That obviously isn't true, as each generation ends up being bigger and stronger than the second, why haven't kids gotten smaller, their sedentary, oh no, instead their bigger, I bet 16 year olds during the 1950's were only 150lbs, now most tend to look around 175lbs. It should apply the same to the teeth, despite apparently being not being needed for what they were originally needed for several years back since food being less tough. What does that say about evolution? What is it that makes animals grow wings, fish grow feat? It is simply a theory made by darwin without any evidence or prove.
Sorry, baby, you're wrong here. Humans today are simply nowhere near as strong and fast as the humans of more than 12000 years ago. Some of the top Olympic athletes approach the speed at which people used to be able to run.

In the above paragraph, you're confusing good diets and development with evolution. In the past few hundred years, in select societies, food quality has greatly increased while parasites have been virtually eliminated. That allowed the human body to develop to its full potential - over the course of 5 generations. It takes 5 generations to reach the full species height. Humans are just now starting to get back to where we were, in terms of height, of our ancestors (prior to 12 000 years ago). But we won't get the strength back.

It's not surprising that you are confused on these issues, given you have a religious bent.

Err...that's not actually what theory has to do in science.

Elements don't evolve because they don't reproduce. Evolution is about change - you need something that can change to have evolution. You need to have a system that includes 1) reproduction, 2) inheritable traits, 3) variation of those traits, and 3) limited resources to have evolution.

If you're missing any of those, you simply do not have a system with evolution in it.

I guess the key to it all is to expect people to get angry, and not get butthurt about it. My philosophy anyway.
I'm only rude to people after they've been rude to me. Orangelion picked a fight - s/he's all upset that s/he can't keep up. That's what happens when your only source of knowledge comes from creationism.

And when animals adapt, the adaptation is supposed to be permanant, its supposed to be improving to more conditions it faces, not simply suited to the condition its already in, that isn't improving, that is simply suiting the enviroment. The peppered moth should have the ability to change colour anyway at anytime to suit the enviroment if it is to adapt to improve its survival of the fittest. Fish have adapted to living on land have they? Is this really survival of the fittest, it isn't survival of the fittest anymore if he is in the see again and drownin. Evolution is flawed.
I'm sorry, but you are very confused about biology.

Adaptation takes place at several different levels. Within individuals, adaptation has two levels: developmental and immediate response. All offspring's bodies develop in response to environmental conditions. So, a child grows up in a high altitude environment, its body will be well suited to apoxia. A child grows up in poverty, it's going to be of smaller stature, have greater health problems and a shorter lifespan.

Immediate adaptive responses happen when you're faced with a challenge in the environment. So you go for a vacation in Peru to see Machu Pichu - suddenly, you're exposed to apoxic conditions. Your resting heart rate skyrockets, your breathing increases, blood pressure increases, mobility decreases. Over the course of three weeks, your red blood cell count will increase and your heart rate and breathing will return to near baseline.

Adaptive responses such as the above are the product of natural selection.

Ok, so then why does DNA evolve but the elements that make DNA don't?
B/c DNA:

1. produces proteins (traits)
2. is inherited
3. subject to mutation and therefore contains variety
4. either gets passed on or not

DNA that gets passed on continues in the environment. DNA that doesn't get passed on goes extinct. The DNA that gets passed on has mutations acting on it constantly. Sometimes this produces new, useful DNA and this outcompetes other, previous versions. The previous versions then go extinct.

Does this make sense?

The basic molecules that make up DNA don't change - it's the configuration (and therefore the products of) these molecules that get passed on.

That's true, but you know it goes both ways on the bad parent subject.
I'm not that bigoted where I'll say that all gays are bad parents, I'm sure a lot of them are decent people.
I DO believe, though, that it gay parents can't give a child a moral compass of mom/dad. They can't. It's either 2 men or 2 women. I believe that the child will grow up a little confused & would possible choose to be gay, also.
Studies of children of gay households reveal that the children are better adjusted, on average, then in other household situations.

"Two therapists who try to turn gay people straight, along with a student who says he was successfully converted to heterosexuality, are suing nearly two dozen California state officials, including Gov. Jerry Brown, saying a new state law infringes on their civil rights."
www.cnn.com/2012/10/04/us/california-gay-ther...
.. you didn't read the entire article:

"This law bans non-scientific 'therapies' that have driven young people to depression and suicide. These practices (conversion therapy) have no basis in science or medicine."

.. sending a child/teen to conversation therapy is akin to sending someone to Joseph Mengele's laboratory. Treatment includes aversion shock therapy, brainwashing and physical punishment. All because their parents can't accept them for who they are or their religion says they're not going to heaven if they're homosexual ..

.. pathetic ..

So, let me see if I can restate your argument. Elements didn't spontaneously generate from nothing. Living things didn't evolve by chance from non-living things (elements). Therefore, neither, living things, nor nonliving things exist. Therefore, God must not exist. Is that right?

Huh? Uhm...the previous poster asked why molecules like Oxygen and Carbon don't evolve. The discussion, at that point, had nothing to do with the existence of God. Evolution doesn't actually prove or disprove God. Evolution is simply a tool to understand biological phenomena.

So I explained to Riverside what kind of system you need to have evolution. Evolution can only happen in systems that have: 1) inheritable traits, 2) variety in those traits, 3) scarce resources.

It's not an argument about God. It's not an argument about where atoms come from. It's just the required factors needed for a system that evolves.

Living organisms fit the requirements; they evolve.

Huh?
Elements evolve within stars. They do not reproduce they are produced from nuclear fusion by a process called nucleosynthesis.
But for heavier elements it requires a large energy input to trade
particles within the atomic nucleus .
Elements heavier than iron are created when stars go supernova.
This is by neutron capture and called s-process and r-process.

Do not confuse the evolution of matter within stars , with the evolution of life on Earth.

So now your are arguing that elements do evolve? And stars spontaneously generate from nothing?And "living" stuff which is made up of the same stuff as stars evolve according to a different pattern than elements that evolve from stars?
