Is this what Darwin was talking about when he wrote about speciation and....

"natural selection"

"Darwin came to understand that any population consists of individuals that are all slightly different from one another. Those individuals having a variation that gives them an advantage in staying alive long enough to successfully reproduce are the ones that pass on their traits more frequently to the next generation. Subsequently, their traits become more common and the population evolves. Darwin called this "descent with modification.

The Galápagos finches provide an excellent example of this process. Among the birds that ended up in arid environments, the ones with beaks better suited for eating cactus got more food. As a result, they were in better condition to mate. Similarly, those with beak shapes that were better suited to getting nectar from flowers or eating hard seeds in other environments were at an advantage there. In a very real sense, nature selected the best adapted varieties to survive and to reproduce. This process has come to be known as natural selection."

and then we have this...

"U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to start shooting barred owls"

GRANTS PASS — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to start dispatching hunters into Northwest forests this fall to start a last-ditch effort to save the threatened northern spotted owl from extinction.

The agency on Tuesday released a final environmental review of an experiment to see if killing more than 3,000 barred owls in four study areas in Oregon, Washington and Northern California will help spotted owls— a threatened species — recover. Final approval is due in a month. "

Idiot environmentalist Progressives...

Where you'll at?

"Wildlife Services, a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, was a major force in eliminating wolf and grizzly bear populations in the continental United States. Today, the program spends over $100 million annually to kill more than one million animals."

http://www.nrdc.org/wildlife/animals/wolves/p...

For comparison...a gigantic oil spill in the open water....

BP spill...

"...The latest numbers are: 6,104 dead birds, 609 dead sea turtles and 100 dead mammals, including dolphins..."

Idiot environmental Progressives...we never hear about this...

California....

Opps! Accidents do happen I suppose...

"Since 2000, its employees have killed nearly a million coyotes, mostly in the West. They have destroyed millions of birds, from nonnative starlings to migratory shorebirds, along with a colorful menagerie of more than 300 other species, including black bears, beavers, porcupines, river otters, mountain lions and wolves."

But we hear bout this...

"Construction, under way since April, was halted late last week after a taxonomist confirmed the creature indeed was the endangered meshweaver, named for the type of web it spins. It was added to the federal endangered species list in 2000, along with eight other “karst invertebrates” found only in Bexar County..."

Income inequality stuff...and which segment in America has only an 8 percent chance of reaching the top quintile....

"We find that all of these rank-based measures of intergenerational mobility have not changed significantly over time. For example, the probability that a child reaches the top fifth of the income distribution given parents in the bottom fifth of the income distribution is 8.4% for children born in 1971, compared with 9.0% for those born in 1986."

The Broncos have challenged my last post...

After further review my previous ruling has been overturned.

The Broncos are nothing like the Obama administration. If that were true, Mr. Manning and his teammates would have blamed everything and everyone but themselves for their sh*t performance.

That's the point. Folks like Carol claim to be Christians, yet she doesn't know that Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same God, Abraham. Or that many of the characters in the New Testament are also prominent in the Koran. Like Jesus, Joseph and Mary.
She's so ignorant she assumes all religions have different Gods. She's clueless.
Religion is the most divisive issue among humanity. Always has been the cause of more Wars and killing than anything else.
Abraham is not God, he made the covenant.
