    Very cool picture. Look how long those claws are relative to the size of the animal.

    Most Christians will admit that evolution happens and say that this is an example of microevolution and not macroevolution.

    I believe the diversity of life in our world is a wonderful gift from God. And the ability of life to adapt to changing environments through evolution is part of God's awesome design of genetics.

    This proves evolution....how? It only proves there are new species of animals to be found that we had no idea existed.

    Really? Most Christians admit that evolution happens? I don't believe it.

    You can't really prove the theory of evolution as it's not mathematics. The theory is an explanation.

    If the hairs were real, mammalian hairs, that would disprove the theory; it would show the theory didn't explain heritability correctly.

    The two most popular creationist websites ICR and Answers in Genesis both recognized microevolution.

    Although I think that the distinction between micro and macro evolution is an arbitrary one that has no scientific basis. Answers in Genesis is starting to pick up on this.

    While they still acknowledge the concept of microevolution, they realize the terminological fallacy of using that term.

    I think the real question is what does it taste like with drawn butter?

    I'm game to find out.

    To deny microevolution is to deny what can be visibly observed over the course of just a few years, so would be foolishness at its finest. Macroevolution, OTOH, is only a theory to explain how things happened. Although the Bible doesn't rule out the possibility of God working in that manner, I don't think that's how he worked in creation. But, not matter what, macroevolution is only a theory; microevolution is observable fact.

    But, to whom goes the credit for making things in such a way that they are adaptable to their environment?
