Rationalising the Bible: Discussing evolution
Flies go through their generations faster than humans do, but that doesn't mean the fly evolves into anything other than what it already it; a fly. There may be genetic variations, but those variations are limited to what the fly already contains in its DNA.
This is a common error made by people who do not understand evolution. It is not a matter of one thing changing into another in a generation, but rather adaptation by an organism to its environment, as Darwin pointed out with birds on different islands on his travels. If a bird could conceal itself on one island using certain feather colourings, and it happened to arrive on another island where its colouring didn't suit the flora of the island, and thereby placed it at risk of easy detection, it would, after a few generations, adapt the feather colouring to become undetectable.
You never pointed to any transitional stages but only said that having a comparative anatomy explains common ancestor. I would rather hold to the fact that their is a common designer. It's not that this designer (God) couldn't make creatures look vastly different. He choose to make them look similar in some parts and different in others.
My post was merely an overview. As I explained above, the bird, in adapting to its new environment would go through a series of changes, and then the feather colouring that suited the environment would survive, whereas the early incarnations of the feather colouring would not, demonstrating natural selection and survival of the fittest. Those that didn't survive, if it were possible to trace them over the period of the transition, would be the "transitional" versions you are speaking about. You may hold to whatever opinions you have but if you're looking for "facts" you're not going to find them in a theologically based hypothesis as the one you've suggested.
These different species that you say evolved after the flood have common ancestors, which when counted would be about 16,000. In the story of Noah and the flood, God said that Noah take two of each kind, not species. The small variations that occurred to produce the vast amount of species we see today could happen because the genetic material in the DNA of that comment ancestor 'kind' allowed it to happen.
Interesting that you should mention Noah. Please explain, seeing that the fictional story of Noah was set in a time after the continents had moved away from each other, how Noah was able to bring animals from isolated places that he didn't know existed, and then after the flood was able to again place them back there. I would refer you to my essay about the flood which may be found here:

Please explain the evolution of chemistry (how the elements on the periodic table evolved), evolution of life/organic evolution (how that which is alive came from that which isn't alive), stellar evolution (how stars evolved), cosmic evolution (where time, space, and matter came from), and macro evolution (animals evolving past what their DNA, the genetic code, allows them to.
I'm not a physicist and I am not prepared to do research and write essays about things for which I'm not qualified to discuss. I'm also not prepared to do the research for someone who chooses to remain "anonymous" on the internet. However, I refer you to this post:Rationalising the Bible: A bedtime story...
To believe the religion of evolution takes more faith than to believe in the creator God.
You make an assertion about the Theory of Evolution being a "religion" please explain what rituals are involved in the worship of Evolution, what deity is worshipped, and what books and theology is written about this "religion." Calling it that demonstrates nothing other than ignorance about not only the Theory of Evolution but also about what "religion" is. The Theory of Evolution was formulated on thorough, properly examined evidence and peer review. Faith in a creator god is nothing other than a belief in the thumb-sucking of ancient goat herders.
