evolution by natural selection? )( Organisms exhibit astounding complexity that could not have been created by chance alone

E Evolution cannot be proved because it cannot be observed 6. All known organisms transcribe genetic (nucleotide) information to protein molecules
via the same genetic code. This ﬁnding strongly supports the hypothesis that A. there's only one possible way to encode information in a macromolecule.
