My point appears to be that you got caught dispensing erroneous information based on your ignorance of a subject. Corroboration appears in the form of your arrogant response to backfill your weakness. I am not stating that. There is a difference between using the surface of the skin to take up oxygen and a plumbing system of tubes designed to do the same thing. Clearly you know little of biology. This leads me to wonder how much more you know so little about. I would also note that you like to twist words and spin. A trait I have found to be typical of used car salesmen, pornographers and creationists posting on this forum.<quoted text>
"most insects breath through a trachael system that starts on the surface of the body as openings called spriracles"
And your point?
You are clearly stating that insects breath through their surface (skin) of their body's. they clearly do not have " nostrils with the breath of life (Genesis 6:17, 7:14-15, 22). "
So why is it that you claim that I need to brush up on my entomology?
Noah was commanded to take into the ark all the animals on land in whose nostrils was the breath of life (Genesis 6:17, 7:14-15, 22). There is no reason to believe that all the varieties of insects were on the ark because they breathe through their skin and do not have nostrils. They could have survived on floating matter or by burrowing in the mud. Some of the insects may have been on the ark in the fur of the animals or in nooks and crannies of the ark. The Bible does not teach that they had to be on board.
Now I will point out to you what you need to brush up on. These fish you talk about, here let me quote you "Genetic and molecular evaluation of these fish species reveal that they all developed from a single ancestor species"
And that my boy is the definition of a "Kind" macro evolution is one kind changing to another kind. No macroevolution happened here just microevolution.
Again, you need to brush up on your entomology for a number of reasons, not the least of which is how they respire. Since it is clear you are in an area where your knowledge is lacking, I will restate the point that breathing through the skin is not the same as breathing through openings in the skin. Animals like amphibians,(toads, frogs and salamanders) can breath by oxygen absorption through the skin. In fact, some salamander species do not have lungs. This is what your terminology means when you say breathing through there skin. You wrote it as if it were a fact when ascribing that ability to insects. It is not. Oxygen enters an insect through holes on the body surface much like that one in the middle of your face. Do you understand yet or would you like me to try even simpler terms?
Even after being educated by a professional, you continue to make the same error in describing insect respiration. That sort of behavior would leave one to wonder what else you are capable of willfully maintaining in error.
You really like to double down on your ignorance don't you. While it is possible for some species to survive as you say, some simply could not. In fact most could not. What do you suppose that they would eat while hunkered down in a corner of the yak pens on the ark?
I see. You are truly amazing. When you can't refute something. Redefine to a point that you can refute it. I think you would make a great pimp.
That would be macro evolution. You can spin it all you want Nancy, but it is what it is by the biological definition that you apparently can't break under normal means.
Debbie, it has been a pure pleasure conversing with someone of your ability. I shall have to wash my monitor three times just to get the taint off it.
