If evolution is true, it does not explain the causal “for” of any evolved feature of living things. Thorns on plants and quills on porcupines? They each evolved for the purpose of protecting the organism from predators. Right? Wrong. One of the myths of evolutionary theory is that features of plants or animals evolved for a purpose. The myth popular among virtually everyone is that … Continue reading Myths of Evolution: The Tail Wagging the Dog
If evolution is true, then nature learned to code. If one were to write a book entitled, On the Origin of Codes, what might be set forth in the book as an explanation? We ask the question because scientists today understand something about human beings—indeed, all of life—that Darwin didn’t. Inside of us extremely complex physical codes execute detailed instructions with the information to build … Continue reading On the Origin of Codes
Science Has Left the Kiddie Pool If evolution is true, then the theory needs serious reform to keep up with modern science. Evolution, once the deep waters of science, now sits as a kiddie pool, a place of safety for children fearful of what they may find in deeper waters. Hopelessly clinging to Darwin’s 19th-century ideas in light of the vast pool of 21st-century evidence, … Continue reading Science Has Left the Kiddie Pool
If evolution is true, then both genetic variation (descent with modification) and natural selection must explain the existence of every living organism. Evolution, if true, operates without guidance or purpose in nature like a wound-up clock without numbers. The “tick” of genetic variation and the “tock” of natural selection operate unattended like clockwork to produce all of the earth’s current living things. Tick and tock. … Continue reading The Clockwork of Evolution
At Creation Reformation we have shown that natural selection does nothing for all adapted and fit organisms that arrive on earth due to descent with modification (e.g., genetic mutations). Nothing. In a post that has received many thousands of hits, The Natural Selection Paradox, we have shown that natural selection explains nothing about human origins or existence. And despite an invitation, we have received zero … Continue reading Answers in Genesis on Natural Selection: Not Helpful
If evolution is true, then every living thing today is directly related to every other living thing. And no one has any real significance. Evolutionists make a big deal every time someone suggests that we are descended from apes. The mistake, we are told, is that we do not descend from apes, but we have a common ancestor with modern apes. Does that clarification help? … Continue reading We are All Cousins if Evolution is True

If evolution is true, there is no meaningful good news in the world. Many moderns believe themselves clever when posturing as enlightened functional atheists. A functional atheist is one who, perhaps not denying the existence of God, lives and thinks as one who does. All atheists are, of course, functional atheists. But, ironically, many professing Christians are also functional atheists. One evidence of a functional … Continue reading Evolution: Old News or Good News?
If evolution is true, you descended from the first atoms of the Big Bang, not the first atoms of Adam. Most people know the broad contours of the Biblical creation story in which God creates the first “alive” things able to reproduce their kind. In this account God exists and creates the first human being and names him Adam. God created Adam—created whole in one … Continue reading Human Beings: From Atoms, or Adam?
If evolution is true, then as an explanation for human existence it must operate at the level of individual organisms, not just among populations. One of the more subtle intellectual dodges employed by evolutionists today involves utilizing the language of “populations” with grand explanations of “differential reproduction,” and “gene flow” and “genetic drift.” The ideas attached to these terms are helpful for some purposes, but … Continue reading The ‘Evolution of Populations’ Myth
