Thanks for sharing this! As a teen, this was my original reason for rejecting fully naturalistic evolution, though I had no idea of any alternative to what I was being taught in schools, media, etc. I recognized that there was no conceivable feedback loop for an evolved ecosystem to maintain itself without spinning out of control as organisms in it changed. The Biosphere II mess a few years later, in the 90's, perfectly illustrated my point. Despite much intelligence being applied, the artificial ecosystem in BSII quickly came unglued and the environment became unlivable as most species quickly went extinct.
Dr. Henry Zuill, a Harvard-trained ecologist, published an article in Origins a few years ago that demonstrated this better than I could put into words, for which I thank him. But based on a letter I published in the CRSQ c. 1993 I can claim some kind of precedence on this point.
