All cells need to perform certain functions and some cells perform additional, specialised functions. A single-celled organism is performing fewer functions than a multi-celled organism. The functions that an organism performs are closely related to the diversity of environments in which it makes its living.

Yes. But were you not suggesting to Little idiot that simplicity ruled out his ideolgy?!

You're confused. Little Idiot proposes something like a Master Mind running the entire universe. To run the entire universe requires the Master Mind to perform many functions, sort of like Santa Claus on Christmas Eve...

Santa Claus not only has to get around to all the chimneys in the world, he has to choose appropriate gifts depending on whether the recipient has been naughty or nice. I don't know where he gets the gifts from. Perhaps they are made by The Great GiftMaker.

Santa Claus has to get up and down chimneys as well, not a simple task for a fat old elf. He has to communicate with reindeer.

So; simplicity does rule out the possibility that anything other than chemical impulses could have possibly originated the existence of this universe; in your opinion?
