When a typical non-deistic or anti-deistic evolutionist is asked about the origin of species, his or her usual answer would allude to: "natural selection," with reference to lifeform inception and varieties causation from pre-existing inanimate substances, which starting substances already existed or came into existence from "unknown" (or prejudicially-close-minded non-admitted) source or sources (and "I don't want to talk about it anymore with you").
To limit and boggle down one's discourse and elaboration by being confined exclusively to evolutionary-satanspeak semantical terminology is admittedly and lamentably manifesting an application of the Scripture verse:
Proverbs 26:4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself.
....which is why reference to the exact wordings of Holy Writ and language contained therein is obligatory and crucial, and why I do not either quote vulgar swear words to you the reader to reveal exactly what they are, nor show porn pics or vids to you to show you what that type of porn is.
However, to perhaps persuasively and effectively debate evolutionary mythology, dissertating on their own concocted-fable terms might - in some situation and under some circumstances - be useful:
Proverbs 26:5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.
So, here goes:
The term "natural selection" to them would not only infer that the process of formation and procreation was normal or usual (and not abnormal - however THAT is or is not defined), but also "automatically" and "already" contained within the materials that formed either inanimate or animate "designs" (or what are thought of by some as "designs," and/or whether such "designs" are or should be considered "intelligent," or not).
The abstraction of "selection" per se relating particularly to inanimate substances of the inanimate environment is, to many evolutionists, their weird [heretical and apostate] attempt to replace the Creator with not merely [the foolishness of] inanimate environmental objects (i.e. the creation, as termed by creationists) deciding what lifeforms are adaptable or not....but even the abstractive process of inanimate environmental objects deciding what allegedly-beneficial-rather-than-detrimental mutations should or should not be perpetuated and reproduced.
In other words, imposing the replacement pseudo-deity idol of Selection determining secondary pseudo-deities of Design or Characteristics of environmental objects in choosing what should survive compared to what should not survive, how such should look or not look, and other characteristics or traits such should and should not have...substitutes as a replacement god for anti-Biblical evolutionists.
But (in all honesty and frankness), inanimate environmental objects and substances do NOT have a mind of their own to decide to choose or not choose anything.
Instead, the decision process to adjust is rather the fortunate-for-survival capacity of scentient lifeforms or organisms (which - not who - to a creationist, are merely active entities adjusting or adapting to inanimate passive environmental factors and conditions....also created by the Creator, to creationists).
The false and absurd personification of the abstraction of "selection" itself is - not surprisingly - also the obvious basis for one of the blood-brother-like partners-in-heresy involving the abortion-homicide issue....with pro-abortionists ridiculously referring to the non-born human babe in the womb as merely a "choice" (or, to them, an unnatural not natural selection)...which "selection" was (to them) made without their permission (even though they themselves committed and not performed their sexual irresponsibility to cause that pregnancy choice to occur), but instead was (to them) "imposed" by a faulted and blameable other source -- probably with feminist-sexist male-gender connotation and association.
Even if the mythical-deity abstraction of selecting (per se) ["natural" or otherwise] could choose which species to environmentally favor and which to not favor, how and why would the hypothetically-personified inanimate environmental objects, and/or hypothetically-personified selection process, choose only certain species to accomodate for survival contrasted with other species to deprive for extinction? Why would one or both hypothetical fabricated-persona decision-makers favor any species at all? In fact, HOW would both of them differentiate or determine precisely what environmental accomodations or deprivations would in fact be appropriate for, or inappropriate instead, then magically or mysteriously bestowed in additional, properly apportioned, precision and coordination with all other fully-and-previously-functioning parameters intricately interdependent with all the vast plethoria of diverse kinds of lifeforms?
As with some other inferior sciences, like psychology for example, the limited terminology and conceptuality of Bible-less originology can and usually does stop short of vital scientific information fortunately obtainable in the highest type of science: theology. If one is content with the restricted-content inferior sciences, one (it seems to this webpage author) relegates himself to perpetually remain a shallow thinker, content with dogfood-vs-steakfood anti-religious alienation against to cherished enlightenment and higher education of morality-inclusive knowledge.
For example, a psychiatrist might utilize such arguably-qualitative terms as depression, psychosis, phobias, schizophrenia, repression, delusion and so on, then attempting to discover past-history confessions of victims beset with such deficiencies....whereas the theologian not only can equate psychiatric and psychological laboratory-sounding names with decipherable synonyms of equality referred to in The Bible, and continue on beyond mere fancy-sounding descriptions of patient problems, but even proceed far beyond pathetically-impotent behavior-or-attitude-alteration suggestions for frequently-futile return to what some controversially deem: "normal."
Similarly, when the subject is originology, the illogical and non-realistic fairy-tale of inanimate objects evolving by themselves from other inanimate objects, and inanimate objects making survival-or-extinction decision pro or con pertaining to lifeforms, and especially the abstraction of "natural" "selection" per se exercising choices for or against lifeforms.....is not befitting for rational or sane human beings.
At least creationists sensibly REJECT the above presuppositions and presumptions of evolutionary lunacy, admit and acknowledge the real existence of what actually does exist, and are perplexed by the puzzle of:
(1) why is there NO record of lifeforms now or in the recent past evolving in even the most-infinitesmal slightest way whatsoever, as long as humankind has been keeping written records?
(2) why are there absolutely zero irrefutable and non-disputable fossil records of genuine transitional-specie fossils?
Genesis 1:21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds." And it was so.
25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Genesis 6:20 Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the according to its kinds, two of every sort shall come in to you, to keep them alive.
Genesis 7:14 they and every beast according to its kinds, and all the cattle according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth according to its kinds, and every bird according to its kinds, every bird of every sort.
Why Charles Darwin, in his pseudo-intellectual pseudo-scientific pseudo-scholastic rebellion, despised that repeated Scriptural phrase: according to their kinds so much....is beyond me.
Romans 10:3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and [Darwin] seeking to establish [his] own, ...did not submit to God's righteousness.
(3) why are mutations almost invaribly harmful or - if presumed beneficial or an improvement to a species - are they not reproduced in next-generation offspring?
Job 11:12 But a stupid man will get understanding, when a wild donkey's colt is born a man.
(4) why do natural phenomena themselves not contain an understandable verbal or written name-identification record of the ultimate Source or sources of substance for the overwhelming varieties of lifeforms to have originated from, even though omnipotent and infinitely-imaginative characteristics of the nameless-by-nature Creator are plain to see:
Job 12:7 But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
8 or the plants of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
9 Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
10 In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
Job 37:2 Respond to the thunder of His voice and the rumbling that comes from His mouth.
Job 37:10 By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen fast.
Job 40:9 Have you an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like His?
Psalm 50:6 The heavens declare His righteousness, for God himself is judge!
Here is where Biblical-creationist scientists (who, in effect, are a type of theologians, which brand of science is the study of theos, or God the Creator) supply The One Compelling name-identification Answer to such Source-and-Divine-purpose questions:
Colossians 1:11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy,
12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
13 He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation;
16 for in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities -- all things were created through Him and for Him.
17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
Hebrews 1:1 In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets;
2 but in these last days He has spoken to us by a Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world.
3 He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of His nature, upholding the universe by His word of power. When He had made purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become as much superior to angels as the name He has obtained is more excellent than theirs.
5 For to what angel did God ever say, "You are my Son, today I have begotten You"? Or again, "I will be to Him a father, and He shall be to me a Son"?
6 And again, when He brings the first-born into the world, He says, "Let all God's angels worship Him."
7 Of the angels He says, "Who makes His angels winds, and his servants flames of fire."
8 But of the Son He says, "Your throne, God, is for ever and ever, the righteous scepter is the scepter of Your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness beyond Your comrades."
10 And, "You, Lord, did found the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of Your hands;
Even more intriguing are Scriptural response solutions given by [Judeo-Christian] theologians specializing in originology because of bizarre, satanically-virulent, aggressively-hateful, vicious, and slanderously-hostile aversion exhibited by evolutionist-reactionary activists against Biblical-creationist data, especially when open-mindedly and accurately taught (without cultic bigotry nor fraudulent misrepresentation) in public-school settings:
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20 Ever since the creation of the world, His invisible nature, namely, His eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
21 for although they knew God they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for ["natural-selected" inanimate or animate environmental objects or the non-abnormally-"natural" selection process and criteria abstractions per se] images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
