God at the Zoo
Being a science teacher (part-time) at KIU, I have studied about evolution quite a bit, especially lately. Nothing however convinces me more of the utter impossiblity of macro-evolution than seeing real living examples in action. (See below) How utterly creative our God is to make so many things "after their own kind"! They are all so different!
You don't see mixes of birds and reptiles. You don't see half monkeys and half humans. You see birds, you see reptiles and you see apes. All are disctinctly made and separate. Of course you do have varities; even my 2nd graders know this. Is a zebra related to a horse? YES! Of course they certainly came from a similar ancestor, since they are able to breed with one another. (Their offspring are almost always sterile, however.) Their common ancestor was likely taken on the ark before the flood, thus preserving the "horse kind".
What amazes me is that some people still think that human beings from different races come from different ancestors. For example, Maki and I were talking to a friendly man at a restaurant last week. He commented that Europeans probably came from the Neandertals and Japanese probably came from Peking Man or a simlar species. How foolish! (Not to mention that Neandertals were proven to be fully human genetically and Peking Man(kind?) is little less than a few shattered fragments of bones) I told him, "Did you know that the difference genetically between any two human beings on this earth is less than the difference between any two monkeys living in Africa greater than 20 miles apart?" (according to the Discovery Channel special on this topic) That is an amazing statistic that shows that all of mankind must be traced to the same ancestors. Of course, we who believe the Bible already know that. It is Adam and Eve!
I encourage everyone to continue to make yourself aware of the innummerable falacies and outright lies that many teachers of evolution are teaching our students today. It is an outright attack against Genesis and the trustworthiness of God Himself and will have eternal ramifications. In the meantime, please enjoy God's wonderful creation as captured at the Tennoji zoo in Osaka.
