Seven Million Years of Human Evolution

Scientists use fossils to reconstruct the evolutionary history of hominins—the group that includes modern humans, our immediate ancestors, and other extinct relatives. Today, our closest living relatives are chimpanzees, but extinct hominins are even closer. Where and when did they live? What can we learn about their lives? Why did they go extinct? Scientists look to fossils for clues.

Lol. Still such a laughable subject. When actual proof is there, which there will never be, then evolutionist might have a foot to stand on.
Again all these same old words are used such as " maybe, it could have, we think, someday, we believe, possibly, under the right conditions, etc, are still included by evolutionist in their explanations or theories and show us these cute little videos of how they believe it happened...evolution is one of the silliest jokes man has ever fallen for.
Evolutionist refuse to humble themselves and accept that there is a God who in fact "knows a we bit more about everything" but instead are spiritually dumb enough to believe in all of this evolution stuff "just happening"!!!

#6. I see you get your simplistic world view from the bible, a static document composed of writings originating a few thousand years ago, from a variety of sources, men struggling to find meaning and explain their existence on this planet using only the modest amount of knowledge and evidence available to them at the time.

Things have moved on a bit since then.

Understandably, there are people such as yourself, who still cling to and find solace in the words of our ancestors, finding 'truth' via religious dogma, scripture and authority. However, I prefer to place my trust in the scientific method, building knowledge by creating hypotheses, deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and then carrying out experiments or empirical observations based on those predictions. Science has not revealed all the answers yet; far from it. It is a struggle that continues.

Slavish adherence to ancient superstitious writings seems to work for you. It does not work for me.

I totally believe in science as does the Bible. The biggy here is "true science" and one that can be proved. Evolution to this very day is a theory and always will be not matter how you or others that convince yourselves that evolution is a fact. The real fact here is the more you dig the more the evidence is not there.
You may have come from some slime filled pond in some made up gooey past, but I know I didn't.

#8 To lay people, the word 'theory' can mean an opinion or conjecture; you'll often hear people say: "oh, it's just a theory", which is basically the linguistical chicanery that believers use to dismiss evolution. Scientists however use the word in a much stronger sense, to mean a "well substantiated explanation". Gravitational theory is an example of a well substatiated explanation, but I invite you to put it to the test by stepping off a very tall building without a parachute. Let me know how that turns out. :)

I may indeed have my origin in some slime filled pond in the dim and distant past. Science is showing that is increasingly likely. You believe you didn't. There is no scientific reason for you to believe that, except that it fits in nicely with your made-up creator-god narrative and it makes you happy.

Evolution is not a theory, we've already been able to witness it occurring at the microevolutionary level.

Considering it's only been an actual theory for 150 ish years, we've really not seen anything at the macro level *yet* simply because of time constraints.

Sure not much can happen in just 150 years. But how about 150,000 or 1,500,00 or ten times that as you say has to happen? The reason it is a theory and will always be just a theory is because there is no physical proof any where on the planet that shows any kind of consistent fossil record of one life form changing into another as drastic as evolution says it can. Not one.
Evolutionist find a piece of a toe bone and all of a sudden "here is proof" that we came from some ape. Really, that's all you need to believe this joke?
All the changes that we see are simple changes of adaptation as needed because of external changes in climate or other factors that may make over time a certain species change color or have it's neck eventually grow longer. But those changes never make a species turn into another totally different one. That is a fact.
And the fact that life here on this planet can adapt and not just die off if the wind changes direction is all the proof that any normal human should grasp in the wisdom of a creator.
