My avatar is actually a picture from a family photo album in my basement. How's that for proof all you non-believers!!! ;-7

Seriously though, there are lots of holes in evolution still, with new twists popping up all the time. The famous "Lucy" that was thought to be the missing link for so long was proven otherwise a few years back. Evolution is definitely still 'evolving'. Who knows where it will end, but it is pure science plain and simple, no faith necessary.

I'm also glad that no people from "the world is 6000 years old and carbon dating is a crock o' sheet" religions have chimed in. I tried having a philosophical/scientific conversation with them once and they are incredibly unreasonable people.

Well, technically, we haven't lived long enough to actually clock the half-life of a Carbon atom.

:-D

BTW, I'm of the "believe in the Bible and think that science will only back it up" group.

Funny thing is, he gets the most flak in reviews from the more-religious rather than the less-religious.
