Who said GOD/Intelligent Design got it wrong in the design? One would want species with the ability to adapt since Earth is in constant change....

Im pretty familiar with fossils, I have studied them througout college, dug them out of the ground myself and held them in my own two hands. When a person does this its difficult to deny their existance.

I agree. I dont think it was a god or gods but species adapt or die based on changes in their environment. Were on the same page there.

Depends on what type of evolution you are referring to. Things haven't evolved from one species in to another. Fish haven't become chickens and apes haven't become man. Things evolve within species.
Evolution has never claimed to work that way...so that would be correct

wow angel if you have found transitional fossils you need to call the smithsonian and let them know immediately. Scientists have spent years and year and millions of dollars to find these missing links with no luck. All they have are bits and pieces that they somehow put together and fit their own belief system.

Interesting regarding the Pope's attitude toward money and the rich.

Pope Francis was in Argentina during "the dirty war" .

Pope Francis’ recent critical comments about the wealthy are potentially scaring off millionaire donors for the $180 million restoration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

That’s the message that billionaire Ken Langone, founder of Home Depot, passed along to Timothy Cardinal Dolan during a recent breakfast meeting.

Langone, who’s spearheading the restoration of St. Patrick’s, told CNBC on Monday that some wealthy Catholics were balking at giving their financial support to the project in the wake of the Pope’s teachings.

That website said it took six days to create the world.

It says it's true because it's in the Bible.

Do you believe that?

The day you find a transitional fossil of the type you're demanding to see as evidence of evolution (1/2 fish 1/2 zebra as an example of your stupidity) is the day you falsify the theory. Good luck with that.

BTW... The day you decide to actually learn about the Theory of Evolution and what it really is... is the day you might begin to not be as dumb as pocket lint
