The Question is not whether or not Evolution is valid, it is whether or not it is ever Divinely Inspired?
In south Africa, the Black Eagle feeds off a particular mammal, whom it attacks from out of the sun. This mammal has a feature in its eye which reduces glare, so it can perceive the Eagle`s attack even from out of the sun. The natural balance between predator and prey is so finely matched, that even a single Eagle too many, and the prey would be over hunted. Life is so harsh, the Mother Eagle lays two eggs to assure that one will hatch, then the first Eaglet to hatch kills the second one to hatch.
So the question is, what feature of Evolution is it, that provides not for survival of the fittest, but for maintaining the balance of nature, giving the prey a feature to insure that a number can escape otherwise certain doom, and restraining the number of predator to just that necessary to replace the dying?
