Meow Meow - What science tells us about cats
All truth is God’s truth. The reality of this statement was shown clearly in the July issue of the evolutionist magazine Scientific American. The article titled “The Evolution of Cats” tells of its author’s claims to have traced out the evolutionary history of 37 species of the Feline family. This story, like most evolutionist stories, relies on speculation resting on assumptions held up by presuppositions with a sprinkling of facts mixed in.
The article states that “The DNA evidence shows that all living cats trace back to a pantherlike predator that lived in Southeast Asia 10.8 million years ago.”. In taking this quote apart it is clear what is fact and what is sheer speculation. The DNA evidence can be verified as to cat relationships, but there is no way that anyone can know that the hypothetical ancestor was a predator. The reason that the authors put this hypothetical ancestor in Southeast Asia is based on the fossil record, but again that only tells where the creatures were buried, but not all of the places where they might have lived. Of course the date of 10.8 million years is completely invented from radioactive decay that evolutionists imagine that they can accurately date, even though the facts tell us otherwise. What the DNA evidence does fit is the Genesis account of a single pair of cats getting off the Ark and then spreading around the world and at the same time developing into the many varieties of cats that we see today. Variation within a created kind is a well-documented fact, but this variation never leads to a change from one kind of animal to another.
The authors go on to tell a story of the sea levels rising and falling, which also fits with how the Genesis Flood affected the earth. The geologic evidence strongly points to there having been a single Ice Age shortly after the Genesis Flood. This Ice Age would indeed have caused the ocean levels to fall as the glaciers increased and then rise back up again as the glaciers retreated. The falling sea level would have revealed land bridges between continents and islands, this would have allowed for the migration of animals and people after the Ark had landed. This story is one where, when the facts are understood from a Biblical worldview, all of them fit within Biblical history, but where the facts must be twisted by evolutionists to fit into their completely elastic evolutionary story. This article, like an earlier story about dogs, shows that all true science supports the Genesis history of the world.
