I said that I BELIEVE you are bowing down to religious beliefs. I did not say anything about the bible....although if you do not believe in EVOLUTION it is logical to assume that the belief in a Creationist based religion is driving you.
As far as Evolution vs. Creationism is concerned....that arguement is long over as Evolution has been definatively proven as a FACT.
The most striking and important fact for us in regard to the inhabitants of islands, is their affinity to those of the nearest mainland, without being actually the same species. [In] the Galapagos Archipelago... almost every product of the land and water bears the unmistakable stamp of the American continent. There are twenty-six land birds, and twenty-five of these are ranked by Mr. Gould as distinct species, supposed to have been created here; yet the close affinity of most of these birds to American species in every character, in their habits, gestures, and tones of voice, was manifest.
