Michael Behe Has Again Proven Evolution is Impossible
We should note that Behe believes in an old earth and common descent. He is not a Biblical creationist.
It has been known, in general, that "nearly all" mutations are detrimental. I put "nearly all" in quotes because, to date, no one has observed a mutation that is not detrimental, with possibly one or two obscure mutations. So, for purposes of discussion, all mutations are detrimental.
That does not mean that a mutation is not beneficial. There can be a short-term benefit that helps the organism, but overall the organism has lost information and is less fit. In his book one of the examples Behe uses is that of sickle cell anemia. The benefit is that it provides immunity to malaria. The drawback is that the DNA has been seriously damaged with the following effects (quoted from the Mayo Clinic web site):
Signs and symptoms of sickle cell anemia, which vary from person to person and change over time, include:
- Anemia. Sickle cells break apart easily and die, leaving you without enough red blood cells.
- Your body can't get the oxygen it needs, causing fatigue
- Periodic episodes of pain, called crises, including chronic pain resulting from bone and joint damage
- Painful swelling of hands and feet
- Frequent infections
- Delayed growth
- Vision problems
- Acute Chest Syndrome
- Pulmonary hypertension
- Organ damage
- Leg ulcers
The above is quoted from: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sickle-cell-anemia/symptoms-causes/syc-20355876
In his book Behe comprehensively lays out the biochemical proof that mutations degrade the organism (defined as a loss of information at a minimum) and over time lead, not to an improved organism, but a dead, extinct organism. In other words, the process we call evolution (the General Theory of Evolution), does not exist. Evolution never happened and never could happen. We are devolving (going downhill). Behe' biochemical science is good, but what is missing is a credible explanation that accounts for the diversity of life and all that we observe. We were designed and created perfect by God, and through our sin all life has been damaged and is now degrading. That's what the Bible says, and that is exactly what we observe.
God created us, and we will be accountable to Him.

THE ANSWER IS...
Jesus does not promise to take away all your troubles. He promises those will get worse. But, Jesus does promise to free you from worry and anxiety.
How does that work?
The Bible says, Be anxious for nothing... (Philippians 4:6) Why? When you trust Jesus, no matter what happens in this life, you will spend eternity with God... and that is VERY GOOD.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. - Matthew 10:28
Who can destroy your body and soul? Only God. (Not Satan) However, God does not send you to hell, you do that when you disobey God. However, God created hell, aka. the lake of fire, the second death (Revelation 21:8).
You can be rescued. Jesus Christ (God) died on the cross to save all those who believe in Him... all those who trust Him to pay their just penalty for disobeying God.
Trust in Jesus and you'll know your time on earth is like a wisp of smoke that vanishes in the wind. Trust that Jesus did pay YOUR penalty for sin. Repent. Turn away from disobeying God.
Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31) and there will no longer be a reason for worry or anxiety.
