    the scientists used evolution theory to make a new vaccine for the "evolved" virus.

    •  Or any vaccine? (3+ / 0-)

      Surely the body adapts to a new challenge by producing antibodies to all vaccines? Adaptation to new "environmental" factors is the mechanism proposed by Darwin as the driving force behind evolution.

      Darwin's "On The Origin of Species" is not definitive - for example his mechanism suggests sustained but steady evolution, discounting major factors such as mass extinctions (what we might call unnatural selection!)

      Come to that, surely they recognize mass extinctions (the Flood) as one of the mechanisms for the present day varieties of fauna. So was God then a evolutionist?

      We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.

      •  No, the dinosaurs were on the Ark (0+ / 0-)

        according to Ken Ham's Answers in Genesis and his Creation Museum.

        Were Dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark?

        In Genesis 6:19–20, the Bible says that two of every sort of land vertebrate (seven of the “clean” animals) were brought by God to the Ark. Therefore, dinosaurs (land vertebrates) were represented on the Ark.
        AiG says that dinosaurs died out afterwards.

        What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?

        Because of sin, the judgments of the Curse and the Flood have greatly changed earth. Post-Flood climatic change, lack of food, disease, and man’s activities caused many types of animals to become extinct. The dinosaurs, like many other creatures, died out. Why the big mystery about dinosaurs?
