Don't just read the rubbish from the religious websites such as "Answers in Genesis".
ive read good scientific stuff about it and there not nearly enough evidence to convince me.

there are certain unproved things in Evolution yet..

but i believe the general direction is right...

like at least we got to believe we evolve and our society improve are because we work and we seek for better....not some sort of GOD created everything and we just enjoy

Yet a single book is capable of convincing you?

Quite a good query

my pastor tends to think that those who doubt evolution are all supporters of CREATION by God.....

One of the biggest points of contention between Creationists and those who support evolution is the idea that Creationists think that God has somehow been taken out of the equation by evolution. I would argue the exact opposite. Evolution is as near to perfection in nature as you're ever going to see. The way an animal such as the finches of the Galapagos could adapt their beaks to find more food sources seems like a divine means of ensuring that life continues despite hardships. And most importantly of all, one of the main arguements of Creationists in fact, the divine spark - when enough amino acids and particulates came together to create life - that was God most assuredly. I think that you can very well believe in God and not be a Creationist. You're just not accepting that some shepard 4000 years ago was a better scientist than those today.

I found the vampire Finch most interesting. They developed longer beaks and prey on the blood of the Boobies (birds). The theory is that they adapted from a tick picking variety and found the blood of the Boobie easy to get and much higher in protein.

It's not "Just" a theory. Theories are models that are practically as close to fact as you can get without exact, 100% proof simply because the scale in which it operates (whether temporal or size) makes it difficult or impossible for us to observe with current resources.
Theories are to be taken very seriously. The only reason why evolution remains a "theory" is because we never really got to observe Primeelephas start to die out like crazy and have 3 different designs, the Asian elephant, African elephant and the Mammoth come out of the womb (over many generations no doubt). Now there's plenty of evidence out there to back this up, but we cannot watch it unfold in front of our very own eyes with a camera rolling.
Gravity is also a theory. I doubt you'll be not taking that seriously.

Anyways I'm not here to get into a never-ending argument wethers its true or not, but simply to to point out that little know fact.



well, you are right in one point. however, beyond this theory arguement, there is the reality on the table: there is no proof for evolutionary theory. Is there? Mechanisms of it are not valid, the origin of life cannot be explained ... so and so on......
