Questions for Evolutionists
by Dr. Kent Hovind
The test of any theory is
whether or not it provides answers to basic questions.
Some well-meaning but misguided people think evolution
is a reasonable theory to explain man’s questions
about the universe. Evolution is not a good theory—it
is just a pagan religion masquerading as science.
1. Where did the space for
the universe come from?
2. Where did matter come
3. Where did the laws of
the universe come from (gravity, inertia, etc.)?
4. How did matter get so
5. Where did the energy
come from to do all the organizing?
6. When, where, why, and
how did life come from dead matter?
7. When, where, why, and
how did life learn to reproduce itself?
8. With what did the first
cell capable of sexual reproduction reproduce?
9. Why would any plant or
animal want to reproduce more of its kind since this
would only make more mouths to feed and decrease the
chances of survival? (Does the individual have a drive
to survive, or the species? How do you explain this?)
10. How can mutations (recombining
of the genetic code) create any new, improved varieties?
(Recombining English letters will never produce Chinese
11. Is it possible that
similarities in design between different animals prove
a common Creator instead of a common ancestor?
12. Natural selection only
works with the genetic information available and tends
only to keep a species stable. How would you explain
the increasing complexity in the genetic code that must
have occurred if evolution were true?
13. When, where, why, and
how did: a) Single-celled plants become multicelled?
(Where are the two- and threecelled intermediates?)
b) Single-celled animals evolve? c) Fish change to amphibians?
d) Amphibians change to reptiles? e) Reptiles change
to birds? (The lungs, bones, eyes, reproductive organs,
heart, method of locomotion, body covering, etc., are
all very different!) How did the intermediate forms
14. When, where, why, how,
and from what did: a) Whales evolve? b) Sea horses evolve?
c) Bats evolve? d) Eyes evolve? e) Ears evolve? f) Hair,
skin, feathers, scales, nails, claws, etc., evolve?
15. Which evolved
first (how, and how long, did it work without the others)?
a) The digestive system, the food to be digested, the
appetite, the ability to find and eat the food, the
digestive juices, or the body’s resistance to
its own digestive juice (stomach, intestines, etc.)?
b) The drive to reproduce or the ability to reproduce?
c) The lungs, the mucus lining to protect them, the
throat, or the perfect mixture of gases to be breathed
into the lungs? d) DNA or RNA to carry the DNA message
to cell parts? e) The termite or the flagella in its
intestines that actually digest the cellulose? f) The
plants or the insects that live on and pollinate the
plants? g) The bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply,
or muscles to move the bones? h) The nervous system,
repair system, or hormone system? i) The immune system
or the need for it?
