    Here is my list. There is more, I just tried to stick with the easy to understand ones.

    * Fossils - the order can be determined by stratification alone (no radiological dating) it is unarguable and life started simple and got more complex. Here is a simple chart to show what I mean: http://pubs.usgs.gov/gip/fossils/success...
    * Circular species. Meaning that it geographically evolved in two geographic directions with interbreeding possible between all steps but not the two ends. The two ends are actually separate species. Example: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/librar...
    * Mitochondrial DNA regressive studies. - This comes only from your mother and the only changes to it are through mutations. These mutations occur at a known rate, and converge world wide 150,000 years ago give or take. If Eve (6000 years ago) was the only female, it would be almost identical world wide. It is not. The flood gives a second bottleneck that matches the facts even less well.
    * Geographic distribution of related species. Meaning related species are usually near each other.
    * Wisdom Teeth - there isn't room on your jaw for them anymore.
    * Your little toe - totally useless. Nice intelligent design here.
    * Your appendix - totally useless now but it does digest cellulose in other species.
    * Your inner eyelids - They don't even work now, but they do for lots of other animals like house cats. Bet you didn't even know you had 'em.
    * Vestigial DNA - meaning chromosomes that we have but don't use, but that are used in other species. We have several that other primates use but are totally useless to us.
    * The fact that we share so much DNA among species
    * There are no wild milk cows. They evolved through artificial selection and are totally man made.
    * Different breeds of dogs, cats, livestock.
    * Viruses and bacteria evolve quickly and you can actually see it. This is why you need a new flu shot every year.
    * Your tail bone. It is even not that uncommon to be born with a tail.
    * Goosebumps - this would be useful if we had fur because it fluffs it and makes more insulation. For us it is worthless.
    * The hair standing up on your neck when you are frightened. Animals use this to make themselves look bigger. Doesn't work when you walk upright and don't have fur.
    * The fact that humans have gotten measurably and heritability taller since the 1600s
    * The fact that humans jaw have gotten measurably and heritability smaller since the 1600s
    * The fact that humans little toes have gotten measurably and heritability smaller since the 1600s
    * Human lower back problems. Your back is intelligently designed to have support from your shoulders.
    * Transitional fossils - here are several lists: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tra...

    The Study of Genetics actually "proves" evolution is real...

    Inside every cell of your body is a very complex molecule called DNA, and this complex molecule is the "secret of life..."

    When a man and a woman mate and have offspring, their genes were mixed into a new combination, and this "pairing of genes" was due to the "random meeting" of the two parents. In other words, nobody is born knowing who they are going to mix their genes with, and so "Natural Selection" (Evolution) is proved through the study of "Genetics" and "Reproduction..."

    There's more to it than that, but I can't teach you an entire semester of Upper Division Genetics in this answer, but suffice it to say that Evolution is no longer taught as a theory, it is now taught in every University in the world as "fact..."

    this is pretty good evidence. a species of slug found in new england actually adopted DNA from the algea that it eats and produces its own chlorophyll. as long as you shine a light on them for 12 hours a day they dont have to eat... only species of multicellular(nonplant) species in the world that can do this, and is obvious and has been shown that it actually changed its DNA and adopted the DNA from its food... there is much more but this is the most interesting one that ive found and is currently happening.

    Transitive fossils, Human Edrogenous retroviruses, Human Chromosome #2, Birds, Atavism, Neanderthal Genome, Biochemistry, The phylogenetic Tree, species diversity, animals symbiosis, Archeoptryx (the bird-lizard), vestigials organs, and oganelles, and parasites.

    You want a direct example. Influenza.

    the influenza bug has adapted to our medication, new virulent

    All answers by Evolutionists so far lack clarity! They fail to provide concrete examples.

    What are fossils? Only relics of what had been! The cause of their extinction could be anybody's guess! Why to presume that they could have 'evolved' into another species and hence became redundant?!?

    To avoid answering, they always say that it takes 'millions' years for a new specie to evolve! Fine! By that logic, shouldn't we see new species every now and then...that started changing millions years from now?!? Have we?

    Whatever changes we see are all manmade...scientists taking apart the constituents and putting them together in different combinations and permutations. Is that really Evolution? Its just playing around with material already available...

    We have all read Science books in schools...all they prove is presence of Man's curious mind...to think things through...experiment...and of interference.

    True, Life Sciences have made great progress in unravelling our genetic make-up and all that...it has also caused great harms by giving birth to many hitherto unknown disorders/disease too...

    Evolution just means that organisms change to survive the environment they're in. If the environmental change is very sudden, the organism will die.
    Most evidence lies in how much the DNA of different species has in common rather than their differences, making it possible to trace how long ago we had a common ancestor.

    If you want some specific examples, human chromosome 2 and the Gulo gene are pretty strong evidence.

    Museums, universities, libraries, digs and many other places full of evidence and facts.

    But for BAD christians is must surely be that the christian churches say that creationists and ID believers are deeply flawed thinkers!!

    The Pope, Catholic Church, Church of England and mainstream churches all accept the big bang and evolution!!

    Lord Carey the former Archbishop of Canterbury put it rather well – “Creationism is the fruit of a fundamentalist approach to scripture, ignoring scholarship and critical learning, and confusing different understandings of truth”!!

    http://www.harunyahya.com/nas09.php


    The fact that Australopithecus cannot be considered an ancestor of man is also accepted by evolutionist sources. The well-known French magazine Science et Vie made this its cover story of its May 1999 issue. The story dealt with Lucy, the best-known fossil specimen of Australopithecus afarensis, under the title "Adieu Lucy," and wrote of the need to remove Australopithecus from the human family tree. The article, based on the discovery of a new Australopithecus, code number St W573, stated:

    A new theory states that the genus Australopithecus is not the root of the human race… The results arrived at by the only woman authorized to examine St W573 are different from the normal theories regarding mankind's ancestors: this destroys the hominid family tree. Large primates, considered the ancestors of man, have been removed from the equation of this family tree… Australopithecus and Homo (human) species do not appear on the same branch. Man's direct ancestors are still waiting to be discovered.11

    Scientific findings have proven the evolutionist assumptions regarding Lucy, the best-known example of the genus Australopithecus, to be unfounded. In its February 1999 issue, the well-known French scientific magazine Science et Vie accepted this in an article entitled "Adieu Lucy," and confirmed that Australopithecus cannot be considered an ancestor of man.

    They don't have any evidence of Humans from Apes,its if you read the History that darwin only predicted that human from Monkeys and next day in News paper the catoon of darwin image with half monkey is Published.well some of Scientists have a proof of fossils and theories with Ardipithecus.
    any way you forget to Notice one thing the humans are the only organisms to move with Two legs think about the Past in forests,four legs movement predators are very fast and how do the humans survive and reach the top of earth Eccosystem..think about this
