Young-earth creationists say that housecats, tigers, and all felines descended from one pair of cat “kind” after the flood, positing ultra-fast evolution in order to do so.
They also say that humans could not have descended from a common ancestor with chimpanzees and other primates even over millions of years.
The hypocrisy is astounding, as is the fact that anyone accepts these young-earth creationist claims.
I said to myself concerning humans, “God has surely tested them in order for them to see that they are but animals.”
A number of translations insert a word such as “like” to avoid the meaning of the Hebrew text being conveyed to readers. And so conservative Evangelical Bible translations often reinforce the entrenched opposition to science by obscuring in translation those things in the Bible that might help readers.
