Why has evolution become so widely accepted, and why has the Bible come to be viewed with such hostility? What has changed?

Although it's rarely publicized, the evidence against evolution is mounting with accumulating scientific discoveries. What societal and cutural factors led to such widespread acceptance of Darwin's theory in the first place?

Many passages show us that Jesus Christ and His apostles fully accepted the Genesis account of the creation.

Consider what some luminaries in science have said about creation and evolution.

Is the Genesis account only an ancient myth, no better than tales originating in other cultures over the millennia?

The ancient Greeks had no shortage of creation myths, with many elements taken from the Babylonian model.

Darwin staked the credibility of his theory on discoveries he was sure would be found in the fossil record. After a century and a half of exploration and discoveries, does that record support his theory or contradict it?

In spite of much wishful thinking on the part of evolutionists, the fossil record does not and cannot be made to agree with Darwinism.

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

"If you would like to dig more deeply into the case against evolution, we recommend the following books, many written by people with science backgrounds.

A fundamental premise of Darwinian evolution is the belief in natural selection driving change in species. Now, after decades of detailed study of genetics, DNA and the cell, what does the scientific evidence reveal to us?

A word of caution on the use of the term evolution: It can mean different things to different people.

Adaptation within a species is called microevolution. Macroevolution is the change from one distinct species to another.

Charles Darwin described the eye as one of the greatest challenges to his theory. How could he explain it? The eye, after all, is simply incompatible with evolution.

One relatively simple process necessary for animal life is the ability for blood to clot to seal a wound and prevent an injured animal (or person) from bleeding to death.

A serious obstacle to evolutionary theory is the interdependent relationships between living things, called symbiosis, in which completely different forms of life depend on each other to exist.

Darwin wrote that his theory would break down if it could be shown that animals had complex features that could not have developed by many gradual slight modifications. We look at creature features that kill the theory.

The world around us provides compelling evidence of God's handiwork and even glimpses of his nature and character.

Do other passages, as well as history, shed any light on this question?

The creation narrative in Genesis 1 hangs first on the 24-hour day, then on the seven-day week.

The consequences of accepting Darwinian theory have been profound. Enormous moral and social damage has been wrought in classrooms and to society.

Many people dismiss the biblical account of creation, thinking it contradicts scientific discoveries made in recent centuries. But is that really the case?
