 *Observational Evolution

Grant R. Jeffrey in his book, The Signature of God, notes:

"It is significant that the various educational groups supporting evolutionary teaching have encouraged their members to refuse to enter debates about evolution with creation science supporters at high schools and colleges. The evolution supporters found to their dismay that the audiences almost always believed in evolution before the debate began but that they accepted the evidence for divine creation by the end of the debate."288/121

There has never been a case established where a living organism was observed to change into a basically different organism with different structures. No observed mutation has ever been demonstrated to be more beneficial to the overall population out in nature. The genetic machinery is so extremely complicated, interrelated and coordinated that a random change due to a copying error in DNA has been shown statistically to have only deleterious effects within the time restraints that have been considered for the age of the universe. Even if life had existed for an infinite amount of time, there is no known observable process that could increase the level of information significantly in a natural system.

If those who believe in evolution are going to make a case for their theory, they are obligated to first demonstrate that some natural process exists that can create order out of disorder. And they must also demonstrate with direct fossil evidence that such a process actually created the diversity of life existing in the biosphere.

Evolutionary Paleontologists in the world’s greatest museums have not been able to provide any intermediate forms that would show beyond a doubt common ancestry of all life. There is not a single example of a series of fossils that would indicate that one form of organism changed gradually into a basically different type with new organs and structures. There is only the assumption and the charts which illustrate this were created in the mind of the scientists, not based on observable tangible evidence. The lowest rocks that contain fossils only show the abrupt appearance of all major groups of living organisms with nothing in between to connect them.

Beyond this, no scientist has ever been able to demonstrate mathematically or otherwise how the large amount of genetic intelligence, 1012, in a single celled organism could possibly have come into existence spontaneously from that which is not living in the first place. The so called origin-of-life have given no indication whatsoever of how DNA or RNA could have originated spontaneously from non-life. Furthermore, the postulated early atmospheric conditions are not supported by what has been found in the Precambrian rocks themselves. It requires an oxygen free atmosphere and the rocks show lots of oxygen present which would destroy the intended product of these experiments. With this indisputable knowledge, scientists like Francis Crick are now suggesting that the first living cell was brought to this planet from outer space from some other planet. Fred Hoyle tells us that 2,000 enzymes are required for life but no mathematical model has ever shown how these 2,000 enzymes could have been produced by chance no matter what age you give the universe. It is not possible through random processes. Since the fossil records do not show gradual evolution but individual species with all organs and structures complete, every thing points to pre-existing intelligent design. Some scientists are suggesting a meteor hit the earth causing world wide cataclysm which resulted in the fossil layers. The end result is that some scientists are saying we need to do away with the concept of uniformitarianism all together.

There is also the embarrassing fact that no where now or in the recorded history of man has anyone been able to provide evidence of gradual fossilization taking place anywhere in the world. The sedimentary rocks do not show evidence of gradual fossilization but a catastrophe which laid them down instantly all at once and rapidly enough to prevent decay.149/154-159

*Quotes By Evolutionists

"I believe that one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deceit in the history of science."416/422 — Soren Lovtrup

"So heated is the debate that one Darwinian says there are times when he thinks about going into a field with more intellectual honesty: the used-car business."417/80 — Sharon Begley

". . . contrary to what is widely assumed by evolutionary biologists today, it has always been the anti-evolutionists, not the evolutionists, in the scientific community who have stuck rigidly to the facts and adhered to a more strictly empirical approach."330/353-452 — Michael Denton

"Christianity has fought, still fights, and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of God. If Jesus was not the redeemer who died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing."418/30 — G. Richard Bozanh

"[Natural] selection is the blindest, and most cruel way of evolving new species, and more and more complex and refined organisms.... The struggle for life and elimination of the weakest is a horrible process, against which our whole modern ethics revolts. An ideal society is a non-selective society, one where the weak is protected; which is exactly the reverse of the so-called natural law. I am surprised that a Christian would defend the idea that this is the process which God more or less set up in order to have evolution."419 — Jacque Monod

"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level— preschool day care center or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.... It will undoubtedly be a long, arduous, painful struggle replete with much sorrow and many tears, but humanism will emerge triumphant. It must if the family of humankind is to survive."420/26 — John Dunphy

"One reason education undoes belief is its teaching of evolution; Darwin's own drift from orthodoxy to agnosticism was symptomatic. Martin Lings is probably right in saying that ‘more cases of loss of religious faith are to be traced to the theory of evolution . . . than to anything else.’ (Studies in Comparative Religion, Winter 1970.)"421/755 — Huston Smith

"Another way of stating the second law then is: ‘The universe is constantly getting more disorderly!’ Viewed that way, we can see the second law all about us. We have to work hard to straighten a room, but left to itself it becomes a mess again very quickly and very easily. Even if we never enter it, it becomes dusty and musty. How difficult to maintain houses, and machinery, and our own bodies in perfect working order: how easy to let them deteriorate. In fact, all we have to do is nothing, and everything deteriorates, collapses, breaks down, wears out, all by itself — and that is what the second law is all about."422/6 — Isaac Asimov

"The author has found that the second law tends to increase his conviction that there is a Creator who has the answer for the future destiny of man and the universe."423/169 — Gordon J. Van Wylen

"More than 30 years of experimentation on the origin of life in the fields of chemical and molecular evolution have led to a better perception of the immensity of the problem of the origin of life on Earth rather than to its solution. At present all discussions on principal theories and experiments in the field either end in a stalemate or in a confession of ignorance."424 — Klaus Dose

"Now imagine 1050 blind persons each with a scrambled Rubik cube, and try to conceive of the chance of them all simultaneously arriving at the solved form. You then have the chance of arriving by random shuffling of just one of the many biopolymers on which life depends. The notion that not only the biopolymers but the operating program of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on the Earth is evidently nonsense of a high order. Life must plainly be a cosmic phenomenon."425/526-527 — Sir Fred Hoyle

"Despite the fact that no convincing explanation of how random evolutionary processes could have resulted in such an ordered pattern of diversity, the idea of uniform rates of evolution is presented in the literature as if it were an empirical discovery. The hold of the evolutionary paradigm is so powerful, that an idea which is more like a principle of medieval astrology than a serious twentieth-century theory has become a reality for evolutionary biologists."330/306 — Michael Denton

"Despite the bright promise that paleontology provides a means of ‘seeing’ evolution, it has presented some nasty difficulties for evolutionists the most notorious of which is the presence of ‘gaps’ in the fossil record. Evolution requires intermediate forms between species and paleontology does not provide them."426 — David B. Kitts

"The fossil record is of little use in providing direct evidence of the pathways of descent of the phyla or of invertebrate classes. Each phylum with a fossil record had already evolved its characteristic body plan when it first appeared, so far as we can tell from the fossil remains, and no phylum is connected to any other via intermediate fossil types. Indeed, none of the invertebrate classes can be connected with another class by series of intermediates."427/263 — J. W. Valentine

". . . But whatever ideas authorides may have on the subject, the lungfishes, like every other major group of fishes that I know, have their origins firmly based in nothing...."428 — Errol White

"The extreme rarity of transitional forms is the trade secret of paleontology.... The history of most fossil species includes two features particularly inconsistent with gradualism: 1) Stasis. Most species exhibit no directional change during their tenure on earth. They appear in the fossil record looking much the same as when they disappear; morphological change is usually limited and directionless. 2) Sudden appearance. In any local area, a species does not arise gradually by the steady transformation of its ancestors; it appears all at once and ‘fully formed.’"429 — S. J. Gould

"Gaps at a lower taxonomic level, species and genera, are practically universal in the fossil record of the mammal like reptiles. In no single adequately documented case is it possible to trace a transition, species by species, from one genus to another...."430/319 — T. S. Kemp

"Well, we are now about 120 years after Darwin [79'] and the knowledge of the fossil record has been greatly expanded. We now have a quarter of a million fossil species but the situation hasn't changed much. The record of evolution is still surprisingly jerky and, ironically, we have even fewer examples of evolutionary transition than we had in Darwin's time. By this I mean that some of the classic cases of Darwinian change in the fossil record, such as the evolution of the horse in North America, have had to be discarded or modified as a result of more detailed information—what appeared to be a nice simple progression when relatively few data were available now appears to be much more complex and much less gradualistic. So Darwin's problem has not been alleviated...."125 — David Raup

"The world does not explain itself . . . it is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything."431 — G. Chesterton
