    What are the key ideas of the theory of evolution by natural selection ?

    Darwin’s book is called ”Origin of Species”. No intelligent and educated person would argue that evolution does not take place. In fact The Bible states that it does:

    Genesis 1 NIV

    “11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

    …………………

    24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds:the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.”

    We see evolution take place as bird gets a longer or shorter beak according to where it lives. BUT if new species evolved over a long time we ought to see more transition fossils than fossils of the old species and the new one. That is simply not true.

    Also it has been discovered by math, using computers, that it is mathematically impossible for new species to evolve over time. New species did come forth, but not without supernatural guidance.

    Adaptations are not evolved changes but responses to environment that may not be permanent, and adaptations fall within the existing genetic possibilities. Adaptation (bird beaks) is not how the evolutionary biologist describe evolution. Evolutionist extend the observed adaptations to suggest the possibility of evolution of species over time periods so long that any observation is impossible.



    What has been observed in the fossil record is not evolution but devolution – the extinction of species over time. The tree of taxonomy does not indicate more and more twigs on the limbs, but that whole limbs go extinct so there are fewer and fewer species. We only assume the tree of taxonomy produces more and more branches because the trunk and limbs of the tree are drawn solid. The trunk and limbs represent many more species than the twigs. Metaphorically, the taxonomy tree obscures the observations of the fossil record. The tree ought to turned upside down.
