Here is a very simple explanation as to how new species form.

1) Take a parent species of Finch from the mainland.
2) Transport finch to an island (Galapagos).
3) Wait some time, for changes to occur.
4) New species form

The new species of finch are independent to the ones on the mainland. they cannot breed with the ones on the mainland, yet they were once one and the same. The new species cannot be found anywhere else in the world other than these islands. If the theory of evolution is not true, how do you explain this?

Its so simple!!!!

This is basically why 80% of the animal life on Madagascar (I think) is native to the island, and the reason for the 'hobbit' species of early homosapiens.

I saw a very interesting Documentary on the Hobbit and how when the early homo-erectus (i think it was) arrived on the island it started to shrink because of less space, less food etc. There were apparantly also elephants that 'swam' to the islands in Indonesia and eventually got much much smaller.

I'd like to see the creationists explain these things. Or explain how virus evolve, yet evolution is somehow a complete sham. But i guess there are things we would all like to see, but will never get to.
