The page begins below.
Evo-illusion will give you many new insights as to why evolution may not be the final answer to the Puzzle of the existence of living organisms. It’s loaded with thought experiments that you will be able to do yourself, no matter what your education is, to help YOU figure out what may or may not have happened to bring about the beginning of life, multi-celled organisms, and us. You will not need the thinking of others; by reading Evo-illusion, YOU will be able to form your own conclusions. Evo-illusion will take you from the beginnings of the universe, the formation of the building blocks of life, the first proto-cells, the formation of DNA, whales, birds, and us. It has some fascinating conclusions about the future of mankind on this earth that will amaze you. It takes a purely science based and objective view of this controversial science.

8. Evolution: Inter Species Procreation: The photos and clip of the dog are, of course, Tongue In Cheek(TIC) If you noticed, I put a “TIC on” in the first minute of the vid so you evolutionauts won’t be able to say stevebee92653 doesn’t know ANYTHING. It’s a test of your sense of humor, which is absent in most evolutionauts. Most of you are so tense and serious, I doubt many would see the humor in this vid. I hope I am wrong. And, of course I know there is no inter-species procreation, with minor exceptions not worth mentioning.
The questions posed are, of course, valid. Did bio-systems evolve in just one species? Or a few? Or thousands. For those systems common to all vertebrates, if individual bio-systems evolved in just one species, it could not spread to other species without inter-species procreation. If a species evolved eyes, for example, that one species would have no way of spreading vision to the other vertebrates. Now when you add all of the other bio-systems, add in all phylum, the entire house of cards collapses. Did livers evolve in one, few, or many species? Pancreas? Hearing? Is the story the exact same for each bio-system? Remember that each system had to spread to each and every species. Each For each system considered, the chance that evolution is the motor behind the formation of that system becomes more and more remote. In fact, it becomes completely impossible.
You want references on this one? Your common sense and ability to reason is that reference. This is not a tough concept.
