Are 99.9% of all animals extinct?

In a YouTube discussion an evolutionist asserted that 99.9% of all animals are extinct.  I challenged the person to provide empirical evidence for this assertion.  The reply came back to me with some journal articles.  I replied again that the author was not providing empirical evidence, just cascade events and ideas for rapid extinctions but it was all based on the assumption that evolution is true.

Trilobites are extinct. Are there a 1000 times more extinct species than alive? No!

Next, another person got into the discussion and claimed that we Christians discount established science and Christians are inconsistent about what we believe.  The following is my reply to the second person:

Forgive me for not being willing to bow down at the altar of atheistic evolution and all its assumptions.  Creationists embrace mainstream science.  We love every field of science because it reveals the greatness of God’s creation!  We love empirical science.  But creationists are skeptical of the evolutionary mumbo jumbo.  It is these fringe areas you call science, built on evolutionary assumptions, that I and other creationists do not embrace.

Am I at fault for asking for empirical evidence for an outlandish claim that 99.9% of all animals are extinct?  That is totally based on evolutionary assumptions, not on the fossil record or any empirical data that I have been shown.
The Bible says it best:
Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Read it carefully.
If I were you I wouldn’t be so quick to judge Christians.  You need to consider the evidence for yourself and think seriously about whether you are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness (a worldly lifestyle).

For me DNA, its messaging, coding and extreme complexity puts evolution to rest.  Even aside from the origin of RNA and DNA conundrum.  Just think of the code needed to produce just one novel organelle.  Like in this thread every code or paragraph of information consists of five levels: statistics, syntax, semantics, action / application and purpose.  They are all in this thread and they are all in DNA which natural causes are impotent for producing or understanding.  For example, DNA consists of codons, three bases code for an amino acid.  Codons are never two, or four or seven, only three — it is a rule built into DNA.  Genes begin and end with beginning and ending codons — this is another example of syntax in DNA.  This is similar to English sentences starting with a capital letter and ending with a period. This is syntax, rules of grammar which are in every usable code.   Evolution has no ability to create, use or understand syntax but it exists in DNA.

But as long as you suppress the truth in unrighteousness, no amount of evidence will break through your walls.
