Fine, but it is the definition of evolution, not 'transitional evolution'. Whatever that is.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yes but there are forms of evolution that can be seen taking place right before our eyes. Like the super bugs that become immune to antibiotics for existence.

The theory of evolution regarding one species gradually over a period of time evolving into another species is a whole different ballgame, but there is fossil evidence for this.

So if that's now your go to definition do you believe it takes faith to believe in ..."Gradual, cumulative, small changes over a vast gulf of time has led to the diversification of the biosphere we can observe today."

I'm curious.

It's really really not.

No, because it doesn't specifically state anything about one species evolving into another. But I'm at this site to be corrected and receive and education which is why I'll retract the things I say if there is sufficient criticism against it from a mature and educated perspective.

Yes it's not in the sense that it doesn't contradict the transition theory.

RE: I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist
So you think it takes faith to believe that a species can become another species over time?

Actually it kinda does and if you had an actual grasp on evolutionary biology you would see how and why it does.

in the sense that I don't see the animals that are transitioning into another species, and something that takes place over billions of years cannot be tested according to the conventional means of testing by the scientific method, yes.

What is a better way of giving the definition of transitional evolution in one sentence?

I know that there are transitional fossils that support the theory but I was just trying to sum it up in few words.

Every fossil is essentially a transitional fossil, just the same as every picture of you every day of your life, from the moment you are born to old age, is a transitional picture.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
