The Improbability of Evolution Life,   and   the   world   which   makes   it   possible,   are   incredibly   complex,   and   the   more   that   is   learned about   either   only   makes   them   seem   more   so.      Indeed,   life   is   so   complex   that   the   brightest   minds   who   have set themselves to the challenge of creating   it artificially   have   been unable to produce the   most   minimalistic forms   of   it.      Yet,   evolutionists   would   have   people   believe   that,   contrary   to   all   the   plain   evidence   of   their eyes   and   minds,   not   only   something   literally   as   “dumb   as   dirt”   created   what   the   most   brilliant   scientists could not create, but that life has continually acted upon itself to create increasingly more complex forms. Thus,   life’s   very   complexity,   for   which   evolution   strains   itself to account, renders evolution   improbable as an explanation for   life as   it exists.      It   is probably   impossible   to   measure   the   improbability of   evolution,   but   that   is   hardly   necessary.      Any   honest   person   who compares   what   he   is   asked   to   believe   about   evolution   with   what he    sees    all    around    him    almost    immediately    and    intuitively questions     its     credibility.          All     others     succumb     to     personal preference   or   peer   pressure.      This   might   be   why   scientists   find   it so   frustrating   that,   after   at   least   150   years,   they   have   not   been   able to   convince   so   many,   perhaps   hundreds   of   millions   of,   otherwise reasonably   intelligent   people   of   the   veracity   of   evolution,   despite subjecting   them   to   a   brain-washing   deluge   of   propaganda   from virtually all media and academic sources. Perhaps   the reason   for   their   failure   is given   by   David   Berlinski, an   agnostic   mathematician   who   holds   a   Ph.D.   from   Princeton   University,   who   said   in   his   book,   The   Devil’s Delusion :        “The    idea   that    human    beings    have    been   endowed   with   powers   and   properties    not   found elsewhere   in the animal   kingdom   or the universe, so far as we can tell   arises from a simple   imperative:     Just   look   around .      It   is   an   imperative   that   survives   the   invitation   fraternally   to   consider   the   great   apes.      The apes are, after all, behind the bars of their cages and we are not.” That   is really about all   it   takes   to   know   that evolution   is   not   true.      Evolutionists   have simply   not   been able to overcome the overwhelming evidence of the senses as   judged   by   nothing   more than common sense.     In   fact,   to   know   that   it   is   God,   and   not   the   world   itself,   who   made   the   world,   the   Bible   simply   tells   people to   use   their   common   sense   to   draw   a   conclusion   from   what   they   see   around   them:      “And   yet   He   did   not leave   Himself   without   witness,   in   that   He   did   good   and   gave   you   rains   from   heaven   and   fruitful   seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness” (Acts 14:17).  In other words, “just look around.” A   few   more   examples   strengthen   this   point.      First,   if   life,   as   evolution   claims,   has   passed   through innumerable   iterations,   each   one   barely   distinguishable   from   the   last,   how   is   it   that   life   exists   in   so   many discrete forms?  Where is the reptile with breasts or the mammal with feathers? Second,   how   does   the   fourth   generation   of   the   monarch   butterfly   which   left   its   home   in   central Mexico   know   how   to   migrate   between   there   and   Canada    using   the   same   route   and   trees   and   to   return   to the same place its forebears used but which it has never seen? What   makes   human   cells,   which   have   precisely   the   same   genome   after   fertilization,   subdivide   and differentiate themselves into hundreds of kinds of cells? Looked at this way, why should evolution as a creator be any more probable than God?
