The Fossil Record: Expectation vs. Fact

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

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; 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.
