My fundie cousin is one of those young Earthers who subsequently doesn't believe in evolution (Her words "No!! God created us....we are not evolved apes."). She's also into the whole build your immune system and you'll never get sick hype.
So she posts this link on FB today ...
I read it and then I have to ask her..
" I'm trying to understand how you can post an article which talks about things evolving...since the very idea of evolution is against your beliefs"
She asks which article and asks if I mean the GMO one..
I reply "Yup.. it mentions something evolving from something else, in the case of the article plants evolving from other plants... and the transfer of genetic material from the parent to the child.. which is in effect the very thing you don't believe in-- evolution. Which leads to my not understanding why you'd post it, if it essentially contradicts your beliefs.."
I follow that with "Just to be clear, not trying to pick a fight.. trying to get a better understanding as to how/why that would happen."
Her : "I don't believe we as humans evolved from apes.... doesn't mean I don't believe that plants can't evolve and change over time much like humans as our surroundings and diets change we change. Another example is an inter-racial child..... changes can happen."
