Does It Really Matter What You Believe?]
One relatively simple process necessary for animal life is the ability for
blood to clot to seal a wound and prevent an injured animal (or person) from bleeding to
death. Yet the only way this intricate system works is when many complicated chemical
substances interact. If only one ingredient is missing or doesn't function in the right
way-as in the genetic blood disorder hemophilia-the process fails, and the victim bleeds
How can complex substances appear at just the right time in the right
proportions and mix properly to clot blood and prevent death? Either they function
flawlessly or clotting doesn't work at all.
At the same time, medical science is aware of clotting at the wrong time.
Blood clots that cut off the flow of oxygen to the brain are a leading cause of strokes
and often result in paralysis or death. When blood clots, either everything works
perfectly or the likely outcome is death.
For evolution to have led to this astounding phenomenon, multiple
mutations of just the right kind had to converge simultaneously or the mutations would be
useless. Evolutionists can offer no realistic explanation of how this is possible.
