At Creation Moments, we know that scriptural truth is vindicated, not only in the moral, spiritual, and historical arenas, but in the scientific arena as well.

Ten times in Genesis 1 the Bible says that God created living things “after their kind”, with reproductive integrity “after their kind”. These simple statements encompass several scientific principles of biology proven over and over, including:

  • Biological stasis – species variation can only go to certain limits – e.g,, horses are horses and can only run so fast, etc.
  • Biogenesis – it takes life to make life.
  • Fixity of species – it takes life of one kind to make life of only that kind.

These repeatedly tested and confirmed biological principles go against evolutionism. According to evolutionism, species supposedly have changed and are changing in a grand and ongoing continuum from common ancestors which came alive by chance. Modern evolutionary theory has had to make certain assumptions to try to bypass their problems. The theory must now assume that:

  • Species have evolved through huge mutational leaps (punctuated equilibria) not natural selection, so that evolutionists don’t really need to find the absent intermediate “transitional” forms. (If the fossils don’t support you, just invent a way around the evidence!)
  • Change has taken place over extremely long ages – so slow that we can’t see it happening today, thus giving only the “appearance” of fixity and stasis. (If we can’t see evolution happening now, just require the need for very long ages of earth history to get around the evidence!)

The truth is that the common ancestry scenarios of evolution are modern fairy tales in scientific lingo. God is the great Creator of incredibly wonderful life-forms. He is the Grand Designer and Craftsman of the multitude of distinct creatures we find in the creation – just as the Bible presents Him.
