What About Homology?

This is Ken Ham, hoping you’ll visit our life-size Noah’s Ark south of Cincinnati.


Do you remember reading about homology in your high school textbook? Now, homology is the idea that similar structures in different organisms show they have a shared evolutionary ancestry.

Well, the similarities between organisms are real. For example, most vertebrates, like bats, horses, and humans, share a similar limb structure. But this doesn’t point to a shared ancestry. It points to a shared Creator!

It makes sense God used the same basic design for all kinds of different creatures. After all, he did make us to live in the same world, eat the same food, and breathe the same air. And the design he chose is the best!

Homology points to our all-wise Creator.
