Intelligent Design, 1999.

"The following problems have proven utterly intractable not only for the mutation-selection mechanism but also for any other undirected natural processes proposed to date: the origin of life, the origin of the genetic code, the origin of multicellular life, the origin of sexuality, the scarcity of transitional forms in the fossil record, the biological big bang that occurred in the Cambrian era, the development of complex organ systems, and the development of irreducibly complex molecular machines." p29.
