Mammals cannot evolve fast enough to escape current extinction crisis

The sixth mass extinction is underway, this time caused by humans. A team of researchers have calculated that species are dying out so quickly that nature’s built-in defense mechanism, evolution, cannot keep up. If current conservation efforts are not improved, so many mammal species will become extinct during the next five decades that nature will need 3-5 million years to recover to current biodiversity levels. And that’s a best-case scenario.

I read scientific paper after scientific paper detailing the harm we’re causing to the environment. Then I see those mouth breathing idiots currently in charge of the government denying the science and cutting funding for scientific efforts at help and my blood just boils. :rage:

New mammal species are appearing at an alarming rate.

I must have missed God’s views on speciation. Which book of the bible was that in, exactly? AiG seems to have forgotten the reference.

AIG draws heavily from the “New Apocrypha” book of First Opinions.
