quote: "this sh*t is complex, therefore it must be designed"
quote: Evolution + Big Bang + Quantum Physics + Relativity are Scientific Theories that can be proven, observed, and used to predict future outcomes .
quote: Simple question that can not be explained chemically is what formed first, the cell membrane or the components of a cell nucleus?
quote: Also after single cell organisms formed, what caused them to form into multicell organisms?
quote: If a mat of single cells formed into the first multicell organism what made some cells form into skin, others form into livers cells, or nerve cells, or blood cells, ect?
quote: The article talks about the encoding that makes life into life, but where did the encoding of information come from?
quote: So many people think we now know 99% of the truth of how the universe works and was formed, I believe it is more like we know and understand about 1% of the truth of how the universe works and was formed.
quote: The need to differentiate cells came much later.
quote: Cell membrane obviously. You know about eukariotes and prokariotes right? Prokariote does not have nucleus. Bacteria and archea are prokariotes.
quote: Previous generations.
quote: What caused organisms to differentiate cells into the types needed?
quote: Did the first organism to have a bone begin with having just a single mutated bone cell that somehow didn't cause it to die and things just went from there? If it went from there, how did it come about to have multiple bones with joints instead of just one long bone?
quote: So there are organisms which only have a cell membrane with nothing inside that makes it alive? Sorry I am a chemist not a biologist, I just know that from a chemical standpoint that the structures of that complexity do not happen easily if at all.
quote: What gave encoding into the original generation?
quote: Previous generations.

quote: Evolution + Big Bang + Quantum Physics + Relativity are Scientific Theories that can be proven, observed, and used to predict future outcomes.Intelligent Design is a Belief. It explains nothing. It predicts nothing. It can't be proven. It can't even be observed (complexity exists but its existence means nothing by itself!). It has no mathematical laws or principles. It is simply not science.By comparison, we know for a fact that Evolution occurred. You can walk into any natural history museum and touch fossils. We can even see it occur in real time.As Stephen Hawking said, and was immediately damned for, the Universe does not need God. It's a self regulating, self sustaining bubble of space and energy. Anything beyond our Universe is meaningless because we could never observe it.
quote: So for what it's worth, our universe could have been pre-programmed, however if programmer is sitting outside the universe we'll never be able to meet him so it makes absolutely no sense to waste time contemplating what's beyond the edge - let's focus on stuff inside first.
quote: Science completely allows for the concept that there are simply things that just "are". Like perhaps the fundamental particles that allow for the creation of matter simply always just "have been".
quote: ...elementary particles would be considered foundational. It's "faith based" thinking to say "but there's GOTTA be SOMETHING smaller!"
quote: ...I think it's not crazy to think the whole evolution was pre-programmed to happen... Maybe the Big Bang created the universe...
quote: I feel; given what we know about the number of planets that orbit distant stars its arrogant for us to think all life originated here on earth.
quote: A more likely scenario i think is that Panspermia brought life here and that it is as old as the universe.
quote: The bible proclaims the earth to be millions of years old.
quote: Hey don't forget to be eternally thankful for Noah and his Ark(aka the Tardis).. quite a trick to squeeze in all 8.5million or so species :P
quote: If evolution works then he would not have needed to place all 8.5 million species into the ark, they could have simply evolved later from what he did put on there.
quote: If you subtract the species of microorganisms, aquatic organisms and anything else that could survive a flood, then how many are left over to need to be protected on the ark?
quote: everything else could easily survive on floating debris or by swimming.
quote: We know that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, a scientific fact.
quote: Now this fact, includes un-avoidable losses, things like friction, heat/energy loss.
quote: When a first body exerts a force F1 on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force F2 = -F1 on the first body. This means that F1 and F2 are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.
quote: Everything in the existence operates at a loss, and this is what science describes in the Laws of Thermodynamics.
quote: These principles also apply directly to systems of information, complexity, language, data, etc...
quote: Take a book for example and its contents, a very basic paper and ink, a one dimensional data storage device. A book cannot write itself and cannot come into being by chance or by any random means. It would be un-scientific to say it could because that would violate the laws of thermodynamics.
quote: The SETI project is another example, searching space for signs of intelligence by looking for radiation signals that contain information or intelligent data. The entire premise of the project rests on the correct assumption; that random background radiation cannot and will not produce radiation signals which contain information.
quote: Ironically evolutionists claim the exact opposite that random chaos can create life, and literally move from a state of low energy to high energy (or complexity).
quote: If we attempt to calculate the probability of an average-sized protein consisting of 400 amino acids being selected only from left-handed amino acids, we come up with a probability of 1 in 2^400, or 10^120. Just for a comparison, the number of electrons in the universe is estimated at 10^79, which although vast, is a much smaller number.
quote: Even the infamous 'Lucy' is know if be made up of over a dozen different animals.
quote: Evolution simply did not happen because there is no scientific way for it to happen.
quote: and it's still happening.

Just for a comparison, the number of electrons in the universe is estimated at 10^79, which although vast, is a much smaller number. 1 divided by a number so vast, is effectively ZERO. And that's just for 1 single protein not thousands and ignoring all the other complex devices that are needed as well.
