HIGGS BOSON, THE "GOD PARTICLE": What about the "God particle" or the Higgs boson? "The Higgs mechanism does not miraculously create mass out of "nothing." Rather, the mass is transferred to the particle from the Higgs field, which contained this mass in the form of energy.4, 5 Thus, the Higgs mechanism does not account for the origin of mass in the ultimate sense" (Dr. Jake Hebert and Dr. Jason Lisle, "Have Scientists Found the 'God' Particle?").
CREATIONISTS RIGHT ABOUT ENTROPY (Internet Article): Just google the title to access this Internet article. Entropy occurs in both open and closed systems. In every transfer of energy some of the energy becomes irreversibly useless. Given enough time, all the energy in the universe will become totally useless and the universe will be incapable of any activity. The fact that the universe hasn't reached this state shows that the universe is not eternal. The natural tendency of matter is to break-down and go towards greater disorder rather than evolve towards greater order and complexity. Unless there is an already existing code and energy-converting mechanisms, substantial order cannot develop. A seed can develop into a tree because there's a genetic code in the seed to direct its development into a tree. Even in an open system (with abundant useful energy available), there has to be an already existing energy-converting, directing mechanism to develop substantial order. Spontaneous order from chaos is not possible, not to any substantial degree. It requires an already existing DNA code to bring into existence another DNA code. How, then, did DNA originate when there was no DNA in nature? The answer is an intelligent Power outside of nature was the original source and origin of DNA and life.
EINSTEIN CONFIRMED that space and time are just as physical as matter. That's why space and time can be altered by gravity, and space produces particles. So, although space cannot be felt, space actually is something not nothing! Space can be stretched and manipulated. Einstein's equations show that the universe couldn’t be eternal. It had a beginning. Einstein believed, because of science, in the existence of God behind the origin and order of the universe. He didn't believe in a personal God like Christians do, but he did believe science pointed to the existence of an all powerful and intelligent Creator.
EXPLAINING HOW AN AIRPLANE WORKS doesn't mean no one made the airplane. Explaining how life or the universe works doesn't mean there was no Maker behind them. Natural laws may explain how the order in the universe works and operates, but mere undirected natural laws cannot explain the origin of that order. Once you have a complete and living cell then the genetic code and biological machinery exist to direct the formation of more cells, but how could life or the cell have naturally originated when no directing code and mechanisms existed in nature? Read my Internet article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM.
WHAT IS SCIENCE? Science simply is knowledge based on observation. No one observed the universe coming by chance or by design, by creation or by evolution. These are positions of faith. The issue is which faith the scientific evidence best supports. Natural laws can explain how an airplane or living cell works, but it's irrational to believe that mere undirected natural laws can bring about an airplane or a cell. Once you have a complete and living cell then the genetic program and biological machinery exist to direct the formation of more cells, but how could the cell have originated naturally when no directing code and mechanisms existed in nature? All of the founders of modern science believed in God. Read my Internet article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM
BIG BANG FLAWS: Big Bang scientists extrapolate a hypothetical scenario from a few facts. Yes, some galaxies are expanding, moving further away, but this is not the case with the entire universe. There are galaxies in the universe running perpendicular to the rest of the galaxies. That's contrary to Big Bang. If Big Bang really occurred, there should be a uniform distribution of gasses. This uniform distribution of the gasses would have made sure that the gasses would not have coalesced, due to gravitational attraction, into planets and stars. The hypothesis of dark matter providing enough gravitational force has been recently discredited. “The (galactic) structures discovered during the past few years, however, are so massive that even if CDM (Cold Dark Matter) did exist, it could not account for their formation” (Dr. Duane T. Gish, “The Big Bang Theory Collapses”). Furthermore, an explosion cannot explain the precise orbits and courses of thousands of billions of stars in thousands of billions of galaxies.

HOW DO EGG YOLKS BECOME CHICKENS? (Internet Article) When you divide a cake, the parts are smaller than the original cake and the cake never gets bigger. When we were a single cell and that cell divided, the new cells were the same size as the original and we got bigger. New material had to come from somewhere. That new material came from food. The sequence of molecules in our DNA directed the molecules from our mother's food, we received in the womb, to become new cells forming all the tissues and organs of our body. When you understand how your DNA works, you'll also understand how egg yolks can become chickens.. Read my popular Internet article: HOW DO EGG YOLKS BECOME CHICKENS?

This article will give you a good understanding of how DNA works, as well as cloning and genetic engineering.
MICRO-EVOLUTION VS. MACRO-EVOLUTION: Micro-evolution (variations within a biological kind such as varieties of dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc.) simply is the expression, over time, of already existing genes. The genes already exist in all species for micro-evolution to occur, but not for macro-evolution (variations across biological kinds). We have breeds or races of dogs today that we didn't have a few hundred years ago. The genes were always there in the dog population but didn't have opportunity for expression until much later. Micro-evolution does not require evolution of new genes. Macro-evolution, however, would require evolution of entirely new genes which mindless nature cannot design. Nature can only work with already existing genes or variations of already existing genes.
NATURAL LIMITS OF EVOLUTION (Internet Article): Read this article published in Russia's Pravda magazine. Just google the title to access it. Only evolution within biological "kinds" (micro-evolution) is genetically possible (such as varieties of dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc.), but not evolution across biological "kinds" ( or macro-evolution, such as from sea sponge to human). How did species survive if their vital tissues, organs, reproductive systems, etc. were still evolving? Read also my Pravda Internet article: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS! I discuss: Punctuated Equilibria, "Junk DNA," genetics, mutations, natural selection, fossils, genetic and biological similarities between species.
ALL REAL EVOLUTION ( i.e. varieties of dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc.) in nature is the expression, over time, of already existing genes. Evolution is possible only if there’s information (i.e. genes, genetic code) directing it. Only variations of already existing genes are possible, which means only limited evolution and adaptations are possible. Nature is mindless and has no ability to perform genetic engineering or to invent entirely new genes via random genetic mutations caused by random environmental forces like radiation. That’s blind evolutionary faith, not science. Read my Internet article, WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS!
We have breeds or races of dogs today that we didn't have a few hundred years ago. The genes for these new races or breeds were always there in the dog population. They just didn't have opportunity for expression until much later. All species of life carry both expressed and unexpressed genes. When we witness new variations within a natural species, what we're witnessing is the expression of previously existing genes. The genes were always there. The genes themselves didn't evolve, but when previously unexpressed genes have opportunity to express themselves, we witness micro-evolution (evolution within a natural species).
How do we know that the genes were always there and didn't evolve? Because genes are chemical information. Chemical information, like other forms of information, does not and cannot arise spontaneously (by chance). An intelligent power had to have placed the genes allowing for all the variations and adaptations within natural species. Certainly, mindless nature or the environment could not have done it.
MUTATIONS: There are genetic limits to biological change (evolution) in natural species. In order for biological change and evolution to occur across natural species, there must be a way for entirely new genes to originate, not just variations of already existing genes. Evolutionists hope and believe, by blind faith, that mutations will provide those new genes. Mutations are accidental changes in the genetic code caused by random environmental forces such as radiation. Radiation is mindless, so when energy from radiation penetrates the genetic code that radiation randomly changes the sequential structure of the code.
Evolutionists teach that, if given millions of years, random genetic mutations caused by mindless radiation will produce entirely new genes in species so that evolution can occur from one type of life into another. However, random genetic mutations, caused by radiation, are destructive, not constructive. That's why we protect ourselves from radiation! Even if mutations are not immediately harmful, after enough of them accumulate they will be harmful. And, even if a good mutation does occur, for every good mutation there will be hundreds of harmful ones with the net effect, over time, being harmful to the species as a whole and even causing extinction, not upward evolution.
What about "Junk DNA?" It isn't junk. Recent research shows that these "non-coding" segments of DNA are vital in regulation gene expression (i.e. when, where, and how genes are expressed in the body). We were ignorant of the usefulness of these portions of DNA.
At best, mutations produce only variations of already existing genes. Mutations may change the gene(s) for human hair so that another type of human hair develops, but it'll still be human hair and not feathers or something else. Most biological variations are from new combinations of already existing genes, not mutations.
When evolutionary scientists teach that random genetic mutations in species over, supposedly, millions of years caused by random environmental agents such as radiation, produced new genes (i.e. new genetic code with new genetic information) leading to entirely new forms of life, they are not teaching science but simply a faith, a belief!
But, don't genes come together randomly in our bodies when reproductive cells are produced? Yes, but the individual genes themselves didn't originate by chance. Imagine in a dance, individual partners come together randomly. That doesn't mean the individuals themselves came into existence by chance. Genes combine by chance but that doesn't mean the individual genes came into existence by chance!
"JUNK DNA" ISN'T JUNK: We were simply ignorant of their usefulness. Recent research shows that these so-called "non-coding" segments of DNA are vital in regulating gene expression (when, where, and how genes are expressed). There's no room for random mutations to operate safely. Random genetic mutations, caused by random environmental radiation, are destructive. Even if mutations are not immediately harmful, after enough of them accumulate they will be harmful. And, even if a good mutation does occur, for every good mutation there will be hundreds of harmful ones with the net effect, over time, being harmful to the species as a whole and even causing extinction, not upward evolution. Most variations are from new combinations of already existing genes, not mutations.
As for repetitive structures in DNA, they're not junk either. They may have a “back-up” purpose, like a spare tire in car, which the organism can utilize should it lose genetic material due to damage from random mutations caused by environmental forces.
Genetic information, like other forms of information, cannot arise by chance, so it is far more logical to believe that the DNA and biological similarities between species are due to a common Designer rather than common ancestry through evolution by way of random mutations. The Creator simply designed similar functions for similar purposes in all the various forms of life.
DNA similarities within a true species can be used to establish relationship because within a true species the various individuals can interbreed, but this not the case across true species. Therefore, similarities across true species cannot be used for establishing biological relationships.
NEW SPECIES: Although new species have come into existence, they don't carry any new genes. They've become new species only because they can't be crossed back with the original parent stock for various biological reasons. A biological "kind" allows for new species but not new genes. Nature has no ability to invent new genes for new traits. Only limited variations and adaptations are possible in nature, and all strictly within a biological "kind" (i.e. varieties of dogs, cats, etc.).
Because of time constraints, scientists have not always experimented and made verification before classifying organisms. Consequently, scientists many time have classified organisms as belonging to separate species when, in reality, they’re the same species, and many times organisms have been classified as belonging to the same species when, in reality, they’re separate species.
ACQUIRED CHARACTERISTICS CAN'T BE PASSED ON: Many people have wrong ideas of how evolution is supposed to work. Physical traits and characteristics are determined and passed on by genes - not by what happens to our body parts. For example, if a woman were to lose her finger this wouldn't affect how many fingers her baby will have. Changing the color and texture of your hair will not affect the color and texture of your children's hair. So, even if an ape's muscles and bones changed so that it could walk upright it still would not be able to pass on this trait to its offspring. Only changes or mutations that occur in the genetic code of reproductive cells (i.e. sperm and egg) can be passed on to offspring.
NYLON-EATING BACTERIA is not evidence of mutations producing new genetic information. The genes were degraded by mutations and that's how the capability came about. "It is like damaging the interior of a lock so that more and different keys can now unlock it." Read The Internet article
NYLON-EATING BACTERIA AND EVOLUTIONARY PROGRESS by biologist and creationist Brian Thomas.
PUNCTUATED EQUILIBRIA is a new theory of evolution that depends upon mega random radiation causing mega random mutations (accidental changes in the genetic code) to produce mega sudden changes. More and more evolutionists are believing in Punctuated Equilibria because the sudden changes would mean that species wouldn't have to go through transitional states. It's not rational to believe that mega random radiation and mutations will produce new genetic information enabling macro-evolution (evolution across biological "kinds") anymore than gradual accidental changes in the genetic code caused by low levels of random radiation. In fact, such complexity by chance is mathematically impossible! Read my Pravda Internet articles: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS! and HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM
IT'S INTERESTING THAT CARL SAGAN would have acknowledged sequential radio signals in space as evidence of intelligent life sending them, but he wouldn't acknowledge the sequential structure of molecules in DNA (the genetic code) as evidence for an intelligent Cause. Read my popular Internet article, HOW DID MY DNA MAKE ME?, and then ask yourself why you don't believe. DNA can't come by chance. It requires already existing DNA or a human genetic engineer in the laboratory to bring about more DNA.
SYNTHETIC DNA ISN'T NOT CAPABLE OF MACRO-EVOLUTION, only micro-evolution. The genetic code that scientists created by intelligent design in the lab is capable of undergoing only micro-evolution (variations of already existing genes), which can produce varieties within a natural species. It is not, however, capable of macro-evolution. Macro-evolution would require scientists to engineer entirely new genes because mindless Nature isn't capable of doing that. Read my Internet article: HOW DID MY DNA MAKE ME?
GENETIC AND BIOLOGICAL SIMILARITIES: Genetic information, like other forms of information, cannot happen by chance, so it is more logical to believe that genetic and biological similarities between all forms of life are due to a common Designer who designed similar functions for similar purposes. It doesn't mean all forms of life are biologically related! Also, "Junk DNA" isn't junk. These "non-coding" segments of DNA have recently been found to be vital in regulating gene expression (i.e. when, where, and how genes are expressed).

NATURAL SELECTION DOESN'T PRODUCE ANYTHING. It can only "select" from what is produced. Natural selection can only "select" from variations that are genetically possible and which have survival value. If a biological variation occurs that helps a species survive (i.e. change in skin color, etc.), that survival is called being "selected." That's all that natural selection is. There's no conscious selection by nature. It's a passive process. Natural selection is a figure of speech. The term itself is a tautology. The real issue is not natural selection but what biological variations are genetically possible. Natural selection only operates once there is life and reproduction and not before (After all, something has to be alive first before it can experience any change having survival value). Read my article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM.
NATURAL SELECTION IS NO BLIND WATCHMAKER because it can only "select" traits, not produce them. If a variation survives, that survival is called being "selected." Natural selection operates only once there is life and reproduction, not before, so it couldn't have been involved in life's origins. A partially-evolved cell (an oxymoron) would quickly disintegrate. It couldn't wait ("survive") millions of years for chance to complete it and then make it alive! Read: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST actually would prevent macro-evolution (evolution across biological "kinds"). Natural selection wouldn't preserve the evolution of new traits because these traits wouldn't have any survival value while they're evolving, and, in fact, would be a hindrance and liability to a species. A partially-evolved hand evolving from a previous trait, partially-evolved tissues, organs, biological structures would make a species unfit for survival. There are no fossils of partially-evolved species. All species of plants and animals in the fossil record are complete and fully-formed. They came into existence as complete, which can only be possible by creation!

WHAT ABOUT THE STARS? Gravity explains how the order found in the precise courses of trillions of stars is maintained, but gravity can't explain the origin of that order!

NOT MADE BY NATURE! Just because something exists in nature doesn't mean it was invented or made by Nature. If all the chemicals necessary to make a cell were left to themselves, "Mother Nature" would have no ability to re-organize them into a cell. It takes an already existing cell to bring about another cell. The cell exists and reproduces in nature but Nature didn't invent or design it! Nature didn't originate the cell or any form of life.

I HAVE GIVEN OVER A DOZEN LECTURES defending scientific creationism before evolutionist science faculty and students at colleges. At the end, I would open up for questions, comments, rebuttals. The science faculty, for the most part, was silent. They knew enough science to understand what I was saying was true. Some in the science faculty offered tricky rebuttals and I successfully answered them. It's those who don't know enough science that I've found the most challenging to convince.
DISORDER IN THE UNIVERSE is no argument against God's existence. The disorder is because of chance and entropy, but the order can only be rationally explained due to design.

THE ODDS of the sequence of molecules in a cell coming together by chance are similar to the odds of magnetic letters randomly bonding together in a sequence to form all the words and sentences in a dictionary. Without the right sequence, a cell's molecules won't work. Amino acids can come into existence by chance but not protein molecules. Without DNA/RNA there can be no protein molecules and without protein molecules there can be no DNA/RNA, and without RNA there can be no DNA and without DNA there can be no RNA. Gradually won't do. A non-living partially evolved cell would quickly disintegrate, not wait millions of years to become complete and living. It couldn't have even gotten to the partially evolved stage! It's all at once or not at all for a cell's survival.
Once you have a complete and living cell then the genetic program and biological machinery exist to direct the formation of more cells, but how could the cell have originated naturally when no directing code and mechanisms existed in nature?

ARE FOSSILS REALLY MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD? (Internet Article) Just google the title to access this Internet article which examines assumptions concerning fossil deposition as well as built-in assumptions involved in modern radiometric dating and arguments from starlight and time. Discusses lack of true transitional forms in the fossil record and lack of "age" sequence of the fossil layers. Discussion of mixed species in fossils (i.e. reptile and mammal fossils in the same stratum conveniently ignored by evolutionists).
IMAGINE A FISH WITH PART FINS, part feet with the fins evolving (transitioning) into feet. What survival benefit would there be? The fish couldn't use its fins or its feet, and there are no fossils showing such a creature ever existed. They only exist on automobile bumper stickers! There are no true transitional forms, either living or fossilized. Evolutionists realize this fact! Read my Internet article: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS!
DOES FISH DNA SUPPORT EVOLUTION OF LIMBS? Recent news is that scientists have discovered some snippets of DNA from an ancient fish that can cause mice to grow limbs. This is wrongly being hailed as evidence that fish had developed legs. Isn't it interesting that the fish they got the DNA from didn't have legs!
These snippets of DNA from the fish seem to be "triggering" mechanisms. They can only trigger ("turn on") genes, such as genes for formation of limbs, but, if the genes for limbs first exist, and since genes for limbs exist in mice then these triggering mechanisms, even if from a fish, will work. None of this means fish evolved legs.
THE FEW "INTERMEDIATE" FOSSILS claimed by evolutionists are highly disputed, even among the evolutionists. If macro-evolution really occurred there should be billions of indisputable intermediate fossils. Some evolutionists use similarities of traits between species as an argument for transitional forms. This is not a good argument because the traits they cite are complete, fully-formed, and fully functional, not in any true process of transition from one type of structure into another. What about the duck-billed platypus? It has traits belonging to both birds and mammals, but even evolutionists wouldn't argue that it's a transitional link between birds and mammals because of that! A true intermediate would be unfit for survival. Species with partially evolved tissues, organs, limbs, over millions of years would be unfit for survival!
PHEX PROTEIN IN T. REX DINO BONE DOES NOT MEAN BIRDS DESCENDED FROM DINOSAURS! First, single biomolecules are typically – as in, more often than not – widely distributed within one broad taxa, but also show up in otherwise unrelated groups. For example, earthworms use mammal-specific hemoglobin in their systems, but other worms and leeches do not. So, we cannot responsibly build giant stories about relatedness based on one molecule. Second, the assertion that PHEX is bird-specific may be a reflection of low sampling data. Perhaps PHEX is in some modern reptiles, but nobody has yet found it or searched for it. So, there are several possible reasons why T rex has PHEX, and only one of those is that dinosaurs evolved into birds. And of all the reasons, that is the least likely, since there is no known natural process that can dismantle one irreducibly complex organ (reptile billows lung or T rex hip structure) and reassemble a novel irreducible organ (flow-through lung or bird’s box-like hip structure). ~ Brian Thomas (Biologist and science writer at The Institute for Creation Research).
MICRORAPTOR WASN'T A DINOSAUR! It was a bird, a unique bird with four wings (it had fully-formed feathers!), but evolutionists classified it as a dinosaur to fit their theory. All of its traits were fully-formed and developed (not in a transitional state, i.e. part scales/part feathers). Species in a true transitional state wouldn't be fit for survival because their traits wouldn't be fully-developed or formed. Imagine a dinosaur with limbs evolving into wings and feathers over millions of years. It couldn't fully use its limbs and it couldn't fully use its wings and feathers. How would it be fit for survival over millions of years while it was evolving? Read the excellent Internet article, IS NEW FOSSIL A BIRD-EATING DINOSAUR? by biologist and creationist Brian Thomas.
NOT DINOSAUR FEATHERS! There's a lot of hype out there in the media.

HUMAN-CHIMP DNA MYTH: The actual similarity is between 70-87% not 99.8% as commonly believed. The original research stating 99.8% similarity was based on ignoring contradicting evidence.

Whatever similarities exist are better explained due to a common Designer Who designed similar functions for similar purposes, rather than chance common ancestry.

APES ARE QUITE COMFORTABLE IN HOW THEY WALK, just as humans are quite comfortable in how they walk. Even a slight change in the position of a muscle or bone, for either, would be excruciatingly painful and would not be an advantage for survival. There's no hard evidence that humans evolved from ape-like creatures anymore than there's hard evidence that apes evolved from four-legged-pawed dog-like creatures. All the fossils that have been used to support human evolution have been found to be either hoaxes, non-human, or human, but not non-human and human (i.e. Neanderthal Man was discovered later to be fully human). Textbooks and museums still continue to display examples and illustrations supporting human evolution which most evolutionists have rejected and no longer support. Many diagrams of ape-man creatures over the years were reconstructed according to evolutionary interpretations from disputable bones that have now been discredited but still being taught in school textbooks. Read Internet article: MISSING LINKS THAT NEVER WERE.
NO VIOLATION OF CHURCH/STATE separation in teaching both evolution and Intelligent Design because no one is being forced to believe in God's existence or any religion. Taxpayers on the both sides of the issue pay for public education. It is only fair that scientific arguments and evidence of both sides be presented, at the very least in public school textbooks. The issue is important because it affects people's lives, their values, philosophy, and worldview.
CANNOT MIX GENESIS AND EVOLUTION: God began with a perfect creation. Even all the animals, in the beginning, were herbivorous (not meat-eating and killing each other to survive, Genesis 1:30). Evolution doesn't begin with a perfect and harmonious creation. God says in Genesis1 ten times that life must reproduce after its own "kind." Macro-evolution teaches that life can change across "kinds." The Bible and true science teach that only micro-evolution, changes and adaptations within "kinds" are possible. Read my Internet article: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS!
MACRO-EVOLUTIONARY LOGIC is similar to seeing an earthquake churn-up a few well-formed rocks and concluding from this that earthquakes, if given enough time, can construct a building. Macro-evolutionists take the little things here and there produced by chance and extrapolate it into something extraordinary and then call it science. Notice, all evolutionists begin with a complete species. They don't begin their theory with partially-evolved species, with partially-evolved tissues and organs.
DO EYES CARRY SCARS OF EVOLUTION? (Internet Article) Just google the title to access this fantastic Internet article by biologist and creationist Brian Thomas. Thomas refutes every argument of a "flawed" design for the eye, and explains how and why the so-called flaw is actually the best thing for the eye. Read the article! It's amazing what facts evolutionists will ignore. Numerous times evolutionists have been proven wrong about their interpretation of a structure as being flawed or useless.
HUMAN EMBRYO doesn't have true gills or tail. These and other arguments have long been discarded by most evolutionists and not supported by any modern embryologist. Then, what are these structures? Read "Does The Human Embryo Go Through Animal Stages" at the Institute for Creation Research site. Briefly, what look like gills are early formation of facial and throat regions. What looks like a tail is the coccyx (at the end of the spinal column). Because it grows faster than the rest of the body, it has the appearance of a tail. The coccyx is useful in supporting the pelvic muscles.
ARGUMENT OF VESTIGIAL OR USELESS STRUCTURES: At one time 180 organs in the human body were considered useless or vestigial until further knowledge revealed that they weren't useless after all. The appendix, for example, has anti-bacterial properties like the tonsils. Even if a structure becomes useless because of mutations, that wouldn't support macro-evolution. Macro-evolution requires new organs to come into being. The breaking-down of existing organs because of mutations, etc. is not a helpful argument for macro-evolution. The big picture of science shows that we're here by creation and not by chance, so if there is a problem that creationists cannot answer right away, the benefit of doubt should be given to creationism. After further discovery and knowledge, the creationists will have an answer.
ATHEISTS ARE MORE EDUCATED is a red herring argument. What about all the educated that aren't atheists? Many times, the minority has been right in history. The atheists and evolutionists control the education system and certain arguments and evidences aren't presented or known, even among the educated. There are strong personal motives involved on the issue of origins. That is why it is important to present arguments and evidences of both sides to the public.
AMINO ACIDS CAN COME BY CHANCE BUT NOT PROTEINS: Find out why. Read my Pravda Internet article: NASA, FANTASY, AND SCIENCE. Most (not all) scientists believe we're here by chance. That doesn't make the belief a scientific fact. Scientists are human and they have personal motives influencing their various beliefs concerning origins. Mathematical probability shows that it is not rational nor scientific to believe that DNA and life came about by chance. Study the evidence yourself!
BURDEN OF PROOF: Anyone who claims the level of complexity and order in life and the universe happened by chance has the burden of proof. Many atheists think they have no burden of proof because they’re not claiming the existence of something. That is not true. Atheists are claiming the existence of something. They are claiming that we are here by chance and atheists expect for everyone to accept that claim on faith because they certainly can’t prove it. Even if creationists don't have all the answers, they should be given the benefit of the doubt, not the atheists. Read my Internet article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM
