Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

3) this single ancestor 'mutated' by 'random chance', impelled by 'enviornmental conditions' and 'striving' or 'natural selection' to produce for example, a 100 Trillion cell human.

Indeed in the Darwinian world view, the complexity of Amazon could certainly arise in structured, ordered brilliance and cogency, from random mutations of the abacus. No design, no information, no software, no architecture is needed. Just deep time and luck. This view is unlikely to impress current stock holders, or informed consumers.
Ashton: “This failure of evolution theory to be able to explain the source of biological information [makes it]....a 'wish' of science, a fanciful hope if the light of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that some a mechanical process to describe how life arose will be discovered.”
Evolution is not science. It is a myth looking for facts. A fairy tale looking for the wicked witch of creation or the ugly frog of naturalism to kiss the princess and reveal himself as the prince of life. It is funded by the state which has every incentive imaginable to elevate the mechanistic, devalue the human, and impose its own theology – conformity – upon the bewildered mass. Take away the $40 billion in annual state funding of this cult, and the real science would absolutely demolish it .
