The Wolf Among Us

Is a dog a wolf? BalmungSalma has informed us that dogs are not all considered wolves. Not many, in fact. To him, "A great dane and a chihuahua are a different species."

This is a perfect example of believing something by mere appearance. Darwinist believe as they do, because of the fossils, and Haeckel's fake drawings, and the speckled moths, and just everything!

Dear reader, please be more informed than this. Science exists to search for the truth behind appearance. Physical facts are evidence, but are not by themselves the truth. Consider what taxonomists have revealed about wolves and dogs:


What's in a name? Or, the wolf among us

By Lehr Brisbin PhD

Taxonomists are those scientists who spend their time assigning and then arguing about the appropriate scientific names for living organisms. While their activities may often seem quite esoteric and somewhat trivial to the uninitiated, it is important to realize that the name which they may eventually agree to assign to a given animal generally represents a consensus of the best available scientific evidence as to what the exact evolutionary relationships are between that particular animal and its most nearly related kin. While even that information may seem to be of largely academic interest to the lay public, there are now an increasing number of cases where laws have been written and government regulations established, the enforcement of which may be dependent on the exact scientific taxonomic designation associated with a given animal or group of animals, and this is where all of this begins to impinge upon those of us who "do dogs."

Just such a situation occurred in 1993 when the American Society of Mammalogists and the Smithsonian Institution published Mammal Species of the World: A Taxonomic and Geographic Reference. In this volume, it was agreed that our domestic dog should be designated Canis lupus instead of the more customary Canis familiaris, thereby confirming the consensus of the scientific community that the dog is indeed exactly the same species as the wolf, the species from which it is generally assumed to have been derived through the process of domestication.

Just think about that! That adorable little Pug, Poodle, or Pekingese that curls up each night beside (or often probably in) your bed is in reality a wolf! To be sure, it is a wolf that has been incredibly altered in appearance and behavior through generations of artificial selection, but it is a wolf nevertheless!

-from http://wolfdog.ws/html/art4.html

So, in spite of appearance, dogs are wolves that have been altered through artificial selection, but they are still considered Canis lupus, and they still maintain the same body plan. They are not dolphins, and never will be.

Thus is the folly of Darwinism. Similarity in appearance does NOT prove common descent, and there is no evidence that any living thing can be so altered by natural selection that it actually changes into another creature.

Believe it if you wish, but be advised you are doing so based on desire, false appearance, and the power of mythology, all mixed in with LOTS of faith. But it is NOT science, and it is NOT true.
