By concluding that biodiversity is fixed! You conclude this the only answer left is GOD or intelligent design because "evolved" is the other answer to the origin of bio-diversity and that answer is not final.
<quoted text>
Biodiversity as being fixed is still a possible answer and have not been ruled out so my conclusion is not incorrect!
<quoted text>
Observation shows biological reproductive species reproducing the same biological reproductive species not the opposite.
You should stop posting in ignorance You have NO idea how the process of evolution works. Please, educate yourself so you don't look so foolish.

It's all part of having choices (free will). To prevent evil from being in this world we would be robots. But instead GOD gave us a choice and the consequence behind this enable people to behave evilly.
It's not GOD creating the evil acts, it's the choices people make.
There is NO such thing as free will. How can it be free will when you must fear the consequences? That is in conflict with the definition of free. I hold a gun to your head and say, "You have free will to give me your wallet or not. But if you don't I'll blow your brains out" Free will means you give or receive without expectation of return.

Your God is said to be all knowing, all powerful, there is nothing that he doesn't know including the future. He can see the pathway you will take, can see your future You can do nothing to change this future. You come to a fork in the road, God see's you have taken the right turn, you can NOT take the left, you had NO FREE WILL. Next!!!

If you're going to borrow the word "GOD" without adhering to the popular cultural definition, you need to define what you're talking about.
Whenever you do that, you'll be defining your religion.
GOD could be creator(s), intelligent designer(s) or a highly advance extra terrestrial civilization that created life on planet earth. The creator(s) is un-identified at the time but seeing bio-diversity as being "fixed" it requires a creator, intelligent designer(s) or highly advance extra terrestrial civilization.

The "ability to choose" exists and this is what I am referring to as free will.

A flat Earth would imply a designer.

Do you believe the Earth is flat?

You're demonstrating a confirmation bias.

All life as we know it evolved and continues to evolve. That is not debatable.

The first five books were written by Moses. For the times he was the equivalent to being a University graduate. The best schools and exposed to the best minds in Egypt.
Then others were written by the prophets of the time. David who did heard sheep at a very young age when on to become a fierce soldier. Cutting off the head of Goliath after taking him down with a sling.
The sling and rocks are still used today as weapons in the region. Then David went on to be a King. The scriptures that he wrote were done as he was King. Then his son Solomon went on to be King and wrote books in the bible.
The Apostle Paul was certainly not a goat herder but a specialized craftsman. Then one book was written by a Medical Doctor.
So this common misconception is really not based on reality but meant to be in jest. A little humor and jab here in there is certainly not going to hurt.[Tipping Hat]
So, you knew all these folks. That's real interesting.

I grew up with a very strong minded Atheist. He was my Father. But the long story short. Dad didn’t die in a Atheist. He came into the light about six months before he died.

Some will not be saved because they have crossed the line with God. Others there may still be hope if they want to be saved.
Thank you for all your efforts, God Bless.......

I never met Abraham Lincoln but I believe what I have read in history about this man. I didn’t know Isaac Newton either but I believe there’s was a man of science and art named Isaac Newton.

So you don’t claim to know any historical figures? Interesting…………

I didn't say you were my judge, I'll ask one more time, your answer is important. I reject Jesus and according to your God he will send me to burn for all eternity, now......Do YOU think I deserve to be tortured forever? Don't keep hedging with your answer it's a simple yes or no question.

What makes you think bio-diversity is "fixed?" The evolutionary process continues, nothing about it is "fixed."

I have answered you twice but here is the third time.

I shall tell you a story of a man who decided he could jump out of an airplane at 5000 without a parachute. He refused to believe those who said he would die.

The man asked pointedly to the other jumpers who had chutes,“Do I deserve to be slammed into the earth at 200 miles per hour?” The others pleaded with him to put on a chute and pull the rip cord.“You have a choice!,” they said.

All the jumpers jump from the airplane including the man without a parachute. All the jumpers were saved accept the one man without a chute.

Doctor, my answer to you is this. YOU have a choice! You don’t have to spend eternity in hell. But always remember, if you find yourself in hell for eternity, who it was that put yourself there, YOU.

Jesus said,

2 Peter 3:9

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

God has given you a way out and you have refused.
