As a Scientist I can not emphasis it enough: we need to teach children to observe nature and not be spoon fed supposed and largely falsified evolutionary genetic linkage patterns. While it is true that I extrapolate the above observations to appeal to support a Designer/Creator and independent animal groups this takes less extrapolation than evolutionary scenarios. There are no observational evidences today for the so-called transmutation of organisms. (Mutations debilitate and degrade.) And yet, just as man designs things, e.g. car, plane, computers etc it is reasonable that there is One who designed mankind. The Bible comments that "all who seek Me will find Me." So, seek Him. (Christian Theology on this site has some information.)
29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. (In context this was spoken to the Jewish People, but the principle applies to all mankind.)
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped."
To God Be The Glory-Always
