More Evidence For Intelligent Design: Basic Reproduction is Irreducibly Complex
The origin of life is an issue for all non-design scenarios for the simple reason that living organisms exhibit irreducible complexity throughout, starting with basic reproduction. You just cannot get to a living organism from the alleged RNA World.
Peering into Darwin's Black Box: The cell division processes required for bacterial life:
AbstractThe smallest living building block of life, the cell, is enormously complex, and a great number of its mechanisms are irreducibly complex. Few theories have been proposed explaining how irreducibly complex mechanisms could have evolved by Darwinian natural selection. It could be argued that given enough time a simple reproducing population of living “protocells” could have provided a format for the evolution of complex mechanisms. However, even in “simple” bacteria, the most basic cell functions display irreducibly complex mechanisms—for instance, cell division. This article considers the origin of an irreducibly complex cell division apparatus and contrasts protocell theory with intelligent design theory.
Mother nature would have an easier time crating Stonehenge than she would creating life, and we all know that she could never produce Stonehenge...
