Facts of Life

The first chapter focuses on the idea that the irreducible proprieties of organization in the biological world (namely in DNA and proteins) demonstrate plan, purpose and special acts of Creation. You do not need to see an engineer and the way he work to realize that an engine was not randomly produced by chance. Likewise, you do not have to see the Creator and the moment of creation to see that features of life indicate His works. The homology of organs in the natural world, the embryonic development and the great power of adaptation of organism all point to an Intelligent Creator.

The next chapter investigates some of the examples of evolution and tries to show that some features of organism cannot be explained by the incremental slow pace of mutation and natural selection and that the usual examples for macro-evolution are only micro-evolution that cannot be extrapolated to account for ameoba-to-man evolution.

The third chapter deals with fossils and show that usually fossils appear suddenly in the fossil record and they remain the same all trough geological history, if they do not disappear just as suddenly as they appeared. The great explosions of species are interpreted as events of creation. The author shows that the few examples of so called transitional fossils are debatable and that the punctuated equilibrium theory cannot be a sound science theory. The author held responsible for the fossil layers a great catastrophic event that has occurred in the past which he identifies as the Great Biblical Flood of Noah. The great lakes that were formed after this catastrophe carved out some magnificent structures on Earth’s crust, like the Grand Canyon.
