PHYSICS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
COSMOLOGY DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!
EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!

Blah, blah, blah.
As if no one has ever heard this argument before.
Chance doesn't explain the complexity brought about by evolution. Mutations are random, but natural selection most certainly does not.

Use some imagination. If you have to use an analogy that completely fails, get creative. Make it something new. Put some thought into it. Don't just parrot what everyone's heard before.

Tornadoes won't do it. You need a WALL-E, Wally.

Is that you, Kent? Even if 'twere so, at least it's an explanation.. Your so-called Bible doesn't even give any explanations of how your so-called 'God' created this universe, this world & all the life on it; least of all how a man could be formed from a lump of dirt, then a clone-woman formed from one of said dirt-man's ribs.

I mean, where's the diagrams, formulae and equations? Enquiring minds need to know these things.

Ergo, science. Which destroys religion. QED.

Evolution is not chance, it is not random. The traits that work in nature will cause the individual to prosper and have more offspring. That is not chance or random.

Evolution is more like a team of technicians testing different methods and materials for a few million years, and in the end building a fully functional Boeing 747.

Except a tornado is much more random than chemistry.
