Show Conclusion

"A sound explanation may exist for the explosive birth of our Universe; but if it does, science cannot find out what the explanation is. The scientist's pursuit of the past ends in the moment of creation. This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth... At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation. For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries." -- Robert Jastrow1

One must wonder what causes so many brilliant minds to go to the incredible lengths they do to deny a Supreme Creator. It takes a far greater faith to believe that we evolved from a piece of slime billions of years ago than to believe in a Creator. The mathematical odds that through some unknown process the earth came to be at a conveniently precise distance from the sun, at a precise angle, at a precise speed of rotation, with the precise mixture of elements in the atmosphere, and allow conditions such that amino acids beget proteins beget DNA/RNA beget billions of cells beget living organisms, is ABSOLUTELY ZERO! Highly regarded astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle and world-famous mathematician Chandra Wickramasinghe calculated the probability of a SINGLE CELL coming into existence to be 10 to the 40,000 power!2 (the number of electrons in the entire universe is estimated to be 10 to the 52nd power!).  Now consider that the the genetic information in a SINGLE CELL contains the equivalent of a library of about 4000 volumes3, and the human body has 30 TRILLION CELLS! Evidence for God is all around us, evidence for evolution is about as tenable as proof of the existence of Alice In Wonderland. Evolution simply remains "A Fairy Tale for Grownups".

"You might say this [modern cosmological discoveries] would make [scientists] more inclined to accept religious views on the origin of the world. But their materialism is so deeply imbued in them - and I would count myself also as affected by this feeling - that the general response has been simply to avoid considering the implications." -- Robert Jastrow1

Postscript: God has not left us in the dark, and does not expect us to have a "blind" faith.  Not only is his creation a testimony to his existence, but his Word through the Bible also provides overwhelming evidence that He is the one True God. I have documented some of this evidence in my Bible Evidences page, so if you get a chance, please check it out! "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom 1:20)."

Poor wolf, foiled again!  This aquatic lifestyle just doesn't seem to want to take hold.  Time to go back to the Designer and demand swimming and scuba lessons!

According to Carl Sagan, "The secrets of evolution are death and time - the deaths of enormous numbers of life forms that were imperfectly adapted to the environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations that were by accident adaptive, time for the slow accumulation of patterns of favorable mutations1."

Despite no real biological or fossil evidence2 of whales evolving from a land mammal, evolutionists still cling to imaginative fairy tales. The evolutionist Ernst Mayr once candidly wrote that "it is a considerable strain on one's credulity to assume that finely balanced systems such as certain sense organs (the eye of vertebrates, or the bird's feather) could be improved by random mutations3." Given the numerous finley balanced systems such as sonar, we agree that the evolutionist's credulity is quite strained!

2. Evolutionists often cite the long-tailed Ambulocetus as a transition between wolf and whale, hence a walking whale! This was based on the find being near a seashore, closer to sea than its assumed predecessor the Mesonyx (wolf)! The closer to sea, the more whale-like our wolf gets, until finally, POOF, he's a whale! What imagination! "If one practices hard enough you can believe six impossible things before breakfast" - Red Queen, Alice in Wonderland.

Hans Thewissen, a foremost "expert" on whale "evolution", later discovered fossils that in his words "weaken the link between whales and the mesonychians, which was primarily based on similarities in the teeth". (New Views of the Origins of Mammals, Science, Aug 7, '98, p775). Maybe next they'll tell us it was a moose that ventured into the water and eventually became a whale! Update: Turns out the hippo is the preferred actor in this fairytale.

OK, this isn't a whale, but this wolf-like creature is supposedly the whale's great, great, great, great, ... great granddaddy! The evolutionist must make this leap of faith because the whale is a mammal. Evolutionists believe that certain fish a long time ago learned to walk out of the water and eventually evolved into mammals. Since there are mammals such as whales in the water, they were forced to postulate that a few of the land mammals became homesick and returned to the water and became whales! Wow!

The whale has many incredibly complex mechanisms that makes it vastly different than land-dwelling mammals. For example, whales have a huge chamber of sperm oil that allows adjustment of buoyancy at different depths, and are equipped with features that allow them to withstand the enormous amount of pressure they encounter at great depths. Their eyes have a far higher refractive index to allow them to see in water, and their ears can pick up airborne sound waves under high pressure. Whales also possess very complex sonar capability.

So how did an alleged wolf-like whale ancestor begin this mind-boggling transition to whale? What prompted him to "dive in"? The following illustrates what the first saga of this adventure must have looked like!

Yet another evolutionist fantasy that just won't fly!

 The whole idea that an arm could evolve into a wing is patently absurd, since the arm would become completely useless and a hindrance long before it could possibly become a functional wing. Even the leading evolutionist Stephen J. Gould recognizes evolution by gradual changes (neo-Darwinism) as a pipe-dream: "Of what possible use are the imperfect incipient stages of useful structures? What good is half a jaw or half a wing?"1

1. Stephen Jay Gould, "The Return of Hopeful Monsters", Natural History, Vol 86, June-July 1977, pg 23. Gould substitutes the fairy tale of neo-Darwinism with his own fairy tale, which he calls punctuated equilibrium - evolution in rapid bursts in isolated populations. Gould does this to accommodate 1) the half-a-wing problem, 2) the utter lack of transitional fossils in the fossil record, and most importantly 3) his atheistic world view. It is apropos that the evidence for Gould's fairy tale of punctuated equilibrium appears to be based on lack of evidence (in the fossil record)!

That fly sure looks tasty! Maybe if I too could fly, I could catch it and eat it, then I would be able to survive as a species!

Evolution of Flight

Evolution of Flight

There is nothing quite like the sight of an evolutionist squirming and tugging at his collar after being asked to explain how flight "evolved"! Like all tenets of mud-to-man evolution, you'll get plenty of "may have's", "could have's", and "uh's" but no facts or credible evidence. The reason is simple - there is no evidence of how this amazing process occurred!1.

Presently the general consensus among evolutionists is that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs. This hypothesis has proven so weak, though, that it has long come under serious scrutiny from within the secular evolutionist scientific community2. With the dinosaur-to-bird hypothesis on the verge of extinction, what will our evolutionist story-tellers dream up next?

Well, maybe I can help. Let's use as an example a squirrel-like creature. This poor creature has found himself on the brink of starvation due to population stress and other factors. So what's a squirrel to do?  Following is an account of the first flight of the great flying squirrel ancestor Willie Wright (indeed I have heard on more than one occasion the following argument from some of the more mentally challenged evolutionists).

ARRO14E1


1. The fossil record certainly doesn't help the evolutionist's position. Considering the quantity of avian (bird) and especially bat fossils that have been unearthed, if evolution were true there should be hundreds of thousands of examples of transitional forms demonstrating a gradual limb-to-wing development over time. But there are none!  Instead, birds and bats appear fully formed in the fossil record, as would be expected if creation were true.  Indeed, the oldest fossil bat (called Icaronycteris by long-winded evolutionists) is supposedly 50 million years old, yet is indistinguishable from a modern bat! (see Glenn Jepson, Science 154:1333-1339, 1966). Additionally, both non-flying and flying insects are found in the fossil record, without a trace of intermediate insects in the process of obtaining the ability to fly. Where are the ancestors to the flying insects, and where are the intermediate steps? The answer is simple - they don't exist because evolution is a fairy tale!

2. Several studies reported in Science magazine exposed the dinosaur-to-bird hypothesis for what it is - bunk! One study questioned how a dinosaur that breathes using a diaphragm could evolve over time into a bird that breathes using a vastly different abdominal air sac mechanism. Another study demonstrated structural differences in the hands of dinosaurs and birds that is completely inconsistent with what would be expected if the therapod dinosaur was the bird's ancestor. For more details, see the point-counterpoint Science magazine online article, Counting the Fingers of Birds and Dinosaurs.

That's right! If you haven't heard the story before, additional fossil fragments identified the tooth as coming from a pig (or peccary)! Creationists like to point out that this is a case where the pig made a monkey out of the secular scientist!

Unfortunately, we have been force fed many similar monkey-man fairy tales over the last 100 years. Many of these fables have been discredited by even secular evolutionist scientists, yet they still pervade our media and education system. If you are one of those who have been brainwashed by a scientific dogma fueled more by humanist naturalism than objective evidence, I highly recommend you consider reading the book Bones of Contention by Marvin Lubenow, the most exhaustive study of supposed ape-man fossils I have come across.

"The Hesperopithecus tooth is like the still, small voice. Its sound is by no means easy to hear... This little tooth speaks volumes of truth, in that it affords evidence of man's descent from apes." - Professor Osborn (quoted not long before having to order the day's lunch special of crow).
