This creationwiki article exhibits Jerry's position on common descent vs. common ancestry as 100% YEC:
|... That tigers, panthers, and cheetahs share a common ancestor is a view accepted by most young earth creationists.|
Despite this conclusion readers are redirected to the common descent page when they click the common ancestor link embedded therein. I guess this is the vicious circle Jerry's argument is based on.
I hope I'm not the only one amused that their choice of felids are estimated to have diverged earlier than humans and chimps.
If they accept that cheetahs and tigers (never mind the several species that "panther" might refer to) are of the same "kind", why not humans and chimps ?
BTW sparc, expelling Wes to the frigid south has it's own thread.
