THE FORMULA FOR EVOLUTIONARY STORYTELLING

Natural Selection + Homology – Designer = Macro Evolution (Exclude mutation from this formula) Generally macro evolutionary stories have the following elements. Natural selection is used to represent the full process of evolution, homology helps create the evolutionary sequence, and then the idea that a designer wouldn’t create the feature being examined is used to give credence to natural selection and homology. Meanwhile, mutation is usually left out of the story because it falsifies, contradicts or complicates the storyline. HOMOLOGY

COMPLEXITY AND SPECIFIED COMPLEXITY

Specified complexity exists in only two places, life and things designed by life. This fact is supported by many observations and experiments that started centuries ago and continue in top science labs today. Complexity is a relative term. Technically, by definition something becomes complex as soon as it has more than two parts. But complexity for us is based on two things, the amount of data there is to consider and also our familiarity with what we are considering. The

THE TRUE ROLE OF NATURAL SELECTION AND VARIATION

As evolutionists often see it, natural selection is the primary force behind evolution. It has great creative powers, the ability to test, experiment, augment and modify. Its decisions are genius, brilliant and powerful. This makes natural selection one of the most abused concepts in evolutionary thinking. Take a look at just a few examples of how it is treated from evolutionary sources. “But if humans can make new varieties of plants and animals, must not nature do so also… If
