Top 100 Atheist Challenges

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 not reproduce and therefore does not count as a member of a new species; (2) The fossil in question is of an animal the species of which God created originally along with all the rest, though it has now become extinct; (3) The fossil in question is of an animal the species of which evolved subsequent to the creation of an initial set of separate and distinct species by God.  Since all of these possibilities are compatible with special creation by God and none of them can be ruled out on the basis of the existing evidence, the failure to take them into account is an instance of prejudicial conjecture on the part of the evolutionist.
