Whenever there is a change and that change is adapted and used for survival, that is evolution.abelcainsbrother wrote:Evolution is supposed to be change over time however the evidence does not back this up from my research on it.Is variation in reproduction evolution? Reproduction?Is life adapting life evolving?Because when I look at the evidence I expect to see evidence life evolves and yet in every case it is just reproduction or adaptation.Now I do not deny that life reproduces or that life can adapt as we can actually see and observe this but I want to see evidence life evolves.PaulSacramento wrote:Can you tell me, in your own words, what is evolution?
In a nutshell:
Using the example of cosmic radiation ( and there is a reason I use it as an example)-
Radiation causes a mutation in the gene that makes the fur on Fox group (A) become thicker.
That mutation allows the members in that group to migrate to colder climates (looking for food or whatnot) from group (B).
Over generations group (A) breeds and that mutation is passed on via natural selection because it is a beneficial one.
Many centuries go by, millenniums even, and as Group (A) and (B) continue to go through various changes and adaptations, they get to a point that group (A) can no longer breed successfully with (B).
They are no a new/different species.
Evolution of group (A) from group (B) has occurred.
