Unruly Facts




Unruly Facts - more fundamental than was considered

Unruly facts were there from the outset. In the introduction to his book "The Origin of Species," Darwin wrote in 1859: "I realize only too well that is discussed in this book, there's hardly a single point which no facts can be adduced that often lead to seemingly opposite conclusions than mine. "

However, contrary to what Darwin had expected, the number of problems continue to increase even further in the last 150 years. Especially in recent decades, with the great advances in molecular biology, the severity of these problems became evident. Since 1980, after the neo-Darwinism had already commonplace, more and more biologists began also distancing themselves from the neo-Darwinism. Today, scientific research has focused on possible alternative explanations.

The problems can be summarized into five problems wihcih especially combined, lead to the compelling conclusion that the prevailing theory of evolution by chance and natural selection can no longer called to be reasonable.

     1. Leaps: in fossiles, species appear suddenly - there will be no transitional forms
     2. Too slow: mutations are rare and usually harmful - populations resist evolution
     3. Devolution: small populations seem theoretical only option - however empirical inbreeding and loss of information
     4. Originality: proteins appear extremely complex and specific - one, however, no transitional forms
     5. Irreducibility: molecular level often reveals enormous coherence - gradual evolution seems unreasonable
