Birds of the Galápagos and Natural Selection

It may seem that when creationists mention natural selection, we are giving Darwinists a foothold. Wrong-o! Natural selection was first discussed by creationists, then the Bearded Buddha hijacked and twisted it for his own agenda. The true concept is very real.

Darwin was on what must have been an exciting five-year mission aboard the Beagle, and there was a long stop at the Galápagos islands. We looked at the tortoises, now we will consider the even more iconic birds.

Environments change, so living things must adapt to survive. Interestingly, evolutionists maintain that the loss of features (such as when certain insects and birds — cormorants — become flightless) is evidence for their conjectures, but the truth is quite the opposite. Also, the islands have boobys, which are closely related to gannets. There are three main varieties that have differences in their actions. Natural selection at work. The Creator equipped living things to adapt, old son, and that is not what Darwin wanted.

The birds on the Galápagos Islands show an amazing adaptation to their environment, and provide excellent examples of the ability of animals to adapt to changing conditions. The flightless cormorant’s wings no longer function for flight, but it is able to swim and dive for prey better than its cousins who are still able to fly. The blue-footed, red-footed, and masked boobies show the variety of behaviours and appearances that can develop within the same kind. The 13 species of Galápagos finch show various beak sizes to be able to consume different foods, and even exhibit new behaviours.

But are any of these variations examples of evolution? And how does the biblical creation model explain them?
