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 6:20 Genesis 6:20Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come to you, to keep them alive.
American King James Version×
), but with limited variety within those kinds.

• No transitional links between kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs; all parts are complete and fully functional.

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 kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs; all parts are complete and fully functional.
