    Without Genesis, absolutely nothing makes sense in all of Scripture.

    A shark, a "living fossil" because remains have been dated back 80 million years.

    Really, 80 million years without change.

    Somethings have changed little since creation due to entropy, or corruption of what was very good. Some things have changed quite a bit (we now suffer from many genetic problems). And, some things have gone extinct. But, all things remain part of the same original created kinds).

    That is my point.

    Easy. We didn't come from monkeys.

    I'd ask you to read a little more closely if I thought you were interested in reality here. If you did, you'd know that "virtually no change" doesn't mean "no changes at all." It just means that, in terms of physical appearance, the animal was well-adapted to its environment and therefore did not need to change to survive. The sharks of millions of years ago are still very different genetically from what we see today. For example, there aren't 50 foot great whites anymore.

    But don't let facts get in the way. I'll leave you to your games now

    Yes. A species changes in response to environmental pressure (most often).

    So if a shark species is already well-suited to life in an particular ocean habitat after millions of years of evolving to fit it, why would you expect it to change again for no reason? Unless its environment changes, there is no pressure on the species to change

    how does evolution go against the bible? if the Lord created a bird, and put into the bird a natural ability to adapt to its environment (grow a longer beak to catch fish) how is that beyond the Lords creating ability?

    If a carbon-14 date supports a theory, then it is added to the text. And if it does not fit what is expected, then it is thrown out.

    When something of known age is carbon dated, it doesn’t work. When something of unknown age is carbon dated, it is assumed to work.

    Dino bone that were not identified as such were carbon dated between 6 to 16 thousand years old.

    Carbon dating is accurate for about 2500 years.

    Similar to how whales, cows, and horses sleep. They sleep in short bursts rather than in long stretches, and they are not totally out. Kind of half asleep
