The proposal that one type of animal could descend from an animal of another type goes back to some of the first pre-Socratic Greek philosophers, such as Anaximander and Empedocles. Such proposals survived into Roman times. The poet and philosopher Lucretius followed Empedocles in his masterwork De rerum natura (On the Nature of Things). In contrast to these materialistic views, Aristotle understood all natural things, not only living things, as being imperfect actualisations of different fixed natural possibilities, known as "forms," "ideas," or (in Latin translations) "species." This was part of his teleological understanding of nature in which all things have an intended role to play in a divine cosmic order. Variations of this idea became the standard understanding of the Middle Ages, and were integrated into Christian learning, but Aristotle did not demand that real types of animals always corresponded one-for-one with exact metaphysical forms, and specifically gave examples of how new types of living things could come to be.
In the 17th century the new method of modern science rejected Aristotle's approach, and sought explanations of natural phenomena in terms of physical laws which were the same for all visible things, and did not need to assume any fixed natural categories, nor any divine cosmic order. But this new approach was slow to take root in the biological sciences, which became the last bastion of the concept of fixed natural types. John Ray used one of the previously more general terms for fixed natural types, "species," to apply to animal and plant types, but he strictly identified each type of living thing as a species, and proposed that each species can be defined by the features that perpetuate themselves each generation. These species were designed by God, but showing differences caused by local conditions. The biological classification introduced by Carl Linnaeus in 1735 also viewed species as fixed according to a divine plan.
...Hi to the famed Atheist/Evolutionist Richard Dawkins and followers of Darwin and Biology Evolution...!
...in the Book of Pure Logic, I explain the lack of a road way in the genomes from one life form to another, though we get a comparison and similitude between genomes, DNA is so intermingled in functions and locations that nobody has shown what it takes in DNA to get from an APE/CHIMP to a HUMANOIDE and then a HUMAN...!
The road for this is too complex and not as simple and "wishful THINKING" of DARWIN and Evolutionists...!
...Then we need the road to the first unicellular being...! And the formation of the basis for life through DNA...! Too many roads to traverse willfully ignored by Science...!
...To deny the God of the Bible is a logical correct assertion! To deny gods/entities and what we do not logically know and lack data to know correctly, infers the possibility of the logical! Energy is accepted to be eternal somehow, and so eternal origins is not a wishful thought! Though an eternal existence as humans could be a "wishful thought"...!
Evolution is the complete extreme logic of the negative spectrum, from the Bible logic of complete eternal damnation and a asexual Heaven for ever for a "few" [ sounds like Catholicism to me ]...!
THE REASON OR NO REASON FOR LIFE, is for my Book 2: "ANOTHER & CONTINUED BOOK OF PURE LOGIC", to study for you all...!
