The neo-Darwinist model, which we shall take as the mainstream theory of evolution today, argues that life has evolved through two natural mechanisms:
"natural selection" and "mutation". The theory basically asserts that natural selection and mutation are two complementary mechanisms. The origin
of evolutionary modifications lies in random mutations that take place in the genetic structures of living things. The traits brought about by
mutations are selected by the mechanism of natural selection, and by this means living things evolve...............

Well now, arent you thinking for yourself? Lets look at what you said:
"Evolution does not happen"
Now I am sure you have taken an anti-biotic before, maybe you have even taken a flu-shot or something similar to that. Can you remember the doctors
instructions? When you take an anti-biotic, you are prescribed a dosage, and a specific time length. You are typically told for infections and such
that you need to take this anti-biotic for the time limit even if the symptoms dissapear and you feel good. Why? If you take an anti-biotic, it
typically kills all of the infecting agent, but sometimes a known biological issue can occur. Your symptoms may dissapear, but a tiny amount of this
infector is left. If you stop taking anti-biotics now, that small amount of the infector will reproduce, and your infection will redevelop. So what
you say? (because you cannot think for yourself obviously). WEll, the significance of this is that the infection that survived the initial dose of
the anti-biotic had a stronger immunity to the anti-biotic. All that is left to reproduce is a stronger agent. So, when your infection redevelops,
it is going to be extremely hard to kill with the original anti-biotic. has occured and is a known issue. What has happened is the evolution of a
Evolution does occur in this instance, so your misguided statement that you got from listening to others without thinking for yourself is wrong.
