evolution stamp by Apsaravis evolution stamp by Apsaravis
I'm tired of all those people saying "I don't believe in evolution because [insert random creationist crap here]". (And creationism includes all that "Intelligent Design" stuff, hope it's obvious)
You can't say "I believe/don't believe in evolution", because, well, it's not a matter of belief. :roll:
People who reject evolution most often simply have no idea what it is about and that's rather sad.

Unfortunately I have nothing to back up that statement...

Only joking.



The Peppered Moth  is a good example of natural selection at work.

The Italian Wall Lizards are an even better example.

Then there's the Cane Toad invasion that has indeed revealed evidence of adaptation.

And then there's the E. coli long-term evolution experiment .

So what do you think?

Can you give me some reports/observations from scientists, anything, to back up that statement?

Actually evolution has already been observed in nature. Obviously we haven't seen it to a really great extent like fish becoming reptiles but we have seen it happen nonetheless.

Neither the creation story nor evolution can be proven scientifically through observation and testing to be a scientific law.

I like your artwork, by the way.

It means more than that in the scientific world. Scientists have done studies and experiments so show that this is a very likely possibility that it is true. You read the definition of hypothesis.

I understand you have your beliefs and I respect that. I'm going to explain calmly (unlike others) our side of the story. There is fossil evidence from billions of years ago that show that evolution is real. (I forgot the name of the species sorry) there were fishes that were able to develop back bones (like us) that eventually led to land animals, and from natural selection we developed into humans. There is also evidence in our DNA codes that we are related to other species. I understand your confusion about other apes. Like different species of dogs, there are different species of apes. We have just branched off and removed ourselves from natural selection. In the next billions of years if the human race goes on, we will not change as much as others because we have artificial selection. Nature selects the individuals with disadvantages and cuts them out. But sometimes in genetic codes there is a mutism or animal that has an advantage and those beings move on. We humans do what we can to let everyone live and let them reproduce. I hope this is enough to answer your question. (Sorry if it's a little long)

No, you're missunderstanding something there. :/

You know how everything living consists out of cells, right? Imagine those as lego blocks.

Nowadays things like bacteria exist, they're made of one singular cell.
There's also multicellular beings; going from bigger bacteria to us, humans.

At the start of evolution a few of those cells, like lego blocks, connected, for the convenience of each other.
Similar to how clown fish and anemones live in Symbiosis, just more extreme because cells are tiny.

Some cells started being like "okay, we'll deal with toxins", and became something liver like, etc etc etc. So organs came to be. Skin came to be, eventually cells that could perceive senses...

Nothing came from a rock. Rocks are probably just where cells connected on to not be flooded away by water or something like that.
According to evolution you are a Big Primate, like chimpanzees or gorillas.
We are Homo sapiens sapiens, of the Genus Homo, Tribe Homini, Family Homonidae, from the Order Primates.

It goes further; we are from the class Mammalia, because we're mammalians like cats and dogs. We're Chordata, as in we aren't worms. And we are of the Kingdom Animalia, because we aren't plants, but animals as well.


Instead of saying it's just bull, please inform yourself better beforehand. You obviously don't quite know what you're talking about there.
