In the 1990s, Richard Dawkins, fanatical atheist and leading spokesman for Darwinian evolution, was asked during an interview if he could produce an example of a mutation or evolutionary process that led to an increase in information. Although this had been known for some time to be a significant issue, Dawkins was unable to offer any such example of a documented increase in information resulting from a mutation. Following that interview, a mad scramble was made both by Dawkins and the atheistic scientific community to produce a satisfactory response to the embarrassing question. No such answer was ever produced—no such answer exists.
When Charles Darwin wrote The Origin of Species, science was still relatively primitive. Electron microscopes wouldn’t arrive for nearly another century, and the ability to study complex molecular structures and discover encoded information in living organisms was unheard of. Darwin explained the universe based solely on his personal, untested observations. Without sufficient technology to debunk his faulty theories, Darwin’s observations went largely unchallenged.
However, the deeper modern science goes, the more it is forced to accept the conclusion of intelligent design. One of the fascinating sciences driving such conclusions is the study called information theory.
