What absolute crap. If you don't realise that evolution is the truth then you simply don't understand it properly.
Creationists always point to systems as they are now and show how unlikely it would be to evolve. However, these systems never evolve prima facie. Take, for example, the eye. Creationist will describe the fantastic sophistication of the lens, the way it's able to regulate the amount of light that enters, or how the rods and cones can sense the wavelengths of light that enter the eye. Truly, it is an amazing thing and could never evolve spontaneously.
But it didn't.
We see simple eyes in many other species. If you look at some platyhelminth worms, some of the simplest organisms around, they have eye spots, simple light sensing cells allowing the worm to know the direction of the light and not much more. There are still more complex animals where the eyespots have become curved into half spheres, which allow increased resolution. This process occurs until the eye becomes more and more complex.
Creationists also say dumb things like 'what good are these poor quality eyes?' Well, they don't have to start off very good if everything else has got poor eyesight. As predators eyesight improves (organisms with better eyesight catch more prey are healthier, live longer and have more offspring, which in turn may have better eyesight), so too must the prey organisms eyesight. Prey with better eyesight, or better camoflage don't get caught and don't get eaten. Prey which aren;t eaten are more likely to have offspring than those which have been eaten - even a creationist can't deny that, although they will try.
Anyhoo, I don;t know why i'm wasting my breath because you've already made your closed, shrivelled, mind up, and nothing I can tell you will change it.
