Matthew, you miss the point if you are making that statement. The fact things evolve is not particularly good evidence for "evolution", which is the theory of universal common descent, the microbe to man story (myth?).
No, the theory of universal common descent is... the theory of universal common descent. That's just an aspect of evolutionary theory, and if that's something you have quibbles with (while accepting other portions of evolutionary theory), I suggest that it makes sense to be specific in your terms.

Wrong. It is intellectually dishonest, but not at all surprising for evos to make such false claims as indentifying "heritable change" as "evolution" and yet refer to "universal common descent" as evolution as well. It's dishonest. If you didn't know before, you do now.
Deal with it.
This is ironic, because you appear to be the only one who is equating "evolution" with universal common descent here. So, by your own accusation, who's being dishonest?
