Think evolution is a crock?

I don't see any problem with evolution. God could still have created it all. It just happened as a process.

Really funny video, by the way. One question, though: Who believes in space travel???

I'm glad you don't have a problem with evolution. However, I heard an even better theory on the radio recently-- This guy wrote a book discussing why he thinks that aliens from another planet dropped humans off on Earth... sounds plausible to me.

I just have a quick question: Does anyone believe that the moon-landings were a crock? I have a friend who claims that it was. Just curious. He saw some presentation on Fox about it...

Just a thought:

Evolution is not a falsifiable theory.

Evolution is fact.

We've seen bacteria and viruses evolve.

That's why we're told to take all of our antibiotics-- otherwise the bacteria might evolve.

But yes, the evolution of the human species is not falsifiable-- it is does have strong evidence though.

What is that evidence?

Oh and the issue of bacteria and viruses I believe is an issue of micro- versus macroevolution. We do have considerable evidence for mirco-evolution, but I'm not so sure we do for macro-evolution. If you have some evidence, I would like to hear it.

Micro and macro evolution are essentially the same thing. Macroevolution would occur when a species microevolves so much that it can no longer be categorized as the original species.

As for evidence, I suggest looking to fossil records.
Don't bother fighting me on this-- I know evolution of the human species can't be proven. But the fact that there is fossil evidence of apes that are more similar to humans than modern apes, the fact that we have proof of microevolution, and the fact that survival of the fittest makes perfect (common)sense-- makes evolution seem like the most reasonable theory.
