Creation and Evolution: The Real Conflict

There is no conflict between special creation and micro evolution. Micro evolution is simply changes within species. Micro evolution is observable today.


Children are not identical to their parents. “No one doubts that descent with modification occurs in the course of normal biological reproduction. The question is whether descent with modification accounts for the origin of new species - in fact, of every species.” [1]


The conflict is between special creation and macro evolution. Special creation follows the biblical Genesis account whereby God created separately each kind of physical life on earth during days three, five and six of creation week. Macro evolution is “the idea that all forms of life developed gradually from very different and often much simpler ancestors, and that all lines of their descent can be traced back to a common ancestral organism.” [2] For simplicity, macro evolution in this website will be referred to as evolution.

Noah's Ark Possibility Project (NAPP)

In September of 2015, this website launched the Noah's Ark Possibility Project (NAPP) with the stated purpose to investigate whether an ark as specified in Genesis 6:14-16 could possibly have had sufficient carrying capacity to save two of every kind of bird and land animal, both male and female. more

Do ice cores really indicate over a hundred thousand years?

Claims that ice cores from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets indicate ages over a hundred thousand years need critical evaluation. Does the evidence support these claims? Could these ice sheets be only several thousand years old? more

Can Radioactivity be used as a clock? 

All radioactive elements spontaneously decay into daughter elements. Decay rates vary among the different radioactive elements at what appears to be a constant rate for each radioactive element as measured by extensive testing over the last 125 years. Scientists have tried to change the decay rates by various means with limited minor success. These apparent constant rates led to the idea that radioactivity could be used as a clock. more

Australopithecus afarensis - just an extinct ape species? 

Lucy AL 228-1, the most complete skeleton of the Australopithecus afarensis species, was found by Donald Johanson in the Afar region of Ethiopia in 1974. For a fossilized australopithecine ape, this find might have received passing interest or fame that is except for the claims of Johanson and others that this species walked habitually on two legs. more

Origins and Life: Conclusions are Not Objective

How you look at origins and life is the result of the lenses you look through.

Through the biblical creation lenses you will see everything in the universe wonderfully and magnificently created by an infinitely intelligent, all powerful, all loving, transcendent, supernatural being for whom nothing is impossible. Everything was made good with purpose and responsible to its Creator. Limits were set. Due to mankind’s rebellion, the whole creation has been corrupted.

Through the atheistic lenses you will of necessity see the universe and everything in it as coming into existence through natural materialistic processes by chance only and therefore without purpose. There is no God. You are responsible to no one and can do what you want. There is nothing after this life.

There are other lenses such as theistic evolution that rejects God as revealed in the Bible and instead tries to integrate God with evolutionary thought. No matter what lenses you are looking through, your conclusions are the result of faith. This is inevitable.
