Was Hitler converted by Darwin, Is Evolution Wrong; same tired old nonsense.

Marshal and I bring you another "Where the Evidence Leads"podcast.

This Month we interview Don Exodus from YouTube, about David Klinghoffer and the article in the  "Huff" Huffington Post, about , of course, Darwin and Hitler and how Hitler was a quire boy until he read Origin of Species. I contend that the Huff is a online rag and Marshal contends that it's not, don't tell him I think he probably is right I rarely ever read it. We go on to discuss another website and more tired old arguments against evolution. marshal boiled down the long list to just a few we discuss them on the show and I will take them apart one at a time in future posts.

1.    Mutations only remove information rather than add information.
2.    Mutations are always negative and would never make the recipient of
said mutation more likely to procreate.
3.    Mutations are too rare to have any real impact upon a species.
4.    Most organs and biological features are far to complex to be the
result of random mutations. (Irreducible complicity).
5.    The Cambrian Explosion itself disproves the notion that life
evolves slowly. In the span of 20 million years we witnessed the
development of most complex life forms; where prior all life as simple
single celled life.
6.    No single mutation could possibly give a species any discernible
7.    Punctuated equilibrium has been demonstrated to be impossible.
8.    DNA or RNA could never randomly come into existence. Life could
never have formed without a designer. (note: not related to evolution a
common tactic)
9.    The second law of thermo dynamics means that life is impossible.
(my note: Obviously not true because were it life would be impossible
on earth whether creationism or evolution were true).
10.    The sun is not enough to overcome entropy. “Raw energy from the
sun, if not for the ability of living things to convert it to useful
energy such as sugars, proteins etc. would be a destroyer of life.  In
many of the scenarios of primitive life the UV radiation is looked as
the driver of the mutations need for evolution, but it conversely
would destroy the organism as well if not protected.  In fact the
mutation rate being very slow and the energy being very fast the
destruction would be very many times faster than the creation. Raw
energy from the sun, cannot create the specified complexity needed for
life.  It can only cause complexity to be lost in mutations.  In the
labs scientists use sophisticated equipment to polymerize proteins in
the right way.  If sunlight were to enter this process it would
destroy the proteins.” ( from (note: sounds
like his conclusions are mere assertions to me).
11.    The Big Bang is false. (note: not related to evolution).
12.    “The fossil record does not show an increasing complexity.
Evolutionist Dan McShea of the University of Michigan had approached
this question in a detailed study of the backbones of creatures that
evolutionists believe represent ancestor – descendant pairs. He wanted
to see if the ‘descendant’ was more complex than the ‘ancestor’ on the
average for each case.  What he found was no trend at all.  Other
scientists studied the shells of ammonoids, a spiral shelled creature,
to see if apparently related types got more complex higher in the rock
strata and found there was absolutely no trend.  Creationists would
expect this result of these studies.  McShea said: “Everybody knows
that organisms get more complex as they evolve.  The only trouble with
what everyone knows is that there is no evidence it’s true”
( (note: this argument contradicts the claims
about the Cambrian Explosion about the rate at which life simple to
13.    Where are the transitional fossils?
14.    The theories regaurding Bird evolution are fabrications.
•    Archaeopteryx, which has been shown as a fully formed bird has been
dated as evolving before many of the dinosaurs with allegedly
primitive feathers.
•    The Archaeoraptor hoax from China in 1999 caused a cloud of “faked
fossil’ that hangs over everything coming out of China. (note: a
single incident of fraud completely discredits all subsequent claims?
Wonder if he would apply this same standard to Christianity?)
•    Scale cells could never have evolved into feather cells.
