I think it would be a great topic of interest, to hear how evolutionists and creationists can explain the fantastic spinal column of chetahs, whereby it keeps their head steady and stationary as they run after their prey. This allowing them to visually have focused sight no matter what terrain they go over.

The two way debate, might give some unique insights as to the difference in explanations of evolutionists and creationists in all the various characteristics and unique traits and structures within the animal kingdom.

Even domestic cats are notoriously flexible
By the way, spelling is "cheetahs".

Why Are Cats So Flexible?

quote:
Cats are so interesting to watch. They have great speed, stride, and can get their bodies into the most cramped spaces, and the most curious positions. There are a few reasons why this is so.

A catís spine can rotate more than the spines of most other animals, and their vertebrae have a special, flexible, elastic cushioning on the disks, which gives it even more flexibility. A flexible spine also contributes to the speed and grace of cats.

When cats run, their backs contract and extend to give them maximum stride. Their shoulder blades are not attached with bone, but with muscle, and this gives a cat even greater extension and speed. It is also the reason why cats can get themselves into tiny spaces, as they can squeeze their shoulders very tightly together.

Re: Even domestic cats are notoriously flexible
No, Im talking about the head stabilization of cheetahs backbones that keeps their heads stabilized, so they can focus their eyesight on prey.

Amazing amazing so called adaptation or gift or multiple mutations, that work.

So the proposed topic is how did this so called special adaptation or gift happen, did their backbones evolve slowly or is there other explanations. Did their eyesight blurrs force it to select a better backbone, so they could catch more prey?

But that is not for us to discuss, it is a proposed NEW topic, that would be easy to elaborate on. The discussion surely also showing how evolutionists differ in their modes of explanation or non explanations. Very important in my opinion.

For even your points of other so called cheetah special unique adaptions or gifts or selected mutations, would make for a very informative discussion.

The Cheetah genetic heritage
Cheetah (or cat in general) genetic heritage seems to be a pretty specialized field, such that I'm not at all sure this topic is going to go anywhere. But I will reluctantly promote it.
