Today's Creation Moment

How Old Is Human DNA?
Genesis 11:8
"So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city."
Mitochondria generate energy inside each of your cells. They have their own DNA, which is passed directly from mother to child. This fact and the known rate at which mitochondrial DNA mutates has led...

It is inappropriate to call small changes within a species evolution. Evolution refers to big changes, or macro-evolution, which is metamorphosis from one species into an entirely different species through random chance and phenomenally outrageous reliance on mathematically impossible luck.

Within a species you see a lot of variation. But that does not validate evolution. That simply shows that the Lord provided all living things with abundant life, each within their proper order of creation.

Just look at the human race. Individuals vary quite a lot within the species, but we are all one species. You cannot say, as evolutionists have, that the Asian peoples and African peoples of the world are different races, just because they have some different characteristics. Neither can you say, as evolutionists have, that the intellect of one "race" is higher than another. Individuals may be more intelligent than other individuals, but there is no physical and mental superiority between "races" of peoples.

Evolution never took place in the human race. We have always been human. And we're all equally human. We share the same DNA and the same heritage from Adam: dominion over the earth.

Evolution is often used as a misnomer for what is essentially varied characteristics within the same species. Be careful when you say the Galapagos Islands show evolutionary changes. All that you see there is God's hand working in majesty among his creatures, each within its own kind, multiplying and replenishing the earth.
