  • Well on the most basic form viruses and bacteria. Hepatitis which now has around seven forms. Bacteria that has become resistant to certain antibiotics. The flu keeps evolving too. I'm pretty sure the link posted above will tell you loads more. The question is will you actually look at it or you just posting to cause drama?? Because if you're not going to bother you're wasting our time.

  • If there is evidence to support evolution, why do I keep seeing apple trees that only grow apples, monkeys that only give birth to monkeys, fish that continue to be fish (instead of crawling with their new feet out of the oceans), dogs not giving birth to cats? Look out your window and use basic logic. Do things change? Yes. WITHIN the species. Nothing has ever changed to something outside of it's own species and been observed by humanity. It is absolutely impossible to come up with an animal that never existed because of one changing to it. Same for plants. You can only change things within a species - and that typically happens when mankind meddles with them moreso than the changes occuring on their own. There's no need to make a case FOR creationism. It's so very obvious. Evolution takes a great leap of faith!

    Because it doesn't work that way and evolution is an extremely slow process. It takes millions of years for things to evolve. It doesn't just happen overnight.

    Creationism makes absolutely no logical sense. It is magic, fairy tales, myth like every other creation story thought up by primitive man. Evolution is supported by science and facts that can be studied and proven/disproven.

  • >>Do things change? Yes. WITHIN the species. <<


    Yes. And if you do a little research on Darwin, that's exactly what his theory IS! Man did NOT descend from monkeys. He never said that. Humanity has changed over time...even over the past few hundred years there have been changes making us taller and often healthier thanks to the better availability of food.

    The theory of evolution doesn't leave God out. To think so is a misunderstanding.

  • Evolution is simply adaption. Which we see everyday of our lives. Do you really think that everything that is here has always been here exactly the same as it is today? Over time humans have learned to adapt to the changing weather, illnesses, and threats of the times. We have become smarter and healthier than our ancestors. Our life expectancy grown dramatically from that of people even three generations back. Maybe our evolution of our physical has been completed for a time. Maybe we have only been witness the evolution of our minds.
    To think that there is only one answer is a little foolish. There is no one answer that can explain how we came to be. There are always little things that can't be explained.
