Main Question or Discussion Point
Ok...I was never good at science b/c I am religious and I do have a hard time with evolution and I had problems with most things that i was taught. So I turned science off. however, i am a logical thinker. So someone tell me in logical terms and in a way that I can understand considering I am not familiar with all the things you are familiar with, why do things evolve? In my mind, either things are built to survive, or they're not. If a single cell organism was the first living thing, how did it evolve? First of all? What caused it to form "societies"? Were they not happy the way they were? Were they bored? Do single cell organisms have feelings? Do they want to survive and are willing to do what it takes to survive? And if they don't have these "feelings" then what caused it to group together? Why would these organisms not be perfectly content the way they were? Was their existance in jeopardy? If so, why did they just not die? They exist, conditions no longer allow them to exist, they die. And birds or monkeys or whatever, if conditions became too harsh for them, how did they take millions of years or thousands or whatever to change so they could survive? Woudn't they have died in the process?? I was told in classes that they needed a different type of wing to do this or a bigger nostril to breathe or darker feathers to not get eaten. Does this make sense? Who can give me a clear and easy way to understand answers to these questions? And these theories. WHy are they so widely accepted when they can't be proven? We have the finished product which is us, and then bits and pieces of this puzzle that supposedly come from millions or billions of years?? Such small pieces of evidence of what really happened in this whole creation thing. I just have troubles with it! Thanks!
