Well if you can get a pixalated Pokemon to evolve into a mammal, feel free to Call the Scientific community.

I've already let Stephen Hawking know, and he has already made plans to let his chair evolve into a Charmander.

Don't know about the cat and dog ,but Lindsey Graham another one of the great republicans has ,I hear turned into the newest closet queen ,but then that is nothing really new for them.Science one day will tell us if he was just born that way or he ran into a Cleotis on the way up the latter.

According to google 4.54 Billion years old. According to biblical experts 6 billion give or take a few . Perhaps millions because I have yet to see biblical referance agreed on by more than 1. LOL

You have not observed any evolution of a species as the time man has been on the planet is a tick in the overall clock (some 120,000) if you count the find called Lucy then some 2.8-3.9 million years from that species. In a place that has seen 9 billion years like I said just a tick-tock in the total scale.

The age old question: If man evolved from monkeys why are there still monkeys?
I mean real monkeys not just people that act like monkeys like Joe, Albert and Doodypile.

That's not an age old question. That's an idiots question.

Humans didn't evolve from monkeys. Great apes and humans share a common ancestor.

Your question is like saying, if I evolved from my grandmother, why are my cousins still around?

Also, evolution HAS happened since humans have been around. Psst, the answer is in the bugs. You know, those little critters that burn through generation after generation in the matter of days or weeks. Heck, provable evolution has happened since the INDUSTRIAL AGE.(Butterflies look it up)

They have not changed much in our life time but they have evolved into what they are today from the past,surly you do not belive that they have always been as they are today.You are one of those that think God will come back of you in this lifetime,hello Cleotis.

In about 30 seconds I found this. It is indeed a good explanation:
>Has any species ever evolved into another species at any point in history?
"Yes.
Although I should correct an underlying assumption I detect, that evolution of a new species is "one species evolving into another species." This of course is nonsensical, as the definition of "species" means a group of organisms that can interbreed (so it doesn't make sense to compare an ancestor with a distant descendant to wonder if they are a "different" species). Instead, evolution of a new species is always about a single species branching into TWO species that are incapable of interbreeding.
Of course, if you mean an existing species evolving into another already existing species (like a dog evolving into a cat) then of course not ... but that is a ridiculous caricature of what evolution says ... so you should be a bit embarassed if that's what you meant.
So I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are asking if there is evidence "in history" of a species giving birth to new species (what we call 'speciation').
If you mean the history of the earth, then yes, of course. This evidence is recorded in fossils, and in the genes, and in the DNA of every living creature alive today.
If you mean recorded history (the last few thousand years), then yes, this has occurred recently. Again, the evidence is not in the recording of history (as the very notion of "species" is a scientific one, and therefore very recent), but in the genes and DNA of many recently established species.
Do you mean in the history of science (the last few hundred years)?
It may surprise you to learn that the answer is still Yes.
Even though evolution of new species can take hundreds of thousands to millions of years, there are many examples documented in nature, and in the lab, of a species branching into two species."
Don't believe me? Here:
"Observed instances of speciation"
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/faq-spec …
"Some More Observed Speciation Events"
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/speciati …
"Natural speciation" (see examples)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speciation #… <
In other words, it's a stupid damn question. I doubt that cleo will be embarrassed though because he will probably dismiss the above explanation as nonsensical liberal gibberish (if he even reads it). In other words, it doesn't matter how much scientific evidence there is to support evolution, there are those who just will not accept it. Scientific reasoning, especially in areas like this, are a direct threat to long held beliefs that are so strongly held and engrained in some folks that even trying to think that their beliefs may be just a bit suspect is just too much for them to grasp. They have no choice but to lash out at reason and try to make reason itself the target of ridicule. So let them keep believing that the Earth is only 6-10 thousand years old and that dinosaurs and people roamed the Earth at the same time, or that evolutionary theory says that people came from monkeys (which is one of the most ridiculous claims about evolution that gets bandied about as if therefore the theory itself must be suspect) etc. And they can go to the "Creation Museum" in Kentucky and have their silly ignorant beliefs affirmed.

It's only an age old question asked by imbeciles. As SG said, Evolutionary Theory says no such thing and never has.

Note: Now watch as the creationists start in on the "it's only a Theory" issue. As in "See even you call it a theory, bla bla bla…..". So don't even bother. That's not even open for discussion until you can distinguish the difference between how science/scientists define and use the term 'theory' as opposed to the layman's usage.
