My example of from wolves to poodles was just to illustrate a point that appearance and characteristics of a species is subject to change. I did not cite that as an example of evolution. The Wolves to domesticated dogs conversion was accomplished by humans using selective breeding techniques. In other words they exaggerated naturally occurring mutations and variations to accomplish the the type of dogs desired. Some were bred for size, others for looks, and some others for specialized tasks such as catching mice in grain storage, herding cattle, or hunting wild animals.

Evolution on the hand happens by survival of the mutants who are most likely to survive changing environments.

Your post did, DID, use the word ‘evolution’ in relation to the example of dogs from wolves.

Evolution presupposes a change in form to create new animals.

A something that changes into something else that is not the original something.

A non-human that is changed over time to a human. Sorry can’t buy into that.

Evolution is a non-starter.

In fact, one example of a form change that bothered me is this:

I have a large snake, about 8 1/2 foot Yellow Anaconda. Near his vent are two spurs, which, if you looked at his skeleton, are connected to bones that could be said to be vestigial legs. That could be said to be evidence of this ‘evolution’ thing that people seem to hold so dear.

Yet, to show how the Bible can show the folly of man, I re-read the account of Adam and Eve, written by Moses under inspiration by the Holy Spirit.

Moses describes a snake that must have had legs, because, due to the serpents lies to Eve, God commands that from then on the serpent would go upon his belly. WHY would God have had to command that unless snakes had legs then? What would Moses have known of ‘leggy’ snakes 6000 years ago, as by ‘evolution’ it would take millions for that transformation?

You may breed dogs to accentuate certain desirable characteristics, yet in the end, they are still dogs. When you can breed dogs and produce non-dogs then you might have some ammo to defend the THEORY of ‘evolution’.
