There was no talking donkey in the Bible, if you read it, it says The Lord did the talking.
And what's this about a talking lizard? That's not in the Bible, either...
"Am not I thine ass,"

Numbers 22
28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.
30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

That depends on what you read.

New Living Translation
Then the LORD gave the donkey the ABILITY to speak. "What have I done to you that deserves your beating me three times?" it asked Balaam.

International Standard Version
That's when the LORD ENABLED the donkey to speak. She asked Balaam, "What did I do to you that you would beat me in the space of only three footsteps?"

GOD'S WORDŽ Translation
Then the LORD MADE the donkey speak, and it asked Balaam, "What have I done to make you hit me three times?"

Actually I'm looking at the far side of the room and I can't see any air. It is fair to say that air can be invisible.

Science can't even create life.
It can't create gravity either, but that's not a valid criticism of the theory of gravity.

Why should we believe them when they say that they know the origin of life?
When did they ever claim that? They didn't. What they have is a hypothesis which fits the facts. Unlike creationists who claim to know everything while actually knowing either very little, or making claims contrary to reality, science has never claimed to know the specifics of how abiogenesis occurred. But they do know it did occur since life is in fact, here.

Well technically it was a lizard until God punished it for the whole Adam and Eve thing, and chopped of his legs and forcing him to crawl on his belly until the end of time and eat dirt. THEN it was a snake.

Indeed, it doth appear that it was not so much The Lord speaking, but rather The Lord giving the donkey the power of speech, like He did with humans.

And lizards.

Oh, and parrots. See, why didn't they make the lizard a parrot instead? That would have been far more feasible.

Which is a bit unfair if you ask me, since the whole thing was God's fault anyway.

All snakes are serpents but not all serpents are snakes.

Putting together the pieces of a 1.8 million-year-old skull from the country of Georgia has led researchers to a surprising conclusion: Specimens that supposedly represent several early human species might be merely different-sized individuals from the same species.

They are such trivial things compared to creating the universe, I'm sure your god won't mind a bit.

Actually the evidence already provided DOES go against your claims. The fact that you not only ignored it but didn't even understand a single word of it is rather telling. It's not just simple time factors that's a problem, it's the massive massive inbreeding which leads to inevitable population decline. And that's not a tenable position when you only start with 8 people, half of which are already related. And even worse for the animals who had only two.
In short, you're talking out your azz. This is not a problem. Just say Goddidit with magic and all your problems will be solved.
Here's your stupidity exposed again so all can see the torrential flood of illogic.
