ahhh... so you do believe.
I would even say that you had faith in the bible...the killing part anyway, because you except it without question.
Which I would definitely call faith.
Never even stopped to consider did you?
wherein lies your true faith...can you deny?
think about it.
Wow.

What a dumb argument.

Think about it.

Oh, sorry, forgot who I was quoting here.(shrug)

The species which evolve the most are the ones which undergo the most stress which they could overcome.
If what you say about sharks and crocodiles is true, then sharks and crocodiles have not undergone much stress which made evolution necessary for survival.
On the other hand, if a population undergoes stress which it CANNOT overcome, that population goes extinct.
Apparently, that is what happened to the trilobites.
Polar bears are descended from dark-colored bears which happened to get caught on the wrong side of the glacier.
At first, they were readily visible by their prey. So the darker colored bears died of starvation, leaving the gene pool open for the lighter colored members.
So how do explain hair loss? Why did early humans lose their hair and then hunt for fur to keep warm?

When people die, the bond between the soul and the human body is severed. When the soul's connection to the material world is severed, the soul is free to go and dwell in the spiritual realm, which would include places like Heaven. A soul cannot be detected with instruments designed to detect physical properties such as mass and energy so its currently impossible to get the evidence of a soul's existance.
Perhaps one day somebody will design and build an instrument that can detect the properties of spirits.
You could have just shortened that down to "I got jack all evidence!"

Metaphysics after all, is "beyond" physics...which by its very nature is undefinable.

I ask for evidence, and you give more assertions, now you have more things to provide evidence for. You should get busy if you want to be taken seriously.

Actually, the timeframe where humanity lost it's fur is predicted to have occurred fairly early while the species was still in Africa. The idea is that humanity started to sweat to control body heat, and the theory is based on the estimated time frame when human body lice broke away from their parent species found with apes.

Free Servant, how do you know if an agate crystal looks like Jesus?
Do we have any portraits from Jesus' time to compare it with?
I am sorry my reply button doesn't seem to be working. I have been trying to tell you I don't have any agates that I think look like Jesus.

You keep asking for evidence like you're a private investigator but when you're asked you don't provide explanations for your own assertions
