Maybe Noah misheard God concerning the measurements of the ark and simply made it too small! He only had room for elephants, hippos, giraffes,and rhinoceros' or the dinosaurs. So just days before the flood began, he played rock, paper, scissors with the apes who took the side of the great mammals. Noah lost and this explains why the apes and the largest and tallest mammals on earth come from Africa. That's where the apes wanted to live after the flood and the choice was theirs and part of the winnings, the great mammals were happy to follow hoping that the planet would belong to the apes someday. They were forever sour with mankind after Noah took the side of dinosaurs. They were convinced that mankind would fail so badly that they most certainly were going to to do themselves in sooner or later, flood or no flood.

Survival of the Prettiest
A little over a decade after he published “On the Origin of Species,” in which he described his theory of natural selection shaped by “survival of the fittest,” Darwin published another troublesome treatise — “The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relationship to Sex.” This expanded on an idea he mentioned only briefly in “Origin.” Sometimes, he proposed, in organisms that reproduce by having sex, a different kind of selection occurs: Animals choose mates that are not the fittest candidates available, but the most attractive or alluring. Sometimes, in other words, aesthetics rule.

An extremely interesting article by Yale professor David Gelernter. Technically a book review, but Gelernter essentially drops the theory of evolution and takes time in the article to explain a couple of reasons why.

Worth anyone's time who is interested in this subject.

Right? It's a little long, but it serves as a pretty good layman's way of showing how evolution, for all its qualities, just can't cut it.

And if they were to go on to Signature in the Cell and Darwin's Doubt, just out of curiousity, who could blame them?
