Oh I know they exist...you ask for physical evidence of a non physical reality. Quite absurd.
No, you believe they exist, against all evidence tht says otherwise and for no rational reaason.

Verifiable evidence does not have to be physical, it just has to produce the same results for everyone that tests it.
"evidence","res ults", "tests"...these are scientific terms that apply to the physical world....not the metaphysical.

The "evidence" of the metaphysical world comes not by way of logical assessment, but by direct experience.

Actually the claim that it was unreliable is unreliable since it was science that found it to be unreliable and you don't accept most modern science as it is unreliable anyway. Ahh, feck it. Let's just say aliens did it.
So if scientists are always making corrections on scientific data for evolution, then how can you say the theory is based on facts? Don't worry, more questions will come from me and when you can provide real evidence for it, then it will be real science. But until you can keep trying...lol.

LOL. Charles Darwin was a racist. There's no prove that all life arose from one common ancestor. I am not surprised that the evolutionist theories are collapsing. Atheist science defend Darwinism like a religion. What a big fraud! One Hoax after another. They are so quick to announce their fake evolution discoveries, but they are not so quick to expose their mistakes and disproven conjectures.
And you're telling me that there is proof of an invisible man that lives in the sky that judges all you do? Wizard of Oz type stuff there. I'd much rather make accusations concerning science then make accusations concerning fairies and wizards! You're so quick to denounce the findings of science when you have a religion that disproves itself.

when the data does not provide reproduceable results then one needs to look for new data. the theory did not change, just some bad data.

and that is exactly right...like I said before, science is ideologically lame, when it comes to truth.

The theory answers many of the questions of how life got here. It does not answer all of them.

We are always learning more all of the time. Science is set up so that knowledge can be added. We don't have to start all over from scratch with every new discovery.

Narrow minded observation there. Of course science is full of corrections. If we knew the end result to begin with...why would we need science? Lets look at the other side of the debate. The church taught that the world was indeed flat. "To assert that the sun does not revolve around the earth is as erroneous to assert that Jesus was not born a virgin" - Cardinal Bellarmine at Gallileo's trial. But a correction was made. Who knows what else needs correcting in religion. Perhaps the eradication of religion all together.

and that is why it's not for you...when you close yourself to possibility, then you automatically close the door to reality.

I am open to the idea, but without any proof at all, it is just fantasy. for you. for me. for everyone.

you can wish and think about it all you want, but that will not make it real.
