And they didn't evolve (someone's joke, maybe?))

Cats DID evolve in the classic sense. There were probably only one pair of felines on board the ark as they are carnivores and therefore unclean. That single species underwent numerous speciations and were naturally selected until they became highly specialized to a number of unique habitats. That history is (and will be referred to as) biological evolution on the CreationWiki.--Chris 10:54, 21 September 2006 (EDT)

Okay, thanks. I didn't think it was a good idea to say things have evolved when a large part of CreationWiki is arguing against it. -- Tim Talbot --Klang 19:39, 21 September 2006 (EDT)

Observation ... AiG and ICR don't seem to equate "biological evolution" with "rapid speciation". In fact, wherever I could find "biological evolution" on their websites, they were denouncing it. Are we working on different wavelengths? Examples:

"One of the more bizarre claims in Ross and Archer's presentation is that YEC, by accepting the (observable) concept of rapid speciation, somehow accept the concept of biological evolution!" AiG [1]
By Henry Morris: "They feel that they must somehow reinterpret the Genesis record of creation to allow for billions of prehistoric years, which the evolutionists must have in order to make cosmic evolution and biological evolution seem feasible." ICR [2]
"This mistake [misinterpreting Galileo] is identical to those today who interpret the Bible to support things such as the big bang, billions of years, or biological evolution." AiG [3]
"Concepts of biological evolution are nothing more than unfounded extrapolations of the minor variations we see in living things." ICR [4]
"This is misleading [that biological information produces new species and genera], since we would not call it ‘biological evolution’ because no new information is produced." AiG [5]
"It also illustrates the flexibility of the theory of evolution. Evolutionists are so certain of its occurrence that they are willing to find it in nearly every situation. If evidence for man’s biological evolution is lacking, they replace it with cultural evolution as a new form." AiG [6]
