Archaeopteryx & Jesus



"Evolutionist[s] like to assume that just because Archaeopteryx appears to have 
shared some features with reptiles or dinosaurs it mean[s] that it descended 
from a reptile or dinosaur.  Of course, there could be a problem with this 
thought concerning Archaeopteryx.  Creatures often have similar features which 
evolutionists do not believe are derived from a common ancestor.   For instance,
the giant panda and the red panda are similar enough to both be called 
["]pandas,["] down to their sesamoid thumbs (the only creatures to have them), 
but they are believed to have no close relationship.  The giant panda is 
believed to have descended from bears [sic] and the red panda from the 
rac[c]oon. The evolutionist[s] call this evolution of their thumbs, "Convergent 
[sic] evolution"  This process is said to have  made the thumbs of both pandas 
alike.  If it can happen in that instance, on what basis does the evolutionist 
claim the so-called reptilian features of Archaeopteryx prove descent from 
reptiles?"  

For a little fun, let's try what logicians call "uniform substitution": True 
Believers for evolutionist[s], Jesus for Archaeopteryx, God the Father for 
reptiles, Yahweh for dinosaurs, common descent for common ancestor, divinities 
of high religions for creatures, Hindu trinity for giant panda, Christian 
trinity for red panda (therefore, trinity for panda), the false gods of the 
Vedic religion for the bear, the true god of the Jewish religion for the 
raccoon.  

Behold! --  

"True Believers like to assume that just because Jesus appears to have shared 
some features with the Father or Yahweh it means that He is the son of the 
Father or Yahweh.  Of course, there could be a problem with this thought 
concerning Jesus.  Divinities of high religions often have similar features 
which True Believers do not believe are derived from common descent.   For 
instance, the Hindu trinity and the Christian trinity are similar enough to both
be called "trinities," down to their God-man avatars (the only divinities of 
high religions to have them), but they are believed to have no close 
relationship.  The Hindu trinity is believed to have descended from the false 
gods of the Vedic religion and the Christian trinity from the true god of the 
Jewish religion. The True Believers could call this evolution of their God-man 
avatars "convergent evolution."  This process is said to have made the God-man 
avatars of both trinities alike.  If it can happen in that instance, on what 
basis does the True Believer claim the so-called divine features of Jesus prove 
he is the son of God the Father?"
