Response #3 to Pastor Al
By Merle Hertzler
Here is the next comment posted to me by Pastor Alfredo Martinez Jr. at my blog.
On weekends I am very busy. Thanks for your patience.
I have read your reply. I apalogize for not remaining on the topic of evolution. So let's continue. (You have challenged me to better myself on this topic and I accept.)
If you do not mind, can we start slow? What is your definition of evolution?
Here is my response:
You asked me to define evolution. The definition at Wikipedia
is a good place to start: "In the life sciences, evolution is a change in the
traits of living organisms over generations, including the emergence of new
species. Since the development of modern genetics in the 1940s, evolution has
been defined more specifically as a change in the frequency of alleles in a
population from one generation to the next. In other fields evolution is used
more generally to refer to any process of change over time. "
evolution refers to the change in the genes of populations of creatures with
respect to time. Science has shown that this process of biological evolution is
responsible for the variations of life today.
