16. About point "b"
It's not true.

http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2008/04/still_just_a...

And further, while point "a" is true, it is not considered in the proper context. Life has existed on this planet for over three billion years. That's a lot of mutations. And while they are mostly bad, some are good. The good ones survive. That's natural selection.
