Are there simple life-forms? (Part 3)

Dr. Kent Hovind April 29th, 2011

Q: My Biology textbook says the first simple life-forms were single-celled ones in the Cambrian layers? What is that all about?

A: Well, let’s see—just from that sentence, I would say (1) there are no “simple life-forms”; (2) there is no such thing as a “Cambrian” layer; and (3) nearly all types of life are found in all the layers of the earth. (This would be expected from Noah’s Flood. See Seminar Part 6.) Today, is the final blog of my series. I’ll explain my third proposition: Nearly all types of life are found in all the layers of the earth.

Sorting by a Flood

All major phyla of plants and animals are found in the so-called Cambrian layer of rock. The slight amount of sorting that can be seen in the fossils is best explained by the Flood. Fish fossils are not normally found with cow fossils, because they don’t hang out together to drown and be buried together. This is covered on our Seminar Part 6.

Think about it—why do the kingdoms, phyla, and classes that first appear in the fossils still exist today? Why is there no evidence for gradual evolution?

No fossil record

Lastly, there is no “fossil record.” There are trillions of fossils, but they are not found with a date or tag on them. Someone with a preconceived idea of evolution puts his interpretation on them.
