Darwin’s Finches Evidence of Evolution



This is Ken Ham, encouraging all churches to start their thinking with God’s Word.


Perhaps the most famous icon of evolution are the so-called “Darwin’s finches” of the Galapagos. Now, Darwin properly observed that these various finch species had different-sized beaks. This allowed them to eat various kinds of food. If one food source thrived, the finches that could easily eat it also thrived.

This is hailed as evidence of “evolution in action.” But the finches still produce finches! No new kind of creature has formed. What we’re really observing is variation within a kind. God created each kind with a huge amount of genetic variability. This allows them to adapt and thrive in changing conditions.

No, it has nothing to do with evolution.
