Fourth, the processes of debugging the mass-production assembly-line, debugging computer software language code, or problem-solving in the field in the reactive mode in building construction…are human activities because we have difficulty getting things absolutely perfect the first time through. Trial-and-error is a reality of human creations and inventions. Reaching near perfection in human endeavors is a process over time. I have lost count how many times I have re-written, re-edited, and fine-tuned portions of this book in an effort to get it as near perfect as I can.
The proactive mode is an upfront investment of time, energy, and learned experience applied to future activities. But God is not an inexperienced novice requiring time to get things right. He does not need the reactive mode of blind, random-chance, trial-and-error illumination to create biological diversity.
From the Christian viewpoint, Darwinian macroevolution is an indirect insult to the architectural and engineering genius of God. It is an attempt to bring God down to our level. It is a projection of our limitations over things that we produce as imperfect creators…a human projection over the larger natural world outside of our creative capacity… which does not fit the empirical facts.
Basic entities in the natural world like gravity, energy, light, heat, momentum, velocity, electromagnetism, the properties of water, and the periodic table of elements, do not exhibit trial-and-error, half-way transitional characteristics. All of these things exist in mature, stable, and whole forms that are both orderly and intelligible…not in fractionally partial, transitionally intermediate, hybrid forms that are on their way to further development and thus difficult to identify, parse, quantify, and understand.
The theory of genetic mutations acted upon by natural selection through the process of blind, unguided, random chance in the reactive mode, as an explanation for the diversity of all of life, exposes itself as an entirely human philosophical construction superimposed over the natural world that does not square with the facts and is not consistent with reality.
