We know that anything that goes by random chance has a high probability of failure. Time and random chance cannot produce anything. All the primordial soup of amino acids and other chemicals over millions upon millions of years could not produce anything close to a living organism. If this was so how did the eye form? Where did the living DNA and RNA come from?
First of all, scientists did experiments with amino acids to try to form a living organism with no avail. G.R. Taylor says “that protein DNA, and enzymes, all of which are very complicated would all be required as soon as a new creature was made from evolution. The fundamental objection to all these evolutionary theories is that they involve raising one-self by one’s own bootstraps. You cannot make proteins without DNA, and you cannot make DNA without enzymes, which are proteins. It is a chicken or egg situation, that a suitable enzyme should have cropped up by chance, even in a long period, is implausible, considering the complexity of such molecules.” (G.R. Taylor, Great Evolution Mystery, (1983), p. 201).
Would it be easier for DNA to be made by randomness or by researchers in a laboratory? Could living DNA be made in either place?
There are 20 essential amino acids, 300 special-sequence amino acids in each medium-sized protein, and billions of possible sequences. What do you think would happen in your body if just one of those sequences was out of place? Can “non-random patterns” be produced randomly? Codes are made by intelligent people. Can accurate ones be produced by chance? Random production of amino acids always produces a 50-50 mixture of left and right-hand forms of them. Could the randomness of evolution produce living tissue with only left-hand amino acids?
Men presume a lot when they declare that evolution occurred. Not only new species would have had to invent themselves, but also the organs within those different species. We need to think for a moment what is truly involved in the eye. This is a very remarkable structure. Yet evolution teaches that the eye slowly developed over millions of years and that this miracle of random production of a complete eye occurred at least three times. In the squid, in arthropods (insects), and then in vertebrates (animals with backbones).
Charles Darwin had a difficult time trying to figure out his theory, and frequently admitted in his book, The Origin of Species (short title), that it appeared impossible. “He said that just to think about the eye and how it could possibly have been produced by natural selection was enough to make him ill.” He also said this, “To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” (Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species (1909 Harvard Classic edition), p.190.
The Bible plainly and clearly tells us who created the eye. “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.” (Proverbs 20:12) Amen!
