I would like to discuss this essay that I have put together which I believe poses a new angle on the Intelligent design POV.
I feel tht this POV will form a distinct method for scientists to confirm the necessity of a designer for comples functional mechanical form (life)
This essay is basic in its design but it can become quite involved as more information dealing with specifics arises, so don't be put off by its simplicity of original form.
This paper is for all of those people that have looked
at the structure exhibited by life and thought it was
beyond the possibility of evolutions mechanism to acheive.
For most people making this assertion turns into an argument
from incredulity because you can't explain exactly what
makes such structures impossible for evolution to form.
This problem is about to end.
The answer to why random mutation can't create complex
mechanical formation is because of the infinite
possibilities for 3 dimensional geometry.
Our DNA provides the blueprint for every structure formed
in our bodies. DNA codes for every aspect of 3 dimensional
form that we see, such as the femur of a sauropod, the
largest of which is about 6 1/2 feet tall. Pictured
below is a man standing next to a giant femur:
And this same DNA can also code for the same bone in the
Shrew [Microtus agrestis] which has a femur length of
approximately 15mm or about 1/2 inch.
This observation opens up some undertanding as to what is
possible for the DNA to form, but it doesn't truly open
your eyes until you understand a little bit about 3D
In school we all touched on geometry in math class and we
have all seen the various forms such as cubes and spheres
and that was no big deal as these were just common shapes
that made sense, however geometry is a much greater tool
for understanding than you thought.
3 dimensional geometric forms are so versatile that they
can't all be defined, they are in fact infinite in
possibility. As I showed above the 3 dimensional form of
just a single functional bone type within a living system
can exist in very extreme sizes, but that is just the tip
of the range of what possible shapes can be coded for by DNA.
What you don't see is all the other possible shapes that DNA
can code for. The 3 dimensional geometry of a femur can be
infinitely configured, it can be most any of the shapes
listed below or it could incorporate any of these geometries
as part of its shape:
polygon, bicentric polygon, concave polygon, constructible
polygon, convex polygon, cyclic polygon, decagon, digon,
dodecagon, enneagon, equiangular polygon,equilateral polygon,
henagon, hendecagon,heptagon, hexagon, Lemoine hexagon,
Tucker hexagon, icosagon,swastika, octagon, pentagon, cyclic pentagon, regular polygon, regular decagon, regular dodecagon,
regular hendecagon, regular hexagon, regular icosagon, regular octagon, regular pentagon, star polygon, decagram, dodecagram,
octagram, heptagram, hexagram, nonagram, pentagram, triangle,
acute triangle, anticomplementary triangle, equilateral
triangle, excentral triangle, tritangent triangle, isosceles triangle, medial triangle, auxiliary triangle, obtuse triangle
rational triangle, right triangle, 30-60-90 triangle, isosceles right triangle, scalene triangle, Reuleaux triangle.
parallelogram, rhombus, Lozenge, rhomboid, Penrose tile,
Penrose dart, Penrose kite, rectangle, diamond, Harborth's
tile, square, trapezium, isosceles trapezium, quadrilateral,
cyclic quadrilateral, tetrachord, chordal tetragon ?
Brahmagupta's trapezium, equilic quadrilateral kite,
rational quadrilateral, strombus, tangential quadrilateral, tangential tetragon, trapezoid, isosceles trapezoid, Curved,
annulus, arbelos, circle, disc, Archimedes' circle, Bankoff
circle, circumcircle, excircle, incircle, nine-point circle,
crescent, lune, oval, Reuleaux polygon, rotor, Reuleaux
triangle, sphere, salinon, semicircle, triquetra,
Archimedean spiral, cubocycloid, deltoid, ellipse, smoothed
This list is by no means complete, these are just the shapes
that we have assigned names to for communication purposes.
The reality is that the range that geometric shapes can exist
in is infinite.
DNA could be coded to cause an infinite range of possible
forms just for one single bone, however, when it comes to
functional interactive mechanical form there is an extremely
finite range of possibilities that will allow for optimal
functionality in a mechanical system or a chemomechanical
Our bone structure is controlled from the begining of our
existence till our death. Bone is constantly being
remodelled as we grow and it requires control throughout
its existence or it will cease to be an optimal component
within our mechanical system. One of the best ways to
visualize the level of control needed to keep our bone
structure relative mechanically is to see what the
structure of the bone is made of.
Osteoblasts are the cells that form new bone, they are
approximately 20 microns in diameter, which is equal to
about one thousandth of an inch. So every square inch of
bone surface has about 1,000,000 Osteoblasts. All of
these cells in each bone must conform to the blueprint
provided by the DNA in order to allow for optimal
mechanical form and function to exist within our living
Now that we have delved into the enormity of what
comprises mechanical form we can confront the
evolutionary mechanism of random mutation head on.
The evolutionist belief that your structure can be
randomly found by mutation of genetic structure is
only realistic if there are finite possibilities for
a form to exist in. Their theory that by randomly
changing the code they can eventually hit a shape
that can be selected is unfounded in reality. It
becomes impossible when confronted with infinity for
possibilities that only contain a tiny range of
One further wrinkle that we should note from current
research is shown below:
Quantitative Trait Loci for Femoral Size and Shape in
a Genetically Heterogeneous Mouse Population
Suzanne K. Volkman, Andrzej T. Galecki, David T. Burke,
Michael R. Paczas1, Maria R.Moalli1, Richard A. Miller,
& Steven A. Goldstein1.
The aim of this study was to examine the genetic effects
on cortical bone geometry. Genotypes from 487 mice were
compared to geometric traits obtained from µCT. We found
14 genetic markers that associate with geometric traits, demonstrating the complexity of genetic control over bone
Our DNA controls bone form by a multitude of separate
genetic influences and any one of these genetic influences
has an infinite range of possible values. Therefore we can
now show that our bones shape is not just infinite, it is
14 times infinite because of the vast array of other
parameters that accompany mechanical form. Remember, each
bone must grow in accord with the rest of the bones in
your body so You must also consider time and rate of growth
parameters for the entire life of the mechanical system
and any of these parameters can have a nearly infinite value.
With an infinite range of possible shapes and properties
random mutation has no hope of providing continuous
selectable changes over time to create the variety of
comlex mechanical forms we observe in living systems.
The only possible mechanism that can provide for the
patterns of mechanical form is intelligence since it
can logically choose the extremely minute functional
possibilities from within a sea of infinite nonfunctional possibilities.
Evolution is now checkmated by a logical and definable
reason, and we can infer directly the necessity of an
