Do your own research!  REad any real book on evolution.  The scientific method is the most unbiased method we have.  What's the matter, scared your faith will be shaken?

I'm not scared, Evolution makes no sense to me in all honesty, I've stated it before and I'll state it again Evolution has not been proven otherwise Religion would be so obsolete. But seeing the vast numbers of people still going to church and religion still THRIVING it seems to me that Evolution is not as proven as you may think.

Then you don't understand biology, because nothing in biology makes sense without evolution.  The theory of evolution has nothing to do with religion.  AS stated before, most of the world's christians accept evolution.

But seeing the vast numbers of people still going to church and religion still THRIVING it seems to me that Evolution is not as proven as you may think.

Over 99.9% of the world's biologists accept evolution, many of them christians.

Many biologist believe in Progressive Vreation. That god made the world and evolution did the rest.

Alright. Religion and evolution can coexist. It is just that most current religions do not agree with evolution. If you try to take evolution out of the realm of science, then anything you say will not apply. Evolution is science. It is not truth, but it is a scientific fact. One can easily believe that God created life as evolution does not explain the origin of life. Evolution explains how life acts.

Let's start off with the definition of evolution. The real definition; not the one that most Creationists try to feed you. Evolution is the changes seen in the inherited traits of a population from one generation to the next. These changes cause populations of organisms to alter over time.

With that said, an individual cannot evolve. We do not evolve. I cannot evolve in my lifetime. However, the human population can evolve. If the amount of people with blue eyes decrease in the entire world's population, that's evolution.

Want proof? Look around. It's happening all around us. We use evolution to breed better crops and livestock. By selecting the crops and livestock with better genes, we ensure their offspring will have those better genes, and the genes keep getting better and better because we make it so. Want to see it in nature? OK. Check out the islands of Hawaii. They started with one. One species of bird migrated to that island. When a new island formed, the bird moved to that island. Over time the birds on the islands, while from the same ancestor, developed a difference in their DNA. Over time, they become different species. A third island forms, birds from the prior two islands both go to the new island. Since they are different species, they cannot breed with each other, even though they shared the same ancestor. Over time, those species also become new species because they are geographically separated from the other islands. Over time, their DNA also changes making it so they cannot breed with their common ancestor. It's a little hard to sum this up in a paragraph, so I can explain it more if needed.

Humans did not evolve from chimpanzees. It's a lousy argument. Humans share a common ancestor with chimpanzees, which is why we have so much in common. All life evolved from the same thing. That is why all animals are related, why all plants are related, and why all bacteria are related. Life branched out into those categories, and life then evolved into different types of animals, plants, and bacteria after that. The fact remains the same, all life shares the same common ancestor.

Evolution is subsequent. This means that life builds upon life. Also, evolution has never claimed to answer the origin of life. The origin of life will most likely remain unknown for a long time. However, it is easy to believe that a higher being created the first life because it does not contradict evolution.

I can go into more detail, but I'd like to see some basic response first.
