Re: “McIntosh argues that the sunlight flooding the earth is no help at all unless machines are present which can harness the energy.”
Ever heard of photosynthesis? Let's see you argue that's not a “machine.”
Better stick to thermodynamics as biology and Natural Selection seems to be beyond your limited comprehension.I cannot believe that a scientist could be peddling such utter rubbish.

This correspondent has not understood the thermodynamic principles which apply to all systems including biological ones. The answer that he gives of photosynthesis is of course the very machine that one needs, so rather than negating, it proves the point that was made in the article! Natural selection will never build such a machine unless it is there already—;in this case the machinery of photosynthesis. And this is falsifiable. If the correspondent could show that such a device could arrive from simpler components left to themselves in a controlled experiment, we can all go home. It has never been done since random energy never produces machines which are not there already. I would recommend the correspondent read Wilder-Smith’s The Natural Sciences Know Nothing of Evolution.
