Evolution is too true!

Meet the latest enemy of creationists, Mister Anolis sagrei, otherwise known as the Black Anole. This week's issue of New Scientist has a report on how these little critters are further proof (not that any further proof is needed) that evolution is really real. According to the report, when a new larger lizard species was introduced on the islands where the Black Anoles live, the Black Anoles quickly evolved longer legs, which let them run away more quickly.

Here's a link to the article.

Creation Scientists would say that's called mutation not evolution. I respect your intelligence and I won't try to convince you of a 6-day creation or anything :) ... but I'm always careful of saying something proves a theory that is unproveable by observation. No one has observed and recorded this lizard changing into a different kind of creature which is evolution.

At the same time, though I see proof of my faith everywhere because I start with that bias (like evolutionists do), I don't believe that creationism is provable either. They are both faith-based world views.

Maybe I'll let comedian Steven Wright have "my" last word: "My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted".

Nicely presented blog, man.

"quickly evolved"?
