Darwinism fails on several accounts:
It does not consider the existence of the individual organism with its focus on its material constituents, genetic molecular changes.
It sees as the driving force, merely the electrochemical processes of atoms, which are said to underlie the complexity we find in life.
This is all said to be random.
The shaping of living forms is held to be survival until procreation, when clearly so many factors are involved in mating, both physical and emotional.
It speaks of species, thereby recognizing that they are more than abstractions, in conflict with the idea of this being a purely physical cosmos.
The focus on molecules and species neglects the reality of ecosystems. An individual animal or plant exists solely because it is at the same time, part of a greater whole.
It fails most clearly and completely when we contemplate our own existence:
As I see this screen, pause to collect and connect these thoughts, feel the wonder, and move my thumb over individual letters, one person, the explanatory value of Darwinism is reduced to the infinitesimal. I can understand how the physical structure of the phone, in this setting that contains my still functioning brain, shapes the relationship I have with the material world and unknown persons with whom I am communicating. That material code running on the computer that is my relational Spirit results in this whole, cleaved into bits and pieces of experience while remaining one. All this complexity, to what end but the journey of creature to its Maker. Without God, without any acknowledgement of life’s ultimate purpose, any theory about the creation of the universe, all living beings and mankind, is going around in circles, providing illusion to people hungering for truth.
