    Survival of the fittest defeats generational evolution. Evolution would necessarily have to be a very fast process in order for intermediate species to survive.
    Could you rephrase your post please? This just reads like gibberish to me.

    @ Friday -- I've been trying to think of an example of evolution that we've seen -- and that would have to be bacteria. Because we've used so many antibiotics, many strains of bacteria have evolved into resistant strains. And that's just in our lifetime, which is a split second on the evolutionary timeline.

    Charming. How about you expand on one of your statements e.g. "Survival of the fittest defeats generational evolution." Shouldn't that be "Survival of the fittest drives generational evolution."

    Maggie, but it's still bacteria. I'm not arguing against micro-evolution. I believe in micro-evolution.

    lots of micro evolutions make macro evolution.

    Just like lots of micro aging turns a baby into an old man.

    Ok, explain how survival of the fittest would drive generational evolution. How does a species that is in the evolutionary process survive? Or is evolution a superfast process where one species up and gives birth to another? Which one is it?
