Sudden Appearance of Fossils

“It is as though they [fossils] were just planted there, without any evolutionary history. Needless to say this appearance of sudden planting has delighted creationists. ... Both schools of thought ['Punctuationists' and 'Gradualists'] despise so-called scientific creationists equally, and both agree that the major gaps are real, that they are true imperfections in the fossil record. The only alternative explanation of the sudden appearance of so many complex animal types in the Cambrian era is divine creation and both [schools] would reject this alternative.” Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker, W. W. Norton & Company, New York, 1996, p. 229-230)

Human Mutational Clock

Human Mutational Clock tick too fast. Recent research found that about 60 new mutations are added per human generation. 10% of mutations are immediately harmful, and all mutations eventually become harmful. Evolution postulates that there have been 120,000 generations of man. This would produce 7.2 million mutations to the 3 billion "letters" in the human genome. If creation occurred 6,000 years ago, there would have only been 12,000 non-lethal mutations. Mutation expert Alexey Kondrashov agreed that accumulating mutations are very likely contributing to increasing incidents of diseases, including schizophrenia and autism.
