Are Cities Driving Evolution?

by on


This is Ken Ham, author of the new book Gospel Reset: Salvation Made Relevant.


A recent study claimed that cities are driving evolution. Supposedly, cities are “spawning new species” in 20 years!

But it isn’t the organisms that are evolving—it’s the definition of evolution. According to these researchers, evolution refers to the frequency of certain genes in a population. So now evolution isn’t the production of brand-new features or information, which has never been observed: it’s now the frequency of genes that were already there!

Evolution will never be observed because it contradicts God’s Word. What is observed is adaptation and speciation. This fits with the Bible’s teaching, organisms reproduce according to their kind.
