The Failure of
Darwin: Design in Nature
1. What is the theory of organic evolution?
1. According to the modern theory of Darwinian evolution, what are the
two processes which work together to produce new biological designs and thus originate new
kinds of plants and animals?
2. Explain what is meant by "natural selection."
3. Give the sequence of types of organisms which are assumed to have
succeeded one another in the history of evolution on earth.
4. According to this theory, what is man?
2. Does the theory of evolution by random (chance,
unplanned) mutations (changes) and natural selection explain where all living things came
5. In evolutionary theory each new variant organism which is selected by
nature to survive is selected because it is better adapted to its environment than its
predecessor or the other types already in the population. If this theory is to be made to
sound plausible, what should it be possible to imagine and describe for the supposed
evolution of, for example, reptiles into birds?
6. If the assumed evolutionary history of life on earth actually
occurred, what kind of fossil types should be found to show that reptiles did, indeed,
evolve into birds?
7. And if evolution is a fact, what should the geneticists and molecular
biologists be able to discover and demonstrate experimentally?
8. Have the requirements of questions 5, 6 and 7 above yet been
3. What are some examples of species which evolution
9. Describe the defensive equipment of the sea slug, Eolidoidea, how the
sea slug obtained it, and how it works. Can you explain the origin of this marvelous
defense system by evolutionary theory? Can anybody?
10. Describe the propulsion system of the microbe, E. coli.
11. Explain how Darwin's theory prohibits the production of this
propulsion system by evolution.
12. Have the evolutionary scientists yet explained the origin of this
microbe by evolution? Why do you think they still believe that it evolved?
13. Is one being "unscientific" who believes that E. coli
was designed and created by God?
Logically defend your answer.
14. Describe the power of navigation displayed by the migrating lesser
white throated warbler.
15. With what marvelous capabilities are these little birds hatched?
16. What are the several methods of navigation used by pigeons?
17. Outline the functions which the human body carries out in
maintaining the core body temperature at the correct level. Do physiologists understand
much about the details of this control system?
4. What is the central logic of the scientific case for
18. Outline the central logic of the scientific case for creation.
19. Is divine special creation a scientifically acceptable option for
scientists and students and teachers of science to hold? Explain why or why not.
5 . But isn't this a negative argument?
20. Should Christians be embarrassed by the fact that the scientific
case for creation is, to a great extent, a negative argument against evolution? Explain
why or why not?
6. Is there a positive scientific case for creation?
21. Explain the positive scientific case for creation.
7. Why do some scientists say it is almost certain that
life exists on planets in other solar systems and other galaxies?
22. Upon what assumptions do some scientists base their belief that
intelligent life must exist on other planets in the universe?
23. Do you think the government should spend our tax monies to finance
great radio ears listening for voices from other worlds? Why or why not?
8. Does the earth appear to be specifically designed to
support human life?
24. List five features of the earth-sun-moon system which are essential
to provide a living environment for Adam's race.
25. Explain several of the reasons that water is the perfect solvent for
