Evolution does no such thing.<quoted text>
Evolution builds upon abiogenesis (another unproven theory) in which the first simple life form came into being.
Chemical abiogenesis is completely separate from the evolution of species.
HOWEVER the first life came about (abiogenesis, alien seeding, Jesus saying "POOF!"), we know conclusively that subsequently species evolved one from the other in nested hierarchies by means of genetic variation plus natural selection.
??? Life is already here. No need for the original abiogenesis to take place.<quoted text>
(Funny we are not seeing abiogenesis today).
And the earth is greatly different than it was 4 billion years ago.
It's not NECESSARY for successive generations to be more complex. Sometimes they are LESS complex, as polymath pointed out for example, the situation of cave fish losing their eyesight because they don't NEED it in the dark. Is that getting MORE complex or less complex?<quoted text>
But you are saying there is not a necessity to get more complex. Then how did it become more complex?
We don't "believe" in evolution, like you "believe" your Genesis myth as literal, factual history. We ACCEPT the science behind evolution because there is a mountain of evidence and experimentation to support it. If there were no such evidence, we would not accept evolution. You, however, would still accept your Bible stories, because you've been TOLD they are true.<quoted text>
As I said it is faith. But until there is conclusive evidence for evolution, why should I believe it.
And in SCIENCE, there has been conclusive evidence to support evolution for at least 150 years. It is only in some fundamentalist Christian sects that it is said "there is no evidence," by folks working an ignorant religious agenda.
