Why would a fish that is adapting to a water environment grow legs and walk out on land?
Natural Selection, by definition, would select the legs out of the process because there would be no survival advantage in a water environment.
Nit Pick: It will only tend to survive more than it otherwise would have. There is no guarantee.
“Miller, in his famous experiment in 1953, showed that individual amino acids (the building blocks of life) could come into existence by chance.”
I wonder how controlled the environment was in which he did this.
Nonsense. It is not faith. Its only intellectual presumption. Faith is for things that are trustworthy.
anyone seen God Guts and Guns lately?
AND IT NEVER SHOULD BE! Doubt of the evolutionary origin of life automatically makes one a quack, and any such article should be mocked, marginalized, burned or whatever, but never seriously considered. And for the love of Darwin never ever ever ever presented to students! After all, that would be religious dogma!</satire>
Its “Snap You Finger” time again.
It also has to do with the hypothesis of abiogenesis, not the theory of evolution through natural selection.
Is it really too much to ask that people know and understand the difference if they want to be taken seriously?
The idea that life emerged “by chance” is not the foundation of evolution. The fact that evolutionists disagree amongst themselves about how it works does not by default prove that the world is 6,000 years old and the fossils are the remains of animals wiped out in a Biblical flood.
Evolution is not incompatible with faith; it can indeed be one of the many mechanisms used by the Divine to facilitate life.
The tilt of the Earth, the rate it spins on its axis, the strength of its protective magnetic field, the size, speed and shape of its orbit around the sun — this and so much more is in such a precise balance to allow for life. Chance simply does not explain just how precious of a Blessing this world is.
More fraud by the evildoers.
Natural selection is a machine that makes almost impossible things. Consider a typical protein such as whale myoglobin. That molecule is but one of a hundred thousand or so proteins in the animals body and contains a hundred and fifty-three units called amino acids. These come in about twenty forms. The number of possible combinations of amino acids in a structure the size of myoglobin is hence twenty raised to the power of a hundred and fifty three. The figure, ten with about two hundred zeros after it, is beyond imagination and is far more than all the proteins in all the whales, all the animals and all the plants that have ever lived. Such a molecule could never arise by accident. Instead, a rather ordinary device, natural selection, has carved out not just myoglobin but millions of other proteins and the organisms they build.
