A new report by "Geology" magazine that a newspaper cited as linking humans to the die-off of Australia's "prehistoric" animals really doesn't advance knowledge, either in advocacy of or opposition to evolution, according to an expert in the field and president of a Christian apologetics ministry.
That's because without a firm foundation, the rafters always are always shaky, according to Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis, which advocates for the truth and integrity of the Bible, starting from the first verse beginning: "In the beginning, Godâ€¦"...
As a Christian, I believe in survival of the fittest! It happens all over the place. I just don't believe in evolution. I don't believe that order came from disorder, that evolution can add new information to old genes for a better, more advanced species. I believe God created everything in the universe in 6 days, a few thousand years ago. Survival of the fittest is not evolution.
"The report comes from The Australian, which said the new article in the January 2007 edition of "Geology" says 90 percent of Australia's "megafauna â€“ prehistoric animals such as giant goannas, three-metre tall kangaroos and rhino-sized marsupials â€“ died out within 20,000 years of human arrival."
"The newspaper report notes that while data still is lacking, a variety of animals had flourished under changing climatic conditions, but then disappeared with the advent of man."
The implication being, innocent peace-loving animals were just happily munching away minding their own business, than man came along and upset the beautiful balance of nature.
I would think evolutionists would be delighted at this news. If true, it is evidence of survival of the fittest.
