Natures wonders: Dragonfly (Introduction)

DAVID: This insect is the wonder of flying insects, better than any helicopter we've invented. Flies forward and backward, high speed darting, even with a wing damaged. The most surprising part is that it appears in the fossil record, from 300 million years ago looking just like it does now, afer a 50 million year gap of no insects with wings ( shades of the Cambrian explosion). And we are told this was invented by a committee of intelligent insect cells which recognized it needed wings. It took 50 million years with no experimental intermediates produced, just 50 million years to devise a perfect plan for the body and wings and 'pow!' out it comes perfectly functional then, now shown frozen in stone to instruct us as to how evolution works. If it appears suddenly and rather perfect judging by its 300 million years of little change, how does evolution really work?

Conclusion: most species pop up completely functional. Huge gaps between precursor forms, also fully fuctional. No Darwinian tiny steps. Darwin was wrong!

Aw shucks, David, how many more times? Even evolutionists have agreed that Darwin's gradualism was wrong (ever heard of punctuated equilibrium?)You and I agreed on that yonks ago, and have spent several years discussing how evolution "really works". One hypothesis is the "intelligent cell" possibly called the "inventive cell"? Remember?
