimes call myself a creation-accepter, because I accept creation as a reality, rather than reducing it to material causes.)

The Evidence Contradicts Darwin's Tree


I have drawn a diagram showing the beginning of Darwin's Tree, the first common ancestor in the past, then mathematically, that would lead to an increase in numbers, as gene pool/s diversify, populations split, and so forth. At the top we see 9 lifeforms.

According to evolution, as we go further back in time, there comes a time when the numbers MUST decrease until you get one ancestor. If I continued to draw the phylogenetic tree, 9 forms would lead to more branching, and more, until we end up with billions of species in the present day.

Mathematically and logically, this PROVES that Darwin's tree should show less and less diversity, as we go back in time, less and less branches, until there is a trunk. There is no escaping that there is a finite scale. If evolution is true, then this is what we would expect to see;


The blue branches show an increase in information that would allegedly be because of mutations adding information, so we would expect as we go further back in time, less and less information. Again, mathematically, this is inescapable, and evolutionists cannot argue that limitlessly diverse forms could exist, as we go further back in time. It's like adding, you start with 1, and go to a 100, you cannot, mathematically state that as we reverse the count, we would not expect numbers to be smaller. (Reductio ad absurdum)

The Cambrian explosion, the actual evidence, shows the opposite to the phylogenetic tree, Darwin's tree MUST decrease in branches, but the Cambrian shows a VAST scope of diversity. The Cambrian would represent a very bushy, diverse, information-rich, branching. We also see that gene pools, when they branch, become more homozygous. That is to say, they sacrifice information for the sake of survival;

-->(Group A) Species with eyes --> leads to two separate species, one with eyes(Group B), one without(Group C).
-To increase information in group C, you have to go back in time or reintroduce the genes from another population, (gene flow).

CONCLUSIONS:

We should see less and less forms in the past, as we go back further in time, with less information, as the numbers dwindle, as we count down to 1. Mathematically it is an inescapable inference. But the Cambrian, as old as it allegedly is, represents an exceedingly diverse, bushy branching. But Darwin's tree MUST show less branching as we go back in time, mathematically. It's not something that is down to opinion, because otherwise you have to argue that lifeforms have always existed. (Reductio ad absurdum) Eventually, numbers have to diminish.

We see the opposite to what evolution must state.

Post-hoc excuses can in no way represent a rebuttal of falsification evidence. If you are scientific, this evidence will mean more to you than making excuses for the evolution theory.



The below diagram shows what the actual evidence indicates. (although I have GRANTED common ancestry for the sake of argument.)

Design Unpacked (RAZD)

RAZD, in response to your post, I will put out this additional reading material, which obviously you have the freewill to undervalue for your own reasons.

 "what makes something designed, anyway? Can we determine if lifeforms are?" So to look at what a scientific theory theorizes, to the contrary of "design", is another undertaking. You might then think, "you dismiss the whole of what science says about it?" But that's not my argument either, I have said some things about science in this following blog entry;  http://creationworldviews.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/isnt-rejection-of-evolution-rejection.html

No, what I mean to say, is not that your points aren't merited, but rather to say that if we asked as to what makes a well cooked cake, then to then discuss a very famous chef, or the history of cooking, would be extraneous to the logic of the evaluation.

'What makes something designed?' Is the question. We are evaluating that specifically, without mentioning evolution.

SYLLOGISM:

All of the elements of a design make something a design. (Z)
X has all of the elements of a design,
Ergo X is designed. (Z)

(Disclaimer: you are right to then ask questions, such as, "what about none of the elements or a few?" but that opens a very great can of worms, I am only addressing the fullness of design, so to speak.)

Firstly, my first premise, "all of the elements make something a design", is a truism. It is sound because we have studied something that is actually designed, and those elements make something "designed", so if something has all of those elements, we can conclude it is designed, because those elements are that which makes something designed. Here is an equal analogy; If I am every element that makes a human, then I am reasonably a human. (Truism) (Law of Identity, X is X)

"X" Has all the elements of design, this premise is formally correct, as it qualifies itself, but the premise is false or true depending upon whether X truly does have all of the elements of sophisticated designs.

So the syllogism is sound, as long as the evaluation is sound. I will go through the elements of that which make something designed. (notice that it is pointless to question the elements, because they are only inferred from looking at ACTUAL, agreed upon "designs" anyway, such as cars or watches. (all people agree these things are designed.)

So let's come across that watch in a field again. WHY is it a design? What are those elements that make it so? Some investigation gives us the answers.


Precise Construction. Construction, where materials are manipulated into strange, specific, orderly relationships.

Artificiality, (so to speak). What I mean by this, is that materials that don't ordinarily have any natural use, have been taken and used. Manipulated into having a purpose that is intended for something.

Contingency Plans. When something exists that has complexity, problems, or potential problems arise, from that things very existing, so then if a problem arises, we see contingency plans put in place to deal with the problem.

Viability. This element includes contingency plans but also the solving of engineering problems. The two aren't quite the same, an engineering problem is a complex problem that arises, that could thwart the design itself. A design has viability, it works if all problems have been solved, and plans are in place.

Aesthetics. Usually sophisticated designs have an element of aesthetics. We see a Ferrari car is very attractive to the eye, or a butterfly or ladybird or flower or Peacock's tail. Usually there will be symmetry and colour. Aesthetics is an element of design because it's like the final touch, there is an Artistic element to design.

Wisdom/Intelligence. Whether it is a sophisticated code, such as binary code in computers, or whether it is an ingenius idea, to solve a very difficult problem. This much is obvious, when we look at a design. When we look at a differential, look how cleverly the simplicity of the meshing gears are, ultimately a simple arrangement, yet it took a very clever idea to come up with.

Conceptual/ Imagination. When we look at designs, we know that someone had to firstly have an idea, or imagine something that they wanted to achieve. When we OBSERVE a designed thing, the ultimate goal of the thing, SHOWS the idea behind the thing. To look upon a helicopter, we know just by looking at it that someone had to have an original idea, they imagined achieving a machine that could fly. We don't need to anything other than to see the concept in action, because with designed things, that is what we're seeing, someone's imagination, displayed.

Design itself, seems quite simple. This is misleading in that complicated science might seem to "trump" something simple-science, but really there is no argument that says that the answer must be a complicated, natural and scientific answer. Notice science is used here, operationally, just not in the same manner as tenuous, historical, inductive science. Darwin pitted a historical theory against the fact of design. But circumstancial evidence doesn't trump deductive, incontrovertible fact. 

To say, "an eye is designed to see" is not a claim, it is a description of a fact. That's all.

The Fossil Order


Over-emphasis on the Fossil order of organisms, can sometimes be conflated with the evolution theory.

Evolutionists will commonly ask, "Why isn't there a human in the Cambrian rocks?"

It can be hard to spot the fallacy, but it's a conflation of a theory with actual evidence. It can SEEM to favour evolutionists, but then that is the real trick isn't it.

Logically I can prove it doesn't favour evolution. on the below diagram I show a table with some balls I have scattered on to the table randomly. I have then split the table-top into three sections, and now, at a later stage somebody has come along and theorized that there is an order to the balls. That they tend to go, left to right, from red colour to blue, and then to green. If the person that believed that theory then said, "now you must show a green ball to be  found in the Pre-Cambrian section of the table!", would they be right to make that demand?

They would be wrong because I actually wouldn't find a green ball in the Pre-Cambrian section of the table, because none were scattered there, and where they were scattered has nothing to do with their theory, which came after the scattering, and is a separate matter, logically.



As you can see, the order of the balls has nothing to do with the theory of an order of balls. And in the very same way, evolution has nothing to do with what types of organism you will find in Cambrian rock. You can CLAIM there is an evolutionary reason for it, but as you see with my example, even if you can't find things you want to find, "out of place" this in itself proves precisely nothing.

You will never find a human in the Cambrian era because they did not happen to be preserved there. Largely marine life is preserved in that era. ( just like you wouldn't expect me to prove to you that you would find meat in a vegetarian restaurant but if you didn't know it was vegeterian when we entered the restaurant, that would be far more impressive. (predictive as opposed to none-predictive.)

Like with the restaurant, we already know the order of fossils. 

The Fossil Order and the Ideal Archetypes both preceded Darwin's theory, and are both posteriori (after the knowledge) facts. These two posteriori set of facts are now conflated, and the fossil order is synonymous with an evolutionary order, and ideal archetypes are now referred to as homologies. But as you can see, both set of facts were known before evolution and shouldn't be regarded as examples of evolution.

The Three Evolutionary Falsehoods Evolution Hides Behind


There are three major lines of evidence that don't fit with the claims of the evolution theory. (Please note we are speaking under logical notation, and what it demands, via objective scrutiny).

1. FIXITY. The lack of general change marked in the fossils. (Example; Trees, plants, animals, we can find a large degree of living organisms preserved in the record, that have basically remained the same kind of life-form over vast supposed eons of time, with only superficial changes).

2. LACK of supposed transitional lineages, in some cases, there isn't even a proposed ancestor, an example could be a monophyletic organism, with no relatives there, to claim ancestry. Darwin cited the missing forms that should have been there.

3. HOMOPLASY. When common ancestors can't be invoked because of homologous structures such as echolocation in bats, oil birds and dolphins, this evidence proving that it is a non sequitur to assume similar morphology = evolution.

Now here is the NAMES evolutionists give the three contradicting lines of evidence;

1. "Evolutionary" stasis. (Yet "stasis" = no evolution present!)
2. "Transitional" species. (Naming a species to be in transition, rather than proving it is one)
3. "Evolutionary" convergence. (Homoplasy, and of course, divergence would be through homology). (Yet examples such as this shows that similarities in creatures can be irrelevant, i.e. Not evolutionarily linked.)

Logically the problem is that you are taking evidence that goes against the evolution theory, and putting name-tags on the evidence. Superimposing an evolutionary meaning when objectively speaking, such evidence is counter to evolution.

Think of it like this; Imagine a woman gave birth to a son but she wanted a daughter very badly, so she called him by a girls name. Imagine she then penned onto his penis the word, "vagina", and she let his hair grow long. Logically, would this make the boy a girl? The answer is no.

Whether you call it homologous structures or you call them similar via convergence, the point is, the designs in animals don't show any evolutionary trends, any animal, at any time, can "break" the evolution story by being where it shouldn't really be. Mammals for example, such as Whales and Dugongs, should not be there but they are, or the Platypus, or our examples of echolocation.

The diversity of the organisms of creation, show no evolutionary history, just a sporadic display of unlimited imagination. Just when you think there is an evolutionary rule, it is broken, and they will find something silly, that is just way out of place.

If creation is true, the diversity should be expected and the rules should be broken, and we find both! Putting an evolution-tag on such evidence, won't fool wise people.

Isn't the rejection of evolution the rejection of science and evidence?


It's understandable that many people believe that to not accept biological evolution happened is to reject science/evidence. But if you reject apples, does that mean you reject all fruit?

If you reject the one part of an apple that is bruised, does that mean you reject the whole apple, and therefore reject all fruit?

People that accept creation, and reject evolution, what they really reject is the final conclusions of the theory of evolution. All of the investigative science and evidence that has went in to the evolution-theory, is largely accepted as true. For example, we accept that adaptation happens to species, that they can become specialized, that there can be beneficial mutations.

If evolution-theory is an apple, then we reject a bite of that apple, the bruised part of the apple. This does not mean that you have to reject the whole apple, and therefore all fruit.

WHAT IS EVIDENCE? (Do Creation-accepters, reject it?)

The parts we reject are the final conclusions, that must be treated as very great claims. This in itself means that logically and even scientifically, the evidence-demand GROWS. Evidence DIFFERS greatly, even the very same evidence can differ in value, depending on what your theory claims. You may think, "that's wrong", so I will give an easy example. Imagine we had the same evidence, a photograph of you flying like superman. We have one theory that you faked it, and one theory that you were a real-life superman. The evidence could be tenuous for one theory but strong for the other. Why is that? It's because the greater a claim is, the greater the evidence must be to support it. To claim that ultimately, trees, somewhere down the line, are related to fleas, is an astronomical claim by Darwin. So the evidence also must be astronomical. In reality, the evidence is not astronomical. Even Darwin admitted as to the poor areas of evidence for his theory. The burden of proof is still upon his theory, in these areas, logically.

If  evolution (X) is true Then (Y) evidence should follow, (Y) evidence follows, therefore evolution is true.(X) --(Affirmation of the Consequent).

The above form of argument isn't an attempt to say that evolutionists are arguing the fallacy, but I am showing the fallacy only to point out how evidence does not prove a theory is true. An inductive tally of confirmation evidence would allow a theory to be viable, given scientific rules, rather than true. A simple example is if you have a theory that only red balls are in a bag, and each time you pick out a red ball, this evidences your claim. If you pick out 50 red balls, this confirms your theory but doesn't prove it, because the 51st ball could be blue.

Part of the problem with evidence is that there is a spectrum of evidence. Not all evidence has the same value. An example is easy, just imagine the missing link came wandering out of the forest, extant, and could even speak a few words, an upright ape. This, as evidence would be so powerful as to be incontrovertible, but merely finding a somewhat interesting skull, from an extinct-osaur, would be tenuous, inductive, evidence, circumstantial. It would "fit" your theory, but it might fit any number of theories.

DIRECT EVIDENCE (FACTS, in the colloquial sense of the word.)

The immense design-complexity of living organisms is staggering to the point that it is almost incomprehensible. Think for a moment, every single design in every organism has a whole host of engineering problems that arise from that organism existing, and every single problem is solved (millions), and every single organism successfully replicates.

. The complexity of life does not fit evidentially, with the theory of evolution, and it's simple mechanisms are incomparably inferior to an omniscient mind, in direct comparison. To accept simple mechanisms over such a mind, is to betray the direct evidence that SHOWS that to get these organisms you would need, creativity, extreme intelligence, foresight to solve problems that arise, unlimited imagination.

Does evolution have these attributes? To say such design-problems would NOT be solved if you have extreme intelligence, is foolish. To say contingency plans could not be put in place if you had foresight, is again pointless. Let's face it, we all know that such attributes match the evidence and would explain all of it.

 When we hear scientists say things such as, "the genius of evolution" you have to remember that they are indulging in anthropomorphism, which happens when you give inanimate or none-human things, human characteristics. This anthropomorphic tendency on their part, does not prove that evolution has ANY matching abilities, what they have actually done is merely super-impose God's glory onto their theory. (i.e, they admit, by accident, that such design requires genius, which would actually come from God, and they instead offer praise to their theory, for accomplishing the feat they are observing.) But evolution has no genius or foresight, because it has no mind. People will also say, "the body is so clever". But the body, apart from your brain, has no consciousness. Any cleverness came from an outside source.
