Science Experiment: Even A 5 Year Old Can See That Evolution Does Not Make Sense

My daughter and I are going through Bob Jones University Press's Science 2 this year. Today we did a science experiment. We made pudding to demonstrate that evolution is nonsense.

I put the milk in one bowl, and the pudding mix in the other bowl. "How long do you think it will take for the pudding mix and the milk to come together to make pudding? A day? A week? A year? A million years?"

To think that the pudding mix is going to jump over into the bowl of milk is absurd, and my 5 year old was able to figure that out. And pudding only has 2 ingredients, milk and pudding mix. Imagine how hard it would be for a pile of screws and metal to get together and make a watch, or boards and nails to magically get together and build a house. Or could a tornado in a junkyard produce a space shuttle? Even a space shuttle is less complicated than the DNA inside a frog, yet we are to believe that the frog came together by itself, even though nobody would believe that the less-complicated space shuttle could build itself.

My five year old understands it.

Reminds me of a Bible verse. Romans 1:22 "Professing to be wise, they became fools."

On a related note... don't you think if any transitional forms were seen (as in, a reptile growing wings and flying) it would be all over the news? I'm not talking about fossils... if transitional forms still happened, we'd notice. We've had people making scientific observations since the Greeks at least... so it hasn't happened where a scientist could notice in 3000 years.

Interesting experiment. Of course, no one is claiming that all the parts of an organism came together in one fell swoop. No more than anyone claims that the space shuttle is built by simultaneously bringing together all of its pieces, and attaching them all at the same time. You clearly don't understand evolution.

I understand evolution well enough. I realize that evolutionists believe that everything happened incrementally, over "billions of years." Of course a space shuttle wouldn't build itself overnight, but then again, something as simple as a bowl of milk and a bowl of pudding mix sitting side by side are unlikely to combine and make pudding even if millions of years were to pass by.

I used to believe in evolution until I learned more about creation science, which makes a lot more sense to me. But since evolutionists and creationists tend to look at the same evidence and come to two completely different conclusions, it is pointless to argue about. We'll have to agree to disagree.

Forgot to add... I was teaching a 5 year old that doesn't even understand sarcasm. Have to keep it simple. ;) If I throw an ant in the trash and she asks me if it's going to get out and I say "oh yeah, it's going to track down all it's buddies and come after you" she actually thinks that I'm telling the truth and gets scared.

You have a very insightful 5 yr old. Wonderful explanation by the way. Anyone taking offense she be whipped with a wet noodle!LOL Just as viewing a building, we know that there was a builder. In viewing creation, we know that there is a creator. Simple as that;)

well i want to know what experiment can i do with a 2 year old child but i want something that the 2 year old can understand
