Convergent evolution conundrum
We are commonly told that similarities between living things prove that they are related by evolution, but did you know that many similarities found in nature defy evolution?
Take for example the marsupial mouse and the placental mouse. These creatures are remarkably similar, but according to evolutionists they did not inherit this startling similarity from a common ancestor. Instead, we are told, ‘evolution’ achieved the same design in both creatures, independently. They call this ‘convergence’ because evolution has supposedly converged on, or arrived at, a similar looking outcome. But ‘convergence’ is really just a word used to try to explain away similarities that don’t support evolution.
Indeed, convergences are so common in nature that they cause major problems for evolutionists—but they fit nicely with the proposal that the living world is the handiwork of a single divine designer. The similarities tell us that there is one mind behind it all. He even designed things in a way that thwarts evolutionary story telling.
