The fact you find such large flaws with the current understanding of evolution demonstrates, contrary to your claims, that you do have a misunderstanding of the scientific method. Regardless of what you claim. You have demonstrated that beyond doubt.

Please do explain it to me.
I need help to jump the hurdles of evolutionary faith.
But, Clearskies, it is admirable to see that you will use an Islamic source for your arguments ... Very multi faith of you ...
I didn't know it was muslim, but, that's not the point.
The point is the fossils that show NO adaptations....
This fossil tiger skull shows that tigers have been exactly the same for the last 80 million years, without undergoing any alterations.
Tigers (and all other carnivores) are descended from civet-like animals called miacids that lived during the age of the dinosaurs about 60 million years ago. These small mammals, with long bodies and short flexible limbs, evolved over millions of years into several hundred different species, including cats, bears, dogs and weasels. Approximately 37 cat species exist today, including Panthera tigris, the tiger.
The earliest tiger fossils date back to somewhere between 1.5 and 2 million years ago and in approximately the same geographic distribution as modern tigers had a hundred years ago (when they still maintained a substantial range) with the possible addition of Beringia - i.e. Alaska.
Lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars are all members of the same genus: Panthera and all represent radiations of a common ancestor that was probably morphologically most similar to the modern leopard and lived about five million years ago.
The oldest remains of a tiger-like cat, called Panthera palaeosinensis, have been found in China and Java. This species lived about 2 million years ago, at the beginning of the Pleistocene, and was smaller than a modern tiger. The earliest fossils of true tigers are known from Java, and are between 1.6 and 1.8 million years old. Distinct fossils from the early and middle Pleistocene were also discovered in deposits from China, and Sumatra. A subspecies called the Trinil tiger (Panthera tigris trinilensis) lived about 1.2 million years ago and is known fossils found at Trinil in Java.
