Derek, you are without doubt one of the most arrogant and ill-informed
prats I have ever had the misfortune to come across. Do you really think
that this trivial, pathetic line of ill-reason is going to shake the
foundations of modern biology, geology and zoology? Come on man, your
average bible-bashing teenager could come up with a more lucid and
compelling argument than that very sad bit of waffle.
I would be very suprised if you knew what the Theory of Evolution even
says, much less had any valid criticism of it.
Evolution may be a "blindly followed fundamentalist doctrine" to the
ignorant who parrot its conclusions, but to those of us who have actually
bothered to study it, it is one of the most insightfull pieces of
scientific reasoning and observation in history, and the foundation of
almost all modern life sciences.

Go Read a book, you sad man!
