"How precise is natural selection? (#C368)
First, evolutionists claim that evolution is extremely precise. It must be precise enough to “[eliminate] those individuals that do not look exactly like a twig or leaf in exquisite detail.” 1 2
Second, it is so imprecise that it could not eliminate the awkward half land animal and half whale as it adapted to the ocean where there were already advanced predators. 3

- ReMine, 1993, p. 143:”Natural selection is said to create mimicry by eliminating those individuals that do not look exactly like a twig or leaf in exquisite detail. … Nonetheless, natural selection was unable to see and eliminate mammal-like reptiles in the midst of having their jaw bones radically displaced into the middle ear (allegedly to form the delicate mammalian hearing apparatus).” ↩
- Coyne, 2009, p. 114: “Some katydids, for example, look almost exactly like leaves, complete with leaflike patterns and even ‘rotten spots’ resembling the holes in leaves. The mimicry is so precise that you’d have trouble spotting the insect in a small cage full of vegetation, much less in the wild.” ↩
