LOL<quoted text>So is the theory of evolution like in x-men mutation that allowed us to evolve from a single celled organism into the the humans we are now?
Nope. No super powers are involved.
It really is difficult to simplify evolution into something easily understood in the confines of a thread such as this.
But think of it this way.
We will just look at primate evolution for now as it is what leads to us.
Let's say you are an ancient primate (kind of look like an ape but not quite). Your natural environment is shrinking away (forest are turning into grasslands due to climate and geological changes). You are perfectly content with being a normal primate and moving deeper into the jungles as they receed.
One day you have a child. That child is "different" from the rest of the children because instead of using all four limbs to walk, he only uses two (he walks upright). Now, normally living in the jungles, this would be a problem because bipedal locamotion is not ideal for life in the trees. But, he finds that standing upright does seem to work really well in the grasslands at the edge of the forest since it allows him to see over the grass in order to spot danger. While you and the rest of your clan move further into the jungle, he stays behind and keeps a few mates with him. The next generation has a few more primates that walk upright, the next generation even more until there is an entire clan of primates that are walking upright. This clan thrives in the grasslands at the edge of the ever shrinking jungle. Over many generations other changes begin to become apparent in this isolated clan (since they stopped mating with the jungle primates long ago). Their brains get bigger, they start to lose some of their body hair, a slight change in their vocal cords allows for speech, they start to use tools. Over hundreds of thousands of generations (millions of years) the simple change in the way the primate walked has allowed for other changes in how the primate thinks and acts and communicates to flourish and to lead us to where we are today.
