Peppered Moths Change to Pygmy Grasshoppers!

"Evolution More Rapid Than Darwin Thought" was the headline that accompanied a story this week on the evolutionary website ScienceDaily. According to the story, "It has been the accepted view among evolutionary biologists since Darwin published his Origin of Species in 1859 that measurable evolutionary changes occur slowly, often taking hundreds of generations. This view may now be about to change."

And why is it about to change? Because Magnus Karlsson, a doctoral candidate at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, wrote in his dissertation that the color patterns of pygmy grasshoppers can change very rapidly. He observed that these grasshoppers - which exist in many different colors - are predominantly black in recently burnt-over areas, where birds aren't able to see them and have them for lunch.

What Creation Moments wants to know is this: Why is this "news" and what does it "prove" about evolution? Had doctor-to-be Karlsson discovered a grasshopper that had changed into a salamander or a beetle, now that would have been news! But just because there are more black grasshoppers in burnt-out areas proves only one thing - that evolutionists are still fond of using the ancient and discredited peppered-moths story that still contaminates many school textbooks today.

Creation Moments challenges ScienceDaily and doctor-to-be Karlsson to show us one undeniable case that proves macro-evolution to be true. Just one, that's all we ask! And it's what we've been waiting for ever since Creation Moments opened our doors 47 years ago.
