I know I know … “Darwin’s work is just a bunch of THEORIES!”
UPDATE:
Yep, Evolution sure is a theroy … and sound scientific theory can be used to predict things … like this: Lizards Rapidly Evolve After Introduction to Island

In just a few decades the 5-inch-long (13-centimeter-long) lizards have developed a completely new gut structure, larger heads, and a harder bite, researchers say.

If Darwin’s work is inaccurate about anything, it seems that the speed of the Evolution process may be somewhat underestimated.

If an island full of lizards can evolve so drastically in a mere thirty years, with what mankind is currently doing to itself, just how drastically are we affecting our own evolution?
