Response Article
This article (Instincts are too complex to have evolved (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CB401:

Instincts are too complex to have evolved. Scientists have no way of explaining complex instincts, such as migrations and nest building.


  • Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, 1985. Life--How Did It Get Here? Brooklyn, NY, pp. 160-167.

CreationWiki response:

As worded this claim is problematic, but then again Talk Origins cites the worst possible source. It is agreed that some instincts are simple and basic enough that once you have a living cell they are probably inevitable, but more complex instincts run afoul of Information theory and Statistical Thermodynamics.
