Ok here we go, but I don't want to see the words micro and macro evolution being thrown about, because those are weasel words to try and squirm out.
(a) We've observed evolution in the lab. What do you think antibiotic resistance is? That is a fairly low level of evolution but it is evolution none the less. Bacteria have managed to evolve to resist the antibiotic.
(b) We've been able to showthe correlation between various species on a genetic level. When you see those pretty branching diagrams, a fairly simple program in R (with a hefty wad of genetics data) and some time, will generate one. I've done it. So you can predict where species diverged from one another. Funnily these predictions tend to line up where we observe various fossil appearing for the first time.
(c) WE can trace using genetic data that humans evolved in Africa. It lines up with the fossil record. Timing calculated also lines up with appearance of Homo sapiens fossils.
There are three. I have more.

Scientists have discovered that you will believe anything if someone says scientists have discovered it.

I never once called it Darwinian evolution - Darwinian Philosophy - it's a thought construct, science should be useful IMHO!
And 150 years of research? Are you really going to lay claim to all of the failed hoaxes etc. that went on in the first 100 years of your supposed evidence. Hilarious...
It's only been over the last, what, 30-40 years that there has been any evidence that's even debatable.
And yet again, noone has bothered even trying to discuss the earth age, the apparent "million year" formations of strata, which has now been proven as not being necessary. Proven! In a lab! Observably! Geological structures such as Grand Canyon can be created under the right conditions in a matter of weeks/months, not millions of years.
You are a shining example of the closed-mindedness of the "educated" masses. Shine on fail-monkey!
