A Cow Evolving into a Whale

with 4 comments

Dr. David Berlinski is one of the most clear-thinking and humorous debunkers of Darwinism. Here he discusses the issue of what it would take for, say, a cow to evolve into a whale.

  1. I can’t get enough of this stuff! Nothing has made God’s hand as visible to me in everyday life as a genuine belief that skepticism of Darwinism is warranted.

    • Me too. I just eat it up, and Berlinski is one of the most compelling figures on the “skeptical of Darwin” side of things. I just love listening to him, and I also love listening to his critics go bonkers, without really addressing the issues he raises. This tidbit by Berlinski, which I didn’t include in the post, struck me right in my gut. So true:

      • I’m confused. Why is Berlinski’s discussion of how a cow turned into relevant to anything?

        It’s a similar situation to the more frothy-mouthed atheists declaring Christians are evil because it says in the bible to kill all disabled children. (Such a scenario would indeed cause Christians an ethical dilemma – fortunately the Bible says no such thing.)

        Similarly the cow/whale. Nowhere does the theory of evolution demand whales from cows. The current theory on whales, from available fossil evidence, is that whales and cows evolved from a common ancestor, a short, hooved ungulate, as did the closest living relative of cetaceans the hippopotamus.

      • Berlinski’s discussion of a cow turning into a whale is relevant, not because a cow necessarily turned into a whale, but because it illustrates all of the changes/ mutations that would be required for a land-based creature like a cow to turn into a sea-based creature like a whale. He estimates, at the low end, that it would require 50,000 such changes, and any change in one area would affect other areas of the creature and require adaptations there as well. It’s relevant as an illustration of a general principle, namely, that the Darwinian evolutionists have not come anywhere close to demonstrating empirically how such a thing can happen, not as an explanation of how cow’s actually evolved into whales.
