Has anyone ever wondered (and come up with a reason) WHY creatures moved from sea to land? If there was no life on land (no vegetation or bugs to eat) what compelled creatures to climb out of the water in the first place?
Maybe because of the vast unused resources (vegetation)? Why did you assume the opposite? I'm almost certain land plants precede land animals in the fossil record. I stated another possible reason ITT..edit on 30-9-2012 by rhinoceros because: (no reason given)
How an organism accomplishes things such as eating, reproducing, sleeping, is how you define lifestyle, rather than the act itself?
An organism's purpose is to eat, rest, and reproduce
the survival of the fittest rule, would necessarily accomplish this according to the path of the least resistance (i.e., all adaptations would result in one simplest form).
The remiges of this bird are attached, as
are those of the earlier Archaeopteryx and modern
birds (Fig. 26). It was not a creature with a theropodan
lifestyle. The problem in reasoning is clear:
Chiappe (1997) argued that non-avian theropods
were terrestrial cursors, and therefore the ancestral
mode of life for birds was that of an earthbound
predator, and Padian and Chiappe (1998) further
argued that the cursorial hypothesis for flight origins
was strengthened by the fact that the immediate
theropod ancestors of birds were terrestrial.
Similarly, Padian (1983, and subsequent decades)
argued equivalently that pterosaurs were the sistergroup
of dinosaurs and were therefore bipedal cursors
that evolved flight from the ground up. As noted
earlier, this hypothesis can now be discarded.
One of the best resources on the age of the earth question which uses both the biblical data and the scientific data can be found at: How old is the earth?
Actually, 90 percent of the methods that have been used to estimate the age of the earth point to an age far less than the billions of years asserted by evolutionists.
Creationists admit that they can’t prove the age of the earth using a particular scientific method.
Creationists ultimately date the earth using the chronology of the Bible. This is because they believe that this is an accurate eyewitness account of world history, which can be shown to be consistent with much data.
