Do Naturalists Consider Chance the Singular Cause of Evolution?

In a word—no! The more sophisticated naturalists readily admit that the chance-alone hypothesis is at best far-fetched. Thus, they posit that natural selection* or some other unintelligent nonrandom mechanism is involved in the process. This, however, hardly limits the liabilities of the evolutionary hypothesis. First, it should be noted that there is no evidence for […]

What Is the Cambrian Explosion?

The Cambrian Explosion* is biology’s version of the Big Bang. Just as cosmology’s Big Bang undid the dogma of an eternal universe, biology’s Big Bang uprooted Darwin’s Tree of Life. First, if all of geological history were compressed into a twenty-four-hour clock, most of the distinct animal forms the world has ever known would appear […]

Can Aliens Account for the Origin of Life?

While panspermia is dispensed in different varieties, the basic notion is that life came to earth via aliens (directed) or meteorites (undirected). No less an authority than Darwinist Richard Dawkins considers the notion “an intriguing possibility.” In reality, panspermia—literally, “seeds everywhere”—does little to solve the naturalistic conundrum concerning the origin of life. First, while Dawkins […]

Did God Use Evolution As His Method of Creation?

Under the banner of “theistic evolution,” a growing number of Christians maintain that God used evolution as his method for creation. This, in my estimation, is the worst of all possibilities. It is one thing to believe in evolution; it is quite another to blame God for it. First, the biblical account of creation specifically […]

Is It Possible for a Protein Molecule to Come into Existence by Chance?

Evolutionary theory concerning how the first organized form of primitive life evolved hardly corresponds to reality. First, there is not the slightest evidence for an evolutionary sequence among the unimaginably varied cells existing on our planet. Furthermore, no living system can rightly be called primitive with respect to any other. Consider, for example, that life […]

Are Ape-Men Fictions, Frauds, and Fantasies?

As has been well said, there is no business like bone business. Pithecanthropus erectus, Piltdown man, and Peking man are prime exemplars. First and perhaps best known among the ape-men icons is Pithecanthropus erectus. What is not as well known is that this fictional transitional form* between apes and humans is based on nothing more […]

Did God Create Inherently Flawed Eyes?

Darwin used the human eye to illustrate “organs of extreme perfection and complication.” To neo-Darwinists*, however, the human eye is a case of ill-designed optics. So what gives? First, while evolutionists believe the verted retina in invertebrates (e.g., squids) is superior to the inverted retina in vertebrates (e.g., humans), precisely the opposite is true. As […]

Is There a Biblical Distinction Between Dinosaurs and Dragons?

Young-earth creationists* often argue that the Bible is full of references to dinosaurs. Nineteenth-century English paleontologist Sir Richard Owen did not coin the word dinosaur (“terrible lizard”) until 1841, thus the King James Version erroneously substituted the word dragon for dinosaur. Had the word been coined prior to 1611, passages such as Isaiah 27:1 and […]

Do Recently Discovered T. Rex Bones Point to a Young Earth?

The Internet is awash with evidence that scientists have found “unfossilized” T. rex bones replete with “fresh blood cells and hemoglobin.” Thus, we now have “powerful testimony against the whole idea of dinosaurs living millions of years ago.” Or do we? First, the scientists who conducted the research never claimed to have found either fresh […]

Could Carnivores and Catastrophes Have Existed Prior to the Fall*?

The sharpest point of contention between young- and old-earth creationists is death before Adam. Young-earth creationists* maintain that all death—including animal death—is a function of the fall. Old-earth creationists* believe that carnivorous creatures and natural catastrophes existed prior to the sin of Adam as part and parcel of God’s “very good” creation. Perhaps this rift […]
