Extreme Weather Evolution?

Rapid Lizard Evolution

This is Ken Ham, author, speaker, and blogger on why we can trust the Bible, including Genesis.


Several years ago, parts of the southern United States experienced a severe winter. It occurred when a polar vortex shifted south. Researchers found that a species of lizard supposedly “evolved a greater tolerance to cold.” They were shocked at how fast “evolution”—as they called it—had happened.

But is this really evolution? Not at all. The lizards remained lizards, and they didn’t gain any new genetic information. This is simply adaptation and natural selection.

You see, God programmed each kind with massive genetic variety. Selection pressures, like this cold snap, force species to adapt because of this genetic variety. That is not evolution.
