When the wolf becomes a parakeet we can talk.
That is the most illogical argument I have heard. Obviously you did not have the chance to study and read books on evolution. Evolution is not a magic show. It happens in an orderly fashion. Species which evolove from another species are closely related genetically and appearance to the prior species. The reason they evolve is to adapt to changing conditions in their environment. A wolf can evolve into a German shepherd dog due to change in survival conditions. The change is subtle and not drastic. We have a Lhasa Apso dog which weighs only 10 lbs. But it still has a lot of characteristics of a wolf such as bonding with its pack (which are us, people in the family), extremely similar skeletal structure, subservience to the Alpha male (me) in the pack, undying loyalty to the pack, and same genetically as wolves. Did yo know that Chimps and humans have 99.5%+ similar genes? But not so with parakeets.

Evolution is not a magic show
By a process of random trial and error, with many swooshes of the magic chance fairy's sparkly natural selection wand, banana-eating monkeys accidentally learned how to drive, prove the quadratic residue theorem, and build cathedrals.

Well then chimp chess players should on average fall only 1% short of human ELO ratings.
But not so with parakeets.
So what's the point? That parakeets didn't evolve? That they came from outer space?

(<<== Click here to learn about Evolution!)
When God created something He declared it very good. When something is very good it stands to reason that the same overall structure would be used for something else. That does not demand that one of those very good species evolved into a different species. If you want to believe that one species evolves into a different species I wont even attempt to stop you. Ill just retain my belief that when God said He created each after its own kind He spoke truth and take Him at His word. That word was spoken approximately 6700 years ago so if you want to cram some kind of evolution into that time frame have at it. Ill simply discount whatever you say from now on pertaining to anything scriptural.
