Extinct species of bird came back from the dead, scientists find
Why, you may ask, is this creature “Proof of God”?
Well before you read the report from the Communist News Network, I would ask the gentleman of the house to make a judgement as to whether the women and children are ready to hear the word “evolution” as that word appears in the report.
As further preparation, you should re-instruct your family on the “Law of Punctuated Smiting” (this is not a “theory” it is a “Law”) as laid down by the Flint Medal winner Bobby Joe.
Bobby Joe’s discovery has stood the test of time and has made prophecies that, as the years progress have been found to be “without error.”
The earth-shattering discovery of this law is so simple, that I make no excuse for quoting the abstract:Quote:
For long enough, Biblical Science has looked for more proof of the claims made in this Law in order to provide proof of God’s existence to those of little or no faith (Catholics, atheists, Moslems, etc.) The main way of looking for some proof is praying. If God sees fit, He will give us what we want. And today He has delivered:
|(CNN)A previously extinct species of bird returned from the dead, reclaiming the island it previously lived on and re-evolving itself back into existence, scientists have said.|
The white-throated rail colonized the Aldabra Atoll in the Indian Ocean and evolved to become flightless, before being completely wiped out when the island disappeared below the sea around 136,000 years ago.
But researchers found similar fossils from before and after that event, showing that the chicken-sized bird re-appeared when sea levels fell again a few thousand years later, re-colonized the island and again lost the ability to fly.
The flightless rail can be found on Aldabra to this day.
The extremely rare process is known as iterative evolution — the repeated evolution of a species from the same ancestor at different times in history.
[It] is one of the “most significant” instances ever found in birds, according to the authors.
“We know of no other example in rails, or of birds in general, that demonstrates this phenomenon so evidently,” co-author David Martill, of the University of Portsmouth, said in a statement.
The rails on Aldabra lost the ability to fly over time, because the lack of predators made it unnecessary — just as the dodo of Mauritius did.
Unfortunately, that gave them no means of escape when the island was submerged and all its flora and fauna were wiped out.
But unlike the dodo, which became extinct in the 17th century, the white-throated rail was resurrected to tell the tale once the island re-emerged and birds started migrating to the destination again.
That means one species of bird from Madagascar gave rise to two separate species of flightless rail on Aldabra in the space of just a few thousand years.
Christian Executive Summary:
God creates the Aldabran Rail for His ineffable purpose.
The Aldabran Rail angers God for some sin it commits. (I suspect it was because God gave it wings and it refused to fly)
God is wrathful and destroys the species.
God repents of His wrath, creates another species that is slightly different. (This time it is flightless but still has wings – this is rather like “original sin” – your ancestors’ mistakes follow you to the grave.)
God replaces the smited species with it. (This is what “scientists” have now found. It is so similar that it has fooled the scientists and only God knows the difference!)
Now – who are you going to believe? Some scientist who says birds came from monkeys, and claim that all the atoms just came together “in a certain way” to make a perfect Aldabran Rail, not only once, but TWICE – or God?
If you are having any difficulty making up your mind, consider the first words of CNN’s report:
“A previously extinct species of bird returned from the dead -> JUST LIKE JESUS!”

Phil Ander (13-05-2019 10:49 AM): Are you using some form of evolutionary theory here? The birds already went "extinct" before without human involvement "136,000 years ago" according to David Martill, of the University of Portsmouth, publishing ...
