(b) ‘The universe is too complex for evolutionary theory to explain it.’ Discuss. [10]

It can be argued that the universe is too complex for evolutionary theory to explain it with reference to intelligent design. This states that some organisms are way too complex to have been created through evolution. For example, if you take away a feature from the eye it will not be able to see thus it would not have evolved as all its features were needed for it to be able to be classed as an eye.

Secondly, Paley's watch analogy explains how the world shows design and order which proves that the world had to be designed rather than just have developed through evolution as the theory states.

Thirdly, Plato was a philosopher who argued this physical world is the world of appearances thus  it is all an illusion thus too complex for an evolutionary theory to explain it because you cannot actually explain an illusion because it is not even
