1.6% of the North American population looks at the question, “How did the sequence-specific digital information necessary to building the first cell arise?” and replies, “Well, if a million monkeys typing for a billion years can turn out the complete works of Shakespear, then it’s a no brainer:
Inorganic and inanimate gases could evolve a complex formulated, specified code AND
Inorganic and inanimate gases could evolve a separate mechanism for translating that code AND
Inorganic and inanimate gases could have those two mechanisms evolve at the same time (since one is useless without the other) to be present in the first living cell so that the cell is not only allowed to exist but to replicate itself.
It just makes complete sense.”
These people know that without replication there is no natural selection
These people know that without the specified, formulated, coded, information already in place there is no replication.
These people know that it was not natural selection which brought about the evolution of the code and the separate mechanism to translate that code.
These people know that only intelligence is able to bring about a sequence-specific, formulated, code.
These people know these things but they say, “Chance did it!”
These people must maintain this implausible position or their belief system will collapse.
This is what these people are like. This is how they think.
