    So who doesn't believe in evolution? Not abiogenesis, but evolution.

    I find it really hard to grasp that some people don't believe in evolution, which is proven, and I think many of those who question "evolution" are actually questioning abiogenesis:

    I am grounded in the belief that I was created in the image of God, by God, and nobody else created me except for him. However, I am pretty sure my wife evolved from monkeys.

    I think the jury is still out on that one for me....We've had written history for thousands of years and no noted evolution of people. They used to think we've gotten taller, but then they found out that idea came from the left over armor, which it turns out were usually the "samples" which is why they survived...

    I know girls are "maturing" faster physically, but I'm not sure that counts as evolution since I think it's related to hormones that are put in our food, making it more of a mutation than evolution.

    I do not understand how we could have all started out black and then some of us became white, and some of us got slanted eyes....how did that evolve and why? Seems to me the white people are the ones who should have the slanted eyes, as the sun bugs us more....

    Maybe we didn't "evolve", maybe we "mutated"?

    ever been in old houses and bumped your head on the doorways?
    People have gotten taller.

    And we are evolving in a negative direction lately it seems.
    The survival of the fittest has has been removed from the equation and now those with bad genetics are passing them on at an increasing rate due to medical improvements.

    Just look at the Beck movement as an example ;)

    Yes, I've been in old houses, and the doorways are actually larger, in many cases. In some cases mostly in basements, they are smaller, but that's due to other factors besides people's height.

    peoples height is not evolution it is just improved nutrition, medical care ..go to Europe and indeed doorways in buildings built hundreds of years ago are shorter most of the suits of armor are just over 5 ft but its hardly proof of evolution...btw believing is not knowing

    Well, that's true..

    I've not been in old buildings in Europe, as I've not been to Europe. And yes, height is directly linked to nutrition, so again, not evolution. Evolution is a theory, I guess I need proof.....I'm not saying I don't believe in evolution, just saying I don't know...

    Evolution has only been proven to exist INSIDE a species. There is no evidence that humans or animals have evolved from a totally different species.
