At risk of confusing the children further, I'll observe that some have argued that evolution is so well accepted and lacking competing scientific concepts that it is effectively a "fact." That is subjective and outside the concept of science as facts in biology are data.

Neither "most ikely true" nor "proof" are relevant scientific terms. Science does not deal with most likely true. Where do you get that silliness? Certainly not from any scientific expertise on your part. Again - the term is scienitfic theory - do look it up and if you can unders...

Again child, please attempt to understand science - esp. the concept of scientifc theory. There is no proof for evolution - it is a scientifc theory. Your shallow unreferenced examples (examples are not proofs in any case) are at best sophomoric. Why are you so dense? Is it congenital? And calm down...

I see your reading (or honesty) is poor. I made no observation of your drivel re. existence of God. Speaking of honesty - it would serve that purpose if you would use only one name in this discussion. That the drivl was in quotes is irrelevant as you offered no source - but oddly now defend that it ...

You are simply ignorant, but that can change. Have you yet sought out the defintion of scientific theory or has your intellectual cowardice driven you to permanent ignorance? I'll repeat the points you chose to ignore. Evolution is a scientific theory. Theories in science are not casual concepts (no...

This is not an oral forum, it is written. Therefore chllenging pronunciation of written english displays "ignorance." Ignorance is not a perjorative term - it merely says you don't know what you're talking about. This has been the case with odinraven and you (likely the same person). Unlik...

Agree with astra, there might be phenotypic plasticitymtoward adaptation but probably not much genetic change, esp. as you've offered no selective element in your scenario. You might explore some social factor for selection in breeding that drives change more rpidly. What is the motivation for "...

In reference to embryo development - the dividing mass of cells is initially held within a membranous structure - zona pellucida - that is eventully breached shortly before implantation. It has more than a mechnical function as it's involved in sperm binding.
