    Quote from your article:

    "We know intuitively that Darwinism can accomplish some things, but not others. The question is what is that boundary? Does the information content in living things exceed that boundary? Darwinists have never faced those questions. They've never asked scientifically, can random mutation and natural selection generate the information content in living things."


    -----------------------------

    Didn't Darwin die in 1882? I wonder what we've learned since then?

    Intuitively?

    intuitive:
    instinctive, spontaneous, innate, involuntary, instinctual, untaught, unreflecting

    Untaught and unreflecting being the operative words.

    Science has to be more than, "Just a feeling".

    all this shows is event he most intelligent people can get wrapped up in wishful thinking and delude themselves into throwing out their logical thinking to believe. Not very good scientists if they throw away their logic and reasoning that makes a good scientist, or conveniently ignore the same scientific method they use in their careers when its inconvenient to their beliefs

    Actually, the passage rdean highlighted is a wonderful dissent.

    Are there any experiments in the process that highlight "random" mutations(exactly what is a random mutation? The logic sounds very familiar, hmmm. ) in cells or biological models in which natural selection is a recordable variable?

    Of course, experiments that show mutations of organisms that were directed by evironmental conditions do exists. Which may suggest that Darwins original idea need to be expanded since it incorporates more than just "natural selection" or "random cell mutations" in which the latter I am having trouble fully understanding.

    What is meant by "Random"? Darwinism screams determinism, not randomness, so what really gives here?

    Evolution has NEVER been proven to have created a whole new species from an old one. With in a species we can clearly see changes occurring but no one has EVER provide a direct link to an ANIMAL changing from one form to a completely different one.
