Questions About Evolution
By: Steve Shirley
#1 Where are the transitional fossils?
Scientists have failed to come up with ANY fossils showing transition from one species to another. Each supposed missing link has been discredited after close examination. Why don't we see any transitions today i.e. half wing, half leg?
#2 Why is it that lower forms of animals are not evolving?
We have fossils of spiders, crickets, grasshoppers, dragonflies, cockroaches, etc... that are the same as their counterparts today. Fossils of bats are also the same as their modern counterparts.
#3 What about the 2nd law of thermodynamics?
This is a scientific principle, also called entropy, that states simply that things go from order to disorder or organization to disorganization. For example, living things die, wound up things unwind, a clean house becomes messy, etc... In order to become organized again, energy must be expended. For example, you must rewind the object or reclean your house. Evolution completely goes against this scientific law stating that things go from disorder to order and disorganization to organization i.e. mans beginnings went from a pool of slime to the complex machine we are now.
#4 Why have several species thought to be extinct millions of years ago suddenly been found?
The coelacanth, a deep sea fish thought to be extinct 70 million years ago is suddenly being caught in the Indian Ocean. (Over 60 have been caught so far)
The Wollemi pine tree, thought to be extinct 90 million years ago, has suddenly been found in Sydney, Australia. (23 have been found)
#5 Why are millions of animals found buried or fossilized completely intact?
Think about what happens when an animal dies. One of two things in almost every case. Either they are torn apart and eaten by predators or they decay. However, millions of animals have been uncovered with bodies showing no decay and completely whole. Why has this occurred? The evidence clearly points to a rapid, sudden burial of millions of creatures instantly. Examples of this include mammoths found with food still in their mouth, a whale found buried in a vertical position, and fossils such as a fish eating another fish.
#6 Have you studied population statistics?
The Earth's population grows at about 2% per year. This has been fairly constant for as long as we can trace records back. Projecting a 2% rate of growth back over time takes us to a beginning population on the Earth that is consistent with a young Earth (around 10,000 years). If people had populated the Earth for say 100,000 years, a conservative estimate by evolutionists, the number of people on this planet would be staggering, if we project this 2% rate back 100,000 years. It is a number beyond my ability to calculate. Maybe you can do the math.
#7 Have you ever looked at what happened with Mt. St. Helens?
When this volcano exploded in Washington on June 12, 1980 some amazing things happened. In a VERY short period of time, two canyons, a river system, and hundreds of layers of stratification were formed. It showed scientists convincing proof that huge changes could occur very quickly instead of over millions of years, as was previously believed, when a sudden cataclysmic event (such as a flood) occurs.
#8 Have you ever looked at what the moon shows us?
When NASA first sent people to the moon, their greatest concern, as confirmed by Neil Armstrong on national t.v., was the dust on the moon. Evolutionist scientists had calculated, based on a 5 billion year old Earth, that there could be so much dust on the moon that the ship might completely sink upon landing. Creationist scientists, on the other hand, correctly calculated an inch or two of dust, based on a young Earth.
There is another thing the moon has shown us as well. The moon moves a few inches farther from the Earth each year. This has been a constant rate over the time we have measured it. If we project a 2 inch rate of movement away from the Earth to say 1 billion years (evolutionists say the earth is app. 6 billion years old) the moon would be 31,565 miles closer to the earth. The result of this would be most or all of the Earth would be underwater.
#9 Why do we find logs, and even skeletons, in sedimentary layers, in upright positions, traversing what an evolutionist would say is millions of years of stratification?
#10 How do we find seashells and the remains of ocean dwelling animals at the tops of mountains including the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest?
