As far as I am concerned there is no way to argue with evolution if you wanna try be my guest but you will look very stupid.

Well darwinism or natural selection is very simple. Say their are a species of lizards in a desert. Theres the small ones big ones and little ones. All the rocks in the desert are the size of the small lizards though.Suddenly a group of birds comes to the desert and starts to eat the lizards.So all of the large and medium lizards can be easily seen and only the small survive. Making this species of lizard shrink in size or so to speak.I also believe in other forms of evolution.

1) About evolution as a mechanism for createing speicies, this is absolute scientific fact. You can prove this is true by making new speicies of bacteria, and all the evidence points towards the fact that this a has made all the current speicies on the planet.

2) About the big bang theory. There is definate evidence that points towards this being the case, and the majority of astrominers would agree this is the most likely explenation of the universe. The evidence for this is the fact that the theories that predict the existance of the big bang also predict many things that are correct. However the Big Bang theory is just a theory, and there are almost certanly some details that are wrong with it, if an experiment could be done which disproves the theory it would have to be rewritten, this is becuase its scinence not faith.

Quite the contrary, actually, it is the other way around. Evolution is science, not faith. There has been much research done, and the results have yielded much to suggest that we evolved from an ancestry of apes, which in turn evolved, over the stretch of millions of years, from aqueous creatures that gradually made their way onto dry land. Those who believe otherwise are simply dismissing the facts in favor of a biased, often religious philosophy, which is unfortunately quite common.

i'd like to see the "facts" for that, if you please, not the speculation.

The evidence for this is the fact that the theories that predict the existance of the big bang also predict many things that are correct.

that is not evidence at all. say for example, you write a paper, and in it you correctly explain why an apple falls toward the ground, and the forces involved. then at the end you say that god made the apple. just becuase the paper explains many things that are correct, it does not make everything in the paper correct.

About evolution as a mechanism for createing speicies, this is absolute scientific fact. You can prove this is true by making new speicies of bacteria, and all the evidence points towards the fact that this a has made all the current speicies on the planet.

have sciencetists ever seen one type of species evolve into another type? or seen a chicken lay an egg and out comes another animal?

eveolution is not a debate it happens every day in front of your nose and those who do not believe it dont understand it.

maybe i'm just not understanding something, but how does it happen every day right before our eyes? also can science prove definatly that the big bang did take place?

Its a clear fact that animals and whatnot adapt to their environment. Sure, it is only one point with evolution, but it is a huge one that is clearly scientifically based.

Quick example: If you put an iguana or something along those lines in a really small cage, it will actually adapt to its environment and not grow as fast, or as much as another iguana offspring would in a vast cage, or not even in a cage for that matter.

I just don't see any logical explanation that would change my opinion that evolution is based on faith, not science. I guess there are a few points that are, but they are moot compared to the rest.

That things adapt to their environment is a fact, that people were created that way is speculation.

adapting to an enviroment and evolving into a diffrent species are two vastly diffrent things

Adaptation and evolution are basically directly correlated.

You must do your research. :faq:
