Creation Moment 6/28/2017 - pre-darwin Lucretius (yes I spelled darwin with a small "d")

So Lucretius thought like Darwin?..So?....
.......and there is no new thing under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 1:9
"Roman writer and philosopher Lucretius (99-55 B.C.) that "the new earth first put forth grass and bushes, and next gave birth to the races of mortal creatures springing up many in number in many
ways after diverse fashions."

Lucretius description of natural selection also refers to bizarre monsters (e.g., dinosaurs) which he believed nature did not allow to exist with mankind. "Nature set a ban on their increase and they could not reach the coveted flower of age nor find food nor be united in marriage..."

Lucretius wrote. "And many races of living things must then have died out and been unable to beget and continue their breed." Those which survived, he adds, had qualities which "protected and preserved each particular race." RA
