Quite honestly I didn't find much evidence for macro evolution. The only good evidence for that was the embryology with the gills. Almost all the evidence could be given to prove a common creator and micro evolution.

Small changes over time generation, how do you account for major changes were todays intermediate animals, you base it on hunches just a hunch DNA gives me a hunch of a designer. Ive heard many times scientits say dna is information if it aint information then what is it. How did animals take to the air. How if it didnt happen instanly did fish grow lungs. Were did mammals come from every other animal lays eggs. The embryo thats old news thats assumption you just think that in fact almost all evolution is they kinda look like it i think they evolved the embryo my look like a tadpole but that is just assumptions. Its not proof it isnt the smoking gun i wonder what insects embryos look like. Embryos are not evidence they are different animals altogether.

Reply Kwinten says: May 31, 2018 at 11:12 pm The trained eye can pick out a Monet from a group of paintings. A gearhead can pick out the make and model of various cars by brand. Point number 1 you made could be evidence of evolution, or it could be evidence of a common Designer called God. Point number 2, the fossil record could be evidence of evolution, or it could be evidence of various species by a similar Designer named God, that died out in years past. Point 3 could be evidence of evolution, or it could be evidence of the adaptability built into the creatures a Grand Designer made. Be careful about speaking in absolutes. We once thought the world was for sure flat (although I believe God's ancient prophets new otherwise). Science changes constantly as we discover more and more about God's universe, or multiverse. Evolution may be how it went down; but if so God designed that too. Adaptation is only evidence of adaptation. Be careful not to suggest fact where opinion still reigns. I for one believe fully in God and enjoy science as a means to discover more and more God's genius. Creation may have gone down the way the Bible suggests as well. At some point in all our grand journey we will all know individually. I for one see God as all knowing and powerful, the Perfect Scientist creating and maintaining a vast universe through governing laws and forces that we people have only begun to glimpse. Reply Bruce Gao says: June 1, 2018 at 8:49 am Hey, to all creationists, go and explain to me why there are antibiotic resistant superbugs when viruses naturally gets destroyed by antibiotics, because viruses have learnt to adapt against antibiotics, why? Because evolution! Explain to me why bacteria mutates every 20 minutes? Because evolution! If the earth is only a few thousand year old as some creationists say, why do we find rocks dated to millions or billions of years old, why do mutations occur? Because evolution! Reply Geert Kok says: June 9, 2018 at 1:03 pm I looked at several computer animations of evolution, but never something unexpected has happened. Very boring populations that evolve in to their programmed destiny. Nothing above it. And to me thats what things do. If you move them, they move into the direction that you move. No spectacular entities … only populations topping of on their parametered programs. Thats how God works, thats what the body is. If you ask about them they will tell you that the environment changes thus the entities change. But than again the question arises why the environment changes and the conclusion is that the entities change. So still there is not any indication of a self-developing environment or self-developing entity. It has a cause. They will say it is random and productive some times. Well that is very interesting because that would mean that the outcome would suddenly be different than expected. To me that is the same as that God did it and that i find more in line with my lifes experiences than that suddenly things randomly start to exist or change. It also does not explain why man is so much higher in order than all species known. Why did man become the dominant species. Bible says rule over the earth. Evolution has no answers. Consciousness is a miracle, morals are gone. Read if you doubt it Nietsches (God is dead) "the madman" A very interesting piece on human morality. No evidence is really lacking and difficult because it is outside of our scope of ages. So only computers could convince us. But as i said, my computer is more often cracking down than running. Sorry to tell you. Things are not that scientifically perfect. Lots of examples on this. SO concluding it confirms to me the lack of creativity and morals. I would not expect a computer to think for me a single day. I trust the engineers and designers and their morals. Thats what convinces me… So it only confirms the non-creative aspect of dead things. You need a creator, programmer whatever… For God that is his spirit as God explained he blew his spirit in adams nose. Spirit is something very interesting. Every human action has a spirit. It is the character of the man. The spirit is like his name. He carries it with dignity. All these aspects of life are becoming irrelevant if you consider people as material. Their atoms don't pile up as a living being. There needs to be order and growth. Exactly these types of "random" aspects you ignore by expecting millions of years to do something. Years are made up of processes and these processes have their complexity back to basic principles that are decided from DNA. You cannot use a computer without a program. AI is nothing without a program. Thinking that it is creative and will someday compose Bach or built an alter is foolish. Why would it deviate from everything we see around us. Only the miracle of life can be experienced because of the life. He who is the way, the truth, the life. God himself, who entered our world by the virgin Mary, her son was created by the spirit his father. This is who Jesus is. He proved to be eternal and raised from the death. Just like all christians if not all humanity will, if God helps us. What bothers me is that evolutionists rather except an extraterresterial entity than a creator that is immaterial, timeless and the source of everthing. To me that is just stubborn and has nothing to do with scientific unproving this theologic argument. It is just a matter that they don't like the idea God overpowering them. And that is exactly who God is. The bible puts it this way: Every man falls short to the the Glory of God. I am sorry for any atheist or scientist refusing to acknowledge he is an agnostic. But God as defined by the dictionary is some metaphysical entity bigger than us. Duh! 1. It has not been proven that God does not exists2. Everything that is not proven is untrueergo God does not exist is untrueergo God exists… Very plain logic. It argues for Agnosticism. That is the only possition an honest man can take. It is consistent with biblical revelation. You only need faith as a mustard seed. It is only faith in God and if you believe in God, believe in Jesus because of his miracles. If you never seen a miracle ask a christian. He has seen lots of them. He knows Gods power. He was overwellmed by them when he accepted Jesus, the Christ, the son of God.

Keep in mind any answer you give cannot be adaptable to relgion ie. "It just is". 2. I heard "SCIENTISTS" say humans are going to eventually evolve without a the baby toe, I thought that was essential to our balance?3. its random but no one can give a non ignorant answer yet, our wisdom today is solved through surgery, some say you can possibly die depending on the severity of how the tooth comes in, so what was done before all this technology, evolution says its a problem now because we "evolved" smaller jaws, well what about native americans? or even the white people who took their land, were the ancestors of america living with their wisdom teeth? if not what decade did americans start evolving smaller jaws, why would we even "evolve" into smaller jaw creatures? Reply EYE NAN says: July 10, 2018 at 8:51 pm Well theory and hypothesis are far different than law. The concept Evolution is still called "Theory" even after so many so called strong evidence. It is not called the law of evolution.Firstly, Darwin's observation was based on morphological observation, which with due respect opened a new door for researching and rethinking about evolution. A bird which cuts wood has bigger beak and a similar looking bird which doesn't cut wood has small beak. To him the wood cutting bird evoluted for its need. Well you see how funny that sounds!! If we are evoluted then why bacteria to chimps are left behind. Secondly, there is difference between adaptation and evolution. If you move in to Russia from Sahara first you might face some issues regarding the temperature which gradually your body will be able to tolerate. That doesn't mean you turned into a different species. Like wise if a bacteria adapts to antibiotics its not evolution, its adaptation. You may say evolution is the result of adaptation of many years. But considering the structure of most primitive life form to become human beings after uncountable adaptations, the time that would have been needed, will backdate even before the creation of earth. Besides, you are saying that, unicellular entity turned into whale, elephant, giraffe, Dinosaurs, and also they turned into human beings, chimps, monkeys and also birds and fish? So in that sense bigger structured life forms are more evoluted? Or small strucured? OR, is it based on efficiency in functional organ? Cheeta runs faster than human, elephant is stronger than human, each animal has unique capability.OR, is it about intelligence.If you believer of evolution then what's the basis of understanding one species is developed than another. Moreover, as a "strong proof" of microbiology you are saying that our DNA matches with bla bla blah species- 98% 92% …etc etc. Now think for a while each human being on earth ever born had-has-will have unique DNA. Even there is always slight difference between DNA of parents and offspring. So you and your father, are you different species? So telling the match of most of DNA pattern is a "Strong evidence" won't be enough. Reply Jungle Jargon says: July 11, 2018 at 7:45 pm Here is some math – Evolutionism Refuted The Y chromosome makes duplication errors about every 1-2 generations. There are about 1500 duplication errors in the Y chromosome. How many years have humans been in existence? The maximum age, for our entire existence, as a living organism, is 300,000-500,000 years. It could be a lot less but it can't be more. This alone disproves evolutionism. Richard Dawkins is a disgrace to science. Every object credit giver is a disgrace to science. Theology is the highest form of science there is. Reply John Vanzant says: July 13, 2018 at 10:00 pm Two years later and I'm still waiting for evidence. Poor athiests never seem to learn. Reply Eu Mesm says: July 14, 2018 at 8:21 pm Well between the Transitional Form 1 and the Transitional Form 2 there should be multiple forms between the transitional form one and two, that changes gradually and slowly over time. It's just a interpretations to assume that all those are transitional forms. It's just a speculation. Seems like just variations of the same species to me. Reply Aidan Watson says: July 21, 2018 at 4:58 pm Youre reaching using "evidence" that everyone has except lying about how you got it. Petrification can take only 30 days even now. And you can go as deep in the fossil record you want but that still doesn't explain all the missing links we should definitely have found by now. Plus fossils showing up in places they shouldn't. And carbon dating conveniently only works on old objects but can't even date a newer object so not sure that's at all reliable. Plus no definitive laboratory evidence so you basically wasted all your time lying to people. Reply Paul Nobody says: July 22, 2018 at 1:01 pm Unprovable assertions! Darwinism is a cult.

And you Darwinians are still banging your head against the wall, still trying to prove your crap with assertions. GO AWAY, LEAVE THE THINKERS TO THE SCIENCE. Reply Ach Hadda says: July 29, 2018 at 1:50 am Cool story Bro, but we can't even prove that Protein can be observed changed by a mutation scientifically which is the base to start life or evolution, so the basis is kind of hypotheses Reply Matija Bandic says: July 29, 2018 at 6:45 am What evidence do we have that “horselike” fossil record came from same species but are not completely different species from different geological times? Do we have evidence for genetic drift and speciation ? Bacteria adaptation to antibiotics isn’t good example cause those mutations are limited and tend to correct through generations when environmental pressure release. Reply GSpotter63 says: July 30, 2018 at 6:51 pm But what about all of the fossils?…. Talk about the belief in something with no proof…….. Believe it or not the very basis of the evolutionary theory is supported by nothing but assumptions and the use of the fallacy of circular reasoning. Evolution teaches that all life evolved from a common source….(AKA abiogenesis). For that to be a fact, that first life must have diverged from one Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species, to another Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. In order for all forms of life to have come from just one common ancestor it would require that this one source of life diverge, crossing all classification lines, even the big ones. We have observed and recorded life adapting to changing environmental conditions producing slight variations on the Species level. Some even refusing to or incapable of interbreeding again. But never has anybody ever recorded a change at or above the Family or Genus level. To say that it is a fact and that this has actually happened is disingenuous…It is nothing but a speculation not an observable scientific fact. It is an assumption required to support the theory that all life evolved from a common ancestor and nothing more. The branches of the "Tree Of Life" and the names that have been given presented by academia indicating the ancestors of one organism transforming into another are unseen speculations invented by man to help organize and classify individual life forms and nothing more. The transitions presented within the "Tree Of Life" charts are speculations, not observed facts. POINTING TO THE REMAINS OF AN ORGANISM BURIED UNDER LAYERS OF SEDIMENTARY STRATA AND PROCLAIMING THAT IT IS THE PROGENY OF ANOTHER DIFFERENT ORGANISM BERRIED FARTHER DOWN IN ANOTHER LAYER OF STRATA IS CALLED AN ASSUMPTION. NOT A FACT. The descendancy proposed between different fossils is in itself nothing but an assumption……. Evolutionary proponents find the fossilized remains of an animal; let's call it animal "A". And then they find the fossilized remains of another animal let's call it animal "B". It is clear to even a fifth grader that "A" and "B" are not of the same species, genus or even family. But to support evolutionary theory that all life came from a common source it is speculated that "A" is a descendant of" "B. Then the proponents of evolutionary theory use this speculated assumption of descendancy as the very basis of their entire theological construct. And will even go so far as to use this assumed descendancy as a proof for that very assumed descendancy. You can't use your assumption as a proof for your assumption. This would be called a fallacy; the fallacy of circular reasoning. But for some reason those in scientific circles have no problem ignoring this obvious fallacy. It is clear that there are vast variations within groups. (AKA groups like…Canines, Felines, Bovines, Malacostraca, Cephalopods… ) But the only thing connecting these vastly different groups and the fossils of "A" to "B" as in the example above is their assumptions….. There is no observed descendancy, no DNA to test in the case of extinct examples, just a bias assumption required to support their narrative that all life diverged from a common ancestor. So …Is evolution a settled scientific fact based on verifiable observable evidences or a belief in their unobserved assumptions of descendancy? I have never met anybody with more believe in the unseen then an atheist/evolutionist.

Reply Pure Energy says: October 20, 2018 at 1:33 pm Why do people constantly ignore quantum physics for their proof?There is much evidence for constant creation. It is called E=mcsquared.Energy is always bursting forth, spinning, vibrating, pulsating, oscillating, resonating and rotating. Read a quantum physics book like the one called "Hands of Light" written by the physicist Barbara Brennan. When energy is ALWAYS bursting forth as quarks spinning billions of times a second as 3 points of light, forming what are called protons and neutrons, THEN evolution is impossible. What we have is a holographic universe, where we are holograms. There are many details to this that can be found in this book.There are many physics and electricity books that say we are electrical/magnetic energy field vibrations. Protons spin as positive charges and electrons spin as negative charges. This is the easiest sentence to remember, yet everyone forgets it. From the site "Ask a Mathematician, Ask a Physicist" I received this email recently: What are "actual pictures" of atoms actually pictures of?. Physicist:Actual pictures of atoms aren’t actually pictures at all.There are a few good rules of thumb in physics. Among the best is:light acts like you’d expect on scales well above its wavelength andacts weird on scales below. In order to take a picture of a thing youneed light to bounce … The only thing physicists have actually seen is basically a computerimage, not the real image, and second, they observe electric fields,not the particle itself. They do not observe particles themselves;they are able to observe only the field. However this alone does notprove anything, but that the electric energy field exists and that’sabout it—no atoms, no photons, no electrons, no quarks. no nothing.So no, particles do not exist. Particles exist only insidemathematical abstractions and nothing more and nothing else. We don’tknow what actually exists in the real world, except that there areenergy fields—electric, magnetic and all other forms and all otherkinds of energy fields. I forgot to add what exactly is visualized with all these microscopesincluding STM–the scanning tunneling microscope. What is visualized is the charge density of the electric field.Basically you observe vibrations—electric vibrations.You haven’t seen an atom either. You’ve seen an image you assume to bean atom, but it is simply an instrument’s representation of the atom.It is not the atom itself. These techniques aren’t actually “visual” like microscopes we workwith in biology classes. Microscopes use lenses and light to help zoomand focus on small objects. Electron microscopes, on the other hand,use quantum scattering theory to construct the shape of small objects,then the data is transferred to a computer to create a model. Thewavelengths of visible light ranges on the order of ~370nm to 750nm.These are all MUCH larger than many particles of interest (and way toolarge to view atoms, which are on the order of Angstroms–0.1nm).Scientists need to be creative to be able to “see” atoms. So, no, scanning tunneling microscopes and atomic force microscopesdid not prove the existence of atoms. SO…….according to all the books I have read, God is an electrical/magnetic energy field vibrational being OR computer, since we are projected images coming from it—–like on a computer as in O1O1O1O1O1 Reply edgy guy says: October 23, 2018 at 4:29 pm I'm listening to this because I've been raised Christian my whole life but never had any experiences with God.

All known cells either have ATP synthase or depend on another cell that has it to survive. This is a complex enzyme that depends on other enzymes and the code on DNA to be generated. How did the code and the other enzymes evolve? How did the systems that regulate ATP synthase evolve? Wake up people, macro evolution is fairy tale. A simple amide (a part of the amino acid – the basic building block of proteins) does not form by chance, it is formed by cells that have the machinery to make it – the N2 bond is extremely difficult to break. Without amides you don't have life. Molecular machines (themselves built following a code) made of amino acids (which contain amides) are necessary to make amides. Let alone amino acids and just forget about proteins! All the evidence points to purposeful, intentional design, that is, intelligent design. Regarding this video, read "Icons of Evolution" by Jonathan Wells. He debunks with hard evidence all the so called evidence in the video. Regarding the last point in the video, that evolution happens under our very eyes, these bacteria that become antibiotic resistant, or that develop the ability to degrade nylon, are still the same bacteria. Much less do they become eukaryotes (cells that have a nucleus). Think of all the simultaneous mutations necessary in order for a bacteria to become a nucleated cell! This just does not happen by chance and you can't have natural selection without cells to begin with. Wake up my friends, we were created, all the life around us was created.

Is this all we have to go on? If Haeckel's image was proven to be debunked, as stated in the video, then why use it to support the case of evolution? Why not utilize an accurate alternative? Is this education? Don't attack the Bible or Creationist theories. That is also not proof of evolution. I am on a quest to understand why so many people in the world are so adamant about micro-evolution being based in fact? I'm not trying to outsmart anyone or make anyone look the fool. I am truly trying to understand why we should accept micro-evolution as factual. If this is "about as strong as theories get", the theory of evolution is pretty weak.

Reply Ward Hively says: December 17, 2018 at 3:48 pm In my opinion, there are seemingly obvious flaws in your description @khanacademy. Note: I mean no disrespect to your belief nor anyone else’s in this comment however I can not ignore the obvious. 1. Mesohippus to Equs. 34 million years to present. Visually, the specimens you have displayed all resemble the same species. It would be unreasonable to assume by visual appearance that the changes in this species are any different than the changes found in canines. Which man has effectively made evident that a species can range from a dog the size of a purse to a massive animal such as a Great Dane. Man has yet to bring a canine to a entirely different species. Further bringing rise to the question, did this species adapt with its environment as the bacteria you have mentioned at the end of the video did? 2. You mentioned embryonic development. In an educational video, I feel deeply concerned with your example. Providing an over exaggerated visual is misleading, and you had clearly stated at 7:08 to 7:30 in the video. Please provide proper evidence, as Hackel is extremely misleading and you should not mislead an audience. 3. I find it necessary when discussing DNA in a educational video, to show the chain of amino acids to ensure that audience you are speaking to can visually see the “similarities”4. Lastly, it is extremely unreasonable to assume that mankind, which had allegedly began 200,000 years ago, ( somebody help me with the exact date) would not have a transitional species in the fossil layer given the “profound” evidence of other changes in mammals skeletal structures in the fossil layer. ( see the small dog to Great Dane example as profound, again same species)5. I see no visible “ direct” evidence that man has either contributed too, nor discovered a change in species altogether over time. After watching your video, which stated in the beginning of the video as “ evolution having almost indisputable evidence”, I can see no other reason than to assume it is a theory without the information I have noted. Reply winis bell says: January 3, 2019 at 12:15 am How evidence is used to support evolution? Reply kirill massey says: January 6, 2019 at 10:17 pm Sal, I have a few counter proposals. Care to listen? Reply Scott Statt says: January 10, 2019 at 11:28 pm But you just showed that over millions of years the "horse" did not evolve. Just one type came more dominant. Reply Nix Arnold says: January 15, 2019 at 9:08 am Praise God!! Reply Only Repentance !!! says: January 15, 2019 at 4:08 pm Darwin promoted change of kinds. No one has ever observed a fish become a bird. No one has ever observed a change of kinds. DNA hints at a common creator. The be all end all is no one has observed something come from nothing. Ever.

Reply Ronnie Coffman says: January 16, 2019 at 3:52 am Great evidence for microevolution but just because different animals share bone structures with humans doesn't prove a common ancestor but rather a the same creator using the same design throughout the creation process Reply KJ_DiamondMiner says: January 22, 2019 at 8:47 pm 3:49 flippers not fins 😒 Reply shosty says: January 27, 2019 at 1:58 am Homologous structures, as evidence for evolution, are compelling if one presupposes only purely naturalistic explanations. And changes in organisms such as bacteria and viruses do not involve an increase of complexity (i.e. single cell to human being). Reply saved by grace through faith says: January 29, 2019 at 2:25 pm Dude you got issues if you believe you are related to yeast and flies.But it's more logical that the only connections is1. Formed out of the earth2. By a common designer This would predict that the elements within all life would be similar to elements found in the earth. This is true….It would also predict that similarities in structure for similar functions Reply Travis Hernandez says: February 1, 2019 at 8:30 pm This video is not convincing at all. As a Biologist I’ve always been skeptical and was too afraid to question Evolution but now I’m convinced evolution is just a hunch that some believe. I do believe in “micro evolution” but it’s true at the end of the day a dog is a dog and cat is a cat. The homologous proff is also a bad point, in botany we have ectotypes which we understand that it’s not evolution that supports a mutation. Even natural selection has been criticized by most scientist. Reply Gordon McElvany says: February 9, 2019 at 4:37 am They have never found evidence in an evolution of "kinds" changing to different kinds. They previously called them "missing links." Ever wonder why they dropped that term? Creates doubt. There should be trillions of missing links. Reply bob malfrank says: February 18, 2019 at 6:02 pm My dad always says "evolution is wrong, there's holes in the theory" boy I wonder if that's why it's still a theory and not a law Reply Tate O'Connor says: February 24, 2019 at 4:24 pm “As strong as a theory gets”So what you’re saying is, it’s still a T H E O R Y Reply Spicy Cat says: March 11, 2019 at 11:09 pm If evolution being a theory is a roadblock guess we can’t believe in gravity either.

One needs to ponder the fierceness academia clings to this lead balloon.Well, grant money needs to be bonafide. 2.) the folks of The Eugenics Society are needing to be right. 3.) There is a great advantage being taken of the Civilian Short Term History.Go to church guys. You've been born for a one time only ticket to get it right. After that comes a one only audience before the judgement seat. Just you and the Creator.And many of you will not have the excuse … No one told me. Reply Jacob McKinley says: March 28, 2019 at 10:18 pm Guys don't worry i'm not stupid. I believe in evolution and all, but i'm wondering if its true that homologous structures are not from homologous genes. Reply Ulterior Motif says: April 5, 2019 at 6:49 pm I'm not seeing anything here significant enough to change my mind. Why is this explanation any better than another? I get that it's sound enough for a base explanation, but not compelling enough to change. Reply Hammad Anwar says: April 12, 2019 at 8:35 pm about the illustration from Haeckel's Anthropogenie, it is not entirely correct, and several articles say that it is fake.and why should we depend on an illustration from 1874 while we have advanced technologies nowadays .

Reply Incidents Inc. says: May 12, 2019 at 5:48 am Why not say they r the same species but different race? 🤔 Reply WISDOM CROW says: June 10, 2019 at 7:31 pm There are many types of evolution and most should be call a type of Adaptation. Direct observation of this can be explained as a whole new subject and has nothing to do with evolution. The only things we have observed to change in such ways are iphones, toothbrushes, cars etc.. In this day and age with all the advancements in technology, Science and being more open minded with the freedom to be able to put our minds together, there are still kinks, stubbornness and ego's that we will always face. If we will just learn to put our ego and pride aside and stop being brainwashed and brainwashing others in the Belief of human evolution. It's only a theory and the earth is not flat anymore ether and earth is not the center of the universe like how some people think they are the center of knowledge. It's tough I know. I don't know how it all began. Nobody knows but it is fun to think about.
