In 2000, the Human Genome Project announced to the world that all humans biologically belong to one race. Although the people heading this project did not acknowledge it, they confirmed the Bible—that all people are descendants of Adam and Eve and all belong to one biological race.
Despite substantial differences between the fossilized fish Tiktaalik and terrestrial tetrapods, many evolutionists insist the fish was a transitional form. Many evolutionists maintain its fins were antecedents to legs. However, the fleshy fins of Tiktaalik do not attach to the bony pelvis and so could not support weight for walking.
Evolutionists have pointed to fossils of the iconic Archaeopteryx as the earliest example of birds evolving from reptiles. It was the quintessential “missing link,” though creationists countered that it was just a bird, similar to those flapping around today. A new find is forcing evolutionists to sideline Archaeopteryx and change their story.
The facts seem solidly behind the idea that Ardi was a quadrupedal ape with relatively little in common with human. As far as we’re concerned, the evolutionary “threat” to creationists from Ardi is no more than that posed by Ida: viz., none.
Did birds really evolve from dinosaurs? How should Christians understand the numerous claims of feathered dinosaurs used to support this idea?
Evolution predicts a fossil record bursting with transitional fossils. Curiously, there are only a handful of highly-disputed fossils that are claimed as such.
The unique Australian lungfish is making headlines for having an astoundingly large genome. So why does it matter?
No matter how hard they try, scientists can’t connect the missing links in human evolution. Why not?
Some believe the Gibbon-like fossil Pliobates cataloniae sheds light on the common ancestor supposedly shared by monkeys, apes, and humans.
Single-celled organisms called Lokiarchaeota are making headlines as missing links in our supposed single-celled ancestry.
Jaws of life get an evolutionary face-lift from “a bony-fish-like grin.”
We’ve all heard about “missing links”—supposed races of human-like people who were similar to us but not as intelligent or skilled.
A new find has forced evolutionists to sideline Archaeopteryx and change their story.
Lungfish lurch and shimmy to show the way up the evolutionary ladder.
The news is often full of alleged missing links between dinosaurs and birds or between man and ape-like creatures.
The fossilized mammal Liaoconodon hui, found in China, is being hailed as the missing link in middle ear evolution from reptiles to mammals.
Is it time already for the announcement of yet another alleged “missing link”? Apparently so!
So-called “missing link” Ida hit the media in a major way on Monday of this week. Yet within a few hours of the unveiling of the fossil, the better media outlets began to report the real story.
Does Ida, the latest “missing link,” really support human evolution?
Turtle evolution is yet again in the news—and, yet again, the evolution is only in evolutionists’ minds.
For the second time in two months, a turtle “missing link” is in the news.
The supposed missing link Tiktaalik is back in the news, rearing its ugly “evolutionary” head on the supposed transitional element of a mobile neck.
The turtle is known for its slow speed. So was turtle evolution so slow that you can’t even see it?
Scientists have discovered yet another missing link—but like others, this one strikes us as a little fishy.
According to a much-ballyhooed report in Nature, scientists have found another fish-to-tetrapod “missing link.” Just don’t read the fine print.
Might the missing link have done a dance move on its way to bipedalism?
The secular press has been buzzing over a report that a fossil had been found in the Arctic that supposedly proves that land animals evolved from fish.
Researchers working in Ethiopia declared over the weekend that they have discovered “the skull of a small human ancestor that could be a missing link between the extinct Homo erectus and modern man”
Theropod dinosaurs, widely accepted as the ancestors of birds, do not show a step-by-step gradational change to Archaeopteryx, the first known bird.
The trends cited in whale evolution are rather superficial in nature, and little different from those that become apparent by lining up wheeled vehicles within a cladogram.
In a case that smacks of the Piltdown Man forgery early last century, National Geographic magazine has admitted to having egg on its face due to an item it published in November 1999.
Creationists are often ridiculed for pointing to gaps in the fossil record. It is alleged, the finding of a ‘transitional form’ means that one can now argue two gaps in the fossile record.
Dart’s discovery of a skull in lime works at Taung did not legitimize the evolution theory, but rather caused great debate among scientists of the day, raising questions which have yet to be answered.
A fossil truly ‘in-between’ the crucial fish and amphibian characters is not only hard to conceive, but has never been found.
Some of the most inconclusive and misleading reports ever published fall into the category of alleged evolutionary breakthroughs.
