A Fairy Tale for Adults
Evolutionist Richard Dawkins
"If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident, too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents - the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e. of materialism and astronomy - are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset."

Contradictions Between Evolution and the Bible
1. Life in ocean before plants.
1. Land plants before life in ocean.
See the incredible complexity of
a mere bacterial flagellum - which shows the
absurdity of the idea of life coming into existence by chance.
Theistic evolutionists such as Dr. Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe - desperate for support - appeal to the Bible to show that evolution is true. Observe how they twist the Scriptures and earn the contempt of both creationists and secular humanists.
Evidence of a young world using population growth.
A commonly used item which evolutionists point to in order to support evolution is the "horse series", which is the alleged transition of the horse from a small horse-like creature to the modern horse. Their diagram shows the horse gradually and smoothly evolving from this small creature to the full-grown modern horse. However, there are a number of problems with this model:
A complete series of horse fossils in the correct evolutionary order does not exist anywhere in the world.
The fossil horse series starts in North America, jumps to Europe, and then back again to America.
The sequence from small, many-toed forms to large, one-toed forms is completely absent in the fossil record.
There are no evolutionary intermediates between each of the horses. Each appears abruptly in the fossil record.
Two modern-day horses have been found in the same fossil stratum as Eohippus! This fact is fatal to the concept of horse evolution, since horses were already horses before their supposed evolution.
The horses supposed to be the earliest are found at the top of the fossil strata.
The number of ribs and lumbar vertebrae differ among the various "horses," decreasing, then increasing again.
Horses are supposed to have grown in size progressively over millions of years. Yet today we find horses of widely varying sizes.
Bird or Reptile?
postulate that Archaeopteryx - an extinct bird found in the fossil rccord
in Germany in the 1800's - was an intermediate link between reptiles and
birds. It had teeth and it had feathers, as well as having claws on its
wings. Hence it was an intermediate form, reasons the evolutionist.
Birds have feathers and reptiles have scales. These structures are vastly different, and Archaeopteryx had feathers as evidenced by the fossils. Birds are warm-blooded, not cold-blooded as reptiles. And just because it had claws on its wings doesn't mean it's an intermediate form - just an uncommon bird. Three birds living today have claws on their wings - the hoatzin in South America, the touraco of Africa, and the ostrich.
Archaeopteryx had teeth, which is unusual - yet what does this prove? That it is a transitional form? Hardly. Most birds do not have teeth, but some did (all such birds are now extinct). Most reptiles have teeth, but some do not.
Archaeopteryx also had fully-formed feathers. Where are the half-feathers\half-scales or half-wings\half-forelimbs which would be indicative of a true transition? Completely missing. Such a fossil has never been found.
Lastly, modern-day birds have also been found in the same rocks as Archaeopteryx. It couldn't have been the forerunner to anything, since true birds were already in existence when it was alive. Additionally, a fossil bird was recently uncovered which was dated 75 million years before Archaeopteryx! So, despite Archaeopteryx, evolution is still looking for the missing link between reptiles and birds.
happens when something is left to itself and not cared for? It runs down,
wears out, and falls apart. It becomes less ordered, not more ordered.
Science has a law for this tendency - the 2nd law of thermodynamics. However,
the evolutionary theory contradicts this universal tendency. It says that
things began as simple and became more complex and more ordered - completely
contrary to the observations around us.
Creationists, on the other hand, predict this tendency to decay. Everything was created by God in a moment in time, and we are gradually using up all the potential energy in the universe. There will come a time when all the available energy in the universe has been used up. The universe will then reach a state of "heat-death", which is a uniform temperature and no more energy sources. (The fact that we have not yet reached heat-death shows that the universe has not existed forever!) Evolution also says that the universe has always existed and was never created (which sounds suspiciously like a faith-system).
Evolutionists offer a number of objections to the quandry of thermodynamics - none of which can support their theory in the face of the 2nd law. Thermodynamics is yet more evidence that creation is the more reliable theory of origins.
Evolution and the Eye
"To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberation, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.....The belief that an organ as perfect as the eye could have formed by natural selection is more than enough to stagger anyone." (Flaws In The Theory Of Evolution, E. Shute, p. 468)
