Creation vs. Evolution

Creation

  • Evolutionary theory rests on precepts set out by old, obsolete book written over a hundred years ago
  • Scientifically corroborated by numerous peer-reviewed Facebook posts
  • Banana flawlessly designed for use as fake phone
  • Bible verses about molecular mutation and generational metamorphosis in allele frequencies clearly allegorical
  • Nine electoral votes in Alabama
  • Results of natural selection experiments have only been reproduced a few thousand times in a laboratory
  • Archaeopteryx way too awesome to have evolved into shitty birds of today
  • Far easier to understand than evolution


Evolution

  • Personal feud with God
  • Saw frog evolve from pollywog
  • Distinct morphological similarities between ancient Neanderthal and Trent
  • Nice to think we actually distantly related to family dog
  • Want to see how much more upright next figure in evolutionary chart will be standing
  • That one Star Trek: Voyager episode where helmsman Tom Paris goes through rapid evolution
  • Dazzling oratorical genius of Clarence Darrow
  • Universe was created out of nothing billions of years ago, which you’ll just have to trust us on

This type of evolution does seem to happen. It simply means that Hashem created the world in a way that organisms should be able to adapt to their changing environment. This shows nothing about whether or not that is how life came about in the first place.
Animals learning new behavior does not fit Evolutionists definition of evolution.  That's besides the point that the article cites no evidence that this is new behavior.

If you are arguing that evolutionary adaptations don't happen you will be fighting a losing argument
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

They are both grasping at straws depending on your viewpoint.
