Evolution of Eye
Señor Coyne explains that the bacterial flagellum, "is composed of dozens of separate proteins, all of which must work in concert for the hairlike 'propellor' to move" (137). The link below is a diagram of what it looks like. This is an apparatus that demonstrates such complexity that creationists use it as a "poster-flagellum" to demonstrate the case that evolution can't produce all things. Yet evolutionists have shown that this development is "feasible". (138) Research the leading theory on how this motor evolved to the complex structure it is today, and report your findings here. Also, can you think of any other structures that ID proponents would be eager to use as "proof" of intelligent design? Examples from the book included: the human brain, eyeball, and blood-clotting chain.
