I did not read every post in this forum so forgive me if I am a little off subject here. I just wanted to comment on this particular quote. I just noticed that there is not one single reference to a species evolving into a completely different species. I know its an old question but it has yet to be answered. Is there any example anywhere in recorded history of one species mutating into a fully separate species? I am willing to bet I won't get a single straight answer referencing an actual recorded event.
Since examples have been given by other posters, I'd just like to point out a strange inconsistency in creationist rhetoric.
Let's hear it from creation.com, in their list of "Arguments we think creationists should NOT use".
‘No new species have been produced.’ This is not true—new species have been observed to form. In fact, rapid speciation is an important part of the creation model.
So, could you guys sort this out among yourselves?
According to you, new species don't arise, and this is a creationist argument. According to creation.com, new species have been observed to form, and this is "an important part of the creation model".
So some creationists say that this doesn't happen, and some say that it does, but all creationists claim that whatever happens it supports creationism.
Can any of you give me the name of an animal that started as one animal, then became a completely different animal. As in catfish becomes seagull, or frog becomes sloth, or termite becomes turtle.
No-one, of course, claims that any of these things have happened.
Nope, I am very confident that you all will point out the millions of examples, but not actually name a single one. Why? Because the best you can do is find a bunch of similar fossils, or disfigured fossils and line them up so they look like one came from another.
Please do not tell us falsehoods about what we can and can't do.
I can do the same thing to prove that Beach balls come from peas.
No you can't.
Actually say the names of the animals and the records showing the evolution. Not lined up fossils but an actual recorded incident.
So, you want us to provide a "recorded incident" ... of something that we say takes millions of years.
Well then, I'm sorry, but we can't give you any evidence proving that we're wrong. This is because there is no evidence proving that we're wrong. This is because we're right.
