Seems to me that as species adapt they evolve.

the theory that evolution caused completely new species to arise has NEVER had ANY evidence to support it.
Sorry, you're wrong. There are tons of examples of new species developing form a previous species - it's called speciation. You may want to do more research into speciation (here's an introductory link to explain it). This article describes some specific cases of speciation.

Yeah, never found one SHRED of evidence showing that kind of morphing. PLENTY of evidence for already-established species evolving into better-adapted variations, but no "was a mouse, became a platypus" stuff.
Actually any evidence of the "morphing" you're talking about would be evidence AGAINST evolution. Evolution does not claim that a mouse becomes a platypus - what it does say is that going back millions of years the mouse and the platypus shared a common ancestor.
EVERY new creature in the fossil record arrives on the scene fully-perfected, fully distinct from other creatures.
The existance of transitional fossils would indicate otherwise.

Creation & evolution are NOT mutually exclusive !
I totally agree! Also one can believe that the BIble is the inerrant Word of God and still accept the scientific theory of evolution is the bet natural explation for the diversity of life here on earth. (See the article Evolutionary Creation)
