I wanted to pose a question to those who do not believe in the theory of evolution. What specifically about evolution do you reject? Do you reject the idea of evolution only as it applies to humans, or do you reject the entire notion of organisms undergoing changes over time?
If you reject the entire notion of organisms undergoing change over time, how do you account for changes that can be seen in simple life over the course of our own observations? For instance scientists currently observe genetic drift and shift in viruses... the CDC constantly analyzes the DNA of flu viruses to see genetic changes that help them predict anything from what viruses are likely to circulate so they can create a vaccine against them to what viruses need monitoring because of their risk of sparking pandemics. If organisms don't change over time, what causes these changes to viruses?
I agree with the thinking presented on this site: http://www.answersingenesis.org

I can accept the idea of evolutionary adaptation of organisms, which would take place over a relatively short period of time. However, the idea that human life evolved from lower forms of life over millions of years is very unlikely. Evolution is a theory, that at it's heart, is a Godless system in which life began as a random event. Meaning that there was no purpose, no reason, no plan, it just happened. There is a difference between an evolutionary adaptation in organisms and animals and a full change from one species to another.
