Irreducible complexity can be dismissed in one paragraph:SECONDLY
Irreducible complexity, as you have referred to the obvious design in living things, can not be dismissed quite so easily
To establish that something could NOT have evolved in manageable steps, you would have to know and eliminate EVERY POSSIBLE pathway that could ever have occurred, which is impossible even in principle, as you cannot ever know and dismiss every single possible function, known and unknown, that any possible series of intermediate steps were evolved for. The most obvious mistake of IC is to assume the components or steps were aimed towards the function we see them performing today. Yet we know well that functions can change, parts can be co-opted from different functions, and so on. IC therefore fails, utterly, even in principle, even as a theoretical argument.
Sanford failed by making a falsifiable claim that was falsified.
IC cannot even get that far. Its a joke.
