Gargoyles/Galapagos/Evolution

Sometimes when I see the ways ones come to this site, a search makes me curious as to what it is. One of these I saw today was Moon Galapagos, creatures of the night, so I looked it up thinking I would see gargoyles,

but found this instead.

Isabela looks a touch like a sea horse to me,

and I wish to read more about what is written in this below…

The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species and the studies by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle that contributed to the inception of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.

which is leading me to these other links :) I am loving reading about these things.

In regards to the history of the theory of evolution, although Darwin is most well known regarding the beginnings of the evolutionary position, evolutionary ideas were taught by the ancient Greeks as early as the 7th century B.C.[18] The concept of naturalistic evolution differs from the concept of theistic evolution in that it states God does not guide the posited process of macroevolution.[19]

Theistic evolution, one form of Old Earth Creationism, has been defined in more than one way:

  • Theistic evolution (or “evolutionary creation”) is the view that evolution occurred, but was planned and guided by God [1]
  • The belief that God planned and created the universe in such a way that life would come into being without any further supernatural intervention

Sometimes it is not a specific theory of how life originally came into being, or how new species of life arose, but is merely:

Macroevolution is the theory that natural selection can, given enough time, lead to the creation of new clades which are groups of organisms consisting of a single common ancestor and all the descendants of that ancestor. Macroevolution also requires a large number of beneficial mutations. The scientific data regarding mutations causing the significant changes necessary for macroevolution is extremely damaging to the macroevolutionary position.[1][2]

One thought on “Gargoyles/Galapagos/Evolution

  1. A little p.s. about gargoyles. I have a gargoyle wind chime outside, its been outside for years, for a while in the front, then in the back. Yesterday I noticed it, it was chiming a touch, I looked at it closely and I felt like all the ropes connecting the chimes to the gargoyle were chaining it somehow, so I ended up cutting them all off, leaving only the statue and placing it in a pot with a fig tree, it feels like it is happier this way, or I am happier it is this way:)
