It's this simple: Evolution is impossible. The concept of nature creating
complexity is an absurdity. Why can't scientists get nature to create life?
Because nature doesn't create complexity. Why can't scientists get fruit
flies to be anything more than screwed up mutants? Because nature doesn't
create complexity. Why can't someone write a computer program that creates
complexity? Because, apart from intelligence, only nature is left and
nature can't create complexity.

The Evolutionist, when not playing games about the meaning of "evolution,"
"complexity," or some other word, points to snowflakes, Miller's amino
acids, whatever. But, even a fool can see that nature isn't really creating
complexity. These are just conditions of equilibrium, and the same forces
that cause these things would also destroy any imposed complexity. Or,
they'll equate a fortuitous mutation with an increase in complexity. But,
again, even a fool can understand that something doesn't have to be more
complex to be helpful.

Don't forget the NT passage about some people being willingly ignorant about
the Flood.
