An aura of mystery surrounds the Galápagos Islands, located off South America’s coast in the Pacific Ocean. Why are so many species of animals found only on these islands? Why do they play such a prominent role in the debate over origins?
As creationists, we must frequently remind detractors that we do not deny that species vary, change, and even appear over time. The biodiversity represented in the 8.7 million or so species in the world is a testament, not to random chance processes, but to the genetic variability and potential for diversification within the created kinds.
Before the time of Charles Darwin, a false idea had crept into the church—the belief in the “fixity” or “immutability” of species. According to this view, each species was created in precisely the same form that we find it today. The Bible nowhere teaches that species are fixed and unchanging.
While biologists debate what constitutes a species, the Bible alludes to a much broader category, called a “kind.” The biblical kind often includes many different species, but they still belong to the same family.
The Galápagos Islands are a scientist’s dream come true.
Are sturgeons living fossils or evolutionary fast-trackers?
Only time will tell whether Keith Bennett’s “chaos theory of evolution” will catch on, but we’ll at least give his new idea a listen.
Killer whales “are still evolving, and quickly,” BBC News reports. But is it really so?
Some say dogs are man’s best friend, and that seems to be true for creationists as well.
The kangaroo may be an Australian icon, but according to some scientists, kangaroos and other marsupials have American roots.
Rapid speciation (multiple species descending from a single population) is often cited as confirmation of the creation worldview. Can we say the same when no speciation occurs?
You may not have been asking, but some scientists think they have the answer to where small dogs “evolved.”
“Mammals are special,” declares the leader of a new study on animal success rates. Just what does he mean?
In the early 1700s, if someone said something about a “species” or “genus,” it would have had nothing to do with classification systems. So, why is this important today and what can we learn from it?
Evolution observed in nature—again! Will it convince us this time?
Darwin fans fret no more. From the climes of Canada comes definitive proof of evolution in action. At least, that’s what the headline says.
The giraffe, the world’s tallest animal, may not be a single species but instead may contain several species, according to a report in BMC Biology.
Rapid speciation occurs to a butterfly population on an island in the South Pacific.
A recent evolutionary finding from Central and South America lends support to creationists’ post-Flood speciation model.
Researchers have discovered parasites that are helpful rather than harmful.
Scientists from North Carolina’s Duke University claim to have demonstrated, for the first time, “an evolutionary connection between available food supplies and brain size.”
