Pigs are pretty smart animals. Maybe smarter than evolutionists.
I’d like to talk about a point that may help simplify the difference between a creationist and an evolutionist.
A creationist thinks that birds have wings so they can fly.
An evolutionist thinks that birds fly because they have wings.
An evolutionist’s stance is that everything occurs through natural means. There is no possibility of supernatural intervention. Therefore, everything occurs out of nothing. Also, everything progresses in a totally random manner to arrive at the universe we see today as well as the organisms that inhabit it.
The point I am about to make holds true for the evolution of every organism, every organ, every cell, and every organic process.
But let’s use the example of a reptile evolving into a bird.
The reptile has to start with a minute, random mutation. Let’s say its two front legs start to mutate into things that start to look like flappers. The legs would start to change for no apparent reason and after thousands of random mutations that for some reason keep going in the same direction the animal now hops around like its on crutches.
At the same time the respiratory system is slowly and mindlessly changing into that of the avian lung, replacing a lung that worked perfectly well before and still functions perfectly well in the reptiles we see today. And how a lung half way between that of a reptile and that of a bird even functions at all is anybody’s guess. Evolutionists haven’t even bothered to guess.
At the same time the animal is slowly and mindlessly developing feathers.
The same holds true for becoming warm blooded.
Each one of these tiny steps has to have an advantage to the animal in the real world in which it lives. And if it does, that animal is superior to the one before it and should increase in numbers. Every one of those intermediates must be superior in evolutionary status to the one preceding it as well as to the reptile from which it started. The intermediates are superior to the organism from which they started.
Intermediates should be the norm. There should not be “end points” like the end points of branches on a tree that the evolutionists point to. You don’t arrive at birds and suddenly there is an “ah ha” moment. “Ah ha, the work is finally done!”
The world should be a mishmash of stuff that is just evolving…. Into what who knows!
And then this random thing takes off into the air in perfect flight!!
And gosh darn if they don’t fly beautifully!!!
Thanks intermediates. I guess we don’t need you anymore because we have arrived. Never mind that the intermediates were superior to the reptiles that managed to somehow hang around.
That’s the evolutionists’ stance. That’s what you have to believe when you are confronted with a giant, random accident.
Now here is the creationists’ stance.
God wanted animals to fill the sky. He made them perfectly to do just that.
And gosh don’t they fly beautifully!!
He also made reptiles and that’s why they are here today and not replaced by a superior evolutionary product.
And that’s why there is not a mishmash of random mutation going hither and yon in either the real world or the fossil record.
God did not make intermediates because He didn’t need them. And low and behold they are nowhere to be found.
And there is no “tree” with reptiles, mammals, birds, fish, and amphibians at the tips of those imaginary branches that also don’t exist.
There are simply reptiles, mammals, birds, fish, and amphibians.
In the immortal words of Porky Pig. “Abbeddeabeddeabbedea….. that’s all folks!”
