Reproduction has only one generation to evolve and not billions of years
We live in a world teeming with life. There are really only two possible explanations for this: chance or a creator. Random evolutionists, refusing to consider rationally the possibility of the latter in the light of the evidence, choose chance. Given enough time, say billions of years, all living things could evolve randomly, runs the argument. The flaw lies in ignoring the miracle of reproduction.
Virtually every form of organic life reproduces by the involvement of two parents which interact, sometimes even with the assistance of other organisms, as occurs when bees pollinate flowers. Of course, without reproduction no creature or plant could survive beyond one generation. And so random evolution has not had millions of years for reproduction to evolve. It has always had only one generation. That is not enough for systems of reproduction to arise by chance, and there are millions of such systems, physically often very different, but all conceptually and purposefully the same, and all highly complicated. Evolution needs generations to pass for changes to occur.
Next time you cut open an apple, look at how carefully arranged the pips are; there is a reason for that: God is in the pips, ensuring the apple will reproduce and survive.

Afterword 1: The Mystery of the Origin of Organic Life
Scientists cannot explain how organic life first arose. They have tried to create organic life in the laboratory but have failed (1), and now they insist that what cannot be created by design could have happened by chance. That is absurd. The question arises why organic life cannot be created from non-organic in the laboratory. After all, scientists are able to analyse the material or physical composition of all forms of organic life. Perhaps the answer lies beyond the boundaries of the material and physical world. As is argued in The Spiritual Cell below, all of organic life is saturated with spirituality, and, of course, scientists work only with the physical and the material, and cannot source the spiritual, and so cannot create life.

Afterword 2: The Mystery of the Origin of Reproduction
Scientists tell us nothing at all, as far as I am aware, about how reproduction itself could have arisen through evolution. That is a significant lacuna. The profound question of what came first, the chicken or the egg, remains unanswered. That is an important and fundamental question. Of course, it relates not only to chickens but to all forms of organic life. Whilst science is silent on the origin of reproduction, Genesis 1.11,12,22,28, and 29 mentions reproduction, and Genesis 1.11,12 and 29 talks expressly of the making or creating of “seed”. Furthermore, Nachmanides, the famous biblical commentator who lived from 1195 to 1270, says that God’s “blessed them” in verses 22 and 28 of Chapter 1 of Genesis conveyed that He was bestowing the power of procreation. The only rational answer to how reproduction could have arisen is, overwhelmingly, that it must have been created, and therefore that there must be a Creator.
