Hey, I Thought That Tortoise Was Extinct!

One of the sacred shrines of evolutionism is the Galapagos Islands, where Charles Darwin saw variations and thought that they meant molecules-to-man evolution. What is actually observed, however, are the variations that are not contested; both evolutionists and creationists agree on these. As Ken Ham said about the birds, he saw big finches, little finches, big beaks, little beaks. What do you see today? Big finches, little finches, big beaks, little beaks. Further, the tortoises show expected variations within limits.

What is annoying to evolutionists is when something that is supposed to have been extinct for a long time either shows up again, or discernible traces of the formerly extinct beastie are found.
Observing animals on the Galapagos Islands supposedly helped Charles Darwin come up with his theory of evolution by natural selection. But none of these animals have fulfilled the evolutionary interpretation Darwinists have placed on them, and recent evidence of a supposedly extinct Galapagos tortoise fills the same bill.
Researchers publishing in Current Biology found tell-tale genetic markers among the tortoise population that a purebred saddleback tortoise variety that was long thought extinct is actually alive somewhere on Volcano Wolf Island of the Galapagos Island chain. These creatures had been widely hunted by sailors on passing ships, since "tortoises were handy supplies to keep on board, as they could be stowed in the hull for months—flipped on their backs so they couldn't escape—without receiving food or water." Galapagos tortoises have been protected for many years now.
