How can inorganic matters like soil and water evolve into an amoeba or protozoa?
One attempted to answer by citing the hypothesis of abiogenesis. However, my question was a legal one. It is not wise to answer a legal question with a hypothesis!
A hypothesis is a hypothesis and a theory is a theory unless repeated experimentation and investigation prove them to be "facts." The problem with agnostics and atheists is that they recklessly combine hypothesis and theory with facts to prove their claim about the evolution of life.
If life can come into being from non-living materials, why cannot scientists today, equipped with state of the art scientific instruments and an accumulated knowledge of thousands of years, produce even a single living cell since they know precisely the components of a living cell?
I am not a scientist but I am not as reckless as these insecure pretended scientists! When God, according to the Bible, created the entire universe, He saw that it was very good.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
The expression "very good" denotes completeness and perfection.
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
It cannot be called "very good" or "good" when something is lacking! Salt complements the flavor of egg white.
Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
Even our wastes or refuses complement and satisfy other living organisms. The carbon dioxide we give off is life to plants and the oxygen they throw off is life for us.
A specific creature is created to live in a given environment with the necessary resources to live and reproduce. Lack of food, resources and favorable ecological conditions will not cause the evolution of a specific creature into another. Cattles with a four-chambered stomach and with enzymes to digest the cellulose in plants and grasses are found in places where there is abundant supply of the food intended for them. They will not evolve to be a bear if they are in the polar regions of the earth where there are no grasses. Certainly they will die!
"Ruminants (cud Chewers)
Cellulose is the principal organic compound in the diets of herbivores. Most herbivores, however, cannot produce cellulases, the enzymes that hydrolyze cellulose. Exceptions include silverfish, earthworms, and shipworms. Other herbivores, from termites to cattle, depend on microorganisms living in their digestive tracts to digest cellulose for them. The digestive tracts of ruminants (cud chewers) such as cattle, goats, and sheep are specialized to maximize the benefits of their endosymbiotic microorganisms. In place of the usual mammalian stomach, ruminants have a large, four chambered organ. The first two chambers, the rumen and the reticulum, are packed with anaerobic microorganisms that break down cellulose by fermentation. The ruminant periodically regurgitates the contents of the rumen (the cud) into the mouth for re-chewing. When the more thoroughly ground-up vegetable fibers are swallowed again, they present more surface area to the microorganisms for their digestive actions. The microorganisms in the rumen and reticulum metabolize cellulose and other nutrients to simple fatty acids, which become nutrients for their host. In addition, the microorganisms themselves provide an important source of protein for the host. A cow can derive more than 100 grams of protein per day from digestion of its endosymbiotic microorganisms. The food leaving the rumen carries with it enormous numbers of cellulose-fermenting microorganisms. This mixture passes through the omasum, where it is concentrated by water absorption. It then enters the true stomach, the abomasum, which secretes hydrochloric acid and proteases. The microorganisms are killed by the acid, digested by the proteases, and passed on to the small intestine for further digestion and absorption. The rate of multiplication of microorganisms in the rumen is great enough to offset their loss, so a well-balanced, mutually beneficial relationship is maintained."
A sea lion was created in the sea and shall remain there in its entire lifetime. Lions in land will not evolve to be sea lions nor will sea lions evolve to be lions in land!
GENESIS 1:20-22, 24-25
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Considering the Biblical truth that the Creator created different species with different ecological resources and environment, the idea of "ecological niche" and "speciation" will not apply!
A hungry cow will not eat flesh because its teeth and its digestive system and enzymes were not designed like those of carnivores.
The differences in the digestive systems of different species, including that of the human stomach, discredit then the concept of evolution.
"If you look at the various species in the animal kingdom, each is equipped with teeth that are ideally suited to masticate a particular type of food. Herbivores (like the cow) have 24 molars, eight jagged incisors in the lower jaw and a horny palate in the upper jaw. Their jaws move vertically, laterally, forward, and backward, enabling the herbivore to tear and grind coarse grasses.
Omnivores (like the hog) can have tusk-like canines allowing them to dig up roots. Frugivores (like the chimpanzee) have 32 teeth: sixteen in each jaw including four incisors, two cuspids, four bicuspids, and six molars. The cuspids are adapted for cracking nuts, and the uniform articulation of the teeth enables the frugivore to mash and grind fruits.
On the contrary, carnivores (like the cat family) have markedly developed canines that are long, sharp, cylindrical, pointed, and set apart from the other teeth. Fangs and sharp pointed teeth that penetrate and kill, that rip and tear flesh, are a feature of all true carnivores (except certain birds). The powerful jaws of the carnivore move only vertically, and are ideal for ripping and tearing flesh that is swallowed virtually whole and then acted upon by extremely potent gastric juices.
