How the Robotic Revolution is Exposing the Inherent Flaws of Evolution

by Gary DeMar

Facts are stubborn things. Those of us who are critical of the claim that nothing become something, and that something somehow organized itself into living organisms, and then gradually evolved over millions of years into what you and I see in the mirror each morning have always known that such a hypothesis is riddled with holes.

Biochemist Michael Behe’s book Darwin’s Black Box defended the premise “that some biochemical structures are too complex to be explained by known evolutionary mechanisms and are therefore probably the result of intelligent design.”

Behe’s book and the Intelligent Design (ID) movement was viciously attacked but never refuted. Anyway, why should we trust evolved brains? C.S. Lewis explained it like this:

“A strict materialism refutes itself for the reason given long ago by Professor Haldane: ‘If my mental processes are determined wholly by the motions of atoms in my brain, I have no reason to suppose that my beliefs are true . . . and hence I have no reason for supposing my brain to be composed of atoms. If minds are wholly dependent on brains, and brains on bio-chemistry, and bio-chemistry (in the long run) on the meaningless flux of atoms, I cannot understand how the thought of those minds should have any significance than the sound of the wind in the trees. Christian theology can fit in science, art, morality, and the sub-Christian religions. . . . The scientific point of view cannot fit in any of these things, not even science itself.’”1

There was a scientific paper published in the PLOS ONE journal that has gotten evolutionists even more upset than the ID movement. Instead of ID’s undefined “intelligence” being behind the function of cell structure and operation, the paper posits a Creator:

“A recent scientific paper on the movement of the human hand has faced strong criticism for referring to a ‘Creator’ throughout.

“The paper, titled: ‘Biomechanical characteristics of hand coordination in grasping activities of daily living’ was written by a team of four researchers, three from Huazhong University in China, and one from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.”

Evolutionists are apoplectic over the claims of a Creator in the article. They want the article suppressed. Because of all the pressure, the article was retracted. This is so-called science at work even though history shows that some of the world’s finest scientists were Christians and attributed the coherence and rationality of the cosmos to the belief in a Creator. Our own Declaration of Independence states that our rights are an endowment from the Creator. Even so, mention of a Creator has been declared unconstitutional even though the Constitution acknowledges the Declaration in words just above George Washington’s signature…
