Top 100 Atheist Challenges

Doesn’t evolution account for the origin and diversity of life on earth, thereby eliminating the need to appeal to God?

Wholly apart from whether evolution successfully accounts for the diversity (which Intelligent Design theorists vigorously dispute), evolutionists themselves admit that it has nothing to say with respect to the origin of life. Indeed, it does not even attempt to do this; rather, it is concerned...


Doesn’t the fossil evidence support the theory of evolution?

No, because the evolutionist's argument requires extra assumptions that (unfortunately for him) cannot be justified.  With respect to any given fossil purported to be a transitional form, the following possibilities need to be ruled out: (1) The fossil in question is of an anima which could...


What about vestigial organs like the appendix, or the gill-slits in fetuses? CERTAINLY you can’t mean to suggest that that makes more sense given theism than evolution, can you?!

Actually, vestial organs are exactly what one would expect to find if Christianity is true.  The Bible is quite explicit in setting forth the inherent degeneration taking place within the created order as compared to the incorruptible God (see, for example, Psalm 102:25-27).  Thus the...


We have SEEN speciation occur in various species of plants. Evolution in action, folks. This should establish beyond all questionable doubt that evolution is a FACT!

Au contraire; what speciation establishes, at best, is that instances of macro-evolution have occurred.  But the theory with which Christians take issue is the theory of common ancestry, which is the thesis that all species originated from a single organism. Speciation as such does not entail...


Do you REALLY think that it is just a "coincidence" that humans share 98.6% of their DNA with chimpanzees?!

In order to legitimately claim that a particular datum counts in favor of one theory over another, at least two things must be true: (1) The theory must lead us to expect the datum in question; and (2) The theory with which it is being compared must not give us reason to expect the datum in...


Is there any evidence for Intelligent Design?

Yes, the digital code embedded in DNA points powerfully to a designing intelligence and helps unravel a mystery that Darwin did not address: how did the very first life begin? Here are two important videos for you to view. If Darwin knew then what Dr. Stephen Meyer presents below, he too would...


I believe in god if you want to define god as "nature." It's called Evolutionary Naturalism.

How do you reconcile creation and science?
