Arguing with those who reject scientific evidence can be like arguing about football; just as angry and passionate, but the goalposts keep moving, and one team doesn't exist.
Debating With Evolution Deniers is Just Like This

Almost spot on ... apart from the greatest team in Manchester being United of course - everyone knows it's City !!!
He certainly takes the long way round to make his point. The two following quotes are short and to the point:
George Wald does a terrible job of stimulating any thought with that hopeless summary. He actually done himself a massive disservice by speaking that dribble, at least to me. Even a stupid person can benefit from keeping his mouth shut sometimes... this was one of those times from old George.
"A recurring theme in antievolution literature is that if science cannot account for the origin of life, evolution is false, and that "spontaneous generation" was disproven, so therefore evolution is false. This syllogism fails, because evolution (that is, common descent and transmutation of species) occurs whether or not life arose by chance, law or design, but there is another more insidious mistake here. It is not true that "spontaneous generation" has been ruled out in all cases by science; the claims disproven were more restricted than that...."
You don't like George's quote. Try Henri's quote. To demonstrate, read this article:
Scientist needs to decipher and isolate DNA and gene sequences with algorithms, meaning DNA was constructed by means of algorithms. As far as I know, algorithms fall under the general heading Mathematics.
