Johnson shocked the academic world in 1991 with his book Darwin on Trial. Knowing that it is the unpardonable sin in academia to oppose evolution, Johnson courageously and with the precision of a trial lawyer demolished Darwinism by demonstrating that it would not stand up in court. Johnson indicted his fellow academicians with having “abandoned the truthful and accurate reporting to which science has traditionally been committed in their zeal to extirpate and dismiss religion from public life.”
If evolution were true, there would necessarily have been literally billions of intermediary stages filling the fossil record. Imagine the millions of tiny steps it must have taken over millions of years to develop lungs from gills, the stomach and digestive system, eyes, kidneys, the brain and nervous system throughout the body, the heart and bloodstream, sperm and ovum for mammals, the egg and its shell for birds and reptiles, etc. Yet not one of these “missing links” has been found!
And what about instinct? Evolution has no answer. Even if the bat’s sophisticated radar system suddenly appeared by chance, who taught the first mutated bat to use it? How many millions of Arctic terns drowned before the first one, by chance, learned to navigate thousands of miles across the ocean? How many salmon lost their way in the ocean and never made it back to spawn before this uncanny instinct was developed? How many millions of spiders starved before the amazing mechanism for making webs suddenly chanced itself into existence—and who taught that unique mutated spider how to make a web? How many eggs of all manner of birds rotted before the instinct to hatch eggs developed, and how was it learned and passed on?
