The phylogenetic tree of the Darwinists, showing simple creatures having morhped into complex creatures over millions of years, is predicated on Charles Darwin’s actually meaningless notion, the species concept, which is really a specious notion because members of species can interbreed with members of other species, proving that they are of common ancestral stock, but turtles can’t mate with buffalos, and moths can’t mate with elephants, so there are limits to the interconnectivity of the created kinds; syngameons being the scientific term for groups of creatures which are capable of interbreeding, such as lions, tigers, and leopards, all members of a cat syngameon, from common ancestors, obviously, and naturally selected by environment and gene pool isolation to become the “species:” lions, tigers, and leopards.
In his hit movie, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, Ben Stein presensts compelling evidence for intelligent design by a creator, even inducing Richard Dawkins to admit that there could be a “divine signature” in the obvious design of nature, and establishing that Darwinism really has no scientific basis, through the testimony of I.D. advocates such the brilliant David Berlinski, among others, but Stein and co. fail to advocate the clear alternative to Darwinism: natural selection within the syngameons of animals, the syngameons of animals which were on Noah’s Ark. This is where the real biological evidence leads, as all the millions of ”species” of animals are actually members of a far fewer number of groups which are genetically capable of producing offspring through interbreeding (such as the liger which results from the mating of a lion and tiger in captivity), so although the Intelligent Design advocates such as Stein and Berlinski deny that they are biblical literalists, the syngameon reality lends itself to the biblical account of the genetic bottleneck because of Noah’s Flood, just what the genetic science indicates.
Please read chapters 14 and 15 of the free ebook download of my first book Old Earth? Why Not!, at this website, to see how this all worked out, and I hope Stein and co. will do a follow-up movie about the veracity of the syngameon concept in animal origins, matching the template of history outlined in the book of Genesis. Read on under the various categories here, to see why the great archaeological discoveries in modern times in the Middle East were because the book of Genesis is an extremely reliable roadmap, which the antagonists in the movie, such as Eugenice Scott, Michael Ruse, and Richard Dawkins, seem incapable of comprehending.
