Accidental evolutionists seem to insist that through a desire to survive and adapt to environmental challenges, an organism began developing the mechanism for better survival, and passed on such a developed mechanism to offspring. While it may seem speculatively reasonable to consider this, there is still a gaping hole: Where did such a mechanism (of adapting and passing genetic improvements to future generations) arise from? What incentive do lifeless chemicals have to code this ability into the genetic structure?
The only answer accidental evolutionists seem to give us to these questions is that this all must have been a random accident. It should not have happened, but accidentally did, they claim. This is seemingly accidental evolutionists’ only answer to all the real puzzles of existence: it was an accident that should not have happened.
The assumption that accidental evolutionists seem to make is that each event, from the initial combination of chemicals to each genetic variation, took millions if not billions of years to occur. With this much time at their disposal, all sorts of accidental variations could supposedly happen. They claim that from all the variations that did take place, the ones which extended or improved life were retained because those variations survived. The other accidental variations didn’t work, so those species must have died off. The other variations fell to the wayside as the weaker creatures got killed off. This part of the theory is called ‘survival of the fittest.’ Improved variations were supposedly selected through ‘natural selection.’
