so your theory has the magical ability to change with the wind?
Scientific theories are written in pencil rather than etched in stone. This is not magic. This is the ability to accommodate new discoveries. It is a strength of science, not a weakness.
You will find that truth seekers in every field take a similar approach. All answers are provisional and subject to change in the face of new evidence.
Which brings us to the gift everyone is handing you in this thread with both hands. You are actually being told ways you could go about falsifying the theory of evolution!
It's telling that, instead of taking notes and getting busy on the falsification, you choose flippancy. You mock.
Lame. You'll have to do a lot better than that if you want to send all the natural sciences back to the drawing board.
Produce a fossil mosasaur with the remains of a human in its stomach. That ought to get things rolling.
Good luck.

You are responding to someone that stopped posting here about four years ago. Doubt you'll get a response but stranger things have happened.
Oops.
Oh, well... either I get a response, or I get the last word, eh?
