Re: Evolution in a microcosm

Well, it would appear that this subject hasn't died, though I admit that I haven't read all my messages yet.
OK Zack, what is your problem with Evolution and what do you think is an alternative, having shot at this theory (which , by the way remains a theory rather than a law because it cannot be mathematically proven) surely you have an alternative?
In a previous message, that I erroneously sent just to the person who mailed it rather than the list, I recommended "Almost Like a Whale," I reckon this to be one of, if not the, best book on this subject (proof of evolution). I'd recommend it even to those who believe in alternative theories.
I think that the biggest misconception that I saw in the replies on this subject have been that Creationist Theory is the only Alternative to Evolution. I understand that there are other alternatives and would like to know more. Not enough information is available on the alternatives other than Creationist Theory.
