    A really nice list of why evolution is how we got here, with actual easy to understand examples - the breeding of domesticated animals, the bacteria.

    Too bad its just a theory.

    We've known for thousands of years how we came to be, I don't need some scientist who created some theory a couple hundred years ago tell me something false.

    Not even going to read the article. Evolution is bullshit.

    You are also going to debunk the breeding of farm animals?

    Why do so many people think that "theory" in terms of science means "something that I guessed about without evidence."

    Theory in scientific terms is NOT the same word as theory would usually be. "It's only a theory" in scientific terms is "It's only a hypothesis", a theory in science refers to something that has been strongly supported by evidence that we more or less KNOW is actually a thing... like gravity, or wind resistance... or evolution.

    The latest hilarity is to say 'I believe only in micro-evolution'.

    Let's face it - the only reason evolution is so passionately(and amateurishly) disputed by the religious types is because it contradicts their holy book. Less proven theories aren't subject to attacks solely because they don't go against the word of god.

    Dude, gravity does not equal a theory nor does wind resistance. Wtf?

    Funny thing is, the laws of gravity should be stamped as a theory. My friend got

    That would come under Newton's theory of aerodynamics. Theorys based on gravity, and aerodynamics were kind of his thing.
