Modern scientific studies have revealed that living organisms throughout nature are extremely well designed for their environment. Books and documentaries on nature are full of examples of how organisms are well designed. In addition, there is virtually no mention of any non-optimum or poor design.
Evolutionists have tried in vain to find examples of poor design in nature but they have failed. In the few cases where evolutionists have claimed to have found poor design, it has actually been found that the only poor thing was the finite understanding of the scientists about what good design actually was!
The continuous praise given to design in nature is great evidence for a Creator. Even though humanists pay their obligatory homage to goo-to-you evolution.
Take a closer look at birds. Birds provide an excellent example of complete optimum design. There are about 9,000 different species of bird living today and all of them are supremely well designed for their particular environment. One of the optimum design features of birds is the feather. In the case of flying birds, the flight feathers always have the intricate interlocking of barbs and barbules.
But if birds had evolved, we would not expect to see every single species of bird with an optimum feather design. Since evolution would require millions of years for a feather to become fully optimized for flight, we would expect to see some flying creatures today with feathers which were not yet fully optimized.
However, no such creatures exist and no such creatures are present in the fossil record. It is very difficult for evolution to explain why there was supposedly wants a need for land creatures to fly but that the need is no longer present. It is also very difficult for evolution to explain why there is no trace of evidence that land creatures ever evolved into birds. The optimum design of birds provides remarkable evidence of design.1
