Let's take the two arguements and turn them into libraries.
In one you have millions of books. You have maps, computers, chem labs. You have people studying and learning and writing new books. You have the sick being healed, the dumb being taught. There is a large globe hanging from the ceiling.
In one you have really old men raping and sodomizing little boys while eating babies screaming "I'm a God!" while women are being burnt at the stake. As you look past the stacked bodies of Native Americans, or as these people call them "Savages", you see a book waaaaaay off in the distance. After walking around the heads of Jews piled up next to a map of Earth that "proves" it is flat and through the tools of torture used to "prove" someone is a witch you reach this book. Next to it are people dying of easily cured diseases but instead of taking medicine or other treatment are praying for a cure. You go to read it but another really old men throws things at you screaming in a lanuage you don't understand. As you run away you trip over the body of a former African Slave worked to death after being told the book "proved" he was less then the men raping little boys and eating babies and deserved to be slaves.
Hmmm, which one am I going to follow?
Also, in the first one, they have fossils lined on the walls the prove Macroevolution with Bears into Whales and Fish into Salamanders.

Apart from the evolution witnessed in laboratory settings, the best example I can find for recent speciation is the London Underground mosquito. The London Underground is the world's oldest, started in 1863. In its deeper tunnels (which were built in the early 1930s), a species of mosquito can be found which can't be found anywhere else on Earth. Either God is still creating new animals, or he had these guys in storage waiting for James Greathead to invent the machinery needed to dig said tunnels. Either way, they didn't exist when God created the world. And if that's the case, it seems a bit inaccurate calling that act "Creation", when he didn't create everything.

Sorry if this has been mentioned i only read the first couple pages.
Isnt looking at yourself evidence enough of evolution? I mean think of your immune system, it evolves at a rate we can acctually witness right? or think of drugs and tolerance(note receptors aswell). Your body is constantly adapting and changing. Just because something changes to slowly to be witnessed by you it does not mean it isnt changing.
Just thinkin outloud!

Why not put a piece of mud in a gun instead of bullets then when it doesn't fire say guns don't work.
Why not smash a TV with a hammer then say hammers don't work as remote controls?(They aren't supposed to be used as remote controls so being used wrong)
Of course, why spend time looking for anwsers when you can spend your time raping a 8 year old Altar Boy?
