Pat Robertson interviews evangelist Ray Comfort about about evolution. Comfort explains how Christians use their common sense to intuit intelligent design.
And I'm sorry, but billions of years is plenty of time given such a selective system."
This is only a supposition. There are no trans phylum evidence of evolution in the paleontological record. I will give you an "ataboy" and a financial gift for every instance of trans phylum evolution found. For without trans phylum evolution the most salient aspect of the postulate would be false.
An engineer does not accept the argument of time since we can speed the combined effect of random mutatiom with selective breeding and try and evolve efficient mechanical systems with minimal redundancies as found in nature. Thesee math models, even for simple systems can not keep up with nature in terms of minimal redundancies and efficencies. Whereas biological systems are near infinitely more complex involving many orders of magnitude more degrees of freedom.
Hi Michael, have you read this yet?
I'll admit it's over my head, but just because we don't have the evidence to satisfy everyone yet doesn't mean we won't, just look how far we have come in the last 100 years. And just because it can't be proven yet, is certainly no argument that it all came about by an invisible spirit in the sky that apparently came from nowhere and has always existed, yet these same people have a problem with the Big Bang, go figure.
@Kris Feenstra One example? How about any species that has ever gone extinct?
No extinctions are examples of species well evolved for their environment but the environment disappears. It's no reflection on design or efficiency of the biological system
