If the flood actually did happen, then wouldn't all the fresh water fish have died from exposure to salt water?
Yup.

And then their remains would have been utterly incinerated. Along with everything else on planet Earth.

Well either it was just lucky that all remaining living species managed to end up being sorted geographically, such as all marsupials ending up on the same continent instead of all ending up being washed up on lots of different countries and islands, OR, all marsupials EVOLVED from kangaroos...

But then that would mean the fundies would have to accept that evolution can and does occur.

Just as they would with the claim we all came from Noah's family.

Just as they would with the claim we all came from Adam and Eve.

In reality though the twisted beggers are just big fans of being REALLY close to their siblings, in such scenarios the human race all dies of cancer before it gets off the ground, but then it's all solved by a liberal application of invisible Jewish magic. Simple really.

"There are fish appearing in these lakes as well. Fish eggs cling to the feet and legs of the herons. So as the birds shuttle between old and new lakes, the eggs fall off and hatch."

Darwin's claimed macro evolution which means one kind producing another kind.
Not bacteria evolving into bacteria, birds evolved in to birds and if the bird was a finch the NEW SPECIES is still a finch. insects evolving into insects and if it was an ant it's still an ant and if it was a fly its still a fly.
Turning on or off genes is nothing amazing. God put those genes there for animals or insect ect. To adapt to changing environments. It's a little like an electrician wiring the house so you can turn lights on when it gets dark. It's called planning ahead. Intelligent design. Every time a species has been isolated you claim a new species evolves. The fact is EVERY time the DNA has gotten shorter NEVER new DNA just different switches turn on an off and other genes lost for ever because adaptation is no longer needed. As a result these "NEW" species are on the short road to extinction.
Why do you observe these facts and still believe in macro evolution?
And you claim not to be religious.
No, Darwin never claimed one kind makes another.

You cannot claim that since you have never given a proper definition of kind.

It is not our fault if you do not understand evolution. Instead of making stupid statements why don't you try to understand the theory?

I see all of the tards ran away again.

When you come back here are a few suggestions. Find a working definition for kind, rather than your idiotic proclaiming that ducks are a kind and bacteria are a kind. There must be some measurable characteristic of animals that will tell you whether they are in the same "kind" or not.

same thing, all connected. A monkey is a monkey, and a human is a human. The truth will come out some day about all of this.

People are apes and the descendants of apes, who were the descendants of rat-like primates, who were the children of reptiles, who were the spawn of amphibians, who were the terrestrial progeny of fish, who came from worms, who were assembled from single-celled microorganisms, who were the products of chemistry. Your daddy was a film of chemical slime on a Hadean rock, and he didn't care about you—he was only obeying the laws of thermodynamics.

Again, most of the Christians in the world.

The U.S. is rather unique for having half of the population believing in creationism.

Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN much older.

How can you prove to us that Adam and Eve were real?
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN they were NOT real.

How can you prove to us that Noah's flood was a real event?
Using scientific evidence Noah's flood can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that the 'Tower of Babel' incident occurred?
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that the Exodus happened.
Using scientific evidence it can be PROVEN a myth.

How can you prove to us that Moses was real and that he wrote the Pentateuch?
There is strong scientific evidence that he was not a real person. The evidence says that the Pentateuch was written by at least 3 or 4 different authors and at a much later date then 1400+- BC.

There are proven anachronisms in the Pentateuch.

These anomalies in the Old Testament lead us to believe that Abraham, Lot, and Moses (and others), were not real persons.

What is the common ancestor...?

Is that the same as the missing link?

If not, why is the common ancestor still unknown or missing?

no, it is not. the fact that you use the term "missing link" shows you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. and i and many others here have spent time educating you about why the term missing link makes no sense, so why do you keep repeating it? do you like looking like an ignorant fool?
