Overwhelming evidence of Design in Molecular Biology?
Biochemical Pathway Maps

I showed that particular biochemical pathway chart to a Darwinist once when he asked me for ANY evidence of intelligent design in biology. His response upon seeing it was something along the lines of, ‘Just because it is horrendously complex does not prove it was designed.’. ,,, Well maybe so, but such ‘horrendous complexity’ certainly does not give comfort to the notion that such ‘horrendous complexity’ can be the accumulation of random genetic accidents either!
Here is a ‘horrendously complex’ metabolic pathway chart:

Part of the ‘horrendous complexity’ inherent in metabolic pathways is gone over here:

At the 6:00 minute mark of the following video, Chris Ashcraft, PhD – molecular biology, gives us an overview of the Citric Acid Cycle, which is, after the 10 step Glycolysis Pathway, also involved in ATP production:

As well, metabolic pathways in general are found to be ‘optimal’:

Excerpt: ,,, In other words, metabolic pathways are optimized to withstand inevitable concentration changes of metabolites.


This headline sums up the preceding finding very nicely:

Kleiber’s law
Excerpt: Kleiber’s law,[1] named after Max Kleiber’s biological work in the early 1930s, is the observation that, for the vast majority of animals, an animal’s metabolic rate scales to the 3/4 power of the animal’s mass.

4-Dimensional Quarter Power Scaling In Biology – video

Jerry Fodor and Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini put the problem that Quarter Power Scaling presents to Darwinism this way:

“Although living things occupy a three-dimensional space, their internal physiology and anatomy operate as if they were four-dimensional. Quarter-power scaling laws are perhaps as universal and as uniquely biological as the biochemical pathways of metabolism, the structure and function of the genetic code and the process of natural selection.,,, The conclusion here is inescapable, that the driving force for these invariant scaling laws cannot have been natural selection.”
Jerry Fodor and Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini, What Darwin Got Wrong (London: Profile Books, 2010), p. 78-79

The reason why ’4-Dimensional’ metabolic pathways are impossible for Darwinism to explain is that Natural Selection operates on the 3-Dimensional phenotypes. ’4-Dimensional’ metabolic pathways are simply ‘invisible’ to natural selection. The fact that 4-Dimensional things are completely invisible to 3-Dimensional things is best illustrate by ‘flatland’:

“Geometry is unique and eternal, a reflection from the mind of God. That mankind shares in it is because man is an image of God.”

Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

You know why I have removed much of your post.

Another problem is that carpet bombing the forum is pointless as members will respond to one point each or may respond to all points. This will leave you in a position where you simply do not have the time to reply. This will create animosity and other mods and I will have to deal with the mess.

I am aware that you are eager to show how ID is explained, but you MUST restrain your compulsion to cut and paste numerous instances or walls of text.
