    OK, so where are the ones that relate to my great, great, great, great, great grandpa lizard?

    Errr, both you and your great great grandparents are related to your great great great great grandpa mammal ancestor. If you would like to see them, dig up your great great grandparents. It's quite simple really.

    I substituted lizard with mammal to avoid your obtuseness.

    It sounds like you want to have a lizard, a human and in between...an APELIZARD! Is that basically what you're asking?

    Wrong.

    The cabbage whit butterfly has almost been replaced by the cabbage green butterfly during the later 20th century. The new mutated version of the butterfly has some advantage over the white version.

    There are now 2 types of willow warbler which do not interbreed and have overlapping territories. The differences between the 2 are behavioral. These differences in behavior have and will continue to produce different selection pressures on the 2 populations.

    How many breeds of dog are there? We certainly have very full records of such human induced evolution.

    You are wrong and know it.

    There is a complete absence of traditional fossils that link entirely different species as Evolution suggests they became. That's the point. There are limits to viability of the farthest reaches of evolutionary theory.

    Again, not one example of one animal becoming another. I'm not debating that species evolve according to their conditions, or that the strongest survive. People are much taller now just a few hundred years ago, but that doesn't make us the descendants of a fish that crawled out of the ocean.

    Show me fossilized examples of one animal evolving into something completely different.

    And what do you base that statement on?

    If two groups of the same species are geographically separated into two groups, and the second group evolves to the point that it can no longer produce fertile offspring if it mates with the first group, then that constitutes speciation. So if the cabbage whit butterfly changes into a cabbage green butterfly and the latter can no longer produce fertile offspring with the former, bam, different species.

    There's no evidence that just because the universe is expanding that it started at a point. It's a sound theory but hardly factual.

    What does God have to do with this?

    There are no physical links to prove so. There's nothing that explains the origin of man. And there's certainly nothing that explains the origin of matter.

    All we know is that a lot of species have walked this earth over time. Some are still here, while others are extinct. Some of have changed and adapted over the long process of natural selection and survival of the fittest.

    But how they all got here in the first place is a complete mystery.
