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?

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:18-20).
