Dinosaurs: Feathers or Scales?
Mark Bergemann, Pages 27-31, LSI Journal Spring 2016
Excerpt:  Did some dinosaurs have feathers like birds, or did all dinosaurs have scales like lizards?  New evidence is constantly found in the quest to answer this question.  The Milwaukee Public Museum hosted the traveling “Ultimate Dinosaurs” exhibit in March 2016, so I paid $24 admission to see how the above question was answered.

Essays on Origins
Dr. David Menton, 1996

Essay #13 What Do The Fossils Say?  
Excerpt: "Most evolutionists insist that the occurrence of evolution is an indisputable fact, even if it's exact mechanism must remain speculative. Since evolution is believed to occur far too slowly to be discernible in the time frame of human observers, we must examine prehistoric evidence in the fossil record if we are to observe the "fact" of evolution. ... But what does the fossil evidence say, and does it really support the evolutionary view of origins - or is it perhaps more consistent with Creation?"

Essay #14 The Hopeful Monsters of Evolution. 
Excerpt: "Most evolutionists now concede, however, that the fossil record fails to show the progressive transformation of any living organism into a distinctly different kind of organism.  This has presented some nasty difficulties for evolutionists - but they have made it clear that they will not be dissuaded by the mere lack of evidence, nor will they turn to a Creator to explain
this enigma."

Views expressed on this website, especially those from sources other than LSI, are not necessarily the views of LSI.  In addition, LSI is a WELS group.  There is theological variance between the WELS and some of the Confessional Lutheran church bodies represented in essays and books found on this website.

Evolution's Tree of Life
Mark Bergemann, pages 28-29 LSI Journal winter 2016
excerpt:  The evolution story puts forth a tree of life with an imagined first life form turning into every animal that has ever existed.  Darwin’s 1837 tree of life is shown above.  Evolutionists propose that all creatures, including humans, descended from a single common ancestor.  A different tree of life can be drawn based on the truth God reveals in Scripture, and on what we observe about the world around us.  This would actually be a forest of trees such as the image shown on the next page.
The Cambrian Explosion Paradox
Warren Krug, LSI Journal, 2012, 6 pages
Excerpt:"The "explosion" refers to the sudden appearance of all sorts of creatures in the Cambrian rocks, as if the evolution of animals suddenly exploded onto the scene following a long period of very little action. As we shall see, this event is a mystery that evolutionary paleontologists and other scientists have difficulty explaining."

Creation-Evolution Q&A

Question #9: Hasn’t the fossil record demonstrated Darwinian evolution?

Question #13, What about human evolution?

The Enigma of Living Fossils
by Warren Krug, LSI Journal, 2011, 4 pages.
Excerpt: "The coelacanth fish is just one of hundreds of examples of what are referred to as “living fossils.”  The so-called living fossils are not a problem for Bible-believing scientists, but they are a puzzle – a hard to explain enigma for secular researchers who accept the theory of evolution and who believe that the earth is millions and billions of years old."
