God hates squid
In this article, a famous biologist makes the bold assertion that "God hates squid." Some creationists go so far as to say that octopuses and even giant squid could be considered "nonliving" creatures, and their articles explain why.
Regarding the linked e-mail, the argument that one may distinguish between living and nonliving on the basis of whether or not an animal's blood has a heme group is supported neither by context nor linguistic, nor even a common sense reading of the first chapter in Genesis.
The argument is a straw man, and ultimately collateral. Life is remarkably intricate, interconnected, and incomprehensibly complex. Unless one believes in existance without a cause, or some other self-destructing metaphysic, an eternal unchanging first cause transcendent of time and space must exist.
I'm going to say a little prayer......................There, you probably didn't know but now I've told you.
I'll be waiting for you to do something about this crap.
