This is Ken Ham, president of the ministry that built a full-size Noah’s Ark near Cincinnati.


Scientists are increasingly seeing small adaptive changes popping up in just a few generations. They call this “rapid evolution.” Evolution, which is allegedly driven by these changes, is supposed to be very slow and gradual. But that’s not what we observe.

These rapid changes actually make sense in a biblical worldview. God created each kind with a remarkable amount of genetic variability. This allows them to quickly adapt to changing conditions by loss of or reshuffling of information.

This is a very wise design because it allows kinds to adapt and fill a wide variety of environments as the world changes. It’s not evolution; it’s God design.
