It’s all over now, and we may as well admit it. Here are Four Scientific Reasons That Refute Evolution from the creation scientists at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the granddaddy of all creationist outfits — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom.
ICR has totally demolished evolution in their latest article. One refutation would be enough, but they’ve got four — four! We can’t deny it any longer, dear reader, the wicked house of Darwin is crumbling. We know this won’t be easy for you, but it’s our duty to inform you of the latest findings of creation science; so here are some excerpts from ICR’s article, with bold font added by us:
Four clear observations show why evolution — which asserts that fish became fishermen by nature’s provision of new biological information — is utterly unscientific.
Not just plain old unscientific, but utterly unscientific. Here comes the first reason:
1. Fossils do not show evolution. Many undisputed fossil lineups should show transitions between the unrelated creatures that evolutionists insist share common ancestry. But the few fossil forms claimed by some evolutionists to represent transitions between basic kinds are disputed by other evolutionists on scientific grounds.
Ka-boom! — no transitional fossils! This does not exist. Let’s see the next reason:
2. Living creatures do not evolve between kinds. Experiments designed to detect evolution should have caught a glimpse by now, but they have not. When researchers simulated fruit fly evolution by systematically altering each portion of fruit fly DNA, they found only three resulting fruit fly categories, published in 1980: normal, mutant, or dead. A 2010 study found no net fruit fly evolution after 600 generations. Similarly, microbiologists watched 40,000 generations of E. coli bacteria become normal, mutant, or dead. None truly evolved.
Gasp! They actually proved it — you can’t get a platypus out of a Petri dish, and there ain’t no crock-o-duck. ICR continues:
3. Genetic entropy rules out evolution. Population geneticists count and describe genetic mutations over many generations in creatures like plants and people. Mutations are copying errors in the coded information carried by cells. The overwhelming majority of mutations have almost no effect on the body. Also, far more of these nearly neutral mutations slightly garble genetic information than any others that might construct new and useful information. Therefore, many more slightly harmful mutations accumulate than any other kind of mutation — a process called “genetic entropy.” Each individual carries his own mutations, plus those inherited from all prior generations.
Cells are left to interpret the damaged information like scholars who try to reconstruct text from tattered ancient scrolls. Ultimately, too little information remains, resulting in cell death and eventually extinction. Genetic entropy refutes evolution by ensuring that information is constantly garbled and by limiting the total generations to far fewer than evolutionary history requires.
It’s all downhill. Mutations are a one-way path to oblivion. Here’s more:
4. All-or-nothing vital features refute evolution. Finally, transitioning between basic kinds is not possible because it would disable vital creature features. For example, the reptile two-way lung could not morph into a bird’s unique one-way lung. The reptile lung would have to stop breathing while it waited for evolution to either construct or transfer function to the new bones, air sacs, and parabronchi required by the new bird system. Such a creature would suffocate in minutes, ending its evolution.
Here’s the stunning conclusion:
These four observations show why the unbiblical evolutionary idea that creatures change without limits is unscientific. If creatures evolved through nature — and not God — then Scripture is not trustworthy, since from beginning to end it credits God as Creator. But science clearly confirms the Genesis creation account.
That’s it, dear reader. ICR has clearly proved its case. Evolution is doomed!
