A question for which theTheory of Evolution apparentley has no answer!

And? Its a theory. That's the point. Nobody is claiming its the absolute truth. Its the best mechanism for explaining a set of observed phenomena we've come up with.
Funny, scientists haven't been willing to get a new theory to replace evolution ever since Darwin popped up with it. And strangely, it isn't falsifiable, all problems can be answered with "the fossil record isn't complete yet." Nothing is ever difficult or obscure when you turn to God. Try it out.
Actually, the original theory has been modified over the years, particularly as fields like genetics have advanced or new observations are made. That's the way it works.
There isn't anything the Word of God can't explain. Which makes sense, since it's from God. And the one case proves a lot, if no answer can be given for it. Just like the question of bird and human origins.
That just displays a lack of understanding of how science works. There have always been things that can't be explained. When these things finally get explained, new problems are found and we seek explanations for them. There will probably always be unexplained things, but the point is that we understand more and more about the universe and how it works.
For example, when Newton came up with his theories about Gravity, this was a great step forward. As observational methods improved over the centuries, discrepancies were found and new theories established. No doubt these theories may well be discarded and replaced.
One case proves nothing.
I believe in evolution in as much as it was a tool God used to diversify the world. But He created the first birds, rodents, mammals and fish. Evolution took over from there. And roughly 50,000-100,000 years ago, He made us.
Dinosaurs were animals on the earth at some period in time. They kept the earth systems taken care of while it was really hot.
Now this is interesting.
So, you're happy that dinosaurs existed, and that they existed before humanity? How long did they exist for?
Can you expand on 'kept the earth systems taken care of while it was really hot' - exactly when was it really hot? What did dinosaurs do to take care of the earth's systems? (Sorry, but I have a vision of dinosaurs sitting at PCs answering help-desk calls).
I've never heard this sort of explanation for dinosaurs before, so I'm just curious.
