Evidence for Design in Biology
Intelligent design (ID) has been described as "creationism in a cheap tuxedo." The most common complaint against ID is that it is not testable and represents a "God of the gaps" argument. We actually agree that any version of ID that fails to identify the designer probably is not testable. So, we suggest that a biblical creation model be compared to the predictions of a solely naturalistic worldview. What about all the examples of poor design, including "junk DNA" and pseudogenes? Actually, the latest scientific data shows that the "best" examples of bad design are, in fact, not bad...

- God of the Gaps - Do All Christian Apologetics Fall Into This Kind of Argument?
- Examples of Bad Design Gone Bad - Evolutionists examples (human esophagus, Panda's thumb, vertebrate retina, appendix, junk Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA, etc.) of "bad" design refuted through new studies
- Design in DNA: Dual Coding Found in Nearly All Genes - New evidence shows DNA has been optimized to simultaneously encode both regulation of gene expression and protein composition in 86% of genes.
- "Junk" DNA: Why non-coding DNA Isn't Really Junk - Definitive evidence for design and function of DNA that does not carry the information necessary to make a protein.non-coding Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA found! When your evolutionist friends tell you that all the junk Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA in our genes precludes an intelligent Creator, send them here!

Fazale Rana (Ph.D. in chemistry), vice president of research and apologetics at Reasons To Believe, has written a new book, The Cell's Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator's Artistry, that shows that cellular biochemistry points to the existence of the Creator who designed it. Whereas most intelligent design books attempt to show the existence of design by demonstrating the existence of irreducible complexity, Dr. Rana examines the cell's biochemistry with broad strokes of how everything works together with such marvelous fidelity. So, even if a single piece or line of evidence might be dismissed as a statistical outlier, the weight of evidence makes a powerful case for design by a Creator. Each chapter begins with an analogy from the art world that relates to the topic at hand. Apparently, Dr. Rana is quite an art enthusiast. More...
The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism by Michael Behe
Darwin's Black Box author Michael Behe takes on the limits of evolution through an examination of specific genetic examples. Behe finds that mutation and natural selection is capable of generating trivial examples of evolutionary change. Although he concludes that descent with modification has occurred throughout biological history, the molecular devices found throughout nature cannot be accounted for through natural selection and mutation. Behe's book claims to develop a framework for testing intelligent design by defining the principles by which Darwinian evolution can be distinguished from design.
