Darwinists allege that the idea of Intelligent Design (I.D.) is not worthy even of being called a theory - much less science. The accusation that the belief in a designer is mere religious faith is rather hypocritical, since many of Darwin's postulations were based on his own best inferences based on historical data available in his day - a day when no one knew what a cell was. Evolutionists' beliefs are all based on faith - faith that God does not exist.
Since evolutionists cannot demonstrate any of the biochemical events and adaptations they claim brought about life and living creatures, they rely on speculation - "The first cell could have emerged from the pre-biotic primordial soup." "The process of natural selection may have allowed monkeys to evolve into humans."
Truth is - no one alive today can state precisely how our universe started or how the first living cell found its way onto our planet. Darwinian scientists and philosophers insist that if it cannot be demonstrated or tested today, it cannot be considered science. That reasoning undermines much of what Darwin proposed. For this controversy there simply will not be a level playing field.
Today I thought about teeth - individual teeth. I still have most of mine (though some are synthetic). It struck me as interesting that our teeth are many and separate. Why do I not have merely two bony, enamel-clad ridges (one top, one bottom) with which to chew? Then I realized that were that the case, I might risk losing an entire chewing ridge through injury or infection. How wise our Creator was to let us have individual teeth so that if one goes bad, it doesn't jeopardize the rest of the mouth.
My point is - have you ever looked at your teeth? Why do they have such remarkable anatomies? What makes them grow into just the right shape for optimum maceration? Think about that in light of the natural selection model. How many generations of our human forbears had to endure having the wrong shaped teeth before the beneficent natural selection process sifted us to the current perfect arrangement? I don't think humans have been on this planet long enough for all of that adaptation to have occurred.
I just read the book "Signature in the Cell" by Stephen C. Meyer - see
Check it out and marvel for yourself at how impossible it would have been for life to have emerged without a Designer.
