Micro Versus Macro Evolution

Our youth leader says MICRO evolution is ok but Macro Evolution is bogus. What does that mean? Is he right?

Moderator - Varietys occur within the species or kinds is micro-evolution. IE you can have various types of dogs. Macro-Evolution is a myth which says all living matter came from a rock.

Mod ... from a ROCK? I thought evolution says that life originated in micro-organisms in water.

Google "Chinese feathered dinosaurs, where are the skeptics?" to learn more about the following line...

**Diapsid reptiles to birds
Yixianosaurus
Pedopenna
Archeopteryx
Changchengornis
Confuciusornis
Ichthyornis**

If you'de like to know more about another line of "transitional fossils" (whales,) read about Elder and Jerry's friend "Bubba" on the "Biblical Evolution Exists" blog.

Donna,
Your youth pastor is correct as well as Donna2277 and Tofurabby....
Google search: "Micro and Macro-Evolution Explained- exchanged life" and/or " Microevolution and Macroevolution- crying voice"

MikeM -- Are you talking about fossils? Fossils have been found for many creatures. It's just how they may figure into the development of species that can't be proved.
---Donna2277 on 10/12/06


Donna; Here is just one line, of many;
Diapsid reptiles to birds
Yixianosaurus
Pedopenna
Archeopteryx
Changchengornis
Confuciusornis
Ichthyornis

Micro-evolution, or adaptation, has been clearly defined by Tofurabby.
"Natural Selection" is what it's usually called. It was part of Darwin's theory. It IS true and has been demonstrated over and over (most easily by bacteria which produce many generations over a short time period).

Macro-evolution is a GIANT leap from there and is unprovable because, among other reasons, it cannot be repeated.

I make my mundane living assorting pliesticine fossils. They exist. The same science that confirms natural selection also clearly shows life did not come from inorganic matter, the mechanisms are too complex, Humes old ontological argument of the watch on the beach. Crick, of Watson and Crick,(who discovered DNA coding) an ardent atheist knew this and tried to explain this by saying aliens seeded the earth. Ok, I agree with that, now who is that alien?

I believe we all came from a rock, the 'Rock of Ages.' I have learned from debating Fundamentalist their consistant answer is, 'A Priori' Genesis 1 is literally right, therefore all evidence is irrelevant, period. The evidence for microevolution is massive, both from palentological, micro-biology and the other sciences.To fundamentalist, 'A Priori,' literal Genesis is right, all else is apostasy. Biology 101, adaptation is natural selection, evolution via natural selection.

**. Macro-Evolution is a myth which says all living matter came from a rock.**

I don't know any macroevolutionist who believes that all living matter came from a rock.

But a literal interpretation of Genesis 1 requires one to believe that all human beings, including Jesus Christ, are descended from a lump of dirt.

Yes, mod, Alan is right.

Even micro-evolution is extremely exaggerated.
---Okebaram on 10/9/06




I think that a great word to describe the micro evolution is adaptation. Over time, a species can adapt characteristics which help them in their current environment. But they do not become a different species altogether.
