Birds are cool and perplexing to our folks, like me in the past, I had all the answers and would not listen because it is spiritually decerned. You are right that people need love not logic on this issue. God needs to show up before the next step occurs if their heart will open up to it. The popularity and acceptance issue is big, egos are big, many of my freinds said bye bye but I knew what I knew was truth. It's really easy to recall truth, you don't have to keep all those wild tails straight! Heavens, whale evolution!! Bears getting in the ocean and loosing their fur!! Their nose traveling to their back!!! Its amazing what these people can think up with enough time!!<quoted text>
They know evolution is made up logic test for every ape mentality that's still around so they could evolve and get smarter.
There is no scientific theory for ID because we already have hard science stuff, biology, chemistry, physics, etc. That is enough evidence to explain the nature of our world. But they keep asking for evidence for a creator as if they really want a bearded old man who punishes every sinner on Earth. If that's the kind of evidence that will make them believe, well let's see it happen. lol.
Anyways, I like your example of a bird. I've observed a bird that can go in different directions so fast that it would violate the law of physics if it were an airplane. Although I'm impressed with pilots who could maneuver in the directions they want. I've seen some made a U-turn coming at my direction just above my head. I've always wondered how how pilots register aerial mapping in their minds during flight almost instantly. The only thing I could do is pretend to fly when driving through a fog. lol
Its like the Princess and the frog; She kisses the frog and bang, he's instantly her prince!- a fairy tale! Have the frog and add a few million years and bang, get your prince, thats science!lol
