Are Evolution and Adaptation the Same?
Due to the bombardment of evolutionary propaganda, most people think the terms evolution and adaptation basically represent the same thing. But nothing could be further from the truth. When one has...
Do 'Useless' Organs Prove Humans Evolved?
People who believe humans evolved from an ape-like animal millions of years ago claim we have many useless organs. They say these organs once had a function in our evolutionary past, and that’s...
When Did Noah's Flood Happen?
Unlike all other religious texts, the Bible supplies hundreds of time stamps for key events. They let us test the Bible against itself and the history recorded outside the Bible. However, not all the...
Is Evolution a Lie?
In the view of modern culture, how could anyone be so foolish as to doubt evolution? After all, its defenders point to all kinds of examples to back their beliefs. A thoughtful look, though, at two...
Were There Days Before God Created the Sun?
ICR recently received a letter asking a common creation question. Genesis 1 describes the creation of all things in six days. Since Genesis says God didn’t create the sun until Day 4, that means...
Who Were Cro-Magnon People?
If you’re like me, you appreciate the variations God designed the human frame to express. Wide or narrow, tiny or giant, having high or shallow nose bridges or foreheads, every person differs...
Why Don't Poison Dart Frogs Poison Themselves?
Found in Central and South America, the poison dart frog uses its skin toxin for defense and its bright colors as a warning. Each tiny amphibian holds enough toxin in its skin to kill 10 people.1 Its...
Could You Outrun Goliath?

Did Fish Learn to Walk?
Virtually all natural history museums have a diorama displaying fish with strange leg-like fins emerging from the water onto land. This is a critical evolutionary event—gills somehow evolving...
Why Don't Chimps Smile?
Chimpanzees might appear human-like to those who’ve decided that humans evolved from primates. But these people tend to ignore big differences. For one thing, chimps don’t smile. They can’t....
Is the Earth Round?
Some readers might think the answer to this question is so obvious that maybe we’re offering it as a kind of joke—but it’s no joke. A growing number of people seem to actually believe...
Do Dinosaurs Disprove the Bible?
My family and I saw an interesting car emblem while on a road trip. It showed a T. rex-like dinosaur taking a bite out of a Christian fish. This led to a healthy in-car discussion. Does the existence...
Are Planets Only Thousands of Years Old?
Go to a standard planetarium show or watch a television documentary on the solar system and you’ll hear that the planets formed about four and a half billion years ago. But the many evidences...
Why Do Kangaroos Live Only in Australia?

Did the Euphrates Flow before the Flood?
The Bible makes it clear that the Flood destroyed Earth’s surface. However, Genesis 2 says that a river named Euphrates flowed before the Flood, even though a river with that same name currently...
Why Did Neanderthals Look Different From Us?
When people think of Neanderthals, an evolutionary image of primitive cave men might come to mind. This is bolstered by the perception that they looked very different from modern humans. However, Neanderthals...
Why Creation Ministry?
When I finally grasped how important Genesis is to Christianity, society, and the meaning of life, I felt like someone had just opened the door to a vast treasure room. How precious the words of Genesis...
What Were the 'Waters Above the Firmament'?
Early ICR scientists hypothesized that the “waters which were above the firmament”1 implied a canopy of water vapor that covered the earth before the Flood. However, later tests led researchers...
Does Modern Genetics Confirm a Historical Adam?
If mankind evolved from ape-like ancestors, then our DNA should look messy from millions of years of trial-and-error mutations. Instead, it looks nice and tidy. Almost every cell in our bodies contains...
Do Arguments Help with Ministry?
We often think of an argument as an angry disagreement, but in logic “argument” refers simply to presenting statements or reasons to support a conclusion. Some say arguments have little...
Were Dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark?
When visitors inspect ICR’s seven-and-a-half-foot-long model of Noah’s Ark, the dinosaur figurines on the bottom deck tend to catch their eyes. They often ask about those dinosaurs, giving...
What Was the Pre-Flood World Like?
Many who study Genesis show intense curiosity about the pre-Flood world. But “the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water,” so little physical evidence remains.1 Reconstructing...
Was Adam a Real Person?
Our anti-Bible world ridicules those who insist that Adam was a real, historical person, and consequently many Christians doubt Adam too. Old Testament professor John Walton recently wrote that perhaps...
Did Hebrew Authors Fake the Creation Account?
My family’s copy of Joseph Rhymer’s Atlas of the Biblical World echoes what many Bible scholars have taught about Genesis: “There are two creation accounts.”1 One account spans...
Can Carbon Dating Be Trusted?

Do Stars Still Form Today?
“Our own Milky Way produces, on average, at least one new star every year,” begins a University of Michigan news story detailing how galactic dust interactions may regulate star formation.1...
Did Humans Evolve from Ape-Like Ancestors?
The popular story of human origins is that humans evolved from ape-like ancestors over millions of years. If this is true, it defines our very identities. Are we creations of the God of the Bible who...
Where Could Adam's Sons Find Wives?
According to Genesis, Adam and Eve had sons, and 1 Corinthians 15:22 teaches that all of us descended from Adam. But if they only had sons, then where did their children find the wives necessary to...
Does Teaching Recent Creation Hinder the Gospel?
Christians who oppose recent creation often assert that faith in Christ does not require a belief in recent creation, and they argue that insisting that the world is only thousands of years old hinders...
Does Our Immune System Indicate Disease Before the Fall?
by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D., and Frank Sherwin, M.A.* If God originally created the world without death and disease, where did our bodies get their disease-fighting capabilities? Christians...
Are Animals the Result of Natural Processes or Creation?
Either the current animals on this planet somehow evolved from simple creatures or they suddenly appeared—amazingly complex the first time we find them—with no evolutionary ancestors. Put...
Do Darwin's Finches Prove Evolution?
