Life From Life Editorial Feb. 16

The following is an editorial by Dr. Steve Johnston published in the Curry Coastal Pilot. It states science classes in public schools should not be censored by Federal Judges.
Intelligent design should be taught and students should be allowed to make up their minds based upon the evidence.

A federal judge in Kitzmiller v. Dover decided to censor what you may read and determined public school students are not allowed to know about intelligent design. The truth is that Louis Pasteur proved the law of biogenesis that life comes from life.

Materialist evolution is a nonstarter because it cannot explain its own existence. Variations are possible within a species, but microevolution is limited within kinds or breeds. Macroevolution or the creation of a new breed through evolutions has never been witnessed. Mutations are copying errors and are not a path to complex systems. There are no known examples of a mutation adding complexity. A cell is not merely material and energy shaped by chance. Living cells are material and energy shaped by design information or knowledge. There is a limit beyond which something is for all practical purposes impossible.

Generally, anything with less than 1 chance in 10 to the 50th power of occurring randomly is essentially impossible. The chance of a living cell occurring by random chance would be 1 of 10 to the 33,000th power, which is far beyond zero.Science students have a right to know that life cannot occur without intelligent design. Life was either created by God or evolved from non-living matter by accident. There is no third choice. Students have the right to hear the facts and make up their own mind.
