Statement (Isaiah 41:)

The Problem of Complexity
The presence of complexity – interdependent parts that do not function unless other parts are also present – poses another major problem for evolution. For instance, a muscle is useless without a nerve going to the muscle to direct its contracting activity. But both the muscle and the nerve are useless without a complicated control mechanism in the brain to direct the contracting activity of the muscle and correlate its activity with that of other muscles. Without these three essential components, we have only useless parts. In a process of gradual evolutionary changes, how does complexity evolve?

Statement (Isaiah 41:)

The Problem of Complexity
The complexity of the simplest imaginable living organism is mind-boggling. You need to have the cell wall, the energy system, a system of self repair, the reproduction system, and means for taking in “food” and expelling “waste,” a means for interpreting the complex genetic code and replicating it, etc., etc. The combined telecommunication systems of the world are far less complex and yet no one believes they arose by chance.
-Dr. Stephen Grocott

Life Lesson (Isaiah 41:)
