    Darwinism does not take into account random events, though evolution is said to be based off completely random anomalies resulting in alterations at the genetic level. Both can not be correct in unison, which is where the hole in evolutionary theory comes to fruition. Also, Darwinism takes into consideration of genetic alterations in due of that of the dominant species, whereas evolution is based on the adaptation of a species for survival in general. They contradict each other.

    Evolution is based on adaptation due to random events. If a species is already well in their environment, they will not die out, they will just stay the same. If something were to occur, a part of the species might be better adapted to that change and reproduce more and the less adapted will just die out. If none of the species can live through that change, they will just go extinct.

    Nigga you recapped the part of evolution I actually believe, though I just call it adaptation as the species subject to said changes are already in the natural environment, the issue I have with evolution isnt part of adaptation, it's how it started. though my first post didn't help my cause considering it's just a theory of mine. However, if a scientist said it people would be more keen on listening to it

    I agree with you that 1 cell evolved into millions of cells that work together to make 1 being doesn't sound very plausible... but you kind of to take in the fact that the earth had life on it around 3.7-3.8 billion years ago and that leaves a lot of time for stuff to happen that may be unknown to us.

    I respect your opinion on the subject. But I prefer to believe in "Survival of the fittest/Adapt or die" makes more sense to me then religious non-sense.

    To extend on this enter Hardy weinberg equilibrium model
    In order for evolution not to happen
    1. mutation is not occurring
    2. natural selection is not occurring
    3. the population is infinitely large
    4. all members of the population breed
    5. all mating is totally random
    6. everyone produces the same number of offspring
    7. there is no migration in or out of the population

    Lehsyrus Darwin is outdated, modern evolutionary biology please.

    lol we don't know the beginning of anything.
    Evolutionary biology is the closest we have and probably ever will get to understanding our origins. The problem with your theory is the assumption that things just don't go "poof" and start working.

    I'm saying evolution occurs when any one of these 7 things happen.

    Pull out a book written by god, dig up some bones and say they were your ancestors, there is still going to be lingering doubt.
    well evolution has some strong facts such as the dolphin how it said to be evolved of a land mammal(like a dog/wolf)
    it still has the legs in its fin

    It probably adapted and it's body changed from legs to fins so it can survive the flood during Noah's Ark. /
