And to believe in this day and age that a book written 6000 years ago with a history of a very small area is the only science book most of them will ever read or have read to them.

Yet all over you see the science behind how we really came to be and how we evolved from the first creature that crawled out of the water. And how everything came to be in the broader sciences.

Ain't Science Grand?!?

"first creature that crawled out of the water" Almost choke on my food. Tooo funny.
Not even evolutionary theory supports THAT.

Yes, yes it does.  Life started in the oceans.  Look it up.

It is provable that man is still evolving. The Sherpas in Nepal have the ability to live in areas that have little more than half the oxygen found at sea level. It had long been thought that their blood was packed with hemoglobin. That would allow for the carrying of more oxygen, but it would also increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke. Their bodies, instead, evolved to have more capillaries to carry this extra oxygen.

Do evolutionist just make stuff up. They produce fewer red blood cells which allows more oxygen to flow. Not a major evolutionary feat.

"They produce fewer red blood cells which allows more oxygen to flow. Not a major evolutionary feat."

You have no idea how blood works, do you? Oxygen is carried by the Iron-containing hemoglobin molecules that is contained within red blood cells. Fewer red blood cells = less oxygen carried per blood volume. There's a reason why athletes would sometimes cheat by getting a blood transfusion before an event to pack extra red blood cells into their blood.

And another thing... how do you think something like "producing fewer blood cells" would occur?

Breeding populations of a warbler, Blackcap, from southern Germany, once wintered south of the Sahara (as other Blackcap populations do), but about 40 years ago, an increasing proportion migrated northwest instead to winter in Cornwall in England, where moderating climatic conditions allowed year-round insect populations to survive. Over the next 25 years, the wing-length of this population decreased, because long wings ((better for long-distance migration 'hops') were selected against in the population's evolution.

The morphology on that spinal colomn of the shrew was amazing! (And I think this goes with out saying)...but I've never seen anyting that complex in the spinal region of a mamal. Snakes are pretty complex in regards to the intricacies of their colomn form...but this little shrew blows everything completely out of the water!

Of which shrew do you speak? I didn't see a shrew mentioned or a photograph thereof in the above story so I'm just a little confused.

Thank science that the girl with the glasses and all the fixtures in her face didn't start autoplaying on this page, like the header at the top indicated it would.

Also, yeah, evolution is awesome.

"But, but, but", sputters the creationist, "there is evidence of microevolution (which we define, contrary to biology, as changes in a species that do not change the species) but absolutely no evidence of macroevolution (which we define, contrary to biology, as a dog turning in to a porcupine via one single transitional species)".

Species' evolving happens fastest in fast-growing unicellular organisms. Antibiotic resistance is a familar example. Another is the ability to biodegrade toxic new man-made chemicals.

Plus... that germ theory's only a theory after all.

Ah, but that would need microscopes to see, and I guess the godbotherers don't believe in microscopes.... they'd just say that the elitist scientemists were lying to them about non-existent small things.

I've met some that told me that if they couldn't see something with their naked eyes, it didn't exist. Richard Dawkins met some of those on a BBC documentary a year or two back, I just remembered...

Great article! I'm a volunteer at The Field Museum and LOVE being a part of that place. So many amazing things to see. Evolving Planet is my favorite exhibit!
