Creation is not merely our best science. It is our only science.
I have finished reading the main part of The Biotic Message by Walter ReMine. Wow! I would implore all who are interested in origins to read it, or at the very least the appendix 'Survival of the Fittest'. The book's destruction of evolution as science is thorough. The author gets deep into evolutionary thought and shows what it really stands on: naturalism, tautology, special definition, metaphysics and lameness(fails to explain). Where he talks about Punctuated Equilibria and human embryonic gill slits he doesn't just show that they have zero evidence to support them he shows precisely why evolutionists need them to prop up their theory.
I especially like where ReMine takes statements from evolutionists where they are trying to present survival of the fittest and natural selection as scientific concepts. He asks the reader to replace those terms in the evolutionists statements with the word 'astrology' to see how the same logic could be used to defend it as scientific.
Before I read the book I had seen some one describe it as the book evolutionists don't want you to read and now I see why that would be the case. ReMine used to study magic; the art of illusion and how to see through illusion. He applies these skills to evolution and exposes the magicians tricks.
I have not had the time so far to look properly for arguments against ReMine's book, which I hope to do soon. The little I have seen just attacks him personally.
The quote above is near the end of book's conclusion. This is the first time in the book where I felt ReMine had gone too far with his reasoning. But the more I thought about it the more it made sense to me. ReMine shows that what we observe in life must have been set up to deliberately thwart all evolutionary explanations (he refers to evolutionists having to constantly retreat as new data becomes known to us). The way life is requires a designer, a designer who not only made life to function but also look like the product of design. If life existed because of natural laws it would look very different, ReMine's arguments for this are extremely compelling. I can just imagine the thoughts of this designer when designing the butterfly; "Lets see them try to explain this without a designer".
The idea that a being exists that is capable of creating what we see in life is both terrifying and wondrous. This being's mind is unfathomable to us and I think this is one of the reasons people accept evolution; humans tend to fear the unknown. It is a human trait to believe things simply because we want them to be true, we are all guilty of this. The fact that humans possess the ability to understand the concept of morality (the greatest of humanities abilities imho) suggests that maybe the designer thought the concept important to, now that is really terrifying.
