Does "Natural Selection" Have Anything To Do With The Theory of Evolution?
We first need to clarify some terminology.
On this website the term "species" or "unique species" is defined to be a "unique DNA structure," meaning that all animals which have the same DNA structure are in the same "species."
This does not mean that every nucleotide of every DNA strand of all of the animals in a "species" is the same, it only means that the DNA of each animal in a "species" has the same length and each subsection of the DNA has the same function.
Thus a bulldog and a chihuahua are in the same "species" because their DNA is the same length and the subsections of their DNA have the same function. This is the concept of "species" thoughout this website. Thus, if all of the bulldogs on this planet die off, but there are still chihuahuas, no "species" has gone exinct. Only one type/one breed of one species has gone extinct.
Microevolution means "variety within the same species," meaning "variety within the same DNA structure."
As just mentioned, a bulldog and a chihuahua represent "variety within the same species." They are both "dogs". "Dog" is a species. A bulldog is a subspecies within the "dog" species. So is a chihuahua. But a bulldog and a horse are different "species" precisely because a bulldog and a horse have very different DNA structures.
Dog breeders, who may breed dogs to have a particular color or type of hair, can only breed dogs which are in the same species. However, there are physical limitations such that a full grown male bulldog cannot mate with a young chiwawa due to size differences.
Macroevolution means a new DNA structure has been created from an existing DNA structure by "evolution." This is the very foundational concept of the theory of evolution after the discovery of DNA. Atheists/evolutionists may claim that one species (e.g. bonobo) can "evolve" into a new and improved species (e.g. humans). Such a claim is the very foundation of the theory of evolution!!!
However, macroevolution is a fantasy of the atheists and evolutionists. Creating a new DNA structure (e.g. for humans) from an existing DNA structure (for humans) is both physically impossible and mathematically insane even if it was physically possible.
No new DNA strand has ever been observed to have been created from an old DNA structure. Study this article:
"Natural Selection" is also called: "Survival Of The Fittest." It means that a strong species may eliminate (either locally or globally) a much weaker species.
"Natural Selection" has nothing to do with creating anything, it is only an elimination process - it eliminates weak species either locally or globally. Climate change would be a good example of a global change.
"Natural Selection" is a perfectly valid concept, but natural selection has absolutely nothing to do with creating a new species (i.e.creating a new DNA structure)!!
What natural selection means is that one species may be stronger than another species and the strong species may kill-off and eliminate the weak species. Or the strong species may survive under the same climate conditions that the weak species is eliminated (i.e. goes extinct).
Any number of other factors may eliminate a species and cause it to go extinct while other species may survive under the same conditions (e.g. scarce food sources).
In many cases, however, no one really knows the truth about why a species went extinct. The vast majority of all animal species which have existed on this planet are now extinct for a variety of different reasons!!!
For example, let us think about the extinct Woolly Mammoth. Scientists were not there when this species went extinct so they can only guess as to how it became extinct. They might guess that it was a loss of food supply, or the weather or something else, but no one knows for sure because we weren't there.
Natural selection does not mean a species goes extinct (though some people may define the term "natural selection" in that way), though it applies when a species does go extinct while other species survive.
Natural selection would include the siutation were a strong species eliminates many animals in a weaker species, but it applies even if the species does not go all the way into extinction. The term "natural selection" does not imply extinction, though there may be extinction involved. Natural selection simply means that one animal of one species, may kill or eat one or more animals in a weaker species or one species may survive better under similar conditions.
The Nonsense Of The Claims of Evolutionists Begins
Evolutionists may claim that "natural selection" is a key part of the theory of evolution!! Natural selection is frequently considered the "engine that drives evolution." To many, it is the hero of Darwinism!!
However, natural selection has nothing to do with creating anything. No new species of plant or animal has ever been CREATED by natural selection!!
Natural selection can only DESTROY plants and animals AFTER they already exist!!
Plants and animals can only be created by unbelievably complex new DNA, not by lions eating gazelles (i.e. natural selection)!!!!
In other words, EACH NEW SPECIES MUST BE CREATED by the creation of NEW DNA, meaning there is a change in the DNA structure. But creating new DNA structures, to create a new "species," has absolutely nothing to do with natural selection!!!
Natural selection is only an elimination process and is never a creation process!! No new species was ever created by natural selection!!!!! It is purely an elimination process. Thus, natural selection has absolutely nothing to do with "evolution" which is an attempt to explain where a new species (i.e. a new DNA structure) came from!!!
Here is my point: the atheists/evolutionists want you to believe that natual selection is a key piece of "evolution." They want you to believe that because "natural selection" is a true principle that "evolution" is a true principle.
But the evolution debate is NOT about how plants and animals are destroyed, it is about where NEW DNA AND NEW CELL TYPES come from!!!
New DNA does not come from natural selection because natural selection is purely an elimination process!!!
For example, suppose God created the DNA for 1,000 species of animals. Now let us suppose that one of the species ate all of the members of one of the other species. The "other species" is now extinct because of natural selection!!! No new species was created in this process!!!
There are now 999 species of animals because of natural selection. There are not 1,001 species because of natural selection!!
Natural selection is a one-way street, it does not create new species it only eliminates existing species. As this website explains many times, new species (i.e. new DNA structures) cannot be created by humans or by accidents (i.e. evolution), they can only be created by God creating new DNA for a new species.
"Evolution" (the imaginary creation of new species) and "Natural Selection" (the valid potential of elimination an existing species) have nothing to do with each other!!
"Natural Selection" is a valid concept, but it does not create anything, it only ELIMINATES species.
Natural Selection, BY DEFINITION, does not create new DNA for a new species.
Natural selection only tells us which species are made extinct and perhaps how they became extinct (e.g. weather, other species eating them or killing them, etc.).
But "natural section" does not tell us HOW ANY species CAME TO EXIST!!
When Darwin was on the Galapagos Islands, he saw a lot of unknown species. But nothing he saw told him where these species came from!! These species came from DNA.
Nothing Darwin did told him anything about DNA!!! He did not have the equipment to discover it. But Darwin did understand "natural selection."
So Darwin logically thought that "natural selection" had something to do with the creation of new species. He coined the term "evolution by natural selection."
But after the discovery of DNA in 1953, the concept of "evolution by natural selection" BECAME TOTAL NONSENSE!!!
So I do not blame Darwin for the mix-up because he knew nothing about DNA and he knew very, very little about cells.
But today there is no excuse for any scientist to use the phrase "evolution by natural selection."
The phrase implies that by eliminating an animal a new species with new DNA has been created. No it hasn't!!! All you have done (if the species goes extinct) is eliminate the DNA of a weak species. The gene pool on the planet goes down, the gene pool on this planet never goes up!!
God created all of the species in the beginning and slowly but surely humans, and other species, are eliminating species from this planet. It is a one-way escalator and it only goes down.
Creating a new species (i.e. true evolution) is impossible today because of the discovery of DNA as is discussed many times on this website.
So all that can happen on this earth is that more and more species will become extinct because of humans or nature (e.g. weather).
BUT NO NEW SPECIES WILL EVER BE CREATED ON THIS PLANET!!!
God has already put all the species He wanted to put on this planet.
It is our job to take care of the plants and animals that we already have because there will never be any new true species!! There may be new varieties of existing species through breeding, but never a new DNA sequence.
In summary, I don't blame Darwin for his mistakes, he knew nothing about DNA.
No one should confuse "evolution" (the creation of new DNA) with "natural selection" (the elimination of existing DNA).
Remember: "new species" is evolution (if evolution were true, but it is not).
Remember: "extinct species" is natural selection (which is true, but it is only an elimination process).
But here is the key, by the clever use of definitions, atheists like Richard Dawkins can claim that new species have been created by evolution. But it is yet another lie of the atheists and evolutionists. It is a lie created by the use of clever definitions!!!
