WHERE DARWIN’S EVOLUTION WENT WRONG 04/30/2008


By Moody Adams
“When Darwin went to the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador, he noticed that island finches had developed a variety of beak sizes, and he speculated on how that happened” reports Answers Magazine. “His observations influenced his later development of evolutionary theory, including the teaching that one animal evolves into another.”

“In 2005 a research group that had been studying Galapagos finches for about 30 years declared that they had actually observed evolutionary beak changes occurring in the wild. (Science, 313(5784):224–226, July 14, 2006). Because Darwin did not have 30 years of observation and could only speculate, this new study led to blaring headlines, like “Darwin was right.” (Los Angeles Times, p. A-21, July 15, 2006).”

Sure creatures adapt. When I wear shoes too tight my foot adapts by growing a corn. This is not evidence my granddaddy was an ape. If he had been I would not have fallen out of a tree and broken my arm.

Science is th study of "observable and repeatable events." Evolution is a theory that should be taught in philosophy class.
