Unnatural Selection?
Luke 12:33
"Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth...
Just about every public school textbook once included the example of the peppered moth. The moth is used as a prime example of natural selection. Supposedly, as the trees in the English countryside...

Hang on. I don't want to cause waves, but you can substantiate evolutionism - at least some form of it. You suggest taking a pair of dogs as an example. What if you take different breeds of dogs as that pair? And keep breeding differently. You'll wind up with a new breed entirely. It's still a creature reproduced after its own kind, but in a few generations, the new pup can be nothing like the original pair, except that it's still a dog. In that sense, you can introduce a kind of evolution into dogs. I'm no expert on the matter, so I can't give you proper terms and such, but the point stands. If you really think creatures of all types don't evolve at all, please explain why humans live longer, are taller, and have modern technology. For that matter, explain why carrots used to be tiny, purple roots and became the succulent orange tubers we eat today. Or explain the recent birth of a white baby to two black-as-coal parents in Africa (not albino, in case that's your first thought). Heck, I'm fairly young and I've watched various fruits and vegetables change drastically in my own lifetime. Did you know corn is a form of grass? But it's obviously not grass. The smaller the populations, the more complete and inclusive a little change can be. Still, if interracial marriages continue to be the norm, every human on earth can have dark hair, skin, and eyes in just a few generation.

Ignoring the fact that things change is sticking your head in the sand. There are physiological differences in each "type" of creation, and cross-breeding will continue to bring about an evolution. This was proven as far back as the mid-1800s, by Gregor Mendel.

Still, believe what you will, but I highly suggest you use the brain God gave you to be sure of it. I'm just trying to help you see the other side of the discussion. So often, both sides are automatically dismissive and don't actually consider the other's perspective.
