The Obvious Truth: Creation

Natural selection, which Darwin proposed as an evolutionary mechanism, has in fact no evolutionary power. Natural selection cannot form new species.

SELECTION CANNOT FORM A NEW SPECIES In nature, weak individuals are eliminated and replaced by stronger ones. This phenomenon, however, does not cause new species to emerge. Even if wild animals hunt weak and slow-moving deer for billions of years, deer will never turn into a different species.

Darwin's book: The Origin of Species, By Means of Natural Selection…

Just as it is impossible for life to arise on earth by chance, so is it for species to transform themselves into other species. For no such power exists in nature. What we call nature is the sum of unconscious atoms that make up the soil, rocks, air, water, and everything else. This lifeless heap of matter has no power to transform an invertebrate creature into a fish, then make it climb on land and turn into a reptile, and then turn it into a bird and make it fly, and finally make it a human.

Claiming just the opposite, Darwin put forward a single concept as an "evolutionary mechanism": Natural Selection. Natural selection centres around the idea that the strongest creatures that are best fitted to their habitat will survive. For instance, in a deer herd threatened by wild animals, those that can run faster will survive. Yet certainly, this mechanism would not cause deer to evolve – it would not transform them into another living species, for instance, elephants.

Dark and light coloured moths already existed both before and after the industrial revolution. A new moth species did not emerge.


SACRIFICE IN ANIMALS Darwin's theory of evolution by means of natural selection rested on the supposition that all living things fight a fierce struggle for survival. Observations however showed that animal communities display great examples of self-sacrifice and cooperation. The wild oxen that line up in a circle to protect their young are only one of the numerous instances of self-sacrifice in nature.

There is not a single shred of observational evidence showing that natural selection has ever caused any living thing to evolve. A noted evolutionist, British paleontologist Colin Patterson confesses this fact:

No one has ever produced a species by mechanisms of natural selection. No one has ever got near it and most of the current argument in neo-Darwinism is about this question.17
