Comment: Nonsense

"The only difference between macro and micro evolution is scale - they rely on the EXACT same mechanisms to occur. Don't you know that?"

No, and the reason I don't know that is because it's nonsense. You don't even understand your own general theory of evolution well enough to know the differences between natural selection, speciation and adaptation.

And you also don't seem to understand that every creature has genetic limits that prevent it from ever becoming another kind of creature because doing so would require new information not already present in the gene pool of that creature. New information doesn't magically appear - complex information does not come from less complex information. There are no rules, simple or otherwise, for creating something out of nothing, and information has to be present before molecular machinery can act on it.

Evolution fails the Law of Biogenesis - life only comes from life and no exceptions to that Law have ever been demonstrated.

Evolution fails Information Theory - evolution has no way to get either any initial information, or the information necessary for each increase in complexity.

Evolution fails the Universal Probability Bound by millions of orders of magnitude.

Neither mutations nor natural selection ever increase information.

Cambridge University’s Sir Fred Hoyle (originator of the Steady-State Theory of the Universe) said: "The notion that not only biopolymers but the operation programme of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on earth is evidently nonsense of a high order."
