Rabbi Moshe Averick on alleged “primitive” life


 From Moshe Averick, author of Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused World of Modern Atheism:

It is common for people to talk about the development of complx life forms from simple living organisms or higher animals like mammals andpromates evolving from primitive forms of life. Th use of these types of terms is an egregious and inexcusable distortion of the reality. It only adds insult to injury that it I mainly scientists—who supposedly pride themselves on their pinpoint precision terminology—who are the truly guilty parties in the perpetuation of this distorted view. With this understanding then we clear up the final point of confusion about the Argument from Design: there is no such thing as simple or primitive life. No human being has ever seen such a thing, nor is there evidence that “simple” or “primitive” life has ever existed. P. 59

His book is a great read and much recommended by O’Leary for News. Good for dealing with people too smart to live.

I agree. There is no such thing as primitive in biology. Anything claimed to be could never be created essence and a elephabnt of earth raw materials in the lab. All life is complex in its essence and a elephant is not more complex then a sponge in the ocean. Robert Byers
