The Fossil Record

Charles Darwin wrote in his book, The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life, “If my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties…must assuredly have existed.”

I agree with Darwin on this issue. Had Darwinian style change begun with goo and led to me and you, the fossil record would be full of transitional fossils as one kind of plant or animal gradually changed into another kind. However, despite claims from the Darwinian faithful that the fossil record supports their religious belief, not a single viable fossilized (or living) link has been found that will stand up to scientific scrutiny. Claims to the contrary are based on bluff and bluster.

You might be thinking, “Hey, I saw drawings of missing links in my high school biology book,” Indeed, such textbooks do contain drawings of various transitional forms. However, despite being presented as fact, the drawings are based on the artist’s conception of what the link would have looked like if one were ever found. In other words, Darwinists are experts at drawing things that never existed to support their theory that never took place.

Due to the lack of links in the water deposited strata, Darwinists invented Punctuated Equilibrium. This is the claim that evolution occurred too quickly for transitional forms to be captured in the fossil record. Well, so much for science being knowledge derived from the study of existing evidence! It is little wonder that the Word of God warns us to beware of false science, or false knowledge, which has caused some to err concerning their faith (1 Timothy 6:20-21).

True science on the other hand, findings based on observable facts, is a Believer’s best friend.  This is especially true when the facts are correctly interpreted through a biblical worldview. Take for example findings from ICR’s Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth project. Carbon 14 is measured in Carbon Dating. This element should decay away in less than 100,000 years yet studies find C-14 exists, in the same range of amounts, in all fossil bearing layers.

Keep in mind that secularists interpret these strata to be up to 580 million years old (5,800 periods of 100,000 years). Thus the findings reveal the fossil record is only a few thousand years old and formed in a single event. Research also reveals C-14 is still present in diamonds, coal, oil and natural gas deposits. I suggest the sedimentary layers which contain the fossil record were laid down by water in the global flood and that there are no transitional fossils in these strata because Darwinian evolution never occurred.  

I expose the frauds of Darwinism in my message, 50 Facts versus Darwinism in the Textbooks. I cover old-earth beliefs and evidences of the global flood in my teaching, "An Old Earth or A Global Flood".

I also suggest that we put our faith in the Word of God. Word for word and cover to cover.
