Evolution is stupid

Question: have any of y'all evolutionist observe a KIND of animal ( not species an example of a KIND of animal: dogs, birds, pigs, horses, cows, etc.) turn into a different KIND of animal?

Don't say fossils prove it happened. If you find a bone in the dirt all you know is that that animal died. You can't prove
that it had any kids and especially kids that were a different KIND.

Science: things that can be observed tested, and demonstrated.

There are six deferent definitions of evolution and only only one of the definitions is science. The rest are purely religious speculation.

The definitions:

Micro-evolution - variations within a KIND( this one is science)

Macro-evolution - a KIND of animal turning into a different KIND of animal.

Cosmic evolution - the Big Bang.

Stellar evolution - the formation of stars. (This one is impossible because the more compressed the gas gets by gravity the hotter it gets, and when you heat up a gas it expands and all the gas needed in order for the star to form will dissipate before the star can be hot enough for fusion to occur)

Chemical evolution- the process from hydrogen to all the higher elements in the stars.( this one is also impossible because atoms can't fuse past iron)

Biological evolution( I think that's what it's called)- the theory that all life evolved from a rock.

Basic evolution

Simulations need work

Good app with text, simple graphics and a couple of good simulations. The natural selection simulation is similar to a peppered moth experiment but uses slow brown mice vs fast grey mice. Suggestion--lengthen the time slotted to capture the mice or reduce the number necessary to survive because it was too difficult--I could only get through two generations. That isn't long enough for a student to be able to fully experience the changes over time. Also, it would be great if the simulation results were linked to a graph showing the changes in population over time. This is potentially useful in class but not right now--with the changes I suggested it would be great.

Amazing

Evolution Genius

I consider myself an evolutionary person and this game has evolved my intelligence to a new and higher plane of evolution. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to be here next season.
