Some cat evolved to be a killing machine, other evolved to live in the Antarctic wastes while others evolved to live with us as humans.
    When it comes to larger scale multi-celled organisms I will admit that over millions of years the amount of times a species adapts can be considered as "Evolution", but I'm still stuck on the beginning of the theory in its entirety. If someone had scientific proof of a single-celled organism becoming a multi-celled organism, even if it were through a research study that took hundreds of years, then I would have to agree. But right now, to me at least, the coin term "Evolution" still seems to just be a branch off of tiny adaptations that just add up to a larger scale.

    btw, the article is clearly contradicting Natural selection...so you didn't read it.
    I didn't read because it was wrong like you said, and I was only correcting your comment. That is natural selection, now if you want me to understand. Give me a link you want me to peek at and give me a statement.

    What about apes? It's a known facts that humans and other apes split thousands of years ago into different line of genetic and more. Which explained why we are related to some by around 96%. While evolution isn't my best subject or best studied. I think I can get a firm grasp of it.

    Then how did animals obtain the freedom of human choice rather than running off of animal instinct. Evolution can't change nature. I believe we are "similar" to apes, yes, but I still do not believe we are a direct descendant. That is still a theory.

    That's when civilization starts, after we split off from apes we started following herds of animals for food. We were nomads. Then after we developed our agriculture system, we had time to learn skills, logic, engineering, art, etc.

    But it does change nature, natural selection plays a key part of it. Which is why I asked about the apes, because there is other human species there but they all died out. Species like finches adapted and changes itself depending on the enviroment said creature is located and nevs pretty much got a good statement of what I was looking for.

    I believe in natural selection, I was going to post a research article on how evolution is the only known cause for adaptation.

    Fine
    Evolution has been observed and it's pretty much accepted. I mean ... even the fucking pope accepted it.

    Also, as Ashley Montague said: "Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof".

    I love how people start arguing about evolution when neither party has any FUCKING clue what it actually is.

    I'm not going to bother formulating a proper response, since I have argued about this many times before. I haven't read all the responses but the majority of you people have no clue what you are talking about. That may or may not apply to you, but I suggest you use proper grammar before attempting to sound smart ass.

    Come into the topic, call everyone ignorant, then a feeble attempt at an insult. If you arn't even going to give your opinion on the subject, even though you claim you know so much about it, then why reply in the first place? I suggest you leave and spam somewhere else or actually post up what you think is right.
