It would be an illusion to think that what we are aware of at present is any more than a fraction of the full extent of biological design. In practically every field of fundamental biological research ever-increasing levels of design and complexity are being revealed at an ever-accelerating rate. The credibility of natural selection is weakened, therefore, not only by the perfection we have already glimpsed but by the expectation of further as yet undreamt of depths of ingenuity and complexity.
To those who still dogmatically advocate that all this new reality is the result of pure chance one can only reply, like Alice, incredulous in the face of the contradictory logic of the Red Queen:
‘Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying”, she said. “One can’t believe impossible things”. “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the queen. “When I was your age I did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”’
