What Is “Rapid Evolution”?



This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the apologetics, award-winning family magazine Answers.


Evolutionists have always assumed evolution happens much too slowly for us to observe. But lately we’re hearing claims of “rapid evolution.” Have they really observed evolution in real time?

No. What they’ve really observed is natural selection and adaptation. They see a plant or animal adapting to its environment—or small changes within a population—and call it “evolution.” But evolution requires the addition of brand-new genetic information to turn one kind of creature into another. And that’s not what we observe—ever!

What we do see are small changes based on genetic information already present. And that information was put there by God.
