Inspiration for this article
This article was actually inspired by a smart-alecky pro-evolution propogandist, who has puplished quite a lot on the internet. His topics seem to be largely centered around poking fun at people who believe in a literal 6 day creation. He has a web page that is called "Things Creationists Hate". It was really creative, although his points are a little sloppy, and really don't represent what creationists really believe. I had considered doing an article which exposed the weaknesses of his various arguments, but decided that doing a similiar article to his might actually be more fun. One of the things creationists "hate" was "1,000 Pennies". Here is what he wrote:

1,000 Pennies
This is an excerpt from an ANTI-CREATIONIST website.
Ten bucks worth of pennies is all it takes to show how fast a little selection can turn randomness into perfect order. (For fans of those tiny Chick Publications comic books: This is an analogy. If you don't know what that is, stop now.)

Randomly scatter the pennies on a table. Apply a little "natural" selection (after all, you're not supernatural): pull out all that come up heads and set them aside (they will "survive"). Flip all the tails again. Save the heads. Repeat until "perfect order" is achieved.

How many "generations" will that take to "evolve" the race of pennies from evenly mixed to pure heads? Nine or ten, with average luck. Make it slightly more realistic by giving the "favored race" (Darwin's term) just a slight survival advantage: save just two or three each time. You can still have all heads in less than an hour. All it takes is "random replicators" (Dawkins's term) and a bit of selection pressure. The point is, a random system can become very organized, very fast, with just a little selection pressure.

BUT, let's take a closer look:
The most glaringly obvious problem with this is that his natural selector is YOU. You are an intelligent agent, purposefully, willingly, removing all of the "heads" coins. So of course, you would end up with all "tails" . But in evolutionary theory, you have to use RANDOM, THOUGHTLESS mutation, coupled with NATURAL SELECTION. Now, natural selection would have to CHOOSE the "heads" coins. The problem is then, that the real likelyhood of getting even ONE coin to come up as a "heads" coin in the first place would be low, because in the God created order, animals give birth to their own kind, without mutation. So what you would have is 1,000 pennies coming up "tails".

Now, supposing one DOES come up as "heads". Well, according to evolution, that coin is now selected (if for example you are going to show an evolution from all "tails" coins to "heads" coins). But in the real world, it is NOT selected because it has a mutation, which according to all odds, is negative, or at best case, just passive (meaning it has no positive or negative effect). So, when the coins are tossed again, what do you get? All "tails" again.

But the real problem with this supposed "metaphor" which demonstrates evolution, is that it is fundementally flawed. Offspring in the animal kingdom is not "random" or a tossing of coins or rolling of dice. It is one animal giving birth to another (or sometimes, quite a few!). And furthermore, it is governed by a set of checks and balances, set in place by an intelligent creator, which actually HALT evolution from one kind of animal to another. Firstly, mutations are rare. Secondly, mutations are usually harmful and result in a loss of genetic information. Distorted or mutant animals are less likely to leave large offspring, have shortened life expectancy, and are less likely to be desired by a mate.

100 Things Evolutionists Hate

  1. The Bible The Book of Books. Why won't it go away? Don't people realize it is just a bunch of mythology? Why don't they get it?! Well... perhaps they do get it. Maybe that is why it has stood the test of time.

  2. God To believe in God is to believe in a supreme being, capable of creating life from non-life. This possibility is rejected by "empirical science" without hesitation.

  3. Noah and The Ark
    The Noah's Ark story has been around a long time. It is a permanent fixture in the human conscience. You don't have to "explain" it to anyone. Not only that, but it is a global story. Flood legends have been found in nearly every cultural center the world over. They have several things in common. A God, wanted to punish a people who had gone astray, he sent a worldwide flood (not fire, not hail, not giant flesh eating monsters, it is always a "great flood") to wipe out the evil that was upon the earth. A few were saved, and they repopulated the earth. This story has been preserved in more than 300 such 'myths' of ancient peoples around the earth. And what is worse, a global flood would explain away many of the strange features of the earth, and the fossils. Good evolutionsts are quick to point out that it was a "local" flood. But why don't ancient peoples recall it that way?

  4. Natural Selection
    This process, used to support evolutionary theory, actually works against it. Organisms naturally select creatures that are healthy and similiar to themselves. This has a preservative effect on species, not an evolutionary one.

  5. The Fossil Record The fossils do not show a smooth gradiation from lower life to higher organisms. The reason we have the term "missing links" is because they are a fact of the fossil record. What we find buried in aqueous sediments are various animal "kinds". They are the same "kinds" we have today, with the exception of extinct kinds.

  6. Unconformities, Paraconformities These are geological terms which are used to notate locations around the earth where the geological strata are "out of order" according to the expected evolutionary pattern. For example, when the most basic of sea-life is found sitting comfortably on top of strata containing "more evolved" organisms.

  7. Living Fossils
    Creatures once thought extinct, that suddenly are found, alive and well. Yet oddly, made no appearance in the 'fossil record' for supposed millions of years! Now that is a disappearing act!

  8. Stasis
    It is one thing when you can find something in the fossils, say, a dinosaur and say, "see, that was a big, strange creature, and we don't have those anymore! We evolved!". But it is much more difficult when you find something that is said to be millions of years old and hasn't changed a bit. According to evolution, with enough time, species evolve. It just happens. Well, that is, except in those cases like the cockroach or the horseshoe crab, where it just doesn't.

  9. Laws of Nature
    If all is a cosmic accident, why do we have "laws of nature"? Or for that matter, structure or order of any kind? Why have gravity, etc.? What about laws of civilization, such as "do not kill" "do not lie". Why shouldn't we? If evolution is true than none of this would matter, and the world around us would be governed by chaos and accident.

  10. Honest Evolutionists
    The "great quotes" archives of the creationists are stuffed with statements made by frustrated evolutionists who fessed up to the weaknesses in the theory. You can bet that some of them wish they had kept their traps shut.

  11. Heart Mountain 'Thrust'

  12. Coelacanth
    While the Coelacanth fish was being paraded about in school textbooks as the fish that waddled onto the shore millions of years ago, it was being accidentally caught by local fishermen in Madagascar. The strange looking fish turned out to be... a fish. It didn't have lungs, as once believed, and studies of their habits in the wild, did not reveal any desire to leave their deep water lifestyle for land excursions. Yet another pillar of evolution falls down...

  13. Ancient Pottery
    Ancient pottery has been found that depicts all kinds of strange things. Well, if you call men fighting dinosaurs strange, that is. If man could have lived with dinosaurs, which went extinct 65 million years ago, that would be a problem if the pottery was only 4,000 years old.

  14. Myths
    Myths are an interesting thing. They are full of strange and ridiculous stories. But, strangely, there is a common thread among many stories told by ancient peoples. Among these commonalities are a creator God (or gods), a previous world, a worldwide flood catastrophe and a time of darkness. Is it a mere coincidence that so many cultures are in some way or another telling the same basic story? Click here for some of the Flood Myths

  15. The Chinese Language
    The ancient Chinese lanquage is one of the oldest still in use. It is interesting as well, because it is a pictographic text. That is, the characters actually are groupings of pictures which represent words or phrases. When looked at closely they tell a story. For example the word "boat" which is made up of the words "eight", "person" and "vessel". Noah's ark was the most memorable boat of all time, and according to the Bible had Noah, his wife, and three children, along with their wives. A total of 8. This may seem like a coincidence, at first, but there are many other examples!

  16. The Pyramids of Egypt
    The three main pyramids on the Giza Plateau in Egypt are believed by some scientists to be MUCH older than was once assumed, and are constructed with a much higher level of craftsmanship. Recently, scientists have learned that all three of them, as well as the famous Sphynx, show signs of severe water damage. But there hasn't been enough rain on the Giza Plateau to account for this in the last 4,500 years! If they are much older, then early 'primitive' man must have stood erect and got to work right away building precisely aligned, 15 million ton megoliths!

  17. Irreducible Complexity
    Micheal Behe, a noted authority on Biochemistry points out the obvious evolutionary problems at the micro level. This is where change would have to occur in Darwinistic evolution. Many highly organized cells are actually 'micro-machines' which carry out sophisticated functions in the organism. At the time that Darwin wrote the Origin of the Species, in 1800's scientists did not have any knowledge of intracellular complexity. The problem of 'Irreducible Complexity' is that if you were to remove any one part (as you would have to be able to show that the end product was a result of incremental additions) the entire mechanism would breakdown and the result to the cell would be disadvantageous or even catastrophic to the organism. (for instance if your blood would no longer clot).
    "Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, weighing less than 10-12 grams, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up altogether of one hundred thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world." (Emphasis added)
  18. Horseshoe Crabs
    These supposedly ancient sea creatures would be easier to explain away if they were extinct like the dinosaurs. Why? Because they are unchanged after 544 million years! Why did they rebel against the 'inevetible' powers of evolution? Because God designed them as Horseshoe Crabs.

  19. Sir Richard Owen
    This noteable scientist was the british comparative anatomist who coined the phrase "dinosaur". He also helped to establish the London Museum of Natural History. He lived at the same time as Charles Darwin, and was considered by Darwin as the highest in his field. He was also a creationist, who believed in God. But I thought all scientists agree with evolution?

  20. Evolution Approval Ratings
    According to a 1999 Gallup poll, some 68% would prefer that creationism was taught along side evolution in the classrooms, as opposed to 29% who preferred only evolution. The polling publishers went so far as to try and remove the sting of this fact, by saying that it wasn't so surprising when 'other factors' are considered, such as the education levels of those being polled. Yeah. We're just DUMB. Is that it? Haha! They just don't get it.

  21. Unborn Human Children
    By claiming that the unborn developing embryo was passing through an "evolutionary" stage where it "mimmicked" its past, Ernst Haeckel and others, convinced many people that this non-human stage was much more like a fish. Even tiny "slits" were pointed out to be gills, and proof of this fishlike stage. (They later turned out to be folds of skin, and not slits). This helped usher in the modern era of unborn infant slaughter. After all, it is really more like a fish than a person.

  22. Dark Skinned People
    Darwin, and many more of his followers have used evolutionary theory to justify mistreatment of the supposed "lower" races. This is appauling and unforgiveable. Darwin even forcasted that at some point white skinned peoples would wipe out the dark skinned (less evolved) people. This is utterly ridiculous. They didn't read that Darwin quote in my classroom.

  23. Hiroshima
    Scientists who are eager to establish evolution have been exposing organisms such as fruit flies to radiation for decades. This is supposed to produce evolutionary change. Well, Hiroshima should have been an evolutionary PARADISE creating all sorts of new life and favorable mutations! Sadly, it mainly caused death and deformity. Better luck will not be had next time.

  24. The Word "Theory"
    Evolutionists really hate this word. Afterall, after so much proof of evolution, so much scientific data, how can anyone call it theory? Well, if it is so established and obvious, why are so many scientists still so hell-bent on prooving it?

  25. Piltdown Man
    This 'mistake' is a big embarrassment to evolution. Established as one of the first "missing links" it had large illustrations made from it, depicting an ape-like man, with hair all over his body, and strange, ape-like feet. But, it turned out to be the fragmented cranium of a human, and the jawbone of an orangutan. It was 38 years before this 'hoax' was exposed. By then, it had appeared in textbooks and in museums as proof of evolution.

  26. The Internet
    This large, public medium where people can write what they please, allows many Christian scientists to finally get "equal time". The popularity of sites like Answers in Genesis are proof that there are large numbers of people who still have plenty of unanswered questions about evolution.

  27. Free Speech
    Teachers who have expressed doubts about evolution in the classroom have been censored and in some cases even banned from teaching biology.

  28. Old Textbooks
    Even though the Bible hasn't changed in thousands of years, textbooks have to be re-written all of the time to clear up outdated science. 20 year old textbooks are an embarrasment to evolution. The Bible is not an embarrassment to me. Perhaps biology should not be trying to teach earth history?

  29. Henry M. Morris
    Dr. Henry Morris is an outspoken creationist who has been very prolific in the last several years. He has authored many scientific books which uphold the accuracy of the Biblical account in Genesis. He and others like him have dealt and are still dealing a black eye to the theory of evolution.

  30. Megafauna
    The fossils show that there was a time, before our own, in which not only dinosaurs were big, but in fact, many creatures were supersized. Why was this so? What was so different? The Bible has an answer for it. Evolution does not.

  31. Amber
    Insects found in "ancient" amber (amber is fossilized tree sap) show many examples of "stasis". (no change over millions of years) Also, recently scientists have analyzed bubbles in amber, which revealed that air quality was substantially better in the past. It was richer in oxygen. Could this be why things lived longer and got bigger?

  32. Ancient Textiles
    Blankets found in tombs from ancient Peru depict beasts which are not unlike dinosaurs. Other art includes jaguars and other animals.

  33. Dragon Legends
    In Europe and Asia in the middle ages, dragon legends and depictions were common. As well as written accounts which tell of going to caves where "a dragon lives" and slaying it. It is important to note that the term "Dinosaur" was not invented until the 19th century. Why so many dragon tales? Might these have been the last of the dinosaurs? Consider the Chinese Zodiac. It has 12 creatures. All of them known to us as common animals. Pig, Dog, Ox, etc., etc. Why is there also a Dragon? Perhaps it was just another known creature at the time the Zodiac was created.

  34. Cataclysms, specifically floods Geologists are well trained to read the rocks as laid down by wind and rain sediments over long periods of time. Cataclysms, such as floods and volcanic eruptions are capable of creating layered strata and fossils as well. In fact, they may be a better way of explaining other things, like why fossils don't form today. Recently, more geologists ARE admitting that many of the earths features are catastrophe related. But you hear a lot more about "Ice Ages" than floods. If you were to acknowledge grand catastrophes, shouldn't you also consider Noah's great flood? Shhhh.....

  35. Dogs
    There are all sorts of variations of dogs. But only one 'kind'. That is, 'dog kind'. They can vary within the species, based on adaptations to environment, diet, selective breeding, but they can also be bred back again with other dogs to create a more basic dog. What's the problem? They are all still dogs.

  36. Ernst Haeckel
    A fine example of a man who wanted to proove evolution so badly, he would lie to do it. Read this article for more!

  37. Nebraska Man

  38. Ancient Technology
    Any sign that 'primitive' peoples were in fact, not so primitive is unsettling to the orthodox darwinist. It upsets the progression from monkey to man. The more archaeology turns up, the more it points to the earliest peoples behaving like... well... people.

  39. Mayan Blue Paint
    Even more troubling than early civilization, are examples where the ancients were actually 'smarter' than us. 'Forever Blue' paint, used by the ancient Mayans, is such an example. Put it on once, and it is good for two thousand years! It still looks great today. As far as I know, you can't get a 2,000 year warranty on your paint from Sherwin Williams.

  40. Cockroaches
    A recent startling find of the worlds "oldest" preserved Cockroach fossil, strangely a nearly perfectly preserved carcass, revealed that they didn't 'evolve' at all in quite some time. 300 million years in fact. Hey, don't you go changin'!

  41. Horse Evolution
    Textbook pictures and museum diagrams like to show a smooth, linear progression of horse evolution from the early 'Eohippus' to the modern 'Equus'. The problem is that to tell this story, you have to add too many ribs, then subtract, go from several toes to fewer, then more, then back down to the modern hoof, as well as the fact that the 'fossil record' doesn't help either, showing many supposed ancient horses appearing next to modern horses in the strata. Horse evolution is another example where the theory looks great on the brochure, but not in the full blown book. For more on the sad state of Horse Evolution, click here. Another mystery of ancient horses is how they came to leave footprints alongside dinosaurs in Uzbekistan, where 86 consecutive prints are found. But wait a minute, horses didn't evolve until long after dinosaurs were gone!

  42. Sir John Eccles - Noebel Prize Winner
    If you read any of the anti-creationist literature, you will see creationists painted as a bunch of uninformed, uneducated, country bumpkins, who are too scientifically lazy, or just plain unqualified to think for themselves. How do they deal with a guy like Sir John Eccles, a Noebel Prize Winner who boldly contends that we are the product of "divine creation"?

  43. Ancient History
    Ancient historic texts such as Josephus, who wrote down the Antiquities of the Jews, spoke of a former time that was destroyed by a massive worldwide flood. They also point to a creator God. These things have to be dismissed as primitive legends and fantasies. It is a further fact, that a worldwide flood catastrophe was the prevailing scientific view almost all the way up until the time of Darwin, in the middle of the 19th century. Why was 2000 years worth of history discarded?

  44. Flood Geology
    Life would be much easier for evolutionary theory if time and natural circumstances were the best explaination for its biggest "proof", the fossils. Unfortunately, time and natural circumstances don't create many fossils. Catastrophes of immense proportions do, however. What makes a fossil? Many people do not know. If they did, evolution might be questioned more frequently. When an organism dies, it is most likely that it will be devoured by scavengers and the decay will take care of the rest. So how is it that fossils in some cases even preserve prints of the soft tissues? Rapid burial is the answer. How do time and natural circumstances explain the massive bone beds which exist, such as the Karoo, a flood plain in S. Africa, where untold numbers of animals are found all jumbled together in a vast fossil graveyard. Even after decades of scavenging from the area bones are still sticking out of the ground. Are we not to question how the literal billions of rapidly buried creatures came to be there in the first place? Flood geology, while ridiculed and scoffed at by the scientific establishment, has a better answers for why we have the vast fossil evidences of millions and millions of rapidly buried organisms, than does evolution-based uniformitarianism. For more on flood geology, ask the experts.

  45. The Human Eye
    Complex organisms like the human eye were very distressing to Darwin. He confessed that it was hard to accept that his theory could account for them. But recent years have given rise to more powerful microscopy which has shown that the cellular world (which was invisible to science in Darwin's day) is even more complicated. Organisms would have had to evolve on the microbiological level, and that would take many more mutations. Mathematically it becomes an impossibility, even given millions of years.

  46. Bombardier Beetles
    This crazy critter can shoot a hot irritating gas, by mixing two chemicals - hydrogen peroxide an hydro-quinone. Until he is ready to fire, an inhibitor is present with the two chemicals, and at the exact moment he shoots, he adds an anti-inhibitor which neutralizes the inhibitor. How did this complex defense mechanism which relies on the coexistance of these chemicals evolve?

  47. The Giraffe's Long Neck
    Now here's an interesting problem. A giraffe's neck is so long, and the blood pressure required to get blood to it's head so extraordinary, that under normal circumstances, when it bends over to drink from a stream, it's brain should explode. Of course it doesn't, however, because a giraffe was designed to deal with such a situation quite simply. When the giraffe lowers its head to drink, the valves close to stop the blood rushing to the brain. These same valves prevent all the blood rushing away from the giraffe's head, when the giraffe stands up again. Some spongy tissue below the brain also gives extra protection. Did the longer neck, the special valves, and the spongy tissues all evolve at once, as would need to be the case, so that it could continue to drink/stay alive?

  48. The Dawn Redwood Tree
    According to the claims of evolutionists, the dawn redwood lived from the time of the dinosaurs until about 2 million years ago. Then it became extinct. At the same time this was official scientific teaching, Chinese rice farmers were planting the tree because it was a good indicator of fertile rice fields.

  49. Metamorphosis
    How in the world can evolution explain away the four stages that a butterfly goes through from egg, to larva, to pupa and finally to butterfly? If you find a great explaination of this, email me and I will post the explaination here.

  50. Honey Bees
    The honey bees are perplexing on so many levels. For one thing, how did they get so smart, with such tiny brains? Their 'honeycomb' pattern, for example, is quite possibly the most intelligent structures. It's walls are wafer thin and lightweight, yet it is remarkably strong and stable. Did they evolve many different "rough drafts" before deciding upon the final pattern? Or were they designed by God to build the honeycomb pattern? Scientists are recently coming to see it as an incredible structure in many ways. Click Here or... Here And here are some other sweet facts about the honey bee: The Honey Bee has a compound eye which can navigate by sun even on cloudy days because it has a built-in, polarized light filter. The antennae of the honey bee contain both his sense of smell and his sense of touch. For this reason they must be carefully cleaned so the honey bee has special grooves on his front legs which are perfectly designed to clean them! The Honey Bee also has hairs on his body to collect pollen, and baskets on his rear legs to carry it. He also has special glands for producing, shaping, and cleaning off wax. And when he returns home with news of a good pollen source, the Honey Bee has a language which he can use to tell the others about it.

  51. Mt. St. Helens
    I was in Oregon when Mt. St. Helens was coming to a boil. I heard radio reports of the building lava dome, watched for weeks as the steam came out the top, and watched in amazement as the huge top portion of the mountain was blown miles into the air. There was ash all over the place, like grey snow.
    What I did not know at the time, was that Mt. St. Helens would become a monument against evolution. In hours, weeks and months, stratified layers of sediment were layed down, which later turned to stone. 'Fossil Forests' were created, mudflows carved miniature Grand Canyons, and the entire area was completely transformed by the event. A vivid example of rapid processes performing in short periods, what evolutionary geology says take hundreds of millions of years. This is a remarkable refutation of the commonly accepted view of geology. Click here for a more in depth look. Here is another great link: The Seven Wonders of Mount St. Helens

    It should also be noted that radioactive measurements of these rocks show them to be millions of years old. Click here for more.

  52. Mass Extinctions
    In the strictly uniformitarianist perspective, upon which evolutionary thought was founded, the natural world around us must be explained through means and processes which we can observe happening today. Mass extinctions, which are now being admitted to, were ruled out during evolutionary theory's formative years. That is because if you consider them a possibility, you have a hard time keeping a global flood out of the argument. Paleontology however, has proved uniformitarianist thinking false. But sadly, many people now already accept evolution as fact. One such puzzling extinction period is known as the "K-T Boundary" where an estimated 60% of organisms on earth were wiped out. This was the end of the dinosaurs. Uniformitarianist thought can't possibly account for it. So what happened to the dinosaurs all at once? Even the best minds at UC Berkely are stumped, click here. But the creationists have an idea... Click here for their side of the story.

  53. The Law of Biogenesis
    Life comes only from life. This is the law. There is a reason why science has 'laws'. It is a law because life coming from non-life has never been observed. So why would the very science upon which so much of the various other sciences currently rest, be allowed to break a fundemental law of science? Evolutionists must surely hate the Law of Biogenesis.

  54. Creationist Museums
    No! No! No! You can't go teaching children that stuff! We are the ones who should be teaching your children. Proper scientists. Scientists who are at least smart enough to accept evolution as fact. There are a couple creationist museums at this time and more are being constructed at as I type this.

  55. Answers In Genesis
    AIG is a highly successful anti-evolution / pro creationist organization. Their slogan is "upholding the authority of the Bible from the very first verse" (that first verse, by the way, is "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.")
    Answers in Genesis publishes articles, holds seminars, sells books, and is even building a Creation Museum in Ohio.

  56. ICR Institute for Creation Research
    Another highly successful Creationist organization is ICR. They have a long tradition of scientifically pointing out the weaknesses in evolution, and establishing the Biblical basis for science.

  57. Right and Wrong
    Why do we have right and wrong? How do people instinctively know that it is "good" to say, give a gift, and "bad" to hit someone for no reason? Even children understand these things. The Bible has an answer for this. Evolution does not.

  58. Supercroc
    A fine example of life on earth BEFORE the flood. In recent times a giant crocodile skeleton was found. Weighing in at almost 10 tones, this 40 ft monster would have dined on small dinosaurs. It is known that as reptiles age, they continue to grow. So a long life, would equate to a large reptile. It was true for dinosaurs as well as crocodiles. Why did things live longer in the past? The Bible has an answer. Evolution does not.

  59. Fakes, Frauds and Forgeries
    The evolutionary "proof" handbook is fraught with them. Some were sloppy, some were mistakes, others were downright lies intended to change the mind of the general public to embrace common ancestry. Sadly, for the most part it was a success. Still, over time, many of these frauds have been slowly coming to light.

  60. Flash Frozen Mammoths
    If you can kill and preserve an organism so quickly that it's lunch is found undigested, I think you could call that "flash" frozen. But what caused the death of the mammoths? Why did so many die so abrubtly? What caused the 'ice age'? Science still has no solid answers. But one thing is clear. Major cataclysms have occurred in earth history.

  61. Fossil Trees in Antarctica
    This may not seem like a problem at first. Until of course, you learn that trees do not grow in Antarctica. Six months of the year there is no daylight in Antarctica. How then, did these forests arise in the first place? Perhaps the climate was different at a previous stage in history? Evolution doesn't have an answer for this. The Bible does.

  62. The Matterhorn
    This famous mountain in the Swiss Alps poses an interesting problem for the "geologic column" which validates the theory of evolution. Why? Because in this mountain the fossils are in the wrong sequence. Therefore, by evolution geology, the mountain is old and the rocks the mountain rests on are young. How can this possibly be explained?

    The current explanation runs thus: The enormous Matterhorn was uplifted somewhere by an upthrust and then thrust horizontally across country for thirty to sixty miles!

  63. The Coso Artifact
    Once thought to be an example ancient of high technology, this artifact consisted of a spark plug completely encrusted with fossiliferous rock. When it was later decided that the artifact was in fact, a 1920's era Champion brand sparkplug, it still presents a problem. How did it get encrusted with fossils? Clearly some things that seem to be very old, are in fact not. It is too bad that all fossils don't come with a company logo.

  64. Watches
    William Paley (1743-1805) was the author of the infamous "Watchmaker" argument. The argument states basically, that if you were walking along, and you came upon a stone in your path, you might look upon it as a natural object that had been there forever. But, if you were to come accross a watch, with all of its gears and fine tuned parts, you would certainly not argue that it had always been there and had no designer. Biologists of all stripes have to concede that the diversity of life is an unbelievable array of sophisticated organisms, featuring a multitude of fine tuned parts which serve specific and interrelated functions. Which argument stretches the mind further; that they were designed, by a masterful and purposed creator? Or that they arrived via happenstance, brought about by chance mutations?

    . . . when we come to inspect the watch, we perceive. . . that its several parts are framed and put together for a purpose, e.g. that they are so formed and adjusted as to produce motion, and that motion so regulated as to point out the hour of the day; that if the different parts had been differently shaped from what they are, or placed after any other manner or in any other order than that in which they are placed, either no motion at all would have been carried on in the machine, or none which would have answered the use that is now served by it. . . . the inference we think is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker -- that there must have existed, at some time and at some place or other, an artificer or artificers who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer, who comprehended its construction and designed its use.

  65. The 'Ararat Anomaly'
    The CIA has on file a strange manmade object on the "other side" of Mt. Ararat, where the Bible says that Noah's Ark was brought to rest. This side has been relatively unexplored. A recent article concerning this has been published at Space.Com

  66. Aquatic Mammals
    This one is almost funny. In the supposed evolutionary order, aquatic mammals such as whales and dolphins present a quirky problem. You see, as 'simple' sea life grew feet and marched onto land, the became reptiles, birds and land dwelling mammals, eventually producing apes and humans. But dolphins and and whales appearently didn't like the land too well, so they actually went the wrong way, evolutionarily speaking and headed back to the sea!

  67. Common Sense
    Common sense would dictate that any highly organized mechanism, capable of performing complex tasks, beautiful and elegant must have a designer. Random chance does not produce highly structured order.

  69. Dust on the Moon
    If the Moon were billions of years old, it should have accumulated a thick layer of dust and debris from meteoritic bombardment. Before instruments were placed on the Moon, some scientists were very concerned that astronauts would sink into a sea of dust—possibly a mile in thickness.a This did not happen. Very little meteoritic debris is on the Moon. In fact, after examining rocks and dust brought back from the Moon, scientists learned that only about 1/67th of the dust and debris came from outer space. Recent measurements of the influx rate of meteoritic material on the Moon also do not support an old Moon.

  70. Stalagmites
    Water from an underground spring was channeled to a spot on a river bank for only one year. In that time, limestone built up around sticks lying on the bank. Limestone deposits can form rapidly if the ground water’s chemistry is favorable. Just because stalactites and stalagmites are growing slowly today does not mean they must be millions of years old.

  71. Lady Hope
    The account of Charles Darwin's "deathbed recantation" of evolution has been treated skeptically, and many believe it to be a complete fabrication. It has prooved difficult to proove one way or the other, but it must be said that the whole idea that Darwin might have in the end turned his back on evolutionary theory, must give darwinists the willies.

  72. Mutant Frogs
    Frogs with six legs flopping around in shallow areas of ponds must make an evolutionist proud. Afterall, it is this sort of thing that is responsible for creating every one of us!

  73. Peppered Moths
    Long used as an iconic proof of evolution, the peppered moth story goes something like this: "The moth comes in light and dark (melanic) forms. Pollution from the Industrial Revolution darkened the tree trunks, mostly by killing the light-coloured covering lichen (plus soot).

    The lighter forms, which had been well camouflaged against the light background, now ‘stood out’, and so birds more readily ate them. Therefore, the proportion of dark moths increased dramatically. Later, as pollution was cleaned up, the light moth became predominant again."

    Recently, it has been found that peppered moths do not rest on tree trunks but rather under the leaves. But, I bet you can find this "example of evolution in action" right in your own Biology book!

    And all those still photos of moths on tree trunks? One paper described how it was done — dead moths were glued to the tree. For more on this, click here!

  74. 'Scientific Illiteracy'
    When people don't accept evolution, it's because they must not have had enough education. I mean, obviously. And let's keep in mind, it was the evolutionists who dislodged and discarded thousands of years of accepted, recorded, HISTORY. So, aren't we justified then, to refer to them as "Historic Illiterates"?

  75. Bird Wings
    In order for a quadraped to become a bird, the forelimbs would need to become wings. This would need to be accomplished in very small steps, accomplished through mutations. (Leave aside the fact that the fossil record doesn't support this.) A front leg, changing into a birds wing, would become a bad leg long before it became a good wing. And of course, a bad leg would not make that animal more fit to survive, therefore, natural selection would preserve the species against such deformities. Another fine feathered example of why evolution simply doesn't fly. They keep on flapping, though.

  76. 100 Scientists Against PBS
    SEATTLE--In an ironic greeting to the seven-part public television series "Evolution", 100 scientists have declared that they "are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life." The signers say, "Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged." Evidentally, these scientists are also "scientifically illiterate." For more on this, click here.

  77. Other Scientists
    "Scientists who utterly reject Evolution may be one of our fastest- growing controversial minorities... Many of the scientists supporting this position hold impressive credentials in science."

  78. "Creation" - Response to PBS "Evolution" series
    This CD Rom is a refutation of the recently aired PBS evolution propaganda. It must be somewhat unsettling to the peddlers of the theory that over 40,000 of these $5 CD-ROMs have been sold already. Click for more.

  79. 50 Scientists
    A book entitled "In Six Days" is a compilation of the testimonies of 50 scientists, many of whom were former evolutionists, who through their research became completely convinced that the world was created in 6 days, as it says in the Genesis account. Among them, is a geologist who studied under Stephen Jay Gould and literally cut the Bible to pieces before totally rejecting evolution.

  80. Bad Backs
    I have actually read that even having a "sore back" is proof that evolution ocurred! The story goes that since our primitive, apelike skeleton was really better suited for walking slumped over, dragging knuckles, that standing up is really hard on our spine! When your back aches, it is because you were meant to hunch over! But the funny thing about this, is that the exact opposite is true! Hunching over (bad posture) is credited with giving you a 'bad' or sore back. The hiliarious thing about this, is that these are "real scientists" saying this stuff! I suppose that even lizards struggled with sore arms because they were better suited for swimming than for walking about on land!

  81. Famous Painters
    What is it about the great artists that makes their work so recognizeable? Is it because they always paint the same thing? Or, is it because no matter what they paint, you can see the character and style of the painter reflected in the finished work? Take Vincent Van Gogh, for example. Instantly recognizeable. Why? The evolutionist would say "well, naturally, his paintings evolved from a singular original painting". Now we know this is ridiculous, right? So why do they get away with using similiarities found in creatures, such as 5 fingers, 2 eyes, etc., as proof that everything evolved? Couldn't it also be argued that a creator might use repeated themes and colors on various creatures as he wills it? Some painters prefer oils on canvas. Others prefer pastels. So, when you see a zebra, a butterfly and a fish that all possess the same black and white stripes, remember; it is not proof of 'common descent'. It just might be proof of a common designer.

  82. The Sexes
    We can all agree that the first spark of life if it happened at all in the 'primordial soup', was a rare event. Extremely rare. But, supposing it did occur, that first cell had to multiply and divide on it's own. How on earth did we get the sexes? And if all things happen via various tiny, nearly invisible, even microscopic, mutative changes, how did the first male or female evolve? And in order to reproduce, to carry on his glorious new genetic mutations (those that made him a boy), he would have needed to find a female, who had evolved not the same, but the corresponding sexual organs? So random, chance mutations would have had to happen at the same time! But not just once, remember, every step of the way, from male and female fish all the way up to monkeys and humans! And it's worse, for this same incredible chance occurrence would have had to happen simultaneously for all of the various sexually reproducing organisms on the earth! And with the odds so stacked against this method of reproduction, couldn't you argue that the initial way of multiplying and dividing was better? Why evolve toward a more co-dependent form of reproduction? Evolution doesn't have the answer. The Bible does.

  83. The Burgess Shale
    In British Columbia, Canada a large Shale formation which has been determined to be "Cambrian" rock (this is the lowest life-bearing rock in the supposed Geologic Column). At the base of the wonderful tree of life, it was discovered that there was no "trunk". That is to say, that all major 'body plans' are found to be here with out any evolutionary ancestry. This is such an indesputable fact of the fossil record that it has become known as the "cambrian explosion". So damning is this evidence of life at the very first start, that evolutionist Stephen J. Gould has suggested that perhaps evolution needs to be 'updated'. (saved is more like it) He proposed the theory of "punctuated equilibria", where rather than a slow steady uphill climb toward bio-diversity, perhaps it is more like short 'creative' spurts, followed by long sustained (non-evolutionary) periods.
    Charles Darwin, in the Origin of Species (chapter ten) says:
    ...the difficulty of assigning any good reason for the absence of vast piles of strata rich in fossils beneath the Cambrian system is very great. ...the case at present must remain inexplicable; and may be truly urged as a valid argument against the views here entertained.

  84. The Human Conscience
    If we are all in an evolutionary race to survive and take out competition, why do we feel guilty when we take advantage of others? How did conscience evolve? The rest of the animal kingdom has no such trouble. Monkeys steal, lions kill, snakes devour and sharks chomp away at smaller fish, all without guilt or remorse. Why shouldn't we do the same? You want something? Take it! Survival of the fittest is the name of the game. No pity for the weak. So how did we get this thing called "humanitarian aid"?

  85. Mathematical Probabilities
    Still believe in evolution? Well the odds are against even the first cell. Consider this excerpt taken from an article by Don Batten:
      The argument from probability that life could not form by natural processes but must have been created is sometimes acknowledged by evolutionists as a strong argument. The probability of the chance formation of a hypothetical functional 'simple' cell, given all the ingredients, is acknowledged to be worse than 1 in 1057800. This is a chance of 1 in a number with 57,800 zeros. It would take 11 full pages of magazine type to print this number. To try to put this in perspective, there are about 1080 (a number with 80 zeros) electrons in the universe. Even if every electron in our universe were another universe the same size as ours, that would 'only' amount to 10160 electrons.

    Evolution is a mathematical impossibility. But wait! They know it can happen, because you see, it has!
    Do you feel lucky?

  86. Insect Hi-Fi
    The male mole cricket has a dandy design feature, which can only be explained as a result of thoughtful planning and design; and a good working knowledge of acoustics. Random evolutionary processes can't explain this one! When he's ready to mate, the male mole cricket sticks a pair of horns out of his burrow. The shape of these stereo horns is basically smooth, with an even shape that actually amplifies his mating sound. His two-speaker system also does something else which is quite unusual for living things. It projects sound evenly, in all directions. Because there are two speakers, The female mole cricket is easily able to find the very center of the sound, the burrow itself.

    Stereo sound didn't exist in our civilization until the 20th century! And we had intelligent designers with large brains, working on inventions! (as opposed to tiny insects, with tiny brains who's advanced features came about by 'accident'.

  87. Oil
    Dr. Melvin Cook said that if oil in the earth was as old as Geologist claim, (80 Million years) its pressure would have dissipated long before now. The present pressure of oil indicates not over 10 Thousand years.
    Cook, Melvin A., Prehistory and Earth Models, Max Parish and Co., 1966., Chpt. 12-13.

    We have been taught that it took millions of years to produce oil. Scientist working in a laboratory, produced a barrel of oil in only 20 minutes.
    Machine Design, May 14, 1970.; Chemical Camp; Engineering News, May 29, 1972, p. 14.

    The reason this method is not used is because it is simply far to expensive.

  88. HUMAN SKULL #1470
    Now, when a Christian scientist finds a human bone or footprint next to a dinosaur, evolutionists cry out "fraud!" Of course, because it would upset everything. But what happens when an acclaimed evolutionist finds the bones? (well, presumably, he doesn't tell anyone) Human Skull #1470, was dated by evolutionists to be 2.8 Million Years Old. Most text books state that the first man did not appear until One Million Years ago. But the real problem is that the bones are said to be even more modern than Pithecanthropus, Homo Erects, Java Man, Peking Man, and Australopithecus, our presumed man-like ancestors, but by these findings they can not be our ancestors. Richard Leaky, its discoverer said in San Diego. "What we have discovered simply wipes out everything we have been taught about human evolution, and I have nothing to offer in its place." He doesn't, but the Bible does.

  89. Rapid Burials
    Fossils themselves are a problem for uniformist thinking. A common misconception about fossils is that they are an organism that died, lay there on the ground for millenia, and was slowly buried with sediment until it became a fossil. The truth is, fossils are a result of rapid, preservative burial, usually involving water, in which an organism is sealed off from predators, scavengers and the effects of decay. How else can you explain fossils of: fish giving birth, eggs unhatched, jellyfish, with their frailest details, etched in stone, feather imprints, fossil footprints, buried before they could wash away, fish in the process of eating other fish.
    When an animal dies, if it lies there on the ground, or on the sea floor, it will in all likelyhood, be a meal to a scavenger. And if not, time and weather will destroy it.

  90. Beets
    In 1800, experiments in France were begun to increase the sugar content of table beets, which at that time amounted to 6%. By 1878, the sugar content had been increased to 17%. Further artificial selection failed to increase the sugar content any more. A natural limit had been reached.

  91. Living Trilobites
    Wouldn't it be troublesome if a creatures said to be dead since near the beginning of time were found living? What trouble would this cause for the assumptions made by historical geology? Well, you aren't going to believe this. Some folks in the Falkland Islands seem to be indicating that these "long extinct creatures" which are evidence of the former world, millions of years ago, haven't left the building, so to speak. Picture and story are included here.

    This is a list of questions to ask your biology teacher. Most evolutionists prefer you were unaware of them.
