Land changes, gets flooded, and leaves aquatic animals stranded in lakes and ponds. Barring recent artificial introduction this is why you'll only get certain animals in certain places.

Your 3 BIG Myths:
1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.
2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.
3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.
And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.
"SNAP"
Wow.

You managed to characterise all three incorrectly.

LOL!! Let me guess the paranoid Dan the stalker thinks I must be bohart too? Playing that card is getting old. Besides bohart has been around since 2008, about 4 1/2 years before I even started coning here. But I think it is funny he thinks when someone new comes in the room it must be me.
Paranoia: noun;
1. a mental disorder characterized by systematized delusions and the projection of personal conflicts, which are ascribed to the supposed hostility of others, sometimes progressing to disturbances of consciousness and aggressive acts believed to be performed in self-defense or as a mission.
2. baseless or excessive suspicion of the motives of others

Yes you did, go back and look at the posts being discussed. If you don't see your mistake you either had cobwebs in your head, or horror or horrors for you, Dan Was Right!

And you say you can read context? lol. It is obvious ole paranoid thought bohart was me and then I comment on him being paranoid and he comments back to you "Is it paranoia, when it is true?"

I thought you were smarter. On that thought "I was wrong"

Actually it doesn't violate anything except your religious sensibilities. But hey, don't let your lack of understanding of scientific terminology get in the way of anything, eh?

Belief is unnecessary, the fossil record demonstrates it.

" We were never worms , but we had a worm like ancestor"? did you really type this ? Did you attend the Bill Clinton class on evasions and lying. DNA is a code, a language, an information storage mechanism, there is no natural process known to science that creates coded information.
Actually it's not coded information, it's a bunch of chemicals. If you refer to the code ACGT, they are simply acronyms for the chemicals it's made of - adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine. In short, the "code" you refer to was invented by humans in order to help us describe DNA.

If you're not talking about that code then perhaps you could explain exactly what other code you were referring to and what it is.

As for life creating itself, you have all of humanities acquired scientific knowledge that says it can't happen.
That's the evidence against your myth.
Except what you stated was utterly wrong. Life is created every day via natural chemical processes. You claim what happens now couldn't have happened in the past. Yet you provide zero evidence. Geology demonstrates an Earth without life, then with life. Ergo, no matter how you cut it, life came from non-life.

Actually, many fresh water species of today were results of being stranded as ocean dwellers as oceans shifted and receded.

Nature uses nature to spread life. Take the Grey Herring (or the herring family) that thrive on fresh water fish and frogs ect. They carry a little of those eggs and maybe even very small minnows in their mouth as they fly from pond to pond or pond to lake. When they get there and shove their mouth in the water again some washes out in the water, result is very small minnows or eggs will be put in that water from the mouth of the herrings. I don't have a link for this but I have read about that and also of storms, tornadoes sucking fish and eggs, frogs and eggs out of lakes and ponds as they go over them and then carries them miles away sometimes before they fall back to earth and maybe they end up in a pond or lake that prior had no fish. Google raining frogs.

<quoted text>I can think of only one functional definition of "species". And having too many definitions is better than having none. There is no functional definition of "kind" as used by creatards.

What is a kind? Try to be consistent. If bacteria are a kind then eukaryotes are a kind. Which means that creatards are once again hoisted by their own petard.
I have found over 26 definitions for the word 'species'
