    I think you should allow bricklayer to speak for himself. In your case though, it seems that your main point here, if I'm reading your post correctly, is that Evolution,...

    How so? Chill dude, that wasn't an attack. And I guess I'll ask the same question of you; If your "argument" only consists of calling some particular idea ridiculous, how is...

    I ask again, what is your main point here? Are you attempting to prove evolution doesn't exist? Is supplying proof that God created life your goal? Or is it something else?...

    You're asking me if I think bricks evolved into living beings by chance???.... Again, you seem to be making some statement on the initial origins of life, or as another poster...

    Except there are not 10 to the 77th "possible" combinations. As a chem engineer you well know that atoms do not naturally combine into molecules, and molecules into more...

    And yet eyes exist in numerous varieties! The very varieties of eyes that exist in the animal kingdom suggests chance rather than "direction."

    Yes, the SELECTION is not by chance. But, the genetic mutations that give us better apples, better wheat, etc., etc. absolutely are chance. There are lots of other...

    Selecion is an critical PART of evolution. This includes NO "knowledge aforthought". Mutations that are crippling (or otherwise not advantageous) are selected against, as...

    No, the mutations involved absolutely DID happen by chance. These are examples of actual genetic change, where humans selected the results they like and discarded the...

    Then I suggest publishing your paper and claiming your Nobel prize. Disproving then entire field of biology would certainly be a big deal.

    OK, to be more clear here - Evolution doesn't itself have some final goal. It merely selects what is "best" along the way. That is usually guided by ability to grow as a...

    How did mankind create modern day wheat, or apples, or every other food crop? What crop engineering has done for many, many centuries is to continually select the "best" plant...

    No, I don't. It sounds like you think someone is a liar. But, you don't identify a lie or who might have told it. Progress by scientific method is very well documented, as...

    Are you familiar with The Eyeless Huntsman? And if so, can you explain exactly why it does not have eyes despite both its ancestors as well as all of its known living relatives...

    Are those bricks able to reproduce? Are they subject to natural selection? If not, then they aren't a suitable analogue to DNA/other biological components. BTW, you really...

    Why? Again, they don't have to all be beneficial. But the non-beneficial/harmful ones will be weeded out over time. Agreed? You're not making any arguments here. It seems to...

    A mutation may be positive or beneficial, or it might not. Beneficial mutations don't happen all at once, but peridically. The non-beneficial ones do not persist because the...
