Don't let "Evolutionists" get away with teaching that all science points toward the "Theory" of Evolution as if it has been proven. It hasn't.
This is YOUR opportunity to support Christian / Creationist Scientists in building a center that promotes, educates, and informs everyone about the reality of God's Creation . . . from a Scientific Perspective.

Frank Sherwin received his bachelor's degree in biology from Western State College, Gunnison, Colorado, in 1978. He attended graduate school at the University of Northern Colorado, where he studied under the late Gerald D. Schmidt, one of the foremost parasitologists in America. In 1985, Mr. Sherwin obtained a master's degree in zoology. He published his research in the peer-reviewed Journal of Parasitology.
He contributes his scientific expertise to a variety of ICR's publications on creation science and is one of ICR's most sought-after speakers. He is the author of The Ocean Book and Guide to Animals, co-author of The Fossil Record: Unearthing Nature's History of Life and The Human Body: An Intelligent Design, and a contributor to Guide to Creation Basics and Creation Basics & Beyond.

'Science' that leaves out God and Creation is useless opinion.
Looks like snakes evolved little or none over 105 million years, i.e. little change in snakes through geological time.
However note this about human evolution:
"BioLogos Author Loren Haarsma Page 50 But just as discoveries in astronomy in Galileo's time prompted to the church to consider other interpretations of scriptural texts that talk about the earth being fixed in place, recent discoveries in archaeology, paleontology, and genetics prompt the church to consider other interpretations of Genesis 2-3." Ref - Cabal, T., Haarsma, L., & Samples, K. (2017). The Original Couple: What Is the Range of Viable Positions concerning Adam and Eve? In K. Keathley, J. B. Stump, & J. Aguirre (Eds.), Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation?: Discussing Origins with Reasons to Believe and BioLogos (p. 50). Downers Grove, IL: IVP Academic.
"Human ancestry and the image of God. In summary: clear trends can be seen over the past five million years in posture, stature, locomotion, brain size, teeth, technology, and aesthetics, with conditions resembling more and more those of modern humans through time. Christians are left to ponder (just as secular paleoanthropologists do) what the cultural, ethical, and spiritual correlates to these transitions just might be. Does brain size provide a clear signal?
What about particular tools, or the use of fire, or other aspects? I understand that all humans are created by God. But I am not sure that it is counter to God's purposes to produce the human lineage as another of the ramifying branches on a diversifying "tree of life."
The human position on this historical branch says nothing about God's ability to select humanity to bear his image-any more than Abraham's ancestry precluded God from selecting him to initiate a special lineage within his redemptive economy, or the humble origins of Mary prevented God from choosing her to bear the Savior of the world.
The hominin fossil record is strongly suggestive of lineage continuity with apes. We will continue to see more fossils discovered; my prediction is that lineage continuity of humans with other hominins will tighten. But our human biological backdrop is overlain with a profound cultural and spiritual dimension, enabling humans to fulfill the cultural mandate, converse with God, and enjoy his fellowship and redeeming love forever."

My observation - Snakes in 105 million years did not experience much evolutionary transformation. Our common ancestor, the shared ancestor of apes and modern man (I call this ape ancestor, Adam-pithecus), those critters evolved rapidly in 6 million years or less to become modern mankind. The evolutionary tree of life is flexible concerning rapid evolution vs. static or little change like snakes show in the fossil record.
