Hello Kevin,

Bill: I probably missed something since I really haven't followed this thread,
but could you please clarify the above. I thought that if only
naturalistic explanations were allowed for the transition from the big
bang to what we see today, that an increase in complexity would be part
and parcel of that model. You seem to indicate otherwise. How come?

Kevin's statement that evolution does not demand an increase in complexity is imho correct. That we tend to see what we believe an increase in complexity is not a requirement of evolution as much as a by-product.
