Scientists have identified that domesticated chickens (Gallus domesticus) were descendants of the Red Jungle Fowl...
I don’t have a problem with that. Speciation is just as much a part of a creationist’s belief system as it is for an evolutionist. It is something that we can test and observe over and over again. It is what Darwin observed on the Galapagos Islands. The difference lies in the conclusions we draw from the observations.
Now, you say that donkeys and horses are different species, that’s fine I don’t have any trouble with that. However, even though horses, donkeys, and even zebras can be viewed as different species, they are all the horse kind. Animals do change but there are limits to how much they can change. There can be many different varieties of horses produced, but the bottom line is they are all still horses. No matter how much selective breeding and genetic manipulation scientists do, they will never get a horse to turn into a cow. And there is nothing in science to contradict that statement.
Oh and Aquatus, you do realize that you didn’t solve the chicken/egg problem. You just shifted it to another area. I could ask you now which came first the Red Jungle Fowl or the egg, and you end up right back were you started.
