evidence of evolution here
I'm sure it has been written and talked about endless times, but I just arrived at it. I'm a little slow that way Smile
I read about people breaking away from these religious families and see it clearly, this is evidence of evolution. It is a bit refreshing to think of it this way.

How is it evidence of evolution? Consider

people are becoming more intelligent and using logic instead of some fairy tales in a book?

Reading posts about people who are in all sorts of turmoil and describing everybody in their family as totally religious. What made them different, and could a small piece of it be genetic? I know most of it can be attributed to things they encountered in childhood, but what if they were wired differently too?

You've personally evolved with respect to your views on reality. But this is using evolution in a very loose sense to only mean "change over time" and not using the term as it would be defined in the theory of evolution.

That's probably more wishful thinking than actual "evolution". Wink

The thing is, evolution can't actually be observed while it's happening. There isn't what can be called a specific outcome or result... there's no "goal".

Encouraging thought, though. Shy

Really? I thought that antibiotic resistant bacteria are evolving rather quickly.

But you're not observing individuals evolving in the case of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is what your OP seems to suggest happens.

Individuals don't evolve, populations do.
