Why the “Transitional Forms” of Evolution doesn’t Exist

It’s interesting to me that eleven times in chapter one, God used the word “Let.” These statements show us that we can reference things being created or made even without a verb being used until later verses. God shows us what He is about to do. We see this in Genesis 1:21, where God then shows us that He created all of the creatures in the sea and all of the birds

We learnt from my last post that create means “bara” in Hebrew, so we can understand that God didn’t make these creatures and birds from something that already existed, He spoke them into being. In other words, by His power, He created them into existence:

“So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.”

By God’s divine word, He produced marine life and birds. There was no animal life of any kind before now, but God created these in the same way that He brought the earth

This is why the fossil records show no transitional forms (missing links) between inorganic material and the first appearance of life, or from the earliest forms of life and the complexity of structure that we know today, and this can’t be one or two missing links, but it would need to be millions and millions of links that show where we are today

The fascinating thing is that according to fossil records, life in the oceans appears suddenly and even fully developed. We can, therefore, hold onto Genesis’ record, which states that God created all the life in the seas and the sky

In verse twenty, we can also see the first account of God bringing forth (in the waters) “swarms of living creatures”. In Hebrew, this means “nephesh” or “soul”. This is the first appearance of something with a soul and marks the significant difference between animals and plants. Animals and marine life can think, feel, and even decide, which is why nephesh shows that God had done something new on day five
