How we are made and the complexity of our DNA is overwhelming when you really analyse it.

It is truly mind boggling. Trillions of pieces of information coming together to create one individual, billions of neurons etc.

If only everyone would be astonished at God's handiwork and valued life.



Job 5:9He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Ecclesiastes 3:11He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

There is no evidence of anything evolving.

There are plenty of odd or peculiar fossils. These were their own kind and have died out.

When God created the earth, the bible says the earth was 'teaming', definition - 'bursting at the seams with' his creation.

The bible is the truth, and the truth is that since the pinnacle of creation we are in a downward state of decay, species are declining and with so many endangered filtering out today.

If evolution were true, where are all the new species?

Hi there Racoon,


There's plenty of evidence of things evolving, take for example Finches on the galapagos having perfectly shaped beaks for the type of food they were used to eating (i.e. The ones with badly shaped beaks, died out because they couldn't crack the nuts) so the ones that remain all have perfectly shaped beaks.


What there is a resounding lack of evidence for, and I think this is what you're driving at, is evidence for a fish turning into a cat or a fish turning into a primate etc.

Writing off "evolution" as a whole makes you sound a bit ignorant!

If you visit The Natural History museum you see lots of glass cabinets displaying finches. Although there are variants amongst them from start to finish they are all birds.


And your last line, to be expected.

Right. I agree on that point.


I'm just saying that evolution within species is very very well-documented.

i do not want to be rude Racoon, but YECs are not subject to the strict rules of evidence that we scientists are obliged to follow.

in short you select whatever suits your world view and ignore the rest.

as a Christian and a Cambridge Scientist i have to bear witness to your error.

Indeed, it is. I totally agree with you on that point, we can see the evidence for that very clearly, as I said earlier one example is wolves to domestic dogs.

What I am trying to say here is that there is no evidence in evolution for one species becoming another species.

I believe oddities found in fossilised form to be their own species.

ok, we're onto something here. You of all people must be able to tell me then, what do bacteria evolve into if not another bacteria type?
