It's fantasy versus reality, and reality always wins in the end.
red herrings, amusing misunderstandings of genetics and speciation, bad one-liners and incomprehensible ranting. Whence this constitutional inability to stay on topic? It arises from not having any meaningful rebuttal to make.
Reptiles and mammals are simply not related. At all.
If this God can create all the evidence for evolution, then I suppose that will be your eternal answer.
I would also agree with you whole-heartedly if science didn't have the understanding of DNA as it currently does, coupled with the fossil record, coupled with observations in labs (of speciation, not just of changing colour, etc.)

a) understanding of DNA that is invariably bound by the confines of evolutionary theory a priori, providing circular argument
b) leaving the confines of evolutionary theory, the fossil record provides marvellous evidence of a world-wide flood, and a world that perished
Tangental comment - look up on the internet human artifacts, and even skulls that have been found encased in solid coal
c) if by 'speciation' you mean that the subjects could simply no longer interbreed, it proves only that genetic mutations cause breeding problems - nevertheless the first time they observe a 'hopeful monster', a cow whose calf has webbed feet, perhaps, (or at least a fruit fly that has glasses), let me know.
one thing that strengthens eveloution's standpoint in my mind would be the vestigial bits on animals, not just the remarkalle similariites, but the fact that whales and snakes both have the remnants of leg bones in the bodies.
Humans have the remnants of a tail (s'why it's called a tailbone), heck people are still born with tails.
Check your dog's feet, if you have one. Note that it has an extra pad on it's paw, to high to really be of any use. Some dogs still prduce a claw there as well. Give it a while, and it may be gone completly. Over extrememly long periods of time, small changes make a difference.
Stop moaning about links. The mods don't like large quotes from within or without the site, as you know.
As to your other thread I wish I had time...
As before, this would be deterioration, the opposite of evolution
As for mudskippers, land-catfish, etc., I regard them as inspiring examples of how creatures were designed that could cope even with the most unpredictable of environments. (Unpredictable to us, but forseen by the Maker.)
Life did not start out simple and evolve into more complex and diverse animals; it was complex and diverse right at the beginning. This contradiction between the fossil data and the predictions of evolutionary theory falsifies the theory. The evidence from the Cambrian explosion is that evolution simply cannot be true.
