We don't have any evidence of change since Homo sapiens first appeared as a fossil 50,000 years ago
- Anon, 1985. Life--How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or By Creation? Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc., pp. 86
- There has been plenty of evidence that humans are changing. The heights and lifespans of humans have been changed both by lifestyle and environment in just the last century.
- Far fewer people today have palmaris longus tendons in their arms than did 50,000 years ago.
- In fact modern Homo sapiens first appeared around 200,000 years ago.
- Even if this claim was true it would also invalidate Young earth creationism because that claim also states that the earth is over 6,000 to 11,000 years old.
- There are in fact differences between archaic homo sapiens and modern homo sapiens, thought the differences are negligible. Archaic homo sapiens possessed more pronounced brow ridges, greater post orbital constriction, less mental protuberance (chin), and a flatter, longer cranial vault. Indeed early homo sapiens are believed to existed as far back as 100,000-200,000 years, depending on how you classify the recovered fossils.

- Some fossils are faked
- All human fossils would fit on a billiard table
- Identity of human ancestors is lost in the past
