Evolutionary Engineering? Are you kidding me?

This article was posted on FoxNews.com. The first three paragraphs are what caught my attention.

WASHINGTON — With all that growing weight up front, how is it that pregnant women don’t lose their balance and topple over?

Scientists think they’ve found the answer: There are slight differences between women and men in one lower-back vertebra and a joint in the hip, which allow women to adjust their center of gravity.

This elegant evolutionary engineering is seen only in female humans and our immediate ancestors who walked on two feet, but not in chimps and apes, according to a study published in Thursday’s journal Nature.

The first two paragraphs are fine. Scientific question followed by scientific observation. That’s as it should be. It’s that third paragraph where we leap from science to science fiction. “Evolutionary engineering.” Seriously? Did they really just say that? How does a process that relies on mutations (which are losses of information) produce something that is engineered? Something that’s engineered is something that has intelligence, thought, and information put into it. A bridge is engineered. A computer is engineered. They are engineered by people with degrees. How does a series of mindless, unintentional, accidents produce something engineered? And then, how does one prove these changes over time? How does one prove that a specific line of offspring carried these changes and passed them on? It cannot scientifically be done.

Don’t get me wrong. I have no doubt that what these people are talking about was engineered. No question about it. It was engineered by God. The fact that these scientists suggest that this spine and hip system was engineered indicates that it is so well done that something was behind it making it happen. There is an intelligent being that has made His existence known to us. He told us that He made us. It just seems so obvious. Can it be scientifically proven? Nope. But this view makes much more sense of the information. It’s much more consistent with real observational science.

When you come across a book, you don’t automatically conclude that a warehouse with paper, ink, glue, cardboard, and stitching exploded and produced that book. When you come across a car, you don’t automatically conclude that a bunch of different kinds of metal, plastic, oil products, rubber, wood, and paint randomly came together and made a car. Why is it that we try to suggest that biological systems millions of times more intricate and complicated (and self-replicating) came into being by accident? It makes zero sense.

In the beginning, God created. All of it. Why? For His pleasure. It just makes sense.
