You are thinking "modern". Eons ago (I don't know how old Earth is, it certainly ain't 6000 and I don't trust those dating methods either so I
say "Eons") there were not as many animals and insects around as there are now so would you still say evolving from something which is
self-sufficient into something which needed rare animals and insects to procreate is a step up?
I love it when some evolutionists automatically assume someone is Christian/religious when they are anti-evolution. Shows how ignorant some of them
. I am anti-macro-evolution and anti-religion. I don't know enough to settle on any theory as to how the universe and life came about. I know
enough to know that the Bible is not the "Word of God" and macro-evolution is wrong. I do believe in "natural selection" however, since it can be
I think I'll repeat myself again in case someone does not get what I'm getting at: The first plants spread across the world without the need of
animals or insects. Later some of them evolved into pollen-bearing plants which NEEDED ANIMALS OR INSECTS to procreate. Why would a self-sufficient
plant evolve into a plant dependent on (RARE back then) animals and insects? If those animals/insects moved away or died out those plants would die
out. Survival of the fittest. A self-sufficient plant is fitter than a plant needing animals/insects, right?
Some possible theories:
1) Macro-evolution without intervention of an intelligent entity. Not enough proof to satisfy me.
2) The Biblical explanation (The Bible is about aliens, not God, so it is suspect).
3) Macro-evolution with the intervention of an "intelligent" entity, i.e. living organisms changed to adapt to their environment and this entity
jumped in to "push" an organism to evolve into something else.
4) Creation spread out over a time-period (almost certainly not in the order depicted in the Bible).
Unfortunately none of those really sit right with me. There must be an alternative.
