We continue to examine the work of authors George Johnson and Jonathan Losos in their biology textbook, The Living World ((Fifth Edition, McGraw Hill, 2008). In their chapter on evolution and natural selection, these accomplished evolutionists begin by (1) misrepresenting the relationship between microevolution and macroevolution and biological variation here, (2) making a non scientific, metaphysical, truth claim that just happens to mandate the truth of evolution here, and (3) making the grossly false statement that the fossils themselves are a factual observation that macroevolution has occurred here and hereRead more

This biblical creationist welcomes water mammals as first land creatures who after the flood adapted to a empty sea. In fact my line is always that these creatures don't make the evolution case but against it. If evolution was true then all or most creatures should be crawling with vestigial bits showing their evolutionary stages from millions of years of action. Yet there are just a few ,or less, critters with actual evidence of previous lifestyles in the bones. Water mammals are the few. they really were on the land once. They have lots of evidence of being first landlivers. Yes bits of bones. Maybe fossils of types a little more like the full land livers. Yet they are the few and still evolution uses them as a example or as a mean. Indeed they make the case against vestigial parts as evidence of evolution. What are the odds of vestigials remaining in creatures? Any math guys around! Robert Byers
