Greetings, I’ve known Creationists/ID proponents who argue that evolution cannot be true, because an X (germ, monkey, human, etc…) remains an X. Micro evolution is true but Macro evolution is a faith system, etc…
Answers in Genesis seems to hold the same line of thinking. However, I’ve ran across an article where they challenge evolutionists to accept a more radical evolution model. Which seems like a contradiction to the general Creationist/ID ideas.
To skeptics of the Scriptures, producing so many species in such a short time span—short as compared to the evolutionary time span—seems implausible. Laying aside both Darwin’s breed-species analogy and the mitochondrial DNA clock data, critics of young-earth creation don’t see how biological change can happen so quickly. To them, we haven’t witnessed 10 species form in the last few thousand years, let alone tens of thousands.
These skeptics forget the evidence right under their nose. While the origin of over 30 living cat species might appear to require significant morphological changes, visible variety of a much greater magnitude can arise in an even shorter frame of time.
Doesn’t it sound like they are contradicting their own arguments against evolution here?
