Creation Evolution Controversy – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you want to start an argument anywhere on the Internet, just bring up the creation/evolution debate.  There are very few topics that get people all over the world more riled up.In nations all over the world today there is a huge debate over whether “creation” (or “intelligent design”) should be taught alongside the theory of evolution in public schools.  But should there even be a debate? What does the scientific evidence say?

After all, shouldn’t the actual science be more important than what people would like to believe?

Shouldn’t logic, reason and hard facts trump any personal agenda that anyone is trying to push?

So let’s look at what the science actually shows us…..

“I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.”

-Malcolm Muggeridge (world famous journalist and philosopher), Pascal Lectures, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Evolution

The following are three key points which clearly show that creation science clearly fits the scientific evidence better than Darwinian evolution:

1) If evolution was true, we should have millions upon millions of transitional fossils.

But the reality that we find in the fossil record is this:

“I fully agree with your comments on the lack of direct illustration of evolutionary transitions in my book. If I knew of any, fossil or living, I would certainly have included them. You suggest that an artist should be used to visualise such transformations, but where would he get the information from? I could not, honestly, provide it, and if I were to leave it to artistic license, would that not mislead the reader?”

-Dr. Colin Patterson, senior paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History (and a hardcore evolutionist), in a letter to Luther Sunderland, April 10, 1979.

In response to this point, Darwinists will usually trot out the same handful of incredibly weak, totally laughable examples of “transitional forms” that have been debunked and discredited time after time (for example Archaeopteryx):

http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v1/i1/archaeopteryx.asp

However, the truth is that if Darwinian evolution was true there would be millions upon millions of very clear transitional fossils in the fossil record.

But their “theory” has a huge problem.

The fossils are simply not there.

“Lastly, looking not to any one time, but to all time, if my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties, linking closely together all the species of the same group, must assuredly have existed. But, as by this theory, innumerable transitional forms must have existed, why do we not find them embedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth?”

-Charles Darwin

“In fact, the fossil record does not convincingly document a single transition from one species to another.”

-Evolutionist Stephen M. Stanley, Johns Hopkins University

So, what the science actually reveals is that the “missing links” have always been missing and they always will be missing because they were never there in the first place.

2) If evolution was true, then we should see an “evolutionary tree” in the fossil record, with complex life developing very slowly from earlier, less complex forms. Instead, what we do see is the sudden appearance of fully formed and fully functional complex life in the fossil record (evolutionists refer to this as the Cambrian explosion):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambrian_explosion

The truth is that complex life first appeared on the earth in a very sudden, explosive manner.

“The earliest and most primitive members of every order already have the basic ordinal characters, and in no case is an approximately continuous series from one order to another known. In most cases the break is so sharp and the gap so large that the origin of the order is speculative and much disputed”

-Paleontologist George Gaylord

The reality is that complex life appears in the fossil record fully formed and fully functional.

There is no denying it.

There is no getting around it.

Now which worldview does the sudden appearance of fully formed, fully functional complex life in the fossil record support?

Creation science of course.

3) In addition, evolutionists are at a complete and total loss for how to explain the creation of new information that is required for one animal to turn into another animal.

As one creation scientist explained:

“The key issue is the type of change required — to change microbes into men requires changes that increase the genetic information content, from over half a million DNA ‘letters’ of even the ‘simplest’ self-reproducing organism to three billion ‘letters’ (stored in each human cell nucleus).”

Evolutionists cannot show us a single example of functional new information being added to any creature.

Evolutionist Stephen J. Gould, Harvard:

“Every paleontologist knows that most species don’t change. That’s bothersome….brings terrible distress. ….They may get a little bigger or bumpier but they remain the same species and that’s not due to imperfection and gaps but stasis. And yet this remarkable stasis has generally been ignored as no data. If they don’t change, its not evolution so you don’t talk about it.” Lecture at Hobart & William Smith College, 14/2/1980.

Christians, when you are in a debate with a Darwinist, the following is an outstanding question to ask of them:

“Do you have enough blind faith to believe that life just popped into existence from nonlife, and that such life just happened to have the ability to take in the nourishment it needed, to expel waste, and to reproduce itself, all the while having everything it needed to survive in the environment in which it suddenly found itself?”

Here are four questions which I would love to hear evolutionists try to answer:

1) Which evolved first: blood, the heart, or the blood vessels for the blood to travel through?

2) Which evolved first: the mouth, the stomach, the digestive fluids, or the ability to poop?

3) Which evolved first: the windpipe, the lungs, or the ability of the body to use oxygen?

4) Which evolved first: the bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply, or the muscles to move the bones?

Conceivably, you could continue this exercise forever. The reality is that the body has a huge variety of incredibly complex systems which completely rely on other incredibly complex systems that cannot function on their own. Evolutionists just tend to completely ignore this bit of common sense.

In addition, we have a standing challenge for any evolutionists, skeptics or atheists to go and try to debunk these videos:

http://www.leestrobel.com/Creator.htm

If you can actually debunk those videos then you are better than any evolutionist we have ever met.

“Evolutionism is a fairy tale for grown-ups. This theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless.”

-Professor Louis Bounoure, past president of the Biological Society of Strassbourg, Director of the Strassbourg Zoological Museum, Director of Research at the French National Center of Scientific Research.

So do you still believe in the theory of evolution? Do you actually still believe that the science backs it up?

Feel free to post your opinion in the comments section below.  We are just after the truth, and hopefully that is what you are seeking as well.

Michael Snyder
Michael T. Snyder One of the most common questions I get asked is this: “Who are you?” Well, I would rather let the issues take center stage, but I don’t mind telling you a little bit about myself. My name is Michael and I am just a regular guy who is married to one of the most wonderful women in the world. I have an undergraduate degree in Commerce from the University of Virginia and I have a law degree from the University of Florida law school. I also have an LLM from the University of Florida law school. I once worked for some of the largest law firms in Washington D.C., but now I mostly focus on trying to make a difference in the world. I am the author of all of the articles on the Economic Collapse Blog, and End of The American Dream Blog. I put a lot of work into these articles, and it means a lot that so many people out there enjoy them. I do not belong to a political party. In fact, I rip both the Democrats and the Republicans pretty good. I am a very strong Christian, but I believe that most of the churches in America have gotten way off track. I believe that God is raising up Christians that will do things the way that the first Christians did things. I am also a writer, a speaker and an activist. Someone once told me that life is like a coin – you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once. I believe that this is going to be one of the most dramatic eras in all of human history and I want my life to have meaning and purpose. Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, one of the most important things to me is love. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another. The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love. Follow Me I really enjoy being able to connect with my readers. If you are on Twitter, you can connect with me here: http://twitter.com/Revelation1217 You can also find other articles by me on the following websites… The Most Important News: http://themostimportantnews.com/ End Of The American Dream: http://endoftheamericandream.com/ The Truth: http://thetruthwins.com/ The Most Important Thing There are many people that are curious about what I believe and about what I stand for. Well, I am a Bible-believing Christian. Unfortunately, most people do not know what Biblical Christianity is these days. For a detailed explanation of what I believe, please see my statement of faith. Some of you may not even know about the God of the Bible or that He sent his Son to die on the cross for your sins. The truth is that the God of the universe loves you very much and He wants to have a relationship with you. Unfortunately, humanity has rebelled against God. The Scriptures tell us that we all have violated God’s laws and that we all have sinned against Him. We stand guilty before the judge of the universe. God could not ignore our sins, but He still wanted to have a relationship with us. So God sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay the price for the sins of all humanity. If you will repent of your sins and invite Jesus Christ into your life right now, your sins will be forgiven and you will be given eternal life. For a much more detailed explanation of how to become a Christian, please see the following article that we put together on this topic….What Does The Bible Say About Salvation? Michael
  • Your questions are a lot easier than you think they are. And I have only the most casual layman’s understanding of biology.

    1) Which evolved first: blood, the heart, or the blood vessels for the blood to travel through?

    Blood. Single-celled organisms are small enough that nutrients can circulate via Brownian motion. Given that need it’s easy to imagine organelles within the cell that evolve to transport nutrients, just like blood does, without a heart to push them, or vessels to move them through.

    2) Which evolved first: the mouth, the stomach, the digestive fluids, or the ability to poop?

    Pooping. That one is not a guess. Waste elimination is something all life does. Even plants, though their waste is oxygen. Do plants have mouths, stomachs or digestive fluids? Do bacteria? Please, for crying out loud, think for five seconds minimum before putting these up as impossibly vexing.

    3) Which evolved first: the windpipe, the lungs, or the ability of the body to use oxygen?

    Insects don’t have lungs. They have valves and muscles that are a little bit lung-like, if you squint, but smaller insects don’t even have that. But they still use oxygen, by passive circulation through pipes. Go smaller and you can eliminate the pipes too.

    4) Which evolved first: the bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply, or the muscles to move the bones?

    Recent 18th century discoveries suggest there exists life smaller than the scale at which all these questions could be considered even momentarily vexing. Lots of living things get by without bones, ligaments or tendons. It’s either blood supply or muscles, depending on your definition of muscle.

    Finally, I must handle your question about whether I have enough blind faith to believe that life popped into existence from non-life. You clearly have it in spades, since “popped into existence” and “created by God” are exactly the same thing.

    No, I don’t have that kind of faith, or any other kind. Evolution has nothing to say about the origin of life, only the origin of species — you know, the title of the actual book?

    But I am sanguine about not knowing the answer to every question until the evidence is in. I’m sure not going to look it up in a 1400-year-old book. One day we’ll figure it out, and when we do you’ll still stick to the book, you’ll just make your list one easy question shorter.

  • yo

    great article!

    puts it so simply a caveman could understand it! lol

  • Tyao

    Dave Brown, you sure do have faith that one day we will find the answer to these questions. You have faith that the Bible will be disproved.

  • Mark

    Dave, heard of “bait and switch”? Well, that’s what your honest (but misled) opinion gives us. By this I mean that you start talking about one thing and then jump to another so that the “audience” is sucked in to believing. For example. evolutionists start talking about micro evolution (ie. Darwin’s Finches, wolves to dogs) which is called speciation which nobody denies exists, but then in the same breath they mention molecules to man evolution (macro). That is being dishonest and unaccountable. In the first case, absolutely no new “information” was created, only loss of genetic data. Molecules to man evolution requires an increase in information according to even Darwinian theory. The latter has never never never been observed even given falsified environments and deliberate scientific injection of circumstances.

    So basically, what I am saying is that talking of an insect that can breathe without complex lungs and then jumping to the breathing apparatus of more complex organisms mentioned in the article are bait-and-switch. No transition between the two has ever been observed to exist, ever! And it’s that very transition that is not possible because the definition and laws of Darwinism state that unless the next jump is advantageous, it would be naturally selected out. So having half formed unfunctioning organs floating around our body is bad. Everything would have had to appear immediately, aka “created”. The spirit of the article when asking the question, I believe implies that.

  • Koos

    Wocher, yon Daveness. Attempt to answer those questions by answering the questions, not going off topic. Apply the evolution to creatures in need of each mentioned part and then no-brain it out again.

  • Tristan Thompson

    Hi, I’m a biologist, I’m not going to discuss any of your points, but what I will say is that I can see why you haven’t talked to an evolutionary biologist that will shed some light on your unanswered questions. If you go on with angry rambling like this few people will want a discussion.

    What you are good at is pressing your point on others. Not evaluating evidence objectively. Evolution is no different to any other scientific theory in its approach, methods, results and conclusions.

    Please be cautious when you use the words ‘scientist’ and ‘scientific evidence’ when backing up your ideas as 99.9% of scientists do agree that the theory of evolution is sound. Of course there are holes to be filled but this is the same with all of science, scientists don’t claim to know everything! the great thing is these holes get smaller with time as you will see…

  • leah

    Thank you very much for this article. It really helped alot with my english paper. :).

  • David Robles

    I don’t think it’s fair to assume all which cannot be explained as a product of “god”. Example:

    During Galileo’s Research of gravity he discovered moons orbiting Jupiter. Thus with further research he realized that not all celestial bodies revolve around the earth as catholic belief. The church then Accused Galileo of witchcraft and heresy and forbid further research and Sentenced him to house arrest. The church then went on to forbid any teachings which did not align with religious views.

    Today we all know that the earth revolves around the sun and that only the moon revolves around the earth. But without sufficient evidence those who are blinded by religion fail to evaluate based on evidence and go on to attribute all that cannot be currently explained to “god” and look in disgust at any answers which do not align with their belief of “god”.

    The majority of scientific evidence points towards evolution. Although we may not have all the answers, we do have a good amount of evidence which points to this conclusion. Until there exists evidence that god is the reason for our existence then all we can do is use evidence we do have to make a conclusion. It is ignorant to assume that because we cannot explain things it is by default “god”.

  • Charles Rowland

    I’m so sorry that people like you exist, let alone exert influence over the world. Please educate yourself!

  • David Robles

    It seems you are confused. You are the one insulting others who do not agree with your beliefs mr. Rowland. “I’m so sorry that people like you exist”. You fail to contribute anything to the topic at hand and instead throw around insults and tell others to educate themselves without any information to establish a point otherwise. I feel sad, that those who disagree with evolution do nothing to provide scientific evidence to help people like me understand the opposing viewpoint. Before you comment please attempt to contribute to the article. Thank You.

    With Upmost Respect, David Robles
