Evolutionists claim that the similarities in life forms are evidence that we all come from a common ancestor. For example, generally speaking, all land animals and humans have the following: one head, one pair of eyes, one pair of ears, one nose with two nostrils, one mouth, two arms/fore legs, two legs/hind legs, and fingers and toes, or paws (for animals). This would seem like good evidence for evolution. But if we use the same observable evidence and look at it from the Creationist perspective, we would expect our God to make his creation using common attributes. Many life forms have similar strands of DNA, and these strands produce certain information, such as instructions for creating hair, eyes, or lungs. This doesn’t mean we are related but rather, God used the same method for creating various types of life.
Compare this to an artist. The artist may use the same types of paints, same colors, same brushes, same canvases, and same brush strokes, but the artist does not reproduce the same picture each time. Although the paintings may have similar characteristics and were made with the same products, this does not mean one came from the other but rather, they both came from one creative designer. Remember that the evidence is based on interpretations filtered through our worldview.
