Well, I did learn a few things from your little examples - but for the most part, I know what evidence there is and isn't for evolution. I also know that I.D. is, basically, a philosophical theory.
I just like arguing. lol.
Sorry got to ask, didn't you just think that "microevolution" and "macroevolution" were two different things? You were aware that "microevolution" and reproductive isolation over time causes "macroevolution". You understand genetics? Systematics, cladistics, phylogenetics, Bioinformatics, Biomathematics, Coalescent theory, Computational phylogenetics, Game Theory, Molecular phylogeny, Distance matrices, Jukes-Cantor model matrix, Cell Theory, Gene theory, Epigenetics, Physiology , Anatomy, Ecophysiology, Behavioral ecology, Population ecology, Systems ecology, Evolutionary psychology, Evolutionary computation, Ecological selection, evolutionary developmental biology, Auxology, Bioenergetics, Genetic drift, Dysgenics, Microbiology, Microbial genetics, Immunology, Evolutionary microbiology, Zoology, Comparative anatomy, Phylogeography, Biogeography, Population genetics, Dual inheritance theory, Ecological genetics, Muller's ratchet, Neutral theory of molecular evolution, Quantitative genetics, Genetic erosion, Genetic hitchhiking, Koinophilia, Negative selection, Ring Speciation, Genetic algorithms, punctuated equilibrium, Hybrid vigor, adaptive evolution, Selective sweep, Background selection, Sexual selection, Geometric progression, Genetical Theory of Natural Selection, evolutionarily stable strategies, antagonistic co-evolution, Phylogenetic comparative methodology, functional morphology and ethology?
Because all of these ideas and disciplins in biology not only provide evidences for evolution (this is but a fraction), but are all linked by the common denominator of evolution. Modern evolutionary theory is truly the unifying theory of biology.
In fact, I would say that Evolutionary theory and Quantum mechanics are the most time "proven" theories in science, as far how correct they are about our world.
