Breeding corn to get different types is creation?
humans didn't breed corn, they made a new species.

Corn is a kind of plant that has been changed by selective seed planting. The basic structure that carries the units of heredity that is tansferred from the original kind is just producing selected results.

So the corn evolved over 10,000 years huh?

The plant we know as corn is a kind of grass. Over time it was selected to serve up plump grains which are seeds. This kind is like a flowering plant, but it produces seperate male and female flowering parts and the male structure produces pollen while the silks snag the pollen from the wind. It is a flowering grass but doesn't need insect pollinators. It is what it is and it is a chosen kind.

No, it is a flowering plant and it is in a family of kinds. Its potential was in it from the beginning to form the grain and man just brought it out. Similar plants are in this family like the lilie and the banana and even the palm tree and they have what they are within themselves.

It had the ability to become what it is from the beginning and man just brought out the part that they wanted in the plump seeds.

no, it needed environmental pressure to change completely into a new species.

I would say more than just a little, in fact if it were not for selective planting, corn would not exist.

Man did create corn, it didn't exist over 10,000 years ago. We cultivated it using selected seeds to plant
and cross pollinated it to create a new species more robust and desirable as a food.

If you change a plant to make it better suit your needs, you have just made what was there work better for a purpose.
