Con

Hey creationtruth thanks for the opportunity to debate.
I feel like I am well equipped for this challenge and will try my best.
In university and school when learning Biology, we quickly get acquainted with the theory of Evolution. Although there is a foundation of knowledge and a paradigm to understand before learning it.

:Age of the universe
:Age of planet earth
:Age of life

These are pre-requisite to Darwinian evolution.
I will need to clarify if we are referring to micro-evolution, where functions such as adaptation, mutation, genetic drift, natural selection and migration are in play. Or macro-evolution, with one form to another using micro-evolution.
