Here eagle, I found a nice video for you. It sums up the theory of evolution very nicely, and is intended for the layman. Please have a look. I know that you will come back with another "durr, it's a fairy tale," but it's worth a shot.

Tim, that son of bit*h had to have drank 15 cups of black coffee and two meth pipes before he gave that speech, lol.

I would like to encourage everyone to go to this site and listen to this son of a bit*h talk.
He is the fastest talking salesman I have ever heard in my life.
That bastard has to be on meth. Tim I started laughing and couldn’t stop.
That as**ole has to be a auctioneer in real life.
That’s the funniest thing I have seen in a while. This guy should be on Americas Funniest Videos.
You were doing this all as a joke right, cause you when over the top with humor.
It was a compressed and edited video - all the random filler was removed. It's tailor made that way on purpose - to deliver the most information in the shortest amount of time. I thought it would be perfect for you.

Although I can see how it would be pretty funny if you didn't know what was going on. I didn't know it was supposed to be like that at first.

Eagle read the damn description under the video. You should like the video - it's intelligently designed to be as efficient as possible with it's information.

But yeah, that video is pretty hilarious now that I'm watching it while pretending that I can't notice the editing on it.

He makes several good points though. I'm assuming your not gonna watch it, so here are a few:

Why do human fetuses grow a coat of hair while in the womb only to shed it shortly before birth? Why would god make that happen?

Vestigal organs on whales - evidence of rear legs. Creationists apparently say that these bones are "penis struts," which is hilarious.

Why do we have (broken) genes that code for egg yolk?

Why do we have genes that code for vitamin c, even though our bodies don't actually make it?

Watch the video. I was trying to save you time by giving you a video with a lot of information - if it wasn't sped up and edited like that it would be a lot longer.

Why would I care? It is kinda funny if you don't understand what's going on - but it's edited like that specifically so that people ignorant of the subject can get a lot of information in a short period of time.

My good Doctor, you have more faith than I do. I just can't believe a wolf like animal was running in the ocean and then turned into a whale. I’m not going to belittle you my good man. You have just got all caught up in the evolutionary net of nonsense.
You inspired me to go and review the so called evidence. Just as I thought, someone’s wild and fantastic imagination. They take a fossil and magically associates it with whales. It’s a Carney high pitch sales job done on the public.
To believe in evolution one must believe in magic. Because that is what it would take for a four legged creature to morph into a whale. I don’t mean to be disrespectful to you my good Doctor, but you believe in fairy tales.

Rodhocetus

Name: Rodhocetus ( Rodho whale ).
Phonetic: Rod-ho-see-tus.
Named By: P. D. Gingerich, S. M. Raza, M. Arif, M. Anwar & &#8236;X. Zhou - 1994.
Classification: Chordata, Mammalia, Cetacea, Archaeoceti, Protocetidae.
Species: R. kasrani ( type ), R. balochistanensis.
Diet: Carnivore.
Size: A round 2.5 meters long.
Known locations: Pakistan.
Time period: Lutetian of the Eocene.
Fossil representation: Remains of 3 individuals.

Although not as well known as Pakicetus and Ambulocetus, Rodhocetus is nonetheless important to the study of how whales evolved from land animals. Rodhocetus is but one of a slowly but steadily growing number of transitional fossil genera, but in Rodhocetus the change can actually be seen across the species as well. The 2001 description of the second species, R. balochistanensis included recurved ankle bones which mean that the rear feet curved back towards the body. Later forms would take this progression with smaller rear limbs in line with the shape of the body until the point that the rear limbs were no longer visible. Study of Rodhocetus has also helped to establish an early origin of the mammals from artiodactyls like hippopotamuses rather than mesonychids like Mesonyx.

It's difficult to understand why anyone would believe in an imaginary being, especially since all religions profess completely different and contradictory imaginary beings. But then I guess most people simple never grow up and jettison concepts of santa claus.

I see it a whole lot differently, than you.

I applied for a job, when I was 16.{Details are not required for the story}

I had a dream that night about not getting the job.

A day or so later, every detail of my dream came true.

A few nights later, I had another dream about the job.

A day or so later, every detail of my dream came true.

Can you explain that? No.

Nearly 40 years has passed and I never experienced another dream that came true like those two did.

A scientist would study such an event and a believer would claim that god did it and they are sure that there is a reason behind it.
