And God said, Let the fish of the seas crawl upon their bellies out of the waters onto the dryness of the land and it was so. And great behemoths brought forth every winged fowl after his kind to survive the great cataclysm that laid waste to the behemoths. And the earth brought forth hippopotamuses that returneth to the sea and becometh the great whales of the seas which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind. And the great apes would leave their homes in the trees and walk upright upon the savannahs, grasping flint-stone tools, and harnessing fire after his kind and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. (Gen. 1:20-23)
† 1:20-23 Apparently God creating the entire universe in six literal days is a perfectly sane and rational Christian belief, yet the theory that species have evolved through “natural selection” over the course of two billion years is utterly absurd. To the Christian there cannot be enough time in two billion years to explain the diversity of life on this strange little planet. But six days? Shit yeah! That’s fucking doable. Do Christians not comprehend the enormity of such a length of time since the first amino-acids combined in that pool of primordial-ooze? Christians cannot think past the human lifespan in terms of a human’s relationship with time. The earth been created on October 23, 4004 BC is comprehendible, because great civilizations have all risen and fallen over the course of the last 5,000 years. Centuries and even millennia are comprehendible, but when Christians being thinking in terms of ages, epoches, eras, and eons, their collective heads fucking explode. Why do these words Charles Darwin frighten Christians so,
“As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; and as, consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, it follows that any being, if it vary however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex and sometimes varying conditions of life, will have a better chance of surviving, and thus be naturally selected. From the strong principle of inheritance, any selected variety will tend to propagate its new and modified form… There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
Creationists will shit their insane Creationist ramblings into their hands like primitive howler monkeys and toss this shit into the faces of scientists. Why do we not see mutations of a third eye? Why do we not see mutations of six arms? If one looks at nature, one will see virtually all animals, particularly higher animals, have two eyes, two ears, one nose, one mouth, four predominate limbs with five digits is their extremities. Look at X-rays of the flippers of great whales as created by God on the fifth day. They possess five digits just as primates have five digits. Why do great whales need five digits in their flipper? It is unnecessary to require digits in a paddle-like flipper. Primates, on the other hand, require five digits to grasp tree branches, a flint tool, or a fountain pen. Once nature has selected an evolution, it usually stuck for millions of years, unless another evolution proved naturally superior. Lungs proved superior to gills for life on land. Hard-shelled eggs proved evolutionarily superior to laying eyes in water; live-birth subsequently proved evolutionarily proved superior the laying of eggs. Warm-bloodedness proved superior to cold-bloodedness. These changes did not happen over the course of a week. Evolution makes small, incremental changes that take millions of years to see observable differentiations. The eye changes little between higher species. Sure insects have mysterious alien compound eyes, but the eyes of vertebrates: fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals have little differentiation between them. Nature has no need to spontaneously evolve an unnecessary third eye, just to placate Creationists. But Creationists will counter, if humans did evolve from chimpanzees, why are there still chimpanzees. First, humans did not evolve from chimpanzees, but we evolved from a common ancestor. What Creationists refuse to see is that natural selection is not a death sentence to the parent species. Yes, humans outlived (or forced into extinction) all of the other humanoids of family Homindiae, but chimpanzees are a successful species who are following their own evolutionary branch. Satan wants to take a moment an answer that age-old enigma: which came first the chicken or the egg. Evolutionarily speaking, the egg game first, because whatever laid the first chicken egg was not actually a chicken, but a very chicken-like species of bird. It is the chicken egg that includes the mutated genes that will produce the species known as Gallus gallus domesticus.
