Does the Fossil Record Support Evolution?
“And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”
Ask evolutionists what they consider to be the single most important evidence for Darwinism, and you’ll hear them give many different answers. But the one answer we hear most often is: “the fossil record.”
Does the fossil record really support evolution? Creationists know that it actually supports biblical creation! In fact, the fossil record is a rock-solid testament in stone that billions of creatures all over the world drowned in the rising waters of the worldwide flood of Noah’s time. And apparently, Charles Darwin himself realized he was unable to use the fossil record to support his theory.
On his Evolution: The Grand Experiment DVD, creationist Dr. Carl Werner interviewed Dr. Andrew Knoll, professor of biology at Harvard University. Here’s what Dr. Knoll said about Darwin and the fossil record:
“Darwin devotes two chapters of The Origin [of Species] to the fossil record. And you might think that’s because Darwin, like most of his intellectual descendants, would have seen the fossil record as the confirmation of his theory…. But, in fact, when you read The Origin [of Species], it turns out that Darwin’s two chapters are a carefully worded apology in which he argues that natural selection is correct despite the fact that the fossils don’t particularly support it.”
While Darwin’s intellectual descendants think that the fossil record is their friend, in reality, it is one of the most important evidences for biblical creation!
Today’s “Creation Moment” is one of almost 300 you’ll find in “Letting God Create Your Day, Volume 8” – the biggest collection of scripts we’ve ever published.
Heavenly Father, all the evidences in the world won’t get a person to stop believing in evolution or put their trust in Your Son for salvation. Only Your Holy Spirit can do that. My job is simply to tell them what I know to be true. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
