PART 1: The Creation Of The Animals
Genesis 1:24-25, “Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good”.
- Each animal was created “according to its kind”.
- Science is the study of observable fact, not theory.
- We see different kinds of birds, animals and fish.
- We do not see animals changing into birds.
- Evolution is not a science, it is a belief system.
- For those who sincerely believe they can prove that Evolution is a fact, then feel free to collect $250,000 from Dr Kent Hovind. For details CLICK HERE
Charles Darwin and his book, “The Origin of the Species”
Charles Darwin wrote “The Origin of the Species” in 1859. What he observed was very small variation in the length and breadth of the beaks of finches, small birds found in the Galapagos Islands, off the Western cost of South America.
Darwin actually noted variation within a species, or variation of a kind! These variations were so minor that later visitors had trouble identifying them! This is Micro-Evolution, or variation within one species of bird, namely finches, which we all see all the time! Darwin need not have bothered to travel to the Galapagos Islands to observe Micro-Evolution, or variation within species! Everyone sees evidence of variation within a species all the time.
Darwin did not observe Macro -Evolution, the changing of one species into another. Macro-Evolution has never been observed by anybody. Darwin observed variation of a species within a kind, namely Micro-Evolution, which is commonly observed in every country in the world.
Examples of variation within a species or kind
There are large numbers of dogs found all over the world. Dog DNA has a gene pool for long legs, short legs, long hair, short hair, large bodies and small bodies etc. Because dogs share the same common gene pool, dogs may be interbred with other species of dogs, and the resultant dog is called a mongrel dog, with features common to both parents.
The same variations within a kind, or Micro-Evolution, may be found with cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, and many other animals commonly seen.
However, it is not possible to interbreed a dog with a rabbit. These different species do not share the same gene pool. In rare cases distantly related species may be interbred, such as a horse with a donkey. However, the resultant offspring is invariably sterile, and unable to continue this new “species”.
Melanic and Typica Pepper Moths
- Another so called “proof” of Evolution, often quoted, is the natural selection of moths in England, according to the colour of their wings.
- In the last century there was a lot of industrial pollution near large cities, and the resultant black coal dust was deposited on the barks of trees, making the trees darker.
- It was noticed that the moths with dark coloured wings, the Melanic moths, were better adapted to their environment, and were better camouflaged.
- The natural predators of moths are birds.
- The birds could not see the dark coloured moths as well as the moths with light coloured wings (the Typica pepper moths) against the dark background.
- This discovery was hardly surprising, but was hailed as a great breakthrough in proving Natural Selection as the mechanism for Evolution!
- We believe it proves nothing of the sort!
- We believe it simply proves that camouflage works very well for moths, and has been used by countless other species of insects, birds, animals and fish.
