The original source of this document is located at originality of content of this document ranges from mere paraphrases of material from a wide assortment of authors to entirely original material that I have not seen expressed by any other author. I should point out that I do not consider myself an authority on the leading edge of modern creationism, although it may seem so to the uninitiated.Those wishing to be on the forefront of knowledge must look beyond this paper.The best source of information regarding a design can be had by inquiring of the designer.A designer provides better and more authoritative information about his design than the design does about itself.(These are employee-interest forums at my place of employment.) It is my hope that this will provide a logical and coherent framework for defending the fact of special creation and the abrupt appearance of life on earth against the popular dogma of evolution.As a preface to this document, I want to point out that it is a shame that we have to continue to refute the same arguments that evolutionists keep bringing up over and over again in their attempts to argue against the fact of creation, which fact has been well established since the day the earth was created ex nihilo several thousand years ago.Those copying and disseminating this document shall assume full responsibility for defending it.I do not agree to defend this document in any forum that I did not submit it, due to the practical limitations of my own time.
It is also a shame that the masses have bought all this based on some circular reasoning about fossils, where fossils tend to be found buried, similarities between various life forms, the presence of certain decay products in rocks, and other inherently speculative arguments about the past, based on phenomena that exist in the present.If I hope to accomplish anything, it will be to simply encourage critical thinking.One must get past the arguments ad populum (that its popularity counts for something), ad hominem (that if you attack the person making the argument, this counts for something), and especially ad baculum (that there are people who have the clout to decree it as true), to ask the key questions and challenge the unsubstantiated assumptions and thinking of those who would hold to the evolution position."Hopeful monster" theories are without foundation and fallacious. The fossil record of life forms) The fossils themselves don't have dates attached to them.Furthermore, the process of fossilization should not be expected to occur gradually, but better fits within the model of a geological catastrophe. Fossilization) Burial order does not imply ancestry.
