Food for thought #6

Professor Jouko Virkkunen taught physics and electro-engineering at Helsinki University of Technology. He was a deep thinker and understood very well the difficulties with evolution. He deftly summarized the reason for his skepticism toward Darwinism. “I can understand that a creature without hands can obtain a kind of lump on the side as a result of mutations,” he said to me, “but I do not understand how a random mechanism can produce fine mechanics, a control system, and the computer program in the brain to move the hand. Evolution stands on clay feet.”
Quoted in HERETIC, ONE SCIENTIST’S JOURNEY FROM DARWIN TO DESIGN, by Matti Leisola and Jonathan Witt.
