Q: What evidence for evolution do the world’s leading science museums display?

A: We would expect to see abundant evidence in the science museums of Washington D.C., London and so on. However, as we have visited these museums and looked in the glass cases at what scientists have actually found, we’ve never seen any evidence for evolution. The interesting thing is that the so-called evidence is pasted on the glass case—it’s the printed text on the display! But this isn’t evidence; it’s a scientist’s story about the past.

For example, distinct kinds of animals and plants are displayed inside these glass cases—not transitional forms. There’s no real evidence for evolution at all.

Even a senior fossil expert at the British Museum of Natural History in London once admitted that they didn’t have any undisputed transitional forms showing one kind of animal changing into another. These “gaps” in the fossil record overwhelmingly support the creation account. God created—just as the Bible says.


For more information on the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record, read Luther Sunderland’s interview of leading museum paleontologists at Those fossils are a problem.


Evolutionist quote of the week

“Hind limbs of Basilosaurus appear to have been too small relative to body size … to have assisted in swimming, and they could not possibly have supported the body on land. However, maintenance of some function is likely … The pelvis of modern whales serves to anchor reproductive organs, even though functional hind limbs are lacking. Thus hind limbs of Basilosaurus are most plausibly interpreted as accessories facilitating reproduction.”

– Philip D. Gingerich, B. Holly Smith and Elwyn L. Simons, Hind limbs of Eocene Basilosaurus: evidence of feet in whales, Science, Vol. 249, p. 156, July 13, 1990.
