How to locate additional information for your research paper
This paperback is an abridgement of our much larger, 3-volume, 1,326-page, 8½ x 11, Evolution Disproved Series. Students and researchers will want to use both this paperback and the larger set (now on our website), in digging deeper into the subject and in the preparation of study papers.
HOW TO DO RESEARCH WORK
Survey the field, narrow your search, and select a topic. Browse through the material in this book. Use the table of contents to help you. Locate a topic of special interest. Read the chapter and related material which most nearly deals with that subject. Decide how narrow or broad you want to make your report (that is, how many different things you want to include).
Deepen your research:
Search the index in this paperback for further information on key points mentioned in the chapter. Look up key words about your research topic. They will lead you to other key words to check on. For example: Index fossils might lead you to trilobites which, among other things, will lead you to evidence that humans lived during the Cambrian period when trilobites did.
Go to our website (evolution-facts.org) and search there. It contains data not found in this paperback, especially the appendixes at the back of each chapter.
From time to time, special new articles are added to our website. So you will want to check it every so often.
Download sections which you can use into your computer or, without downloading, use your computer printer to print out sections which you think may help you in your research. Include data from this paperback, to help you write your report. You have our permission to copy anything from our website.
Go to the section on our website which lists other Creationist Organizations. Following those links will lead you to source material they might have, plus books they sell. You might also wish to join a nearby Creationist Organization.

MATERIAL OMITTED FROM THIS PAPERBACK
The following material, which is omitted from this paperback, is included in our 3-volume set and on our website:
Chapter 11, Cellular Evolution. This material was omitted from this paperback. Although it described some of the marvelous intricacies of the cell, it was actually a "design chapter" and not replying to specific evolutionary claims.
Chapter 26 - Paleomagnetism. The entire chapter will be found on our website.
Chapter 30 - The Scopes Trial. Only a brief paragraph of this excellent coverage is in this paperback (Chapter 1).
Chapter 31 - Scientists Speak. Only a few of the large number of statements by scientists and evolutionists are included in this paperback.
Chapter 34 - Evolution and Education. Only a few paragraphs (on opinion polls) are in this paperback (Chapter 1).
Chapter 35 - Archaeological Dating. The entire chapter will be found on our website.
Chapter 37 - Philosophy of Evolution. *Karl Popper is the leading "evolutionary philosopher"; and his "testability" definition of true science rules out evolutionary theory.
Chapter 38 - Fallacies of Evolution. Fallacies of logic are discussed here; and they apply perfectly to evolutionary claims.
Chapter 39 - Chronology of the Ancient Near East. The researcher might find this list handy. An approximate list of dates is given, going back 6000 years.
Chapters 4 - Matter and Stars, last part on stars, galactic systems, and a section on space travel is omitted.
Also omitted from this paperback are nearly all the large collection of material in the following chapters in the 3-volume set and in our website: Chapters 8 (The Earth), 12 (Plants), 16 (Invertebrates), 20 (Amphibians and Reptiles), 24 (Fish), 28 (Birds), 32 (Marsupials and Mammals), 36 (Man), and 40 (More Wonders of Design). These are all "design chapters," and show what is actually the most powerful argument of all for Creation: the "argument by design." The wonders of nature not only testify to the fact that evolutionary claims and mechanisms are fallacious, but they clearly point to the fact that they were created by an Intelligence with massive capabilities. These design chapters essentially consist of a large number of "nature nuggets," facts about some of the many astounding things in nature which testify to the Creatorship of God. The "argument by design" is actually the most powerful evidence that God is the Creator.
The following information, not in this paperback, will be found at the back of both the 3-Volume set and our website collection:
Biographies of Creation Scientists
Creationist Books (Scientific aspects)
Books by Evolutionists against Evolution
Creationist Books (Biblical aspects)
Evolutionist Periodical Articles

EVOLUTION COULD NOT DO THIS
The water ouzel (oo-zul) looks like a normal robin. It has no webbed feet or fins. But, flying to a rock on the edge of a river, it jumps in and swims underwater—even when the current is very swift. Land on the river bottom, it turns over stones and eats water creatures. Then it flies up and out of the water. When it is time to prepare its nest, the ouzel flies through a waterfall and builds it on mossy rocks behind that cascading flood of water. Each time it goes to and from the nest, it flies through the waterfall.
The white-collared swift of Central America is a totally different bird, yet sleeps and nests behind waterfalls, which can fly 80 miles per hour. It catches insects on the wing, and flies over a mile up in the air.
EVOLUTION COULD NOT DO THIS
Everything in nature is too astounding to simply call it the result of unthinking, random "evolution" of atoms and chemicals.
The queen ant produces worker ants which are sterile and thus unable to pass on improvements to offspring—nor receive them from their ancestors! How then could the worker bee evolve? The queen produces all the bees. (More on this in chapter 24.)
Cats descend trees tail first, but leopards survive just as well as the only member that of the cat family that descends head first. Why then did the others "evolve" the pattern of going down tail first?
Evolutionists maintain that feathers evolved for the purpose of flight. Why then do such birds as ostriches and penguins not fly? How can bats fly, when they have no feathers?
Why do insects and birds which are in identical environments—have different colors?
Beavers do not have to make dams to survive. There are beavers in Europe which never make them. But beavers in America do amazing things. A beaver cuts down trees, limbs them, and then builds dams across streams, making ponds. The creature builds canals to float the timber down to the pond it is making. Sometimes large stones are placed as part of the foundation of the dam. Eventually, the dam may stretch to as much as 300 feet [914 dm] in width, and be from 6 to 8 feet [18-24 dm] in height.
The weight of water, held back by those dams, can be immense, so the beaver will, when it thinks it necessary, prepare an upper and lower dam to take pressure off the main one. This helps counterbalance the water pressure in time of heavy rainfall.
The upper dam is higher up in the valley above the main pond. Sensing when there is danger of a future flood, the beaver makes that higher dam. The upper dam will always be constructed oversize, so it can hold an extra large amount of water.
The beaver’s lodge is made in the main pond and is placed half in and half out of it, with two entrance holes, leading into tunnels usually 7-10 feet [21-30 dm], which open underwater into dens, made of earth, mud and sticks, just the right size for the family: 7x8 foot [21x24 dm].
