Macroevolution

Macroevolution is a distinction made by some evolutionists and all biblical creationists that separates the change of certain characteristics of various kinds of animals (causing speciation), from the changes that natural selection, mutations, and genetic drift that allegedly, given enough time, lead to the creation of radically different, new kinds of organisms consisting of a single common ancestor and all the descendants of that ancestor. For example, evolutionists have false alleged that birds are the descendants of reptiles and that mankind descended from a common ancestor of apes. Macroevolution has never happened and the earth is approximately 6,000 years old and not billions of years old. Some prominent modern biologists have made a distinction between microevolution and macroevolution (for example, see quotes of prominent evolutionists below).

Dr. Roger Lewin commented after the 1980 University of Chicago conference entitled “Macroevolution”:

“The central question of the Chicago conference was whether the mechanisms underlying microevolution can be extrapolated to explain the phenomena of macroevolution. … At the risk of doing violence to the positions of some of the people at the meeting, the answer can be given as a clear, No.” [1]

In 1988, the prominent Harvard University biologist Ernst Mayr wrote in his essay Does Microevolution Explain Macroevolution?:

Among all the claims made during the evolutionary synthesis, perhaps the one that found least acceptance was the assertion that all phenomena of macroevolution can be ‘reduced to,' that is, explained by, microevolutionary genetic processes. Not surprisingly, this claim was usually supported by geneticists but was widely rejected by the very biologists who dealt with macroevolution, the morphologists and paleontologists. Many of them insisted that there is more or less complete discontinuity between the processes at the two levels—that what happens at the species level is entirely different from what happens at the level of the higher categories. Now, 50 years later the controversy remains undecided.

...In this respect, indeed, macroevolution as a field of study is completely decoupled from microevolution.[2]

The term macroevolution is often hated by ill-informed, militant, internet evolutionists (especially evolutionist poseurs who knew that evolution is lie and an ill attempted escape from biblical authority) because they are unable to demonstrate that macroevolution occurred and they also unable to satisfactorily answer the reasonable objections/questions posed to them by biblical creationists and intelligent design theorists (for example, the 15 questions for evolutionists of the Question evolution! campaign initiated by Creation Ministries International)[3][4]
