Answer by Diane Eager To answer this question we need to consider what makes a cow produce milk in the first place. Like all mammals, cows produce milk to feed their babies. Therefore, the first time a cow will produce milk is when she has a calf. After that she will continue to produce milk […]
HYBRIDS: If lions and tigers were intelligently designed, why are offspring of crosses between them infertile?
The original question was: If the tiger and lion were intelligently designed, why are they able to interbreed, but create only sterile offspring? The same is true with horse and donkey, they produce sterile offspring. Why? Answer by Diane Eager We need to start by asking just why we think these animals should be able […]
TESTING EVOLUTION: What are evolutionists testing when they claim evolution is a fact because it can be tested?

Answer by Diane Eager Many theories have been put forward as to why zebras have stripes, including camouflage to elude both large and small predators, i.e. lions and horseflies. The problem with that explanation is that lions and flies both attack other creatures, (including people) but none of those show any signs of developing stripes. […]

For example: social bees can’t survive with only a male and female, but God said the animals on the ark were pairs composed of a male and female. Can you explain this? Answer by John Mackay Some […]
BACTERIA: Isn’t the observed increase in resistance to antibiotics proof that bacteria are evolving?
Antibiotic resistance is regularly presented as proof of evolution in school courses and to the general public, and hardly a week goes by without some health experts warning us about “superbugs” evolving resistance to antibiotics. Scientists have also carried out experiments where they expose bacteria to gradually increasing amounts of antibiotics and found bacteria that […]
The original question was: The olive leaf in the dove’s mouth? Where did it come from if the world had been totally flooded for one year in Noah’s day? Surely all plant life would have died?

ORIGIN OF LIFE: Since all chemicals needed for life occur by natural processes do we need a creator to make life?
The original question was: My biology lecturer has stated that since the early days of Millers amino acid experiment we have discovered natural processes on earth and in stars can make amino acids for proteins, sugars for DNA, complex carbohydrates and on and on, so no god is needed to make life because given long […]
