I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
What information are you basing 90 billion neurons and their need to be arranged in an exact pattern on? How do you know that? How was it proven and how do you know it wont be changed significantly?
The fact that you think evolution is driven by random mutation shows you do not understand the basic mechanisms. So you are not in a position to deny evolution. You can question it, which any intelligent person might do...and learn about it. But from your postings, you do not understand it. Billions of years allows for alot of genetic shuffling and recombination.

Organisms mutate at random. Some mutations are selected for, some simply die out. Selection occurs either due to sexual selection or just due to a higher rate of survival for those organisms with the mutated genes.
I debated this in another forum with people. I see there are too many posts for me to get through here in a quick fashion. Nobody was able to show me the actual poll and actual question by question results. Only paraphrased results in the Pew summary. Not only is the actual wording important, but so are the 53 questions leading up to question 54. These previous questions can put people in a certain mindset when answering.
Anyone have a link to all the questions and responses?
Problem is, I don't see a link in that for the internals of the poll....
Pew Forum and Pew Research Center Release Second Annual Poll | Pew Research Center's Religion & Public Life Project
I find it odd that they are going to such lengths to make it hard to see the internals...
Following Pew's link system, I found this...

Still no publication of the actual poll internals.
