You do know that evolutionary biologist's, people who have spent their entire lives dedicated to the study of evolution, NEVER use the terms micro and macro when talking about evolution, it's a meaningless distinction for them. There is NO difference between microevolution and macroevolution. Creationist's and creation web sites try and use these terms in order to discredit the facts of evolution. There is NO difference between the two.<quoted text>
I “BELIEVE” in evolution on a microbiological scale.
I also made tons of intermediate chemicals for herbicides. We were on the cutting edge of herbicides chemistry. We had one cascade falling reactor system dedicated just for these intermediate chemicals directed to the farm industry.
Then we also had two dedicated continuous 3,000 gallon glass lined reactors running on a continuous basis. All of these reactions required a continuous flow of catalyst to keep the reaction going. None of these chemicals had a pleasant odor. They were toxic and smelled like dirty socks that reeked.
When I get time I will look at the evolutionary track for whales. The grandkids are coming over to spend the night and so I’m going to be busy. I do love you Doctor. Not in a homo way but as a son loves his father. I just wish you weren’t so pissed off all the time. Life is too short my Music Doctor.[tipping hat].
Really try and understand exactly what the term evolution means: Hereditary changes in a population over time, thats it. These changes occur for many different reasons. Better adaptation to the environment, natural selection. Reptiles have not changed much in millions of years, same with some insects because, they are so well adapted to their environment there is no reason for them to change. Alligators for example are perfectly adapted to their environment, no appreciable change would benefit them. Whales on the other hand have changed dramatically over millions of years, from a land mammal to a mammal in an aquatic environment. It has adapted to this environment despite the difficulties of a land mammal in an aquatic environment. No gills, it bears it's young live, and must, in the case of the Sperm whale, hold its breath and dive almost a mile down to feed.
I asked about insecticides because insect "evolve" to become resistant to insecticides, and newer and more powerful insecticides have to be used. The process of evolution is going on right now, in bacteria that "evolve" to become resistant to antibiotics, and in insects that do the same.
