Radiometric dating example problems
For example, it explained: All that was true of human life – struggle, competition and lust; what was observable of the biological world – mutations, changing species, and similarities between species, was all explained by chance and natural selection operating on the evolving descendants of our common ancestor over millions of years.
Why should such complex organic forms [i.e., the invertebrates] be in rocks about six hundred million years old and be absent or unrecognized in the records of the preceding two billion years? Yet evolution requires change showing in complexity and information.
After all, this is the general trend that the evolutionary ‘trees’ try to portray – simpler life (like single-celled organisms) gradually evolving to more complex life (like birds and mammals).
Even the supposed evolution of such a simple thing as the elongated neck of the giraffe, cannot be explained by the small successive steps of natural selection. I hope that this page will encourage you to start taking a closer look about this because how you and I understand our origins will have an impact on how we see our world and ourselves.
We will either see ourselves and the people around us as products of chance, only here on earth due to a long series of lucky ‘mistakes’, or we will see ourselves, and people around us as created by a Designer.
As a matter of fact, the lack of transitional fossils showing the textbook evolutionary path (single cell - man) directly contradicted what one would expect if evolution were true.
For example, the evolution from single cell organisms to marine invertebrates (ex. 263.) Thus, the actual evidence showed NO such evolutionary sequence culminating in the invertebrates – they just suddenly appear in the fossil record fully formed. Todd, American Zoologist 20(4):757 (1980))The origin of the land plants is about as “lost in the mists of time” as anything can be, and the mystery has created a fertile arena for debate and conjecture (Price, Biological Evolution, 1996 p. 89 1984) The fossil evidence, upon taking a closer look, seemed to suggest to me that evolution was more like a modern fable than a scientific fact.I had supposed that many such transitions existed, showing the sequence of our evolution down through the ages.I was quite surprised, as I took a closer look, to discover that this was simply not the case.The common design we see in the genetic code, routinely touted as evidence for common ancestry, is much better explained by common design, as these software experts show in their approach to a world-wide computer virus outbreak.I have kept on with my science readings, and I have seen that as we continue to understand more about the biological world, the problems with evolution keep increasing.Air passes through the parabronchi of the lung in one direction only (kind of like how air passes through a vacuum cleaner – straight through).
