This is officially my first formal debate. I do not expect you to go easy on me, I am just asking forgiveness in advance for any formal errors on my part.
I accept the challenge and take the stance that evolution by natural selection is currently the best answer to the question of how species on Earth got to where they are today.

Since I'm the only one participating this round, I'll keep it brief. I'm not sure, But based on the title and without an opening argument to analyze, I can only assume he is referring to the theory of evolution by natural selection. Evolution, Defined as change in allele frequencies over time, Is a fact. It is observable simply by analyzing genetic code down a family line from one generation to the next in any species of plant or animal. Simple logic with no science involved leads one to understand that many small changes over time will eventually lead to larger differences. This is the basic foundation behind the theory, Which also has more scientific evidence attached to it than I'm willing to research for a simple debate.
That said, I could also have gone the route of saying that the theory itself is real regardless of it's validity, And the mere existence of books and classes supports this.

The theory of evolution is the best explainatuon science has to explain the diversity of life. The process of evolution is an observable fact.
