An Example of Creation Model-Building
Plant divisions appear in the order in the fossil record that is predicted by evolution, making them one of the most powerful evidences of megaevolutionary theory. The same order can be explained by postulating the destruction during the Flood of a continent-sized floating forest. The development of floating forest theory provides an example of how creationism can generate good theories (explaining more data than evolution, while also being synthetic, predictive, and heuristic).
