Thank you for your thoughtful summary of the evolutionary argument for the origins of life and subsequent descent with modification. For evolution to occur requires the spontaneous generation of new life forms (assuming the platform of the necessary DNA / RNA is available along with the necessary cell machinery to translate the DNA into the proteins required for life to exist). Because changes in DNA sequences are required to produce new life forms, then this aspect of the evolutionary paradigm is a critical event that must occur to produce new life forms. However, mutation events are known to be random and rarely productive so that any mutational outcome is likely to be non-viable.

The evolutionary explanation for the existence of life cannot sustain the kind of logical argument that can lead us sequentially to a conclusion that life could come into existence and even become increasingly more complex as it climbs the evolutionary ladder. Any robust argument presented to describe a real world event should contain a series of steps, each one of which can be seen to be derived from a reasonable precursor. Evolutionary science cannot provide this type of step-by-step model which might in turn allow it to be examined in terms of the reasonableness of each identifiable intermediate or stage which, when placed into an overall scenario, constitutes a persuasive argument for the truth of evolution. The problem for evolution is that the Truth is in the details and can be recognized where it is present. There is no such Truth to be discerned in the evolutionary model, I believe.
