Apparently a new species of felid has been discovered in Sardinia recently, called the “cat-fox” by locals because of its size and tail, it was known to exist for many years but only recently has it been identified by scientists, it’s very reclusive by nature, being nocturnal and possessing an extremely small population of only 10-16 individuals. Sardinian folklore tells tales of this “cat-fox” sneaking into pastures at night and attacking the udders of ewes and goats. Efforts are underway to protect this mysterious new species of cat, er, “cat-fox.”
I’ve had to deal with this particular piece of creationist claptrap so many times I’ve decided to write this refutation once and for all and be done with it. Abiogenesis is not evolution, it never was, it never will be. Evolution only deals with how living beings change over time, note that in order to qualify as “living,” one has to be alive. The theory of evolution does not concern itself with abiogenesis, that’s a completely different field of study not even belonging to biology, abiogenesis is properly chemistry, not biology.
If one happens to feel the need to make believe that a god created life on earth but allowed life to evolve after that, go ahead, evolution does not conflict with such a belief because it only deals with what happens after life has originated, not before it. One final thing, cars are irrelevant and bringing up how cars need to be intelligently designed and how they don’t evolve is a strawman, cars aren’t living beings that reproduce, metabolize, and possess a genetic code. Piss off.
