Evolution Fact Sheet

Some Reasons Why Evolution Cannot Be True


1.      The fossil record does not support evolution.  No true transitional forms between species have been found.  Claimed transitional fossils are rife with speculation and problems.  All life forms appear abruptly and fully formed in the “Cambrian Explosion.”

2.      Evolution violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that systems go from higher orders of complexity to lower, from order to chaos.  That is to say, things run down, wear out, and fall apart.  The universe itself is gradually running down.  Evolution claims just the opposite—that order arises from chaos without intelligent input, and matter organizes itself.

3.      Probability calculations at any level consistently show that life couldn’t just happen by itself randomly, by pure chance.

4.      No mechanism to cause evolution has ever been found.  Natural selection by itself is not a mechanism for evolution because it could only operate on life that was already present.  The supposed mechanism of beneficial genetic mutations has never been shown to produce improvement.  All demonstrated mutations have been harmful, or neutral at best.

5.      For a new species to evolve, new information is required.  Information cannot be produced by random chance.  The result of trying to produce information by random processes is gibberish.

6.      Numerous studies of physical processes have shown that the earth is too young to give enough time for life to evolve.  (Note that all dating schemes, including radiometric dating of rocks, are based upon assumptions.  The initial assumptions set the parameters for the results.)

7.      In spite of claims of living examples of evolution, no one has ever seen macroevolution occur (one species evolving into another).

8.      World population is much too small to have originated millions of years ago.  The present world population suggests a much more recent origin, thousands of years ago.  Recent DNA studies have shown that the human race has descended from common ancestors 5000 to 7000 years ago.

9.      In order for life to be possible, a certain level of complexity is necessary.  “Simple” life forms such as protozoans are not really so simple.  For example they’re complex enough to reproduce.  This principle is known as irreducible complexity.  How then, could simple life forms, without the complexity required to survive, ever evolve?

10.  Living fossils” are animals which were once thought to have been extinct for millions of years, but have been found alive.  They are essentially unchanged after millions of years; no evolution is evident in them.

11.  How could symbiotic relationships evolve?  (These are where one organism can’t live without another.)  The odds against both evolving in step with each other are enormous, yet there are perhaps thousands of such examples in nature.  There’s no evolutionary reason for species to evolve so as to be dependent upon one another.  This goes against survival of the fittest (at least in an evolutionary sense), since the fittest should be able to survive alone.

12.  How could the sexes have originated? Sexual reproduction could be considered a sort of symbiotic relationship.  No evolutionists have ever come up with a plausible hypothesis as to why this would ever have evolved.  According to the concept of survival of the fittest, it has no advantage over asexual reproduction.  In fact it is really a disadvantage.  If it somehow managed to start by chance it would be selected out by a much more efficient reproduction without two sexes.

13.  The Law of Biogenesis states that life can only come from life.  No exceptions have ever been found.  How then can non-living chemicals produce life?

14.  There are many problems with the Big Bang theory.  The theory says that a singularity just popped into existence one day, and then exploded.  The resulting inflation produced time, space and matter.  But noted physicist Stephen Hawking admits that the Big Bang can’t explain the formation of galaxies.
