What do you believe about "evolution"?

Report as

Even creationists believe in evolution if you define it as change over time. There is broad agreement that species have variety, and that they appear to develop these varieties by natural selection and variable survival (mistakenly called survival of the fittest).
The fossil record makes painfully clear that there are species that existed at one time that don't exist now. But the mechanism that causes one species to "evolve" into another has yet to be demonstrated sufficiently to explain the Cambrian Explosion, and Darwin himself recognized the problem. So, lets say that the scientific mechanism does not appear to be sufficient to explain the facts as we know them, so we must allow for speculation. Involving a deity in the process is a possibility, but should be only a competing theory because its difficult to prove the supernatural by the natural. However, as SETI says, DNA is information, and information is signs of intelligence.

I believe that things can adapt to their living conditions but the whole "we all evolved from a single cell" crap is a bunch of lies

No, it's is verifiable truth, whether you believe it or not.

Yes I see how it's proven. But I would like to know how they want to explain life coming out of nothing. How do they explain just a bunch of raw materials just magically turning into a cell? They don't because they have no proof because its not true

That's not evolution, that's the origin of life. There's a distinction. Evolution has the evidence. The origin doesn't.

Nothing. There's nothing to "believe" regarding evolution. It has evidence. It's a fact. You either accept or deny the fact. There's no such thing as "believing" in a fact. I don't "believe" gravity exists -- I accept the fact that gravity exists. You only reserve belief for claims without evidence.

Evolution brings out diversity in biological organisation, which includes molecules such as proteins and DNA. It is said to have taken place at least 3.8 billion years ago and it was first formulated by Charles Darwin.

Of course you didn't. No human did. You obviously don't understand evolution.
