The main criticism of that work to date concerns whether the Darwinian mechanism of natural selection and random variation is not in fact fully capable of generating specified complexity.
It is unparsimonious to say other universes exist. The locations over time of the present-day continents are shown in the inset.
If those are the only problems, then the accuracy of the Bible after Genesis 11 compares favorably with other ancient literature the Iliad. Hamilton and Richard Dawkins being frequent examples have over-emphasized the power of natural selection to shape individual traits to an evolutionary optimum, and ignored the role of developmental constraints, and other factors to explain extant morphological and behavioural traits.

Also, if there is no providence, how is it that the bodies of animals are arranged with such foresight, that the various members, being disposed in a wonderful manner, discharge their own offices individually?
Behe fails to provide biochemical evidence for intelligent design. The amnion surrounds the embryo with a watery substance, and is probably an adaptation for breeding on land.
Do we bring them the Gospel? Most obvious are cases of peripatric speciation after geographical isolation of a small group of populations. It seems, however, expedient, that first explaining the mystical rites and whatever imaginary doctrines some have laboriously framed concerning the stars, or magnitudes, to declare these; for heretics likewise, taking occasion from them, are considered by the multitude to utter prodigies.

In that book, however, I focus largely on examples from the human rather than the natural sciences. Similarly, the obvious functional design of animals and plants seems to denote the work of a Creator.
Possibility is the property of not being contradicted by any inference.
PBS evolution Glossary Adaptation the evolutionary process whereby a population becomes better suited to its habitat. We can see that this method is inefficient because 2, years later there are still people in the world who have not heard about Jesus.The aquatic lifestyle of cetaceans first began in the Indian subcontinent from even-toed ungulates 50 million years ago, over a period of at least 15 million years, however a jawbone discovered in Antarctica may reduce this to 5 million years.
