Snail Changes Outpace Evolution's Slow Crawl
by Brian Thomas, M.S.*
Scientists observe many changes to animal physiology that occur too quickly to fit the slow and gradual concepts favored by classical Darwinian evolution. An illustration of this type of rapid variation is the ever-growing list of dog breeds, which proliferated to over 150 from only a few dozen strains in just a couple of centuries. Now, the size of certain Atlantic Ocean snail shells is providing further evidence for speedy diversification within species, having actually increased by an average of 22.6% over the past century....

Though I appreciate all these articles,
I really don’t need the world to validate
This is why I don’t argue on these threads.
i’d be glad to go on this ping list. thanks.
Thanks for the ping!
We are validating what God has said about this world. If He said that He evolved us over millions of years, that would be what Christians would expect to find as well. But He didn’t say that. He said he created the world in six days, and that he created all the ancestral organisms fully formed and fully functional, including man.
Welcome aboard the HMS CREATION!
All the best—GGG
thanks and soli deo gloria
Amen to that brother!
Exactly. Why try to support non-scientific beliefs with science?
Does that include behemoths with bronze bones, or just bones like brass?
You said god evolved us for over a million years.. Yet you believe that Earth is only 6,000 years old. Isn’t that contradictory???
Oh, make no mistake, I don’t believe the self appointed “scientists” that argue on these threads have any other agenda than to “prove” that God doesn’t exist and didn’t create the universe.
I just don’t need a worldly justification for my belief that what He tells us is truth.
EXACTLY. Science may tell us “HOW”. Faith tells us “WHY”. Evolution no more denigrates God than my making a poor attempt at a pumpkin pie disproves the existence of Marie Callender.
In fact, I posit trying to twist science and natural phenomenon in ways to “prove” that same science is wrong is not just logically wrong, but spiritually misleading. A real observer, a real scientist only becomes more and more awestruck by the inter-relations of the laws of nature and how it all really works together.
And ultimately, if not denigrated as a Christ-hating “evo-scientist”, will come to understand that something, or better Someone, created it all with a master plan. This realization does not suddenly make the science learned and studied wrong; it helps explain the why that goes with the how.
I didn’t say he evolved us, I said “If He said that He evolved us over millions of years, that would be what Christians would expect to find as well. But He didnt say that.”...big difference.
Evolution is false because it has been observed, and it's happening to fast.
Um.... unless this guy has detected the Hand of God directing these changes, he’s not doing anything more than lending support to the idea of some sort of punctuated equillibrium.
Not if you're counting in God years....
The author speaks of variations within a species. Not inconsistent with evolution of new species which usually is considered slow and gradual but also has certain hypotheses for speedier evolutionary changes to happen.
I must have missed that part of the bible. Please enlighten me as to the passage. thanks.
