All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.

—1 Corinthians 15:39

Evolutionists believe all life can be traced back to a one-celled protozoan. And from that protozoan all life-forms—reptiles, birds, mammals, and human beings—occurred. Now this is in direct opposition to what the Word of God says. In 1 Corinthians 15:39, Paul says, “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.” There is not a common descent of all life forms—all flesh is not the same flesh.


Another tenet of evolution we need to understand is that evolution requires major changes between species, not minor variations within species. This is key to understand. The evolutionist loves to engage in the bait-and-switch technique for his argument. He will try to bait you into the evolution discussion by saying, “Well, all of us believe in evolution. I mean, just look around you—nature is filled with examples of living beings that adapt over a period of time.”

Microevolution is about the minor changes that occur within species. Macroevolution is about one species transforming into another species. Now, again, the evolutionist will offer as evidence of his theory: “Look at human beings, how they have changed. In a hundred years there has been a difference in the height of Americans. Over a hundred years Americans have grown taller because of better nutritional habits and availability; therefore that proves evolution.” One of the famous studies that Charles Darwin conducted regarded the size of the beaks of finches in the Galapagos Islands. Darwin noted that during long periods of droughts, the stronger finches would survive and they would grow longer beaks with which to retrieve water. And therefore he said that proved evolution. Of course, what he failed to report was, when the rains finally came, the beak sizes went back to their original size. Well, that’s evolution, they say—therefore, if you accept microevolution, you have to accept macroevolution.

But here is the difference—the evolutionist says if you allow enough time, those tiny changes will add up to major changes. Eventually you will have reptiles turning into birds, into apes, and into human beings. But is that logical? Does microevolution always lead to macroevolution? There is not one scintilla of evidence out there for macroevolution. You might find this interesting—in the latter years of his life, even Charles Darwin made that admission. In his memoir, “My Life and Letters,” Darwin said, “Not one change of species into another is on record. We cannot prove that a single species has been changed.” That’s quite a confession, isn’t it? Yet, in the public classrooms today it is taught as fact that species transformed into species. And Darwin said there’s no evidence of it whatsoever. Why don’t any transitional forms between species exist? Because evolution is a myth.
