Rebutting Creationist Claims
NCSE advises -- try not to get drawn into a direct debate with a creationist. Sometimes, however, it is important to explain why a creationist claim is misleading or just plain wrong, especially if you are talking with a confused friend, parent, school board member, or interested citizen.
The claims you are most likely to run into:
- There is no evidence for evolution
- Evolution leads to atheism
- There are no transitional fossils or there are huge gaps in the fossil record
