    Micro evolution is an observed phenomenon, but that's it. When changes occur within a species of animal like the dog or those lizards, that is micro evolution. Animals adapting and changing as their environment changes. But that is the only "evolution" that is and will ever occur. I think it was preprogrammed into every species animal or human, to be able to change certain functions of their bodies to adapt to a specific environment. This world is always changing, if we couldn't adapt we probably wouldn't be here right now.

    In Hebrew your question would make about as much sense as "can I keep Monday on Tuesday" Shabbat means Saturday. Sunday is "Yom Rishon" This question only exists in English due to some 17th and 18th century Protestant preachers confusing what were always very clear issues. Before that time -- all Christian denominations knew that "the Sabbath" was on Saturday but that Christianity chose to reject keeping the Sabbath (through the belief that "Jesus fulfilled the Old covenant") -- they celebrated Sunday because that was the day Jesus is said to have resurected. But the later protestants in many cases wanted to "have their cake and eat it too"

    If you lived for 100.000 years or more you could observe the evolution of certain species but it doesn't happen over night so if you want to observe it go to school and learn about the history of evolution etc.

    One way of looking at this is that evolution is observable with the passing of each generation, but this change is indistinguishable with our perception of time.

    Evolution is a constant process - you are always observing it, you just don't know the difference.

    Go to any natural history museum, and observe the fossil record. It's clear evidence for the phenomon of evolution.

    Dog breeding. Evolution is descent with modification. It is how the Boston Terrier went from non-existent to AKC recognized breed in less than 30 years.

    If you can't figure that out then you're never going to be very useful there anyway (in the study of evolution).

    So you might as well just find another hobby

    when one creature dies, when one creature mates. this is natural selection with organisms passing on traits, desirable or not.

    when they die, that is undesirable traits being weeded out.

    when a creature mates, that is a creature being successful enough in nature to pass on genes...

    you can also see selection in the form of the modern banana to the natural banana. dogs have changed so much in shape that if you seperate some extreme breeds for a couple thousand years, they will no longer be able to breed.

    bacteria have been known to gain mutations.

    try getting the cold, get a vaccine, so for one year you cant get the cold, then the next you will get the cold...

    You should never try to go to a forest to see it because you will not see the forest because of the trees. Evolution is all around you.
