They’re called missing links because they’re missing

Missing Common Ancestors. In the evolution story, it is said that humans did not evolve from chimps, both species evolved from a common ancestor. The same story is mentioned for birds / dinosaurs and amphibians / fish and reptiles / mammals and everything in between. The problem is that all of these common ancestors are missing. The actual transitional fossils that have been found are questionable in the accuracy of their interpretations. The pattern of discovered missing links by evolutionists is that a small fragment is extrapolated by artists to fit the exact ancestor that was needed to link two species. See the charts below and you will notice that the common ancestors are missing:

Convergence…sounds scientificky doesn’t it?

Convergence. When two are more organisms have the same shape, functionality, or organ, but are not said to have a close evolutionary ancestor, the organisms are said to have experienced convergence. It is used as a scientific-sounding term to hide evolutionary problems of similarities in unrelated organisms. The hope for evolutionists is that if there is a word associated with the problem, then there is no need to actually have evidence to show how the feature showed up, not just once, but many times throughout evolutionary history. An example of this would be that bats and dolphins use echolocation to eat, but they are not viewed as having a close evolutionary relationship.

To say that a shape, functionality, or organ evolved naturally even one time stretches the credibility/mathematics of reason, but to say that the same shape, functionality, or organ evolved multiple times in distinct and unrelated species is beyond belief.

Horsing Around

Horse evolution was said to be the most complete evidence for evolution. Now the most recent discoveries are throwing this evolutionary story into chaos.

many museums and popular books have presented a neat series starting from the dog-sized, four-toed ‘dawn horse’ or ‘Eohippus,’ which supposedly lived 50 million years ago. The next creature is usually a larger creature like Mesohippus, which had three toes. The next one was larger still, for example Merychippus, which had two of the toes smaller than the third. Finally, there is the large modern horse, Equus, with only one toe

As the biologist Heribert-Nilsson said, ‘The family tree of the horse is beautiful and continuous only in the textbooks

With the latest understanding of the horse fossils, it is more clear that the horse was created and has been reproducing after its kind just exactly as God decreed in Genesis 1:24-25

Homology is Only Skin Deep

It has been proposed among evolutionists that since different kinds of creatures (humans, birds, whales…) have similar bone structures (5 bones in hand/wing/fin…) that they evolved from a common ancestor. The same observation could be interpreted to mean that these creatures all had a common designer. One of the problems with the idea that similarities among creatures proves a common ancestor has only been revealed in recent times with the analysis of DNA. This problem is manifest when studying the genes that code for similar regions in distinct kinds. An evolutionist would expect the same gene to code for the same appendage if they evolved from one another. But this is not the case. Genes are not conserved as one would expect if evolution were true. The table below illustrates the problems for evolution:

Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Antibiotic resistant bacteria. The idea that bacteria have evolved to be resistant to antibiotics is said to be proof of the grand theory of evolution. However, what has really happened it that bacteria do not develop new features that make them resistant. Within a population of bacteria, there are mutants (degenerates) that have lost the functionality that antibiotics attack. If the antibiotic succeeds in killing all of the bacteria that are not resistant, then the resistant strains can reproduce unchecked.

Bacteria have been found in ancient graves or archaeological digs (prior to the invention of modern antibiotics) and there are antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This shows that these bacteria have not evolved new traits since the introduction of modern medicine. They were already in bacterial populations; they are only able to thrive when the non-resistant bacteria are killed off for them.

Geologic Column

It is taught in textbooks from elementary school to college that fossil material is sorted consistently by age. It is said that simple organisms are buried first and then fish, then amphibians, then reptiles, then birds, then mammals, and finally mankind. It is taught that since these orders of animals are buried in this manner that the conclusion is that things evolved new traits over time and that the fossil record tracks a consistent and comprehensive history of evolutionary life from a simple common ancestor.

The problem with this education is that it is false. The geologic column does not exist in its entirety anywhere on earth. Many of the “established” layers are buried in the “wrong” order according to the theory. Fossils are buried in the “wrong” layers.

The worldwide flood described in Genesis makes far more sense of the accumulation of sedimentary layers all over the world. Dinosaurs are not buried with humans, not because they did not live at the same time, but because they did not live in the same place. Would you want to live close to dinosaurs? Human fossils are not found buried with coelacanth either, but it is verifiable that humans live contemporarily with coelacanth fish.

It is taught that the lower in the strata an animal is buried, the simpler or earlier it is said to have lived compared to the creatures buried in higher strata. But highly complex creatures have been found in the lowest strata, which is a paradox for evolutionists.
