Evolution is a useless theory (Talk.Origins)
The theory of evolution is useless, without practical application.

- Wieland, Carl. 1998. Evolution and practical science. Creation 20(4) (Sept.): 4.
Talk Origins response is based on both a misrepresentation of Creation and what is meant by the theory of evolution in the claim. What is meant by the theory of evolution in the claim is clearly the common descent of all life on Earth from a common ancestor, also called the General Theory of Evolution. They are implying that creation allows no room for any variation at all while assuming that all variation is Evolution. Yet Creation Science explains the similarities and differences between organisms.
- The similarities and differences between organisms of different Created kinds are readily explained based on the design principle; that similarities result from similarity in function and differences result from differences in function.
- The similarities and differences between organisms within a Created kind are readily explained based on variations within a Created kind.
None of Talk Origins’ examples are a result of the General Theory of Evolution so the claim is still correct.
