Posterboard Analogy

Imagine you handed a piece of poster board to a child and asked them to cover it randomly with pencil dots. Then you handed it to an artist and asked them to erase dots so that the final result looked like Abraham Lincoln. A creationist would look at the final result and say, God must have done that. It could not possibly happen by chance. As evolutionist would say, That is analogous to the way evolution works. The child is random mutation and the artist is natural selection.

Another way to look at it is to consider how Sidney Crosby came to play pro hockey. It started with tens of thousands of boys wanting to play for the NHL (National Hockey League) with a random set of skill levels. They were gradually winnowed down to the pro players. This was anything but a random process, as proved by Mr. Crosby’s skill.
