Evolution believers,What is there besides popular theories to back the idea of evolution?

Update:

What discoveries Donut?If there are that many name one.waiting...

Update 2:

It is always talk no substance,where is the reality of evolution,please enlighten me.Blanket statements just annoy.Evolution is real har har har,that makes it true,Give me a break.

Update 3:

@ Achristo; Dinosaurs did not evolve,they were just here and destroyed,the Tarpon,a fish,has been around since prehistoric times and has not changed,what would dinosaurs evolved into?Nothing because they wouldn't evolve they would stay the same.

Update 4:

@ Donut;Phones,electronics,televisions,I can see touch,and feel,you are getting thumbs up from Atheist, one liners who also have no true answer,just telling me it is real isn't enough,still waiting,Donut.One example please I'm begging!!I gave you one of many for my side w/ the Tarpon example.

Update 5:

@ Giggity;Then why are you here.go that away----->>>>>>

Update 6:

@ Joe;Still hyperbole,what fossil records dont use Darwin's,because they are still argued over by paleo scientist and Darwinians themselves,what chemical and anatomical similarities,what recorded genetics,cite an example,I don't need a paragraph just one example please.

Update 7:

I don't really believe in evolution,but I could probably argue for it alot better than you guys.No help.You have all this "evidence" but can not cite one example of it.Just one please.

Update 8:

@ Avocado; Faulty wiring,minor inconsistencies,equilibrium,first off it is called punctuated equilibrium,and it was used to replace Darwin's debunked theory of evolution,punctuated equilibrium,made evolution in fossils invisible.Faulty wiring,that sounds like something you made up.lol Minor inconsistencies?O.k If Darwin's theory is correct why cant we see the intermediate forms of species,and the connecting links,Darwin did not have an answer to that,nor the archeological evidence to back it up.Yeh real minor it debunked his whole theory. Although there is ample evidence for many fossils,and species,records provide almost no evidence,for the intermediate connecting links,couldn't just take my Tarpon example could ya.lol You are trying to force the truth which is what evolutionist have to do,and I know avatars.Vaccines,cultures,are made in petri dishes,and test tubes,mold,penicillin,by chemist what is your point Epic fail sir.

Update 9:

I already knew that noone could give a good example,because they would be in line for the Nobel, if they could.People should not assume things as we all know what that does,eh Mr.Avocado? Thanx for playin though,I appreciate the answers whether they agree w/ me or not.

Update 10:

@Jerrymc;Yes thank the lord we have evolved mentally,and physically,what I'm saying is we did not come from some lower form of life.And it goes against my beliefs.

Update 11:

@jJerry,sorry Jer no proof of that, after what I just wrote you are still going to say evolution is fact?I would trust the experts,we didnt come from some fish or walking fish,or whatever thats absurd.

Update 12:

Joe ecoli,really,did they all get attacked w/ salmonella and morph int other species,come on brother,the 31,500th generation,LMAO,Your long diatribe answers nothing.As you see Avocado took her long retort and ran w/ her tale between her legs,I would have been embarrassed also.lol.

    "It is always talk no substance"

    Your ignorance on the subject, and your enlightenment, is not my problem.

    The evidence for evolution has primarily come from four sources:

    1. the fossil record of change in earlier species

    2. the chemical and anatomical similarities of related life forms

    3. the geographic distribution of related species

    4. the recorded genetic changes in living organisms over many generations

    Evolutionary theory is the only explanation that can fully account for observations in the fields of biology, paleontology, anthropology, embryology and others

    I know you won't look at the evidence. I know you are incapable of accepting any idea that does not match your fairy tale beliefs, but now I can feel good that I tried to educate you. If you choose not to follow the links or read the information available, that is on you. I made sure you had the opportunity.

    EDIT: You want an example of evolution? Easy. E. coli evolved in a lab.

    http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn14094-bacter...

    Here is a excerpt:

    A major evolutionary innovation has unfurled right in front of researchers' eyes. It's the first time evolution has been caught in the act of making such a rare and complex new trait.

    And because the species in question is a bacterium, scientists have been able to replay history to show how this evolutionary novelty grew from the accumulation of unpredictable, chance events.

    ...

    But sometime around the 31,500th generation, something dramatic happened in just one of the populations - the bacteria suddenly acquired the ability to metabolise citrate, a second nutrient in their culture medium that E. coli normally cannot use.

    Indeed, the inability to use citrate is one of the traits by which bacteriologists distinguish E. coli from other species. The citrate-using mutants increased in population size and diversity.

    "It's the most profound change we have seen during the experiment. This was clearly something quite different for them, and it's outside what was normally considered the bounds of E. coli as a species, which makes it especially interesting," says Lenski.

    There are artifacts. We find paintings of animals in caves, suggesting that ancient humans worshiped animals. We found hieroglyphs in Egypt which suggests people worshiped celestial objects like the moon, sun, and planets. We find statues and figurines in the Middle East resembling humans which suggest those people worshiped anthropomorphic gods such as Baal, Asherah, and Ishtar. We find ancient texts which suggest that there is only one true god.

    Artifacts don’t lie. They clearly illustrate that human superstition has evolved over the millennia. Humans went from a polytheism that worshiped animal gods, to gods in celestial objects, to gods with human traits, to a single god with human traits. Evolution is true. It is backed up with undeniable artifacts.

    Edit: But we did come from lower life forms, and those lower life forms came from the evolution of the universe. Evolution is a fact. The theory of evolution attempts to explain that fact.

    Edit: It is not absurd, it is truth. The fact is we can trace our evolution from each and every one of our cell’s DNA. What is absurd is your refusal to accept fact.

    Knowledge regarding evolution has already greatly improved our quality of life. It has produced tens of thousands of discoveries in genetics, epidemiology, archeology, agriculture, embryology, bacteriology… the list goes on.

    Denying evolution now would be like denying the possibility of electronics after using a telephone, television and computer.

    Clearly you don't know what science is.

    A scientific theory is based on facts.

    Genetic research has proved Evolution is true.

    The fossil record provides further evidence.

    You do not know what a theory is

    And it is extremely popular with the scientific community. Do you know who the scientific community is?
