A more apt example is

There are a bunch of fordtrucks milling about on the road.

Actual Ford trucks drive down this road.

Most fordtrucks are so unaware that they do nothing and are obliterated by the Ford trucks.
However, a few of the fordtrucks, have enough intellect to sense the oncoming Ford trucks and attempt to avoid them by jumping. Not all succeed, but more do than the unaware fordtrucks.
More of these aware fordtrucks survive to reproduce than the unaware fordtrucks - resulting in more aware offspring.

After much time, all of the unaware fordtrucks have been eliminated.

All that survive now are the aware fordtrucks, but they are sufficiently differentiated and are now a new species known as chevytrucks.

This is how evolution works. Not that whatever it was that you originally posted.

Maybe that's what you heard in Sunday School, but what you describe isn't science. There's no god in science.

I agree, it's true. What no one has ever explained to me is WHY are we artificially interfering with it? WHY are we overriding the evolutionary process and deliberately selecting for the devolution of the human species?

Some people are proud, because they aren't intelligent enough not to be.

Evolution doesn't work in a direction.

Humans fit roughly as well in their environment as any single-celled organism.

Adaptation is not evolution. We didn't evolve from an ape.

Just as one develops callouses from over use of our hands it is not evolution. It is the natural protection built in to God's plan for each design in his intricate framework of survival in different situations.

Add to that that we have been altering our environment with technology more and more and you get the answer. Traits that were once vital to survival are no longer as important.

As I said,man is studying what God has already created. This is science looking at the natural laws put in place by God.

I could explain what is wrong with this but I wouldn't waste my time trying to teach a monkey to put together Ikea furniture either, for similar reasons.
