given the transitional evidence, which ironically is usually what is attacked by antievolutionists, evolution more likely than not is true.

links for things on traisitional fossils

look for the chromosomal stuff, and chapters six and five in the PBS link below, read or watch the video.

I'm sorry but good evidence for change over time, especially evidence easily explained via natural selection is good evidence for evolution.

The idea that you can take small steps but cannot take a large series of small steps is an anathema to rational thought. You can walk ten feet going right foot left foot... but never ten miles!

Evolution certainly happened and good evidence for macroevolution is support for the theory at hand. What is typically referred to as macroevolution is really just evolution. The use of two different words is to suggest that there is a different mechanism involved... but it's the same mechanism and a lot more time.

Dairygirl, you need to start fewer debates if you're going to keep missing rounds.

this doesn't really seem like a substantial debate, but really one of those silly semantical debates half the people here do.

i am not looking to debate someone who wants to say "microevolution" is what should be used to describe it, when "macroevolution" is just a way of saying essentially the same thing in another way. ie, money ancester to human is macroevolution but it occured with mircro. etc etc.

i think it's pretty clear that i'm looking for creationsists etc. in fact, the the only real reason i said "macroevolution" instead of evolution, is because i was trying ot avoid people saying "oh, i believe in micro evolution for things like bird colorings etc, but not large evolution like humans from monkey ancesters", but apparently there's someone to point out semantical thigns everyday.
semantical debates are not wise; they are silly. they waste time talking about what is is, instead of talking about the substance of the debate.

to top it off, your first post is making pointless distinctions, and the your second post is contradicting the first. now, apparently, you're arguing for macro evolution? (unless you're just trying to show me how to debate... but if that's teh case, i still stand by my semantical point)
