Well, at least that's clear. However, your statement "reproduction takes place one generation at a time" doesn't add anything to the controversy, and certainly is not evidence to contradict evolution. Quite the reverse. Better to stick to just not believing it's possible, which is honest, and cannot be disproved.crochet1949 wrote:To Me, 'transitional form' indicates that animals can change from one distinct kind to another distinctly Different kind -- even though it supposedly takes millions of years to do such. And I simply do Not agree that That is possible. Because I DO believe that Scripture tells us God did indeed create the animal world exactly as it says He did. Which means that Nothing crosses any boundaries. Because reproduction takes place one generation at a time. The various animals that God created will naturally mate with other's of the same 'kind' and produce the next generation of 'whatever'.
And what does 'common sense' say about fossils, I wonder...So -- the world of the fossils that are found. Obviously they came from something / somewhere or they wouldn't exist. And then the 'experts' publish their findings and no one questions them because , after all, They have done years of studying and know what they are talking about. But Sometimes common sense needs to be applied.
Possibly, but by bringing in weird reasoning such as "reproduction takes place one generation at a time" as an explanation of why evolution cannot occur you very much give the impression that you don't understand.And there Are those who feel that when someone doesn't agree, that it's because they don't have a Proper understanding of the subject area. A Lot of times we Do understand the subject area but simply do Not agree.
That's not a fair description of evolution, so your alternatives are meaningless. That's what I mean by it being important to recognise what it is you reject. Otherwise you're just making up a contradictory point that is not held by the people whose views you claim not to agree with. This is a classic "Aunt Sally" argument.And it will always boil down to -- is Genesis 1:1 credible. "In the beginning ... God...created...' OR did 'things' simply manage to 'get together' without Any help and this earth and the universe managed to 'happen' and thus, 'here we are, folks'.
Two true statements, wholly unrelated to each other, or to creationism, or to evolutionism.We have all these animals and we have human beings. Lots of people Don't like the idea of being responsible to a 'higher power'.
Best of luck!Inauguration Day events are going to start soon. Depending on what time zone a person is in. We can all be adults and welcome in our new President Donald Trump.
