In this documentary which described cat species living in various parts of the world made the following claim about the origin of cats, a claim devoid of any scientific evidence and which was nothing more than fairy tale:
“The body structure of the standard cat is the physical design which makes a cat a cat. As all cat species underwent evolution in line with their lifestyles and needs, there were small changes in the main design, and thus the 37 modern cat species were born.”
It is being claimed here that cats possess a common body structure and that the individual differences among species emerged through evolution. In fact, however, there is absolutely no evidence that such evolution ever occurred. There are no fossil records to indicate that any cat species underwent gradual changes. Like all other groups, cats appear suddenly in the fossil record and with all their individual features.
Referring to this evolution in cats, although no evidence has ever been found of such evolution in natural history, is no different to saying that cars with common features have a basic design and that all cars gradually evolved from one another. Both are groundless claims, based on no evidence whatsoever. When one examines the design in cats one sees a skeleton-muscular structure which allows them to move with great agility and a tail they use as a perfect means of balance. There is a consciousness lying at the root of these designs, which serve a particular purpose, rather than aimless and unconscious natural phenomena. In short, cats came about through conscious design, not through evolution; in other words, they were created by God.
Another fairy tale related in this program concerned a species of cat called the wavy cat, which lives in the forests of South America. The Discovery Channel claimed that these cats are perfectly adapted to life among the branches, and that this has been made possible by the so-called evolution they have undergone. Yet this claim is nothing more than a fairy tale, for which there is no scientific evidence. At the root of this evolutionist tale lies an inconsistent logic to which we have frequently responded on this site. The Discovery Channel first describes the perfect designs which facilitate the lives of living things (for instance the anatomy which allows cats to climb trees), and then resorts to the myth that this adaptation came about as the result of evolution. The fact is, however, that there is no scientific evidence that any living thing adapted by means of evolution.
The Discovery Channel’s claim is just like describing the benefits of the 4-wheel drive system in a jeep and then maintaining that suitability to the terrain came about through evolution. In brief, the Discovery Channel is making a claim that is inconsistent in all regards. The only reason why the Discovery Channel airs such irrational and illogical claims is its blind belief in Darwinism.
We remind Discovery Channel that Darwinism is a fairy tale with no scientific basis and advise them to stop this inconsistent propaganda.
