More and more scientists are coming to the conclusion that the theory of evolution is wrong and impractical. This theory concludes that all creatures were not created but have evolved from simple micro-organisms in the sea to become more complex ones.

Most biologists believe that those micro-organisms were formed when compounds of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen bonded together in the sea to form amino acids which have bonded together to form proteins.

But this is almost impossible. The chance that atoms of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen are found together in the same place and in the correct proportion is extremely small. Not only that, the probability of lightning striking in exactly the same place were the atoms are found to give them enough energy to bond to form amino acids, is even much much smaller. The probability may be as small as a decimal point followed by 100 zeroes and a 1.

Moreover, to form proteins, there needs to be about 20 amino acids. So the above figure needs to be raised to the power of 20, so there will be 2000 zeroes followed by a 1. To make matters even worse, those amino acids also need to be next to each other and in exactly the same proportion and lightning needs to strike the exact place where they are found to give them enough energy. It is not only that, there needs to be several proteins to bond together- so the whole story starts again. The probability will become very negligible. So the latter figure needs to be many times smaller. In fact, the probability that your eyes will pop out after 10 seconds is a billion times larger than that. It is impossible for luck to form living things, there needs to be someone behind.

Even if we assume that those atoms are so lucky that they have managed to form amino acids, then proteins and then cells, we must not forget that the Earth is the ideal place for life to exist on its surface. It has the correct distance from the Sun; it is not too far or too close, therefore it is not too hot or too cold and it receives the exact amount of light needed. It has the correct density so it has the correct gravitational pull. The pull is not too weak so all air molecules to escape (ending up with no atmosphere like the Moon) and it is not too strong so it does not attract very light gases like hydrogen which is very flammable and poisonous. The concentration of the gases in the air is just correct. Oxygen forms 20% of the atmosphere, if the concentration was 22% the atmosphere would be too flammable and there would be many fires around the globe; and if the concentration was 16%, there would have been insufficient oxygen for creatures to respire. Also, there isn't too much carbon dioxide, so there is not too much global worming and there isn't too little either, so there will be enough carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and sufficient level of global warming. The same applies to our Sun: it is not too small or too large so it provides us with the correct amount of energy. This solar system and Earth cannot have been formed by chance: it must have been created by someone.

According to the theory of evolution, DNA changes randomly and spontaneously in a process called mutation. These slight changes maybe either useful or harmful. If a member of a species has a useful mutation, he will be more likely to survive, adapt to his environment and breed because of his better quality. And after several generations, these mutations will end up in a new species. This is called the survival of the fittest and it is supposed to explain how apes have transformed into humans.

This theory is based on correct observations but wrong conclusions. Fossil records have proven that species change over time. However, such changes are very small and even over a period of billion of years, they cannot change single-celled microorganisms into humans.

Moreover, gradual changes cannot explain how organisms have managed to live in the sea and than on the land. According to the theory, the Earth was formed 4.6 billion years ago and the first living organisms appeared in the sea 3.5 billion years ago. Some of those organisms evolved into fish which appeared 500 million years ago and some fish began to live on land (such fish are called amphibians) 395 million years ago.

But how could fish live in the sea and then suddenly on the land? An organism cannot gradually change from living in water to living on land: there are no intermediate steps. The organs of the respiratory system will have to change rapidly and suddenly- and evolutionists cannot explain that.

The same thing applies to the colour of the skin. It is believed that humans have originated from Africa, therefore their skin was black. After that, some humans have migrated to Europe and over millions of years, the skin colour changed from black to white. How could this change gradually if white humans are not necessarily the "fittest" to survive in Europe?
