From David Klinghoffer at Evolution News and Views:
Stump your Darwinist friends by asking them to explain, in evolutionarily adaptive terms, biological features like the precise pattern of the maple leaf or of an angiosperm flower. “That’s a fantastically serious challenge to Darwinism,” says Discovery Institute biologist Michael Denton in this brief but delightful video conversation — a “nightmarish scenario.” Why? Because Darwinism by definition must justify such features, including the taxa-defining novelties, as having been seized upon by natural selection because they were adaptive. I mean, that pattern specifically and not some other.
It’s the specificity that’s the problem. More.
Worse, Denton is too old to be denied a degree or fired.
Note: Some friends will find the challenge easy because, with Darwinism, one is allowed to just make stuff up (the just-so story).
