Questions Evolutionists need to Answer

These are a couple of questions from many that arise from my own interest in biology. There are plenty more in other fields of endeavour - cosmology, geology etc. For a longer list of questions, and rebuttals of answers by evolutionists, go to 15 Questions for Evolutionists.
  1. Where did the first cell come from?

    Evolutionary theory depends on having self reproducing organisms. These need to pass on their DNA, along with any modifications, to their offspring.

    These organisms need to be able to go into their environment and find and process raw materials to both feed themselves and to use them to construct offspring. This is an extremely complex beast - far beyond the capabilities of man's current technology. When was the last time you saw, e.g. a photo-copier, go into the forest and cut down a tree and convert it into paper when it's hopper was empty? But this is simple! To match a single cell, on top of this, it needs to be able to source iron ore and convert it to steel, oil and convert it to plastic, beach sand and convert it to silicon semiconductors and so on, and then assemble it all into a new photo-copier! This is equivalent to what single cell organisms do.

    Scientists are making preliminary attempts to replicate some of the functionality of a single cell, but it is proving extremely difficult!1

    So, where did this first cell come from?

  2. How did Sexual Reproduction Start?

    When you start to think about the steps required for this to happen, one's head starts to spin. I know it is the top of the food chain, but when you think about human sexual reproduction, which is the one we are most familiar with, the steps involved are mind blowing. To pick a few major points out in the process: And all this is without asking the question of how a baby (a complex multi-cellular organism), could possibly evolve anyway!
  3. How did Photosynthesis Start?

    Man has been unable, so far, to reproduce this amazing technology - to convert sunlight into chemically stored energy. Unfortunately this process is quite complex, needing lots of complex timing and chemistry along the way. When commenting how long it will take, one scientist commented "Ask me again in 10 years and I'll probably say another 10 years".2

    I had a bio-chemist as my High School Biology teacher who attempted to get us to learn the process - even the bit that she tried to drill into our brains was complex enough. How does such a brilliant and complex process arise simply by chance? The obvious answer is - it can't!

From years of experience as a design engineer, I know how difficult it is to get even a simple system to work, let alone a complex one. There is a reason they came up with the second law of thermodynamics - it basically says that things tend to fall apart, and you don't have to be around the real world very long to see that in operation! Evolutionists seem to live in a theoretical world where the opposite is true, they think that somehow, given the right length of time, things that don't happen will. It defies common sense.
