Re: Ape-tooth monkeys
Is god not allowed to use similar materials, clearly this is what he did, manufacturers do this all the time.

Are you saying your god is as limited in imagination and resources as human manufacturers?

Re: Ape-tooth monkeys
No your point is pretty clear. You claim that we see commonalities between various species because they were all designed by the same being. You claimed it was something human manufacturers do. My point is that human manufacturers do this because they are limited in resources and imagination. Supposedly your god is without limits, so why would he get lazy and reuse design elements?
