eastern flying squirrel, one of 267 species of
squirrel found worldwide, is highly modified for an arboreal existence.
The presence of a large flight membrane, called a patagium, between the
front and hind legs allows the flying squirrel to engage in controlled
gliding when moving between trees. Flying squirrels feed primarily on seeds,
nuts, fruits, and occasionally on fungi and insects. A ground squirrel,
will retreat underground at the appropriate season, reduce its body temperature
drastically within a few hours and become dormant, even though the temperature
outside may be well above freezing. It emerges quickly from hibernation
as a burst of metabolic energy warms the body to operating level in a similarly
short time. During hibernation
the squirrel's metabolic
rate may be 10 percent of normal, its heart may beat only 10 to 20 times
of from 200 to 300), and it may breathe
only four times per minute.(instead
of from 100 to 200)."....

Diversity of Life:.The
Creator limiting book Darwin's Spectre, 1998, Princeton University
Press, New Jersey, by Michael Rose, Professor of Evolutionary Biology at
University of California, Irvine, California."Life
is produced locally from the materials at hand, not globally by a
typical comment from those leaving out everything that physics is found
upon, missing the invisible components of creation that support and maintain
Such are they who are bright
enough to write a book but lack enough brightness to have a depth of overstanding
into information they are attempting to convey to others, as evidenced
by their shortage of intelligent questions re an overview of all that which
is continually progressing in creation, such as maintenance.
What's the intelligence behind the maintenance of creation? It's clear
that there is intelligence behind
it all. Avoiding questions as, where did the materials come from and
why are materials in nature different, etc.? Why is nature the same,
yet different? Avoiding such questions denotes a lack of lack in thinking.
Rose carries on 'disproving'
God's creation by insinuating
that because diverse
Australia exists and not elsewhere,
he makes the assumption.(what
most evolutionists deal in).that
the Creator is incapable of geographically placing species like these;
created species for different tropical regions ought to resemble each other
if there is any logic
to God's creation.".Resemble
how? They all have breathing and elimination systems, all have breath intakes,
all need food and they tase it, all have hearing mechanisms, can sense
touch, etc. I think we see a semblance
here. Some 'educated' people are just 'out
So we are left to accept
his presentation of there being no logic to Creator-God's creation because
created species in tropical regions ought
to resemble each other, reason being that since a Creator would be logical,
and here we see no logic, that the Creator doesn't exist. Not a bright
comment and evidences narrow reasoning. It's a reductio
ad absurdum, where his proposition of 'no logic to the creation' and
his dictum 'life
is not produced globally by a beneficent designer' is supposed to disprove
the existence of a Creator, because.he.believes
in a haphazard
creation evidencing non design. In doing so, he sets himself up as a fait
expecting others to unquestioningly
trust opinions regarding evolutionary.tenets
he believes to be accurate. Such are they who are blinded to design.
Perhaps he hasn't heard
of diverse life in other places, like Viet Nam, Laos and Uganda. Numerous
such as those found in the Annamite Mountains, along Viet Nam's border
with Laos, where the saola.(Pseudoryx
nghetinhensis), an animal resembling
an antelope and about 3 feet tall at the shoulders and weighing some 300
pounds has been discovered. DNA analysis shows that this is a new genus
cow, ox, buffalo, etc. family), not
newly evolved, newly discovered.
Just as an aside of how nature
can handle and dispose of poisons, the some 70 million liters of defoliant
dropped on Viet Nam's forests has been 'taken care of' and the area is
now lush and green.
And then there's the giant
muntjac, sort of a barking deer possessing long antlers. And the stripped
rabbits. And the reclusive.graceful
spiraled horned linh.(mountain
goat). And the kouprey, a 2000 pound,
6 foot tall wild forest short-haired ox, found in forests in parts of Cambodia,
Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
"We found that the Bwinda
and Virunga gorillas.(in
the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda).are
isolated geographically, not only because the forests the two populations
inhabit are separate and distinct, but also because the two populations
range over different elevations. Bwinda gorillas do not exploit the bamboo
zone, between about 2,400 to 2,600 meters.(2,200
to 2,400 yards).above
sea level, a vegetation zone vital to the Virunga gorillas. Associated
with these changes are a suite of ecological, behavioral and morphological
characteristics distinguishing Bwindi gorillas from Virunga gorillas. A
number of those characteristics, such as differences in muscular attachment
sites, nasal cartilage configuration and the length of the big toe and
thumb relative to the other digits, are unlikely to be physiological responses
to differences in environment.
"Indeed, if those and other
known morphological differences between Bwindi gorillas and Virunga gorillas
were soley developed in response to differences in their environments,
one would expect that Virunga gorillas and Bwindi gorillas living at the
extreme parts of their respective ranges would be the most different. That,
however, is not the case."....Esteban

University and colleagues have reported, that of, groups of lizards
separated for millions of years by mountains have changed very little in
contrast to evolutionary thinking that such separation would elicit adaption
causing differing characteristics.
Just like the
insects in amber. In fact, the researchers have found that rainforest
rats, bats and birds all show the same pattern, in that, geographically
separated populations often look alike, while neighbouring populations
in subtly different habitats vary. In Cameroon.(a
country of west central Africa), for
instance, where grassy fields gradually give way to rainforest, birds living
in the ecotone
are far more diverse than those deep inside the forest.
