Answers to Atheists Evolutionary Puzzles


None. Zero. Evidence does not speak for itself or prove conclusions like origins or most other theories (that is why they are theories and not facts). Evidence is the same for everyone- naturalist or creationist.

To repeat: We all have identical evidence.

It is the assumptions (and differing worldviews) that drive conclusions. Such inferences are in place before any evidence is examined, categorized, tested, or measured. The evidence does not contradict young-earth creationism- deductions from the evidence can. But evidence can also directly support a “young” earth conclusion.

(Science is) the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation, experimentation, and the testing of theories against the evidence obtained.”

Science (is) any system of knowledge that is concerned with the physical world and its phenomena and that entails unbiased observations and systematic experimentation. In general, a science involves a pursuit of knowledge covering general truths or the operations of fundamental laws.”

To illustrate: Fossils do not come from the planet with a time stamp. There are bodies of evidence that can be tested using tools to calculate antiquity, like Potassium-Argon (volcanic rocks-not in the fossil directly) radiometric dating of millions of years, while other radiometric methods like carbon-14 (IN the fossils directly) plus soft tissues including DNA fragments, date the fossil as just thousands of years old.

Both inferences cannot be correct. Therefore, the predetermined worldview of the individual determines which inference to accept and which deduction must be in error.

See? It is not the evidence, and it is the inferences.
