The biblical account of creation predicts a fossil record that would contain:

• Complex life-forms suddenly appearing with no evolutionary predecessors.

• No transitional links between different kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs.

After year'of study and research, what does the fossil record show?

• Complex life-forms suddenly appearing with no evolutionary predecessors.

• Complex life-forms multiplying "after their kinds," but with limited variety within each species.

• No transitional links between different kinds of creatures.

• No partial features such as new limbs, bones and organs.
