Diversity is expected through evolution. I suspect the flaw here is in your understanding of what evolution is, how it operates, and the expected outcome in reality.
Maybe your assumptions are out of reality!
Evolution is both fact and theory.Theory because it is always changing from new information.*also a hurt to evolution
And it is fact because methods and patterns observed are proven.
Though the question is, has the evolutionary theory really completely explained evolution?No it hasn't.Have they discovered any process of genetics which can evolve anything new?No
Fossils speak of sudden appearances of the kinds of fast paced change not exzactly hand in hand with evolution.
This is perfectly consistent with evolution.
Nature is rich with biological designs which out right deny evolution.
Amounst animals that do are:the bombardier beetle,the giraffe, the gecko, and the humming bird to name a few.
I didn't see anything on the gecko or humming bird, so you'll have to be more explicit.
While we able to apprehend a Creator we can not comprehend Him and that is the problem.
If specific animals do not fit the theory of evolution the house of cards implodes.
Ultimately with animals and fossils recorded not fully supporting evolution the design of the world rests upon a Creator.
I'm going to go with my original assertion that you truly don't understand evolution or its implications.
God damn it, i was about to post a link to talk origins. Way to steal my post!
Was not happy with that quote?
Here is a few more by the same guy!!And others!
"We (evolutionists) have been telling our students for years not to accept any statement on its face value but to examine the evidence, and, therefore, it is rather a shock to discover that we have failed to follow our own sound advice." John T, Bonner
"We Paleontologists have said that the history of life supports (the story of gradual adaptive change), all the while really knowing that it does not." Miles Eldredge, pro-evolution
"...the philosophy of evolution is based upon assumptions that cannot be scientifically verified...whatever evidence can be assembled for evolution is both limited and circumstantial in nature." G.A. Kerkut, pro-evolution
"The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone." T.L. Moor, pro-evolution
"We cannot disprove that it (the universe) was created in 4004 B.C...." George Simpson, pro-evolution
"It is, in fact, a common fantasy, promulgated mostly by the scientific profession itself, that in the search for objective truth, data dictate conclusions."
"Data are just as often molded to fit preferred conclusions." Roger Lewin, pro-evolutionist
"I have come to believe that many statements we make about the how and whys of human evolution say as much about us, the paleoanthropologists and the larger society in which we live, as about anything that really happened." David Pilbeam, pro-evolution
"We do not see things the way they are; we see them the way we are." David Pilbeam, pro-evolution
"...in my own subject of paleoanthropology, `theory' heavily influenced by implicit ideas (assumptions) almost always dominates `data'...Ideas that are totally unrelated to actual fossils have dominated theory building, which in turn strongly influences the way fossils are interpreted." David Pilbeam, pro-evolution
"Racism, as we would characterize it today, was explicit in the writings of virtually all the major anthropologists of the first century, simply because it was the generally accepted view." Roger Lewin
"The problem is that because we know the `end of the story' (that evolution is true), we tend to interpret earlier events as if their sole purpose was to reach that end." Roger Lewin, pro-evolution
"Evolution itself is accepted by zoologists, not because it has been observed to occur or can be proved by logical coherent evidence, but because the only alternative -- special creation -- is clearly incredible." D.M.S. Watson
"Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation which is unthinkable." Arthur Keith
"...there is an important difference between going to the empirical evidence to test a doubtful theory against some plausible alternative, and going to the evidence to look for confirmation of the only theory that one is willing to tolerate." philip johnson
"This situation, where men rally to the defense of a doctrine they are unable to define scientifically, much less demonstrate with scientific rigor, attempting to maintain its credit with the public by the suppression of criticism and the elimination of difficulties, is abnormal and undesirable in science." W.R.Thompson, pro-evolution, in his introduction to Origin of Species by Darwin.
