Coyne classifies two types of islands, continental islands and oceanic islands (page 100) Evolution uses these two types of islands to point out that the oceanic islands that are missing similar types of species so if a creator had made all the animals everywhere than this wouldn't be the case. Coyne then goes on to explain that this is an example of the "blend of chance and lawfulness" (page 109) of evolution when distributing life on earth. First, define the two types of islands. Then find examples of species that are found on main lands and continental islands but not on oceanic islands. Explain how oceanic islands can be considered to always have been separated hence why evolution of certain species did not occur there when the well established principle of pangea is accepted as truth. If all of the land was once together than wouldn't evolution occur similarly on all of the land that broke off? Not just some of it? Doesn't calling evolution a blend of chance and lawfulness give support to Creationism? If evolution is one large part chance that we do not explain in a scientific way then isn't there a gap open for divine intervention? How is it chance that the birds migrated to the Galapagos islands, they must have had a scientific reason for leaving where they came from in the first place and another reason to stay on the island therefore how is that chance at all? Use examples in your explanation.
