When critters have similar characteristics (such as echolocation in both bats and dolphins) but no close relative in Darwinspeak, evolutionists invoke the miracle of convergent evolution. This term gets bandied about by these owlhoots as an "evolution of the gaps" rescuing device, the gaps are in scientific knowledge.

Atheists and evolutionists will tell you that they believe in science and evidence. Common-ancestor evolution has precious little evidence, and convergent evolution has zilch. Zero. Zip. Nada. Then they say that we believe things without evidence. Hypocritical, methinks.
I reckon it's too much for Darwinists to consider that the Creator used the same design features, no, that's not naturalism, so it cannot be considered.
Why do they embrace convergent evolution so eagerly? Because it serves as a rescuing device for an important dogma of evolutionary theory. (A rescuing device is a completely fabricated conjecture devised to save someone’s theory from contrary evidence.)Y'all can find out what Papa Darwin taught and read this extremely informative article by clicking on "Major Evolutionary Blunders: Convergent Evolution Is a Seductive Intellectual Swindle".
Evolutionary theory holds that physical features shared by different creatures are strong evidence for evolution. To evolutionists, common traits are best explained by their descent from a common ancestor—not by a shared common design. Darwin taught:
The idea of "convergent evolution" is spoken with authority when discussing common traits in diverse life forms. It is an overused rescuing device to cover up for lack of actual knowledge.
