Will add more to this. Currently heading home for the day.--TimS 17:05, 11 May 2007 (EDT)


Hi there, I'm concerned about the implicit support here for the unproven and frankly morally corrupt theory of evolution on this page. The opening paragraph, and especially the picture, suggest to the reader that living animals of completely different species are related to each other by direct ancestry.

The image at http://conservapedia.com/File:Cladogram.gif falsely claims that fish, lizards, mice and cats all have the same ancestor, when in fact, it specifically states in the Bible, "[a]nd God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." (Genesis 1:20) and, "[a]nd God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so." (Genesis 1:24).

Clearly hagfish and perch (beasts of the water) and lizards, mice and cats (creeping things and beasts of the Earth) were first created by God on seperate days, they did not magically transform from a common ancestor, an idea which I think you will agree is preposterous.

What's worse, this central point of the evolutionary agenda is just presented as fact. Surely this is the kind of Godless liberal bias which should be avoided.

I have therefore undertaken to alter this article a bit to at least include the possible debate from a Biblical perspective which is in keeping with strong Christian Conservative values.

Any queries or criticisms please address on the talk page. BiblicalGent 01:42, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

Wow, I was just in the middle of editing the article and it looks like somebody beat me to it! Unfortunately I clicked the wrong button and lost most of my changes, but it looks like the new version is more in line with proper values. BiblicalGent 02:22, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

I've just added a little bit more and done a bit of tidying up. I'm going to create an article about the Linnaean system of taxonomy, which is the accepted alternative to the evilutionist phylogenetic one (which is gaining ground in science). BiblicalGent 02:30, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

Cancel that last, it turns out it already exists. I've just modified it a bit to remove evolutionist bias - although fairly good, it suffered from some of the same problems as this one did BiblicalGent 03:21, 8 August 2012 (EDT)
