Have you had a song that you cannot get out of your mind?
Sorry, I can’t relate as this never happens to me. The only song title that I can remember is “Amazing Grace!” What I do remember are certain theological, philosophical, or scientific phrases.
“Irreducible complexity” is one of those phrases.
Those who approach “irreducible complexity” without bias must abandon evolution as a theory for the origin of life. Yep, this is a blanket accusation of those claiming to be scientists, who state no evidence for God and that “evolution” explains why you exist and why you think and why you love chocolate – that they come to these conclusions through bias.
The Bible uses the word “fool.” Psalm 14:1 says, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.”
The Apostle Paul echoes:
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power, and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:20-21 NASB95
Considering evolution or atheism, I don’t think “foolish,” I think “irreducible complexity.” I can’t get it out of my mind. I first encountered the term in a book authored by Michael Behe entitled Darwin’s Black Box.
Behe’s book explains that molecular biology was an infantile science in the time of Darwin. The common thinking in the time of Charles Darwin’s natural selection assumed that living creatures grew from simple to complex.
Hmmmhhhhhmmm… simple to complex!
Small particles become molecules become increasingly complex organisms. What science has demonstrated in the years since Darwin, is that life at the cellular level is as complex, or even more complex, than the more visible and supposedly more advanced forms of life.
Books are now written about the fact that the person driving a pick-up truck that pulls out in front of you only to slow down, probably is less advanced than the cells of his or her brain – but then again, you already knew this by the driving.
It’s called “irreducible complexity.”
Darwin’s problem was that he started in the middle – he took what he could barely see from his rudimentary microscope, and assumed the cell as the starting point from which everything naturally selected itself into more complex basketball and boating enthusiasts.
While Darwin’s Theory of Evolution might explain Mixed Martial Arts fighters, it doesn’t explain your ability to get mad at Interruptions.
Science has since shown that Darwin’s starting-point cell is the middle, with complexity working backward to ever-smaller particles and forward to ever-larger The Ohio State University football players.
The cell moves backward to complexity, and forward to very large fullbacks.
Going smaller, you find little machines working in your cells that do all sorts of complex jobs. The machines are irreducibly complex in the sense that any machine needs several parts to exist, be placed together, and function simultaneously.
The machine only works with all the parts. It is irreducibly complex.
Question: how can one cell become two cells, become an amoeba with the destination of explaining your brain, with the millions of parts existing in the cells needing to be designed, made, and assembled at the same time, and be explained by the Theory of Evolution that assumes simple to complex?
(I just checked. The previous sentence is a question and the longest question/sentence in the history 0f 322 Interruptions.)
Irreducible complexity disproves evolution. Bias that cancels science is the only explanation for serious thinkers who believe life exists without intelligent design.
We live in a cancel-science world today.
The next time someone mentions “evolution” think “irreducible complexity!” Irreducible complexity… irreducible complexity… irreducible complexity… irreducible complexity.
Not as easy to remember as “Amazing Grace,” but science is an example of God’s grace.
