Someday, as a biologist, I'm going to turn the tables on engineers and

Great! What are your falsifiable predictions for a creation hypothesis?
How do you intend to test them?

It's not fair to misrepresent one's opponents in this manner. 'Dishonest.

Not a thing about supernatural entities in neo-Darwinian literature.

Further, this is a very misleading description of natural selection.
Selection, after all, does not begin and end with mutation (chance events).
There is non-random retention of traits.

That's been observed in natural and laboratory (not to mention pet and food)

Until we know the particulars, there's no basis for a statistical
analysis of the probability of the origin of life.

What do you think about the mammal-like reptiles from the Cretaceous?
Or the fossils of feathered reptiles? Piltdown forgeries, no doubt?
