Genetic Relativity - Part ll
"The Door Hinge That Disproves Darwin"
There is a huge emphasis in the naturalism (including evolution) vs. creationism debate, over whether "new information" could arise via undirected processes...
But it is my thought that an exponentially greater problem for Darwinian evolution exists; one that involves what kind of new information mindless processes would have to create, if molecules to man evolution were true.
I'll start out with an example to illustrate the point:
In order for the human jaw to work, such that we're able to chew, talk, and so forth, multiple biological parts must function in harmony together - starting with the maxilla, and mandible, which are the upper and lower jaw bones, respectively.
Random mutations are said to provide the "raw materials" for these various parts, via chance alterations in our genetic code. But how could a mindless process cause such specialized parts that come together in perfect alignment, such that they are able to work within a system?
Consider that even if evolutionary mechanisms actually worked as claimed, random changes in genetic information could lead to an infinite number of potential biological parts!
...There is absolutely no mechanism in Darwinian evolution which would dictate that random mutations "must" lead to the formation of an upper jaw bone, let alone one which aligns properly with the lower jaw. The bottom (or top) jaw could have literally been any biological part, based on any of an infinite number of possible changes to existing genetic information. Mutations could have ended up coding for skin, or hair, or teeth, or organs, or any of endless possibilities - instead of bone! Even the shape alone (of either the top or bottom jaw) could have been any of trillions upon trillions of different shapes!
The Problem Multiplied...
Thus far, we've only considered a mere two different jaw bones which "just happen" to be in alignment with eachother such that they function. But of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg as we observe that muscles "just happen" to attach to the bones in a necessary way; nerves and brain functionality "just happen" to control the jaw muscles; so on and so forth (and not just in humans but in many thousands of different creatures). I would encourage you to briefly read about the temporomandibular joint (i.e., the "jaw joint"), as you consider that each and every part mentioned could have been any of an infinite number of various biological parts. And still, this only touches the surface...
The human body is made up of thousands of parts that must be: A specific material, in a specific position, of a specific size and shape, with a specific function, etc., in order that the various systems of the body are able to work in harmony together. If the parts aren't formed to exacting specifications, things simply don't work - and therefore a selectable benefit doesn't exist (meaning natural selection isn't a factor). ...Imagine trying to chew with a bottom jaw bone that's twice the normal size, or with a jaw "bone" made out of soft tissue! Each of our biological parts requires precise genetic information in order to take form within our bodies as we grow and develop from the moment of conception.
Now, being that there are infinite possible outcomes in the case of each and every one of the working parts that make up our bodies, the odds of random processes "creating" each precise part in a strictly finite amount of time, are simply unthinkable...
Imagine opening up a word processor (like Microsoft Word) with a blindfold on and your computer keyboard turned upside down, faced with the task of pecking out the instructions by which a simple door hinge could be fabricated in a machine shop...
For starters, the resulting "information" that you come up with would be gibberish, perhaps with the exception of a few lucky words that make no sense in relation to one another. But let's just go ahead and imagine that you're somehow able to come up with readable information. Even then, what are the odds that you'd end up with instructions for hinge parts that actually work together (in much the same way that jaw bones, knee joints, the parts of a cell, the parts of the cardiovascular system, and many other vastly more complex biological systems, work together)?
Given infinite possible outcomes, it simply wouldn't make mathematical sense to expect that you'd ever come up with information remotely resembling the specs for even one hinge part, let alone the specs for multiple hinge parts that actually work together! Even if you managed the impossible by coming up with one side of a hinge (rather than a hula hoop, or endless other random objects that could be named), that's the "easy" part... You'd still have to come up with the other side (and other parts) of the hinge which actually fit with, and work with, the first side!
It's plain to see that mindless processes cannot produce specific information required to build specialized parts that function together in a system. And yet, this is precisely the kind of new information that Darwinian mechanisms would have to produce if evolution were true...and not the obvious myth that it is.
