Adaptation, The Little Engine That Couldn’t

Adaption is defined as the creation of a new species from an existing species where the new species differs in tiny ways from the parent species; for example, an orange butterfly instead of a yellow butterfly. Hyper-adaptation is defined as the creation of a new species from an existing species where the new species differs in huge ways from the parent species; for example, a flying dog instead of a regular dog. No, there are no flying dogs.

In fact, there are no instances of hyper-adaptation. There are reported instances of adaptation, which we have not been able to confirm but, for now, we’ll say they are true reports. In addition, adaptation has been reported to occur an average of only every one hundred thousand years. With adaptation’s track record, the evolutionary timeline should be tens of trillions of years instead of billions of years but that doesn’t fit the geological facts.

Finally, adaptation is not evolution and there is nothing about the concept of adaptation or even hyper-adaptation that conflicts with any hermeticist, creationist, designist, indeterminationist, or biblical truth.
