Speciation Events Don’t Disprove Creationism

Recently I realized there are fundamentalists in atheism just as there are in religion. They literally believe every single word that is published by evolutionary biologists. The scientific journal is probably their ‘holy book’ and they defend it with such zeal that you wonder what has gone into their heads.

Throughout the Judaeo-Christian account of creation, there is always the mention of birds of the air and fishes of the sea not fishes of the air and birds of the sea. This implies speciation. To be [of] something is to have descended from an autochthon of that place. Consider this passage:

“And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.”

A god who creates static or devolving organisms should be a very dumb god. Organisms are specially designed to fit their environments – birds of the air, fishes of the sea, beasts and creeping things upon the earth and even herbs of the field.  Clearly the Bible was talking about speciation. I wonder how that disproves the existence of an intelligent designer.

  1. If animals are specially designed to fit their environments, why do so many of them live very short lives?
    Animals aren’t designed for their environments, they’ve adapted to them over time. I can understand why you would think that they have been designed, you’ve only seen a minute portion of the time a species has been around. But it’s pretty arrogant to assume your specific perception of this as evidence for design, wouldn’t it?


  2. All knowledge comprise some perception and I should be the first to see the admissibility of my evidence. To have been designed to fit your environment includes the capacity to adapt and readapt until there is minimal threat to survival or life. Change is eternal and death, though painful, is part of it.
