Whenever Faith gets on an airplane, she goes up to the cockpit and tells the pilot he's flying all wrong. She tries to get him to turn off the engines because it makes it too windy for the angels who are holding up the wings.

You state that it's not falsifiable. Why? I've given you examples.


That's standard creationist argument:
Step 1. "I'm going to prove A."
Step 2.
Step 3. "I have just proved A."

It also works for conservative politics:
Step 1. "I'm going to build a wall."
Step 2.
Step 3. "Look at the wall I built."

They mean nothing if there is no way to even imagine how you could get genetically from one to the other.


That's just silly. Changing one DNA molecule to another is no different from changing "debit card" to "bad credit".

Re: Ordinary selection of built in variation is not species to species evolution

A biblical "kind" may refer to a phylum.


The Bible uses the word "kind" pretty loosely, much like we do. "What kind of dog is that?" (Dogs are not a phylum.)

Compare

quote:
Genesis 1:24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so.
with
quote:
Genesis 7:13-14 On the very same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, they and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, all sorts of birds.
Note the equivalence of kinds and sorts.

Just curious ... how would you describe my "god creation fantasy", exactly?


That seems fairly descriptive already.
