If evolution is true, all of nature must be explicable in terms of environmental pressures. But nature abounds with intricate and unexplained variety that has nothing to do with the environment. There are traits and features everywhere that seem to have no function, let alone exist because nature demanded (selected) them. Nowhere can there be found a detailed and cogent explanation, complete with all incremental steps, for any of what follows.
- Color—If evolution is a logical sort of thing, then everything must be explained by it with no contradictions. But astounding camouflage and mimicry throughout the animal kingdom exist side by side with creatures that survive just as well without such features. Why would nature go to the bother? Further, if nature has the ability to make ornate coloration in a creature, why not go all the way? For example, the Scarlet KingSnake supposedly evolved to look like the venomous Coral Snake.
