section we have only examined a few examples of the concept
of irreducible complexity. In fact, most organs and systems
in living things possess the feature. On the biochemical level
in particular, systems function by the working together of
a number of independent parts, and cannot by any means be
reduced to further simplicity. This fact invalidates Darwinism,
which tries to account for the design in life by natural influences.
Darwin said that "if it could be demonstrated that any complex
organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by
numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would
absolutely break down." Today, modern biology has revealed
countless examples of this. One can only conclude, then, that
Darwinism has "absolutely" broken down.
