I believe the variation of the kinds was indeed a form of natural selection, but not going from species to species but within the kinds.
In the beginning I believe God created all kinds of animals at once. Their genetic code held many diverse possibilities.
Noah's ark (the common children's story that you might refer to it as) held many different kinds of animals, these animals adapted to their environment after the flood, but not to evolve into different species, but outward into different kinds of animals within their species. For example, there might have been only one kind of dog on Noah's ark, that dog has since then adapted to give us all the different breeds of dogs we have today. There also might have been only one kind of horse, that soon adapted in it's different environments to other types of horses, for example a zebra. Evolution is not completely wrong, animals can change, but not into other species, darwins finches would support the biblical method of animals changing into other animals of their same kind. It even happens with humans, this is why we see so many variations of things like skin color.
Okay, we have another winner here folks. A christian who knows everything and can prove it, as long as you don't require, you know, actual proof.
We'll ignore that the various breeds of dog were created using the very same evolutionary process he rails against. Bigger, littler, and changed via humans forcing the issue rather than letting natural selection do it's thing. Hence we end up with Fox Terriers and those big frickin' swiss mountain dogs, and everything inbetween. But that's beside the point.
Sure, Noah's ark easily explains how kangaroos and other marsupials ended up only in Australia (not counting possums, which are so creep they shouldn't count anyway.) It is clear that once the ark settled on Mt. Arat or wherever, all the marsupials lined up and headed SE, looking for some distant and dreamy place to settle. And a few evolved to be smart enough to build rafts and s**t so they could get to an island and then go forth and multiply. But the smart ones died off because there was no advantage to being smart when looking for girls. Girl kangaroos don't like geeks.
If we had every single frickin' fossil lined up in a row, from the very first single celled organism clear up to Ron Paul, except we were missing one, creationists would be asking "Where is the transitional fossil, huh?" Since it's not evidence they want, but rather an excuse, their standards are low. The many millions of fossils we've found, layer after layer predictably inhabited by predictably describable species, that indeed transition into others, means nothing to someone who wants that to mean nothing. That the same fossils are found in Africa and South America exactly the way continental drift and evolution would predict means nothing to people who are really really hoping that the world is the way they want it to be.
The naive are good at both thinking they are right and not knowing they are wrong. They treat their made up crap as proof and actual evidence as deceptive. They don't look for chinks in the armor of science, they make them up, and then declare victory. They can do that because they think they are the only ones keeping score.
Spinner198, the amount of actual information you have on evolution is so wanting I'm amazed you know how to spell the word. You want so badly for the bible to be true that you are willing to overlook all contrary information, whether it comes from evolutionary theory, astronomy, geology or any other legitimate science. You believe this, you believe that, and treat those beliefs as fact, something no scientist would ever do. Science is after the truth, and by about the third day of the enlightenment it passed religion in the fact department and has improved on that record every single day since.
You've got nothing and you don't know it. At least you're consistent.
Edit: Added one word. Hope that doesn't put him over the edge.
