 TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE—MOM

Sixteen-year-old Johnny came down from his bedroom and stumbled into the kitchen to get a bowl of his favorite cereal—Alpha-Bits. When he got to the table, he was surprised to see that the cereal box was knocked over, and the Alpha-Bit letters spelled “TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE—MOM” on the placemat. Recalling a recent high school biology lesson, Johnny didn’t attribute the message to his mom. After all, he’d just been taught that life itself is merely a product of mindless, natural laws. If that’s the case, Johnny thought, why couldn’t a simple message like “Take out the garbage—Mom” be the product of mindless natural laws as well? Maybe the cat knocked the box over, or an earthquake shook the house. No sense jumping to conclusions. Johnny didn’t want to take out the garbage anyway. He didn’t have time for house chores. This was summer vacation, and he wanted to get to the beach. Mary would he there. Since Mary was the girl Scott liked too, Johnny wanted to get to the beach early to heat Scott there. But when Johnny arrived, he saw Mary and Scott walking hand-in-hand along the shore. As he followed them at a distance, he looked down and saw a heart drawn in the sand with the words “Mary loves Scott” scrawled inside. For a moment, Johnny felt his heart sink. But thoughts of his biology class rescued him from deep despair. “Maybe this is just another case of natural laws at work!” he thought. “Perhaps sand crabs or an unusual wave pattern just hap­pened to produce this love note naturally.” No sense accepting a con­clusion he didn’t like! Johnny would just have to ignore the corroborating evidence of the hand-holding. Comforted by the fact that principles learned in his biology class could help him avoid conclusions he didn’t like, Johnny decided to lie down for a few minutes to get a little sun. As he put his head back on his towel he noticed a message in the clouds: “Drink Coke,” the white puffy letters revealed on the sky-blue background. “Unusual cloud for­mation?” Johnny thought. “Swirling winds, perhaps?” No, Johnny couldn’t play the game of denial any longer. “Drink Coke” was the real thing. A message like that was a sure sign of intelli­gence It couldn’t be the result of natural forces because natural forces have never been observed to create messages. Even though he never saw a plane, Johnny knew there must have been a skywriter up there recently. Besides, he wanted to believe this message—the hot sun had left him parched, thirsting for a Coke.

One needs to be playing with only half a deck or be willfully blind to suggest that messages like “Take out the garbage—Mom” and “Mary loves Scott” are the work of natural laws. Yet these conclusions are perfectly consistent with principles taught in most high school and col­lege biology classes today. That’s where naturalistic biologists dog­matically assert that messages far more complicated are the mindless products of natural laws. They make this claim in trying to explain the origin of life. Naturalistic biologists assert that life generated spontaneously from nonliving chemicals by natural laws without any intelligent inter­vention. Such a theory might have seemed plausible to a nineteenth-century scientist who didn’t have the technology to investigate the cell and discover it’s amazing complexity. But today this naturalistic theory flies in the face of everything we know about natural laws and biolog­ical systems.  

The supreme problem for Darwinists is not that man came from apes or birds evolving from reptiles; it’s the origin of first life. For naturalistic macroevolution to be true the first life must have generated from nonliving chemicals, since 1950 DNA has provided more information concerning life in general. There is enough information in an ameba’s DNA helix a single cell organism to fill over 1000 encyclopedias no one can explain the presence of that information.

Where did the precise DNA sequence come from that told the single cell ameba it’s supposed to be an ameba? This is called specified complexity. 

Now, we must emphasize that these 1000 encyclopedias do not consist of random letters but of letters in a very specific order —just like reading real encyclopedias . So here’s the key question for Darwinists simple messages such as “Take out the garbage Mom,” “Mary loves Scott,” and “Drink Coke” require an intelligent being, then why doesn’t a message 1000 encyclopedias require one?
