More evidence for evolution (just within the last month)

Hmm, so could these be considered transitional fossils? Oh right, all fossils are transitional.

1) Evidence for the evolution of the human ear

2) Four winged dinosaur may be the link to birds

3) Ardi - giving more insight into our genetic relationship with chimps and apes and how we became bipedal

Thanks for pointing this out first thing. A lot of people don't realize that every single fossil on the planet, including the bones in your body that will someday be fossils, are transitional fossils. You have a transitional skeletal structure-- because it used to be different, and someday it will be different still for your species down the road.

I saw "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" and I thought it was really interesting. We give the scientific community so much credit for being objective and, well, scientific, but it really raised some questions about how unbiased that community really is. I liked how balanced the interviews were.

I have it downloaded but haven't sat down to watch it yet. I will shortly and let you know my opinion.

I have a movie you may enjoy, I found it to be quite interesting. "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" it is a documentary about the controversy scientist face while entertaining the idea of intelligent design. I just figured, if you hadn't already seen it, you may be interested. There are interviews with both sides of the fence. I believe my next rental will be "Religulous".
Just interesting points :D

These links are pretty interesting! I'm a Christian and I believe creation to be the origin of the Earth. That being said, we don't know in what state/phase the world was created. As the Bible says, God created the creatures of the sea, air, and land on different days, but who's to say that those creatures were the exact same creatures we know today? I think that's the assumption that a lot of Christians make (myself included, growing up), but none of us were there so how do we know? I think that micro-evolution (slight changes within species to assure the species' survival--ie, survival of the fittest) definitely plays a role in the history of our Earth, but I've never been totally sold on macro-evolution (species evolving from and into completely different species). Findings like these, while not totally convincing to someone like me, are definitely food for thought!

4.4 million years pfft. Haven't you heard? The world is only 7000 years old...and the devil buried all of those "fossils" to trick us ;P
