Is Homology Evidence for Evolution?

This is Ken Ham, often a guest on radio and TV on the Bible’s authority and reliability.


When we look around, we see many similarities among living things. This is called “homology” and it is often used as evidence of descent from a common ancestor.

But just because something is similar doesn’t mean that it had a common ancestor!

After all, a car is more similar to a bicycle than to a boat, but this doesn’t mean the car and bicycle share a common ancestor. They look similar because they are designed for the same purpose and to function in a similar environment.

It is the same in the living world. Living things were all made by a common Designer to live in the same world and accomplish the same basic purposes. So it is no surprise that God used a similar design!
