>------------------------------------ 1) Creation theory predicts that living organisms are too intri- cate in design and too complex in function to be the product of random molecular combinations and mutations. 2) Creation theory suggests that distinct and complex organisms would appear with ancestors in the record of past life preserved in the earth fossils. 3) Creation theory holds that complex organisms would remain distinct (lack of connecting or transitional links) during the time life has existed upon the earth. 4) Creation theory expects that organisms would resist change into new and different basic kinds by modern breeding or genetic experimentation. 5) Creation theory predicts that such change as organisms have experienced would not bridge basic taxonomic units such as families and higher categories. 6) Creation theory anticipates that mutations and microevolu- tionary changes would often would be neutral, harmful, or degenerative. 7) Creation theory concludes that though some ancient types of organisms would become extinct, the fossil record would contain all the basic kinds of living organisms. 8) Creation theory predicts that basic categories of plants and animals would be relatively cosmopolitan or widespread at their first appearance in the fossil record. [Origin by Design, p.426-429] >------------------------------------ At last something solid to approach, maybe. 1. What makes you think this is so? What data do you have to back this up. This concept was refuted by many. One was Dawkins in "The Blind Watchmaker." which you claim to have read. 2. Why would creation theory "predict" the fossil record as we see it. If all organisms were created at one time, then they should all appear at the same time in the fossil record. There should be no "history" of life forms in the fossil record. 3. Agreed -- now explain all the different varieties of dogs (actually different interbreeding populations that we, for convenience, call a single species.) Explain why animals vary, when under creation they should be immutable. 4. What reason would they have to vary? 5. What happened to the old "not bridge species" argument -- or is that one that finally died due to simple facts. 6. It seems to me that creation theory would predict NO CHANGES at all. 7. Agreed, but it doesn't. 8. Agreed, but it doesn't. You have made a number of statements on what Creation Theory predicts, without fulling what creation theory states and the how or why it predicts such matters. Until then what you have posted is meaningless drivel. --- Gerard Trigo
