When one is trying to understand how the evidence came about—Where did the animals come from? etc.—what we are actually trying to do is to connect the past to the present.
I will illustrate how processes such as natural selection, genetic drift, etc., can be explained and interpreted.
You will see how the science of genetics makes sense based upon the Bible.
Evolutionists accept the science of genetics—well, so do creationists.
However, here is the difference: evolutionists believe that, over millions of years, one kind of animal has changed into a totally different kind.
This becomes especially relevant when dealing with past events.
However, if we weren’t there in the past to observe events, how can we know what happened so that we can explain the present?
