Comment on Panda’s Thumb: ‘SDAs are split over evolution’ by Mike H.
Let me add that natural selection refutes the evoluntary theory of creation. If all cannines can be traced back to one cannine as modern DNA studies have already accomplished and proved, then were did that first cannine come from?

Panda’s Thumb: ‘SDAs are split over evolution’
I think there needs to be clarification between evolutionary teaching of creation and the teaching of natural selection as the two are not the same. Natural selection is in harmony with the literal biblical creation account. For example: From one pair of humans come all humans, and modern science as well as the creation account in Genesis support this. From one pair of canines come all canines and modern science as well as the creation account in genesis support this. Reference recent DNA studies. They prove the biblical account, at least as far back as the world wide flood. From all the diversity of life today, we could trace each species back to a single pair of ancestors, regardless of their diversity caused by a natural selection process.
What is not compatible with Genesis or modern science is the evolutionary teaching of creation. Life beginning as an accident and after extremely long epochs of time, this life moving from the most simple forms to the most complex forms as they exist today. It is here that the evolutionist inserts the use of natural selection, which then conveys to natural selection the the black cloud of evolutionary theory, thereby causing both to be viewed as the same thing when in fact they are distinct and separate and not compatible.
When we view the creation/evolution dialogs we need to be aware of what is actually being discussed and debated; the evolutionary teaching of creation which is unprovable and antagonistic to the Word of God or simple natural selection which can be proved and which is in harmony with a literal biblical creation account as recorded in Genesis.
