1. no, actually there is an abundance of fossil evidence. I don't know where your sources are coming from, but I can prove to you if you want that fossil evidence of all animal/plant phyla kingdoms in the fossil record is well established and documented. This biblical 'flooding of the world' event you have made reference to is a story. Floods don't cause continents to seperate. Continents seperate via a process called plate tectonics. The Grand Canyon, is not a result of plate tectonics, but rather it is a result of water erosion over billions of years. That is how canyons are formed- by water and/or wind erosion.
environmental adaptations are micro evolution (what makes you look different from your brother). These is completely different to Darwinian evolution.
2. Microevolution is now part of the evolution theory. I am well aware of micro vs macro evolution. (I am majoring in evolutionary biology btw). Micro evolution is a gradual change in gene pools, often over long evolutionary time periods. Charles Darwin considered such change to be directed by, and to result from, natural selection, but we now know that chance, termed random genetic drift, a process not envisaged by Darwin, also plays a major role. Evolutionists have a much better understanding of microevolution, particularly with respect to the effect of selection.
are you sure you want these to go do as evidence for evolution? It speaks more of a creator than the outcome of mere chance?
4. Yes I am very sure. Genetic material forms the blueprint to life. The theory of evolution would be rather blank without knowing and using genetic material. Evolution involves changes over time in the genetic composition of populations. Genetic evidence is found for example, from the origins of life, the Hardy-Weinberg Law, mutations, genetic drift, gene flow, nonrandom mating, natural selection regarding inheritence. All of those are examples of genetic evolution.
Also how do you explain the 'irreducible complexity' of cells?
Your wrong. Cells are reduced down to many levels. This is well established. I'll give you a brief explination instead (obviously you won't understand it, but this is a cell reduced down to its lowest level)
cells>organelles>proteins>polypeptides>amino acids> RNA>
nucelotides> sugar, phosphate group, nitrogenous base>element>atomic molecule>atom
Hope that helps PeteSmith. Ethereal:
Also it cannot explain where the world came from
yes, evolution only explains the origin and changes of life (which dates back approximately to 3.5 billion yrs ago). The origin of earth is part of other theories such as the big bang for instance. okcitykid:
this 'superiority' of the humankind is explained by evolution. And yes, as you mentioned, homeo sapiens is currently the most dominant species, which has some significant control on our global environment.
