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.

Creation Versus Evolution Tabular Summaries

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

Are Special Creation and/or Evolution Science?

To determine whether special creation and/or evolution meet the requirements of science, they need to be compared to an acceptable definition of science. Two modern definitions of science from respected authorities are:

          "any system of knowledge that is concerned with the physical world and its phenomena  and that entails unbiased observations and systematic experimentation." [4]

          "knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation." [5]

The above definitions are slightly different but essentially the same so either or both may be used to answer the question. more

The Cases for Evolution and Special Creation

Special creation and evolution are in opposition: they both cannot be true. To prove one is to disprove the other.

Evolutionists best hope for proving their case has been the fossil record. However, after more than 150 years of intense searching, the fossil record does not support the theory of evolution because each phylum (each major group of species having the same general form) appears suddenly; the innumerable transitional forms required by evolutionary theory are not there.[6] more

Evolution: Falsified?

For an idea to be a valid scientific theory, it must have the capability of being proven false. This concept is called falsifiability or refutability. Charles Darwin in Chapter 9 of “The Origin of Species” proposed a test of his theory of evolution through natural selection when he stated:

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not
possibly have formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory
would absolutely break down."
Some question the validity of this as a test as some very imaginative hypothetical means
may be found to circumvent almost any example more
 

Intelligent Design

"The theory of intelligent design (ID) "holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than an undirected process such as natural selection. ID is thus a scientific disagreement with the core claim of evolutionary theory that the apparent design of living systems is an illusion that can be adequately explained by only the natural sorting of random mutations.” [7] more

Origin of Life

In common usage, a miracle is often used to describe highly improbable events such as the “Miracle on the Hudson” when a commercial airliner safely ditched on the Hudson River and all 155 people onboard were saved, the “Miracle on Ice” when the 1980 US hockey team beat the Russians for the gold medal, survival against all odds in the wilderness, and winning the state lottery. The source of these kinds of miracles can be attributed to skill or chance or both. There is also the possibility that God intervened in some way. In cases of the sudden disappearance of cancer tumors without treatment, the disappearance may be attributed to unknown causes or an act of God. more

Carbon-14 versus the conventional geologic time scale

Carbon-14, a quantitatively rare and seemingly insignificant radioactive atom in nature, provides an important key to dating many historical events even the Genesis Flood. With the introduction of ultrasensitive AMS isotope testing in the 1980s, carbon-14 has revealed serious anomalies in the conventional geological time scale pointing to a much younger earth only thousands not millions or billions of years old. more

Dinosaur Extinction

When did dinosaurs become extinct? Sounds like a simple straight forwarded question, but today some believe that birds are descended from dinosaurs or that dinosaurs were types of birds. So based on these beliefs dinosaurs could still exist even though there is little to no clear, unambiguous evidence to support this bird theory. Also, today many old earth advocates claim that the last of all large dinosaur species went extinct during a Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event about 65 million years ago (Ma). Although few would question whether large terrestrial dinosaurs such as T-Rex are extinct, this 65 Ma estimate is not based on verifiable scientific evidence but an unproven set of assumptions. Good science is based on evidence not assumptions. more

Recent dating of the Paluxy River dinosaur tracks

challenges the geologic time scale

Many sauropod and tridactyl tracks and their trackways have been found in the limestone bed of the Paluxy River near the town of Glen Rose, Texas. These tracks and trackways were left as the dinosaurs traveled through lime mud that hardened to become part of the limestone in what has been named the Glen Rose Formation. This formation extends over a large area of central Texas and varies in thickness being about 229 feet at the Paluxy River near Glen Rose. more

Horse Evolution

Horses are popular animals that evolutionists have chosen to use to validate evolutionary theory and indoctrinate others to the idea of macroevolution. Propaganda for horse evolution and thereby macroevolution is found in scientific journals, textbooks, books, magazines, encyclopedias, museums and television so there is no need to repeat it here. Instead, this article will discuss the assumptions (guesses) that horse evolution is based on, information that goes against these assumptions and other plausible explanations for the horse like fossils. more

Flight Feathers

How flight feathers evolved has long been a problem for evolutionists. The current popular theory is that feathers evolved from a theropod dinosaur or “a shared common ancestor deeper in the past.” [8] This is often stated in the media, taught in schools,[9] and highlighted in museums but this theory has many problems. Today, only birds have feathers; however, this may not have been the case in the past. more

How Mantises Defy Evolution

Mantises are insects that should give us pause. Well known for their raptorial forelegs that are often held in a praying posture and their camouflage, these predatory insects have some amazing characteristics.

When a mantis spots its prey, it only takes 50-70 milliseconds to strike with its forelegs. 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.
