There is much talk and armwaving about evolution being a fact. However until these three questions can be answered it is not yet time to drop the word 'theory' and replace it with 'fact'. Anyone like to put me right? 1 Science has not been able to provide a mechanism that will enable inanimate chemicals to spontaneously combine to create a reproducing living organism. 2 Random genetic mutations are invariably harmful and even if not cannot add new information to the genome thus increasing its complexity. 3 Science has not yet been able to show a genetic mutation that does in fact add information to the genome.
