Hoisted on my own pitard, so to speak. Upon looking in my dictionary I DID
use the term incorrectly. I should have used 'in error' rather than

Still awaiting an answer on this.

Nordenskjold also mentioned 'other facts of Darwin are all of 2nd rate
value'. Wonder what he meant by that?

Why did Hayward present a whole chapter on precisely what you were
referring to when you indicated that no reputable scientist disagrees with
evolution and defied anyone to come up with an answer to it. ( (This
simply isn't true. Macroevolutin is well regarded by almost all academics.
Can you cite a single, non-christian academic that says that evolution did
not occur?)

The quotation goes like this in Genesis 12:1. The Lord said to Abram,
"leave your country (or land, strong's 776) your people and your father's
household and go to the land (or country, Strong's 776) I will show you.
The context seems to indicate that God did not call Abram to leave earth
and go to Mars

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
