2.1.6. DNA and Information System
We now know that the DNA molecule is an intricate message system. Many scientists argue that the chemical building blocks of the DNA molecule can be explained by natural evolutionary processes. However, it has been realized that the material base of a message is completely independent of the information transmitted. Thus, the chemical building blocks have nothing to do with the origin of the complex message inherent in the DNA..Hypotheses/theories that pose that random processes can maintain the DNA-code and can make it grow ever further are in conflict with empirical science.The scientific reality of the DNA double helix can single-handedly defeat any theory that assumes life arose from non-life through materialistic forces.According to evolution theory the design of this world is merely apparent just the result of random, natural processes.However, with the discovery, mapping and sequencing of the DNA molecule, it is now understood that organic life is based on vastly complex information code, and such information cannot be created or interpreted just by chance. Also, only chemical factories can change basic substances into complex molecules, as the adjusted Miller experiment demonstrates. Since random processes cannot maintain the order of even the tiniest building block for
life, the further increase of complexity by random processes is no more than a fantasy and wishful thinking. Hypotheses/theories that pose that random processes can maintain the DNA-code and can make it grow ever further are in conflict with empirical science.La Pointe (1995) has summarized some major evidences against the theory of evolution, as follows, :
1.There are no transitional links and intermediate forms in either the fossil record or the modern world. Therefore, there is no actual evidence that evolution has occurred either in the past or the present.
2.Natural selection (the supposed evolution mechanism, along with mutations) is incapable of advancing an organism to a higher-order.
3.Although evolutionists state that life resulted from non-life, matter resulted from nothing, and humans resulted from animals, each of these is an impossibility of science and the natural world.
4.The supposed hominids (creatures in-between ape and human that - evolutionists believe - used to exist) bones and skull used by evolutionists often consists of "finds" which are thoroughly unrevealing and inconsistent.
5.Nine of the twelve popularly supposed hominids are actually extinct apes/ monkeys and not part of human at all.
6.The final three supposed hominids put forth by evolutionists are actually modern human beings and not part of monkey/ape at all. Therefore, all twelve of the supposed hominids can be explained as being fully monkey/ape or fully modern human but not as something in between.
7.Natural selection can be seen to have insurmountable social and practical inconsistencies.
8.Natural selection has severe logical inconsistencies
9.The rock strata finds (layers of buried fossils) are better explained by a universal flood than by evolution.
