Three Strikes and You’re Out!
In baseball three strikes against you means you are OUT as a batter. You will not get on base. You will never score a run.
Evolution has many strikes against it, but three of the biggest ones are:
- The origin of life from non-living matter – this is a gigantic gap for which evolution has no explanation. All experiments to artificially create life have utterly failed.
- The fossil record, which shows fully formed animals and plants without any signs of intermediate forms. Birds have supposedly evolved from reptiles but there is not a single fossil showing a half-scale/half-feather.
- Irreducible Complexity – this means that all parts of a complex system need to be in place at the same time in order for the system to be functional. What good is a heart without a circulatory system?
