The following material, which is omitted from this book, is included in our 3-volume set and on our website:
Chapter 11, Cellular Evolution. This material was omitted from this book. 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 30 - The Scopes Trial. Only a brief paragraph of this excellent coverage is in this book (Chapter 1).
Chapter 31 - Scientists Speak. Only a few of the large number of statements by scientists and evolutionists are included in this book.
Chapter 34 - Evolution and Education. More will be found on our website than is included in Chapter 31.
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. The last part of that chapter, on stars, galactic systems, and a section on space travel is not in this present book.
Also omitted from this book are nearly all the large collections 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 book, 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)

There are several different blackpoll warblers, each of which travels to different places. The Alaskan blackpoll warbler is an intriguing little creature, with abilities which baffle scientists.
He doubles his weight twice a year, without adding any fat. In the process, his tiny body goes from 1/2 oz. to 1 oz. in weight.
In the autumn of each year he begins a 5,000-mile journey to a far distant land, without the use of any maps to help him. The entire trip is made non-stop by a one-ounce bird!
While still in Alaska, without knowing what the word, "barometer" means, the little fellow waits for a low-pressure weather system to arrive. Of course, high- and low-pressure weather had come and gone throughout the summer, but he knows just the right time to pay attention to this one.
When it arrives, it brings with it a wind from the northwest, and off he goes! Flying steadily for four days and four nights, our little friend flies 3,000 miles and arrives at the New England coast.
But he does not stop there, but flies on and on. However, this time, he changes his flight plan: Heading south over the ocean, he flies higher into the sky—increasing his altitude to nearly 16,000 feet! Most humans cannot suddenly go to that elevation—3 miles high—without needing to recuperate for a time before doing anything strenuous. For 40 hours our little friend flies on and on, without map or compass over the trackless ocean. It is bitterly cold and there is almost no oxygen. Scientists believe that, at night, he may look up at some of the stars for guidance! Eventually, he arrives in Venezuela where he winters over. Next spring, he will double his weight again and make the return trip, following the same route to Alaska—another 5,000-mile journey.
By the way, what do you think he eats in order to supply him with the energy to travel 10,000 miles a year? Bugs that he catches. It has been estimated that, in relation to relative amounts of "fuel tanks" each has, an automobile would need an engine which could provide it with 720,000 miles per gallon—in order to accomplish what this tiny bird does.
Evolution requires haphazard change and haphazard activity, in order to produce the intricate things within our bodies and amazing things that all of us can do.
But what about the tiny Alaskan blackpoll warbler. Who told him to do what he does? Why does he do it?
Each bird has the type of feet it needs. Land birds have short legs and heavy feet; wading birds have long legs; swimming birds have webbed feet; perching birds have slender legs and small feet; scratching birds have stout feet and moderately long legs.
Each bird has just the type of beak it needs. Seed eaters have short, blunt beaks; woodpeckers have long, sharp beaks; insect-eating birds have slender beaks; ducks and geese have beaks fitted for gathering food from the mud and grass.
Birds are designed for lightness, since most of them fly, and many need buoyancy in the water. The bones are hollow and filled with air. There are large air sacs in the body. Feathers enclose more air spaces. All the air inside a bird’s body is heated 10-20oF above that of a human body. This heated air gives added lift and buoyancy to the bird.
Because the air in a bird’s body is lighter in weight than anything else, birds balance by shifting the air load! A bird is able to automatically shift air from one body air sac to another, so that it can maintain its balance while flying. If a bird did not do this, it could not maintain its balance in flight.
A bird has rib muscles just as we do, but it also has flying muscles. When it is resting, a bird breathes by its rib muscles as do other animals. But when it flies, the rib muscles cease operating—and the ribs become immobile. This is because the strong flying muscles must have a solid anchorage on the rigid bony frame. How then does the bird breathe while it is flying? The wing muscles cause the air sacs to expand and contract, and this provides oxygen to the bird in flight; since its lungs are not operating properly due to locked ribs. It tood a lot of thought to design that.
Birds that feed out in open fields will tend to be more brilliantly colored. This is because they can see their enemies at a distance. Birds living in the woods and thickets will tend to have protective coloration, since they cannot as easily escape from enemies.
Water birds spend much of their time floating on the water, so they have thick, oily skin and a thick coat of feathers which water cannot penetrate. Diving birds have a special apparatus, so they can expel air from their bodies. In this way, they become heavier and can stay underwater more easily.
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. Landing 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.
