Essays on Origins
Dr. David Menton, 1996

Essay #10: Natural Selection And Macroevolution
Excerpt:  "Evolutionists like to refer to the sort of variation we see among individuals of a species as microevolution, implying that this is somehow related to the chance formation of fundamentally new animals by a process known as macroevolution. There is, in fact, no known relationship between so- called microevolution and macroevolution. Most evolutionists are quite aware of Essays on Origins, David N. Menton, this (although you would never guess it from the explanations of evolution in the media, textbooks, and in the classroom)."

Mutations Of Evolution


Essay #12: Can Evolution Produce An Eye? Not A Chance!
Excerpt: "Evolutionists counter that the whole probability argument is irrelevant since evolution is utterly
purposeless, and thus never tries to make anything in particular! They insist, more over, that
"natural selection" makes the impossible, possible."

Essay #18: Species, Speciation and the Genesis Kind

Natural Selection -know evolution series
Mark Bergemann, LSI Journal, 2016

The evolution story is a mixture of reality and fabrication.  Natural selection is a great example of this truth.  

Reality: Natural selection produces new species of plants and animals.  
Fabrication: The claim that natural selection produces new kinds of plants and animals.  
 
There are many species in most Biblical kinds.  Every kind of plant and animal which exists today, or which has gone extinct, was created by God thousands of years ago during the six days of creation.  No new kinds ever develop.  New species develop all the time, but always within their own kind.  Birds did not descend from dinosaurs, they descended from birds.  People did not descend from apelike creatures, they descended from people.

Question #5. What is the mechanism by which evolution is said to work?
Excerpt: "Evolution is supposed to be able to create new organisms by means of natural selection and mutations. Nobody doubts that mutations cause changes in genes which can indeed lead to differences in creatures.  Natural selection (a.k.a. “survival of the fittest”) then 'chooses' those creatures which are better able to survive. The idea is that over time natural selection will tend to produce better, more advanced creatures which pass on the improvements to their descendants – hence, molecules-to-man evolution."


Question #6. Can we conclude that no species has ever changed into a different species?


Question #7. Isn’t genetics a key to evolution?
