"If Earth's species were meant to change over successive generations through physical modifications resulting from the adaptation to environmental challenges, then God would have given them the genetic predisposition to select mates and reproduce based on their favorable heritable traits and their ability to thrive under changing conditions so that these advantageous qualities would be passed down and eventually encoded into the DNA of each generation of offspring," Olathe public school teacher and creationist Joyce Eckhardt said. "It's just not natural."

Sort of a useless law anyway. It's not like anyone there was evolving before...

The 'Big Bang Theory" is a joke too.
If you believe that an explosion caused Earth to be in this perfect spot, just far enough away from the Sun that we don't burn up, nor too far away that we don't freeze, I have 2 acre's and a Mule that I want to sell you.

Are you being sarcastic?

If you're not, the earth's location and such is a result of phsyics. And, for every planet, star, galaxie, etc..., that are present, billions didn't make it. We just happen to be the fortunate ones who were able to evolve on of the few planets that made it.

Heres how the Earth can be in the exact right spot....millions if not billions of planets. One lucky chance..( one in a million) and wham, a planet in the right spot. Sorta like the odds in winning the lotto...might be slim but isnt it amazing how literally hundreds of people have won the various lotteries grand prizes. Also...thousands of cells in your lungs...and all it takes is one to mutate into cancer for you to possible develop it....long odds..but it happens.

Long odds dont make anything impossible...just not common.

And, of course, there's the fact that at various times in her history, Earth has been extremely inimical to human life. (Eg: Too cold, much too hot, no O2 in the atmosphere, etc.)
