Natural Selection or New Kinds?

Posted on January 18, 2009. Filed under: Creation, Science | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Plants and animals were originally created with large gene pools within created kinds. A large gene pool gives a created kind the genetic potential (the potential to produce a variety of types within a kind) to adapt to a variety of ecosystems and ensure the survival of that kind of organism through natural selection.

Genetic potential can best be understood by observing the large number of dog breeds. There are many shapes, sizes, and colors of dogs, illustrating the tremendous genetic potential in this kind of animal. Other kinds of plants and animals have similar potential to produce variety within a created kind.

Natural selection can only operate on the genetic material already present in a population of organisms. It cannot create new genetic information and subsequently change one kind of organism into another. You cannot mix a dog with a cat as they are two different “Kinds of Animals” but you can mix a German Shepard with a poodle, although that would be something quite funny to look at, it is possible. You have a “Gerpoo” your own unique breed! It is still a dog!

Another good example is a Liger. A cross between a lion and a tiger. Is this evolution? NO its crossbreeding with its own “Kind” the cat family. But you could keep liger’s with ligers and eventually you would have hundreds of thousands of ligers world wide that future evolutionists would claim is evolution!!
