CREATION: Transitional Forms

Welcome to Apologetics with Carl Kerby.

Today, we’re talking about the apologetic argument from creation. One of the biggest myths of evolution is that there are “transitional forms” in the fossil record. Maybe you’ve been called a “missing link” before, but the truth is – missing links are called “missing” for a reason … they’re not part of the fossil record!

In fact, the lack of transitional forms caused former San Francisco State University biology professor Dean Kenyon to begin having such doubts about evolution that he became a CREATIONIST! Kenyon said:

And let us dispose of a common misconception. The complete transmutation of even one animal species into a different species has never been directly observed either in the laboratory or in the field.


That leaves only one reasonable conclusion – God created all things fully-formed like the Bible records. As Psalm 148:5 says, God “commanded, and they were created.”

The complexity of life gives evidence for God as our Creator, too, but we’ll address that another time. Until then, find more apologetic resources at Stay bold!
