    One does not "believe" in evolution, you either accept it as fact, or you are ignorant to science.

    What do you think the change produced in evolution is driven by?

    1. Random mutations.
    2. Natural selection.

    That's it. Adaption is passive, not active. The environment determines the change, not the organism. Using any other explanation for 1. (above) is NOT a belief in evolution.

    Definition of evolution:

    ev·o·lu·tion
    /ˌevəˈlo͞oSHən/
    noun
    noun: evolution; plural noun: evolutions1. the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
    synonyms: Darwinism, natural selection More"his interest in evolution"

    2. the gradual development of something, esp. from a simple to a more complex form.
    "the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution"
    synonyms: development, advancement, growth, rise, progress, expansion, unfolding; More
    Where in there does it say ONLY randomness? Oh yeah, it doesn't.

    You lose. Now, show me your proof, sinec I provided proof of mine, otherwise you're dismissed.

    The genetic mutations at the gene level are random. The likelihood that those genetic mutations are preserved in future generations is related to whether they increase the ability of a species to compete in its environment or not. That is the most basic explanation, but some mutations / traits are simply vestigial, and may have served a purpose in a previous species but serve no purpose today. For example, you get goose bumps when you are cold or scared because at one time we were covered with hair, and that reaction would have stood our body hair on end just like you see other animals do when they are cold or afraid.

    The way evolution works would be like if you had a prop plane and you had to covert that to a jet by simply adding equipment to the prop plane rather than scraping and replacing parts. You could leave some parts on as unused, but you could not ever scrap and replace anything. Thus we get goose bumps even though we no longer have fir, a woman's uterus is designed for species walking on all fours, and so on.

    There is no proof of it, nowhere has it been observed.

    Again, that is an assumption. Not fact. They APPEAR random maybe to you and others. That doesn't mean there isn't ANY design in them.

    The change can be random, yet the success/failure of that change not be random. The random flora and fauna differ significantly among different habitats.

    Hold crap, you really don't understand evolution. How embarrassing.
