The 1.6% Solution
1.6% of the North American population says that natural selection cannot favour the evolution of a nonfunctional system. Yet if the system obviously existed prior to being functional as that system, it must have functioned as something different. This 1.6% of the population cannot seem to grasp that a complex living organism cannot randomly substitute one function for another and still survive. Nevertheless, even though these people say that without observation and verification nothing can be believed this portion of the population maintains this implausible position, not because of the evidence but in spite of the evidence. They must do this or their world view will collapse.
