Top 10 Questions About Creation:

A note from X-Evolutionist:

A wonderful little book called The Answers Book has recently put online by its authors. It is available to read in its entirety.

This little book covers all of the frequently asked questions about creation and evolution. This book has extensive excerpts from science journals supporting the book’s conclusions.

Before deciding whether to read this, at least check out the number of references at the end of each chapter and the number of journals referenced. Before rejecting creation, please find out what creation is.

Here is the amazon.com page for this book so you can see what others have said about it: The Answers Book by Ken Ham, et al

There are several other great books available on line here: Online Books

What is the ‘gap theory’? Where did it come from? Does it help? Is it biblical? What are its consequences?

Chapter 4: How about carbon dating?

How does the carbon ‘clock’ work? Is it reliable? What does carbon dating really show? What about other radiometric dating methods? Is there evidence that the earth is young?

Chapter 5: How can we see distant stars in a young universe?

If the universe is young and it takes millions of years for light to get to us from many stars, how can we see them? Did God create light in transit? Was the speed of light faster in the past? Does this have anything to do with the big bang?

Chapter 6: How did bad things come about?

If God’s original creation was ‘very good’, why is ‘nature red in tooth and claw’ now? Did God create animals with defense-attack structures? Or were they redesigned after the Fall? Wouldn’t there be a population explosion if animals did not eat each other?

Chapter 7: What about similarities and other such arguments for evolution?

Do similarities between creatures prove that they had a common ancestor (evolved)? Is human and chimp DNA very similar? Do human embryos go through animal stages as they develop? Do we have useless leftover bits of animals in us? What about ‘ape-men’?

Chapter 8: Cain’s wife—who was she?

It is not lawful to marry your sister, so who did Cain marry? Were there other people on the earth? Who lived in the land of Nod? Does this have any relevance to the gospel?

Chapter 9: Were the ‘sons of God’ and/or nephilim extraterrestrials?

Has Earth been visited by extraterrestrials? Could life exist ‘out there’? What about UFOs and government cover-ups?

Chapter 10: Was the Flood global?

Does it matter? Does the Bible say that Noah’s Flood covered the whole earth? Is there any evidence outside the Bible for such a Flood?

Chapter 11: What about continental drift?

Have the continents really moved apart? How could this relate to the Bible’s account of history? Could it have had something to do with the Genesis flood?

Chapter 12: Noah’s Flood—what about all that water?

Where did all the water come from for the Flood? Was there a water vapor canopy? How was Mount Everest covered with water? Where did the water go after the Flood? How could this have happened?

Chapter 13: How did the animals fit on Noah’s Ark?

What animals did Noah take onto the Ark? Where did they store all the food? How could the Ark be big enough? What about all the animal wastes?

Chapter 14: How did freshwater and saltwater fish survive the Flood?

How did saltwater fish survive dilution of the seawater with freshwater, or how did freshwater types survive in saltwater? And how did plants survive?

Chapter 15: Where are all the human fossils?

Why are human fossils not found with trilobites, for example? If humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time, why aren’t their fossils found together? How could the Flood produce the order in the fossil record?

Chapter 16: What about the Ice Age?

How many ice ages were there? Where does an ice age fit into the biblical account? How much of the earth was covered by ice?How long did it last? What about the frozen mammoths? How were people affected?

What is a ‘race’? How did different skin colors come about? Are black people the result of a curse on Ham?
