The biblical record is verified and evolution falsified. Even at the cellular and lower levels we find immense complexity. For more than a hundred years, an extraordinary water tunnel in Jerusalem has been attributed to King Hezekiah, who dug it to protect the city’s water supply during the Assyrian siege of 701 B.

When I state no evidence exists to support evolution I mean exactly this. To give one a sense of how evolutionists think is a quotation by Richard Lewontin, a Harvard evolutionary biologist: Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We observe that species adapt, mutate, and variate. Evolutionists expand such reasoning into the areas of morphology, cytology, pathology, etc. But again, we confront that nagging problem: no evidence.6.
I do not mean evidence is weak in some areas or lacking in others. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. What is Known by Science The Bible is important in any discussion about the origin and progression of life for it is God’s revelation of reality. But again, equally strong arguments can be made that similar morphologies, cytologies, and pathologies demonstrate creation. We observe incredibly diverse and complex designs in living organisms.
Since evolution has no scientific support, what is it? When evolutionists talk about science in relation to evolution they use microevolution (which everyone has observed and agrees happens) as evidence for evolution. We observe numerous changes can occur within a species. Evolutionists maintain we have a universal genetic code. The evolutionist claims the universal genetic code is evidence of a common ancestor from which all life descended. Even if someone demonstrated all watches came from a common source, they would also discover they came into existence by a watchmaker. It is at the same scientific level as belief the earth is upheld by a giant turtle.4. Examination of living organisms reveals kind produces kind. Given the complexity of life, mathematicians have demonstrated insufficient time exists to make the evolutionary changes and variations we see. Societies and cultures may have different particular laws but everyone agrees it is wrong to steal, to lie, to murder, etc.7.
It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. The same may be said of natural selection, variations, and mutations. The next graph shows how NOAA has altered their 850-300 mb temperature data since 2011. By evolution I mean the idea that changes have occurred in organisms over time to produce new species and that life began from a common ancestor. This is known as microevolution and has been observed for thousands of years. Evolution is myth, ideology, religion, or philosophy. And, invariably evolutionist “proof” exits the realm of science into metaphysics and teleology. And watches are a lot less complex than single-celled organisms. William Paley’s watchmaker analogy remains unrefuted. Even if the universe were a million times older than it is it could not happen. One has a better chance winning the powerball lottery a billion times in a row than for life to emerge through random selection. Gould, the Harvard evolutionist, recognized the problem and introduced the idea of punctiliar equilibrium: evolution by leaps and bounds.
