Traditional evolutionary theory predicts a fossil record that would contain:

• Simple life-forms gradually appearing with similar predecessors.

• Simple life-forms gradually changing over time into more complex forms.

• Countless transitional links between kinds of creatures.

• Beginnings of and partially completed features such as new limbs, bones and organs.

The biblical account of creation predicts a fossil record that would contain:

• Complex life-forms suddenly appearing with no evolutionary predecessors.

• Complex life-forms multiplying “after their kinds” (Genesis 1:21 Genesis 1:21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
American King James Version×
; 6:20), but with limited variety within those kinds.

• No transitional links between different kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs.

After years of study and research, what does the fossil record show?

• Complex life-forms suddenly appearing with no evolutionary predecessors.

• Complex life-forms multiplying “after their kinds,” but with limited variety within each species.

• No transitional links between different kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs.
