Bird migration from the perspective of creationism and intelligent design theory

Oct 16, 2012 Full story: Examiner.com 16

Otherwise, why would birds be forced every fall to fly thousands of miles south to warmer climes, only to fly back again in the spring? According to a literal interpretation of the Bible, God has always punished animals for their sinful nature.

To sum up the entire thing: God dunnit.

There, I just saved you from reading a bunch of pointless drivel. Can we now move onto real science and real answers?

Sightly disappointed and embarrassed.
I have this thing about mollusc on ice and was hoping to find some kindred fixation at work.

Nevertheless, good one Kitten.;)

Ireland has no snakes. Ireland would have been a good place to put the Garden of Eden. Satan would have had to walk a long way to get there.

Hummingbirds could have traveled to Ireland more easy so Satan probably would have made himself a Hummingbird to fly there to get things mixed up.

Hummingbirds are the second largest family of birds with 343 species.
The smallest bird on earth, is the Bee Hummingbird. With a length of only 2.25 inches, the Bee Hummingbird isn't much larger than a bee.
They lap nectar with their tongues. A hummingbird's tongue is grooved like the shape of a "W".
Satan would have liked the W.
During migration, some hummingbirds make a non-stop 500 mile flight over the Gulf of Mexico. They must fly 500 miles nonstop over the Gulf of Mexico to reach their wintering grounds in Mexico and Central America.
And Hummingbirds can see ultraviolet light. A bonus for Satan.

A favorite Bird to watch.

Sea-levels during the last 250,000 years.
Taking the (wrong grammatically and in content) old earth creationism, birds could have done a lot of walking.
Arriving more in less in time to get to the ark.
The middle-east has been of yore a stop-over place for migrating birds.
I did some more language studies. ARK-channel a.o.
Also apparently related to dam building, or in any case erecting wooden structures. Also a lot of the legal terms in the Tanakh and Torah have to do with building or distributing water in regional old languages.

Just out of interest: during max. glaciation we find levels of sea- sediment increased.(extinction and migration due to changing salination-patterns) So not due to flooding.

Apropos moluscs do have some magnetite in there cilia, as well as birds in beaks.(And wherever i suppose cilia and flagella can be found in mammals you would presumably find magnetaite too.)

Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to allow creationism back into the classroom. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artists blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/04/pu... with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.
