So you are ignoring 100% of the evidence just because it opposes your non-answer.

I remember you now. You babbled with this atrocious grammar and spelling before. You had some crazy name. I guess you were humiliated so badly you needed a mulligan on your screen name.

Sharks around Australia are currently in an aggressive state of evolution that is clearly observable.

Like we don't know that any atheist they claim as friends are really just their ex-brother-in-laws who will not go to church with them even on Easter(better things to do) and plenty of drink to imbibe, but come even a little molehill in their lives and they are on their knees wailing with the rest of the fambly.
If these friends were truly atheist, their cars would be keyed, no end.

Quite intelligent people who do Not go to church but often turn out to be agnostics, as atheism takes a bit too much faith.
Doubt if either political party will suffer an atheist as a serious candidate for President of the US. Obama,Biden, Clinton all reject magic atheism.

Oh you changed your screen name! You were on here before babbling about never taking any vaccines and refused to answer if you would take prescription medicine. And evolution was described dozens of times to you before. There is a difference between ignorance when the person just doesn't know and your kind of ignorance which is refusing to accept.
Evolution scares you because you were brainwashed by your church into thinking it was trying to disprove god and so you have to fight it.
So you were soundly humiliated on that name and had to switch it in shame.
Sorry but if you were smarter you wouldn't have to do that.

As has been explained to KJV there several times. Note he repeated his tired old appeal to authority logical fallacy. He's what you call a one trick pony like John.

At Starbucks just this morning I was discussing this with a believer who was humiliating himself to the waitress about the evils of evolution. So I asked him what was it about evolution that upset him so much.

He gave the usual rundown about how scientists today question certain facets of evolution, to which I responded that scientists question facets of all scientific theory it's how we progress. He continued on with the typical fundie talking points and I just smiled and shot them down one at a time and again asked him, you don't get upset over the theory of gravity do you? So what is it about evolution specifically that upsets you so much?

Finally he caved and admitted that if evolution is correct, god as he knows him can't exist. That the theory of evolution was trying to destroy faith in god.

I told him that evolution is merely observable fact. We see it in the fossil record as well as in genetic testing and that the evidence is only growing stronger by the day, but that doesn't show his god doesn't exist... The lack of any evidence whatsoever tells us the story on that lol!

The waitress thanked me for getting him off her back for a while as he is a regular who rambles on with her like Dave I guess.

Yep, you just ignore 100% of the evidence.

talkorigins.org is a good place for a lot of it.

What's the point of saying something if no one can read it? Spelling is just part of your problem, you also lack grammar.

Why would you expect Evolution to laugh out loud?

You're silly.
