Evidence for Creation in Zoology

Zoology is the scientific study of animals including animal behavior, classification, relationship to environment, and anatomy. It includes both wild animals and domesticated animals used for food or work. The fossil record gives strong support for a special creation by the sudden appearance of complex life forms without intermediate kinds.

Exploring Variation within a Kind

The amount of variation that can occur within a single kind is somewhat surprising. Hybrids that are witnessed between species and genera give strong examples of what is possible. These hybrids will typically have a unique appearance which shows characteristics of both of the parents since they have genetic information from both of them. However, the hybrid animals are not always fertile as the arrangement of the chromosomes may no longer match well enough to reproduce. A common example of an infertile hybrid is the mule which comes from a horse and a donkey.


Camel Hybrids

One of the intentional hybrids is the making of a cama, a cross between a camel and a llama.

Cat Hybrids

Many hybrid examples can be found within the cat family, Felidae, as both small and large cats or wild and domesticated cats are found to hybridize.

Dolphin Hybrids

One interesting hybrid is the Wholphin. This is a cross between a dolphin, Tursiops, and a false killer whale, Pseudorca.

Horse Hybrids

The horse family also has a lot of hybridization including horses, donkeys, and zebras.

Dinosaur Research

Did an Asteroid Kill European Dinosaurs 66 Million Years Ago?

Science Daily produced this article “Dinosaurs wiped out rapidly in Europe 66 million years ago” on Jan. 13, 2015. This is a slight twist or addition to a familiar evolutionary explanation for the extinction of dinosaurs that adds the death of European dinosaurs to the same time of death as American dinosaurs. The primary theme involves the Chicxulub (pronounced cheek-she-loob) asteroid which struck the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. The resulting catastrophe, much like the concept of a nuclear winter, was supposedly the agent that killed the dinosaurs. But was it?

Have Scientists Explained Soft Tissue on Dinosaur Fossils?

Within the Creation and Evolution debate, anything that is strong evidence for a young earth is a matter evolutionists take seriously – in short, they are driven to find a way to explain it away. In recent years, one of the strong evidences has been the finding of soft tissues still preserved on dinosaur fossils. Scientists have been at a loss to answer how tissue could survive for 60 million years (the age which they claim dinosaurs disappeared from history). Recently, Mary Schweitzer has suggested that iron could act as a preservative on soft tissues. Is this really so?

Living Fossils

An increasing number of animal and plant species, that supposedly went extinct millions of years ago, are found alive and in the same shape as the fossils for which they are known. This is evidence that the earth is young and evolution is not taking place.

Sulfurous Bacteria – the Largest Gap of Non-Evolution Yet

Scientists studying sulfurous bacteria specimens collected off the coast of Chile have found they are indistinguishable from preserved specimens found in Australian rocks that are dated 2.3 and 1.8 billion years old. This includes having similar shape and chemistry.

Do Transitional Species Exist?

The great quest of those who support Evolution is to find transitional species – those which show intermediate forms between one type of plant or animal and another type. Many fossils have been suggested as doing this, but none seem to hold up to scrutiny.

Is Aegirocassis Benmoulae an Arthropod Transition?

A fossil, called Aegirocassis benmoulae, has been suggested as an arthropod transitional form , but it shows no evolution, just a complete large animal.
