Convergent Evolution and Other Explanations

Although believers in universal common ancestor evolution claim to be driven by facts, logic, the scientific method, and so forth, their pseudoscience is infested with miracles. One fact-free tenet of their faith is convergent evolution. There are other options available for explanations rather than just-so stories like that one.


Evolutionists use the non-explanation of convergent evolution when they cannot explain similar traits in living things. There are better explanations.

To be blunt, I can't cognate on why people don't hear the "explanation" of convergent evolution and say, "Yeah, right!" Critters from disparate lineages and in diverse parts of the world can have many traits in common, so Darwinists insult our intelligence. They need to cowboy up and admit that they have no idea how some living things have similar traits, such as the Tasmanian wolf/tiger/thylacine/whatever you want to call it compared to wolves in North America. Maybe it was caused by global warming.

Indeed, if secularists were not so locked into their evolutionary paradigms and had not allowed non-explanations to gain footholds, natural science could be a mite more respectable. There are other explanations that should be explored, including some proposed by creationists.
An international team of scientists working with a certain kind of butterfly in Panama was faced with a question: How could “pairs of clearly unrelated butterflies from Peru to Costa Rica evolve nearly the same wing-color patterns over and over again?” Typically, evolutionists explain this phenomenon away with an empty phrase: “butterflies can evolve along separate and different paths to arrive at the same color pattern, a process called convergent evolution.” This answer requires a suspension of disbelief. How can different species take two very different genetic paths – which would require many major genetic differences – and yet arrive at the same end result?

The “convergent evolution” solution fell apart in a study on Heliconius butterflies published in Current Biology. The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute remarked that the discovery “forever changes the way evolution is understood.”The finding that motivated this remark is as follows:
