The laws of biochemistry, probability and statistics, and basic information theory are against it. But no one has ever shown them to be beneficial, so as to result in complex and sophisticated designs. Random genetic mutations) The "survival of the fittest" clause is a tautology and success does not imply complexity.
Natural selection shouldn't be expected to result in functionally different or more complex designs. Animals vary based on coded genetic information that is already there.
One must get past the arguments ad populum (that its popularity counts for something), ad hominem (that if you attack the person making the argument, this counts for something), and especially ad baculum (that there are people who have the clout to decree it as true), to ask the key questions and challenge the unsubstantiated assumptions and thinking of those who would hold to the evolution position.
Today there are an increasing number of anti-creationist authors who are producing books and periodicals that make this relatively brief presentation insufficient to deal with all the points in dispute.
The ordering is also too inconsistent to fit within the evolutionary model. Stratified layers of rock containing fossils) There is no basis for assuming uniform geological processes and ruling out catastrophic events.
Furthermore, the process of fossilization should not be expected to occur gradually, but better fits within the model of a geological catastrophe. Fossilization) Burial order does not imply ancestry.
The various stratified layers of rock do not have dates attached to them.
Those defending creation today who don't have the time to devote their life's study to gaining expertise in all fields of inquiry must principally be prepared to think critically, logically, and challenge unsubstantiated assumptions made by these people.
They must also keep a level head in the face of some vicious attacks and diatribes that will be directed against them, as is advised in the scriptures (1 Peter -16).
It is also a shame that the masses have bought all this based on some circular reasoning about fossils, where fossils tend to be found buried, similarities between various life forms, the presence of certain decay products in rocks, and other inherently speculative arguments about the past, based on phenomena that exist in the present.
