Donald Johanson found the knee joint of "Lucy," a 40%-complete skeleton of the species Australopithecus afarensis, in a location "Sixty to seventy meters lower in the strata and two to three kilometers away"

Agree, species do not evolve into completely different species. Evolution can only go as far as to explain the formation of sub species. Survival of the fittest is prevalent everywhere in nature. Weather paterns change, food sources change, if a species cannot adapt it becomes extint. It does not transform to a new species.

Mod you may be, but you know, it is not constructive to a conversation such as this to interject dogma. You basically just said that because the theory of evolution states it, its true. But the post by gvret was saying that the evidence can not support such claims, and can only support adaptation within a group. Also, realize that a "new" species can be defined on minute criteria. We were talking one beast to another, like a fish to a lizard, not instantly, but over time, things of that sort. If you missed that, read more carefully. If you didnt, and said what you did still, then for the sake of intelligent discussion, please don't preach your faith. Thanks.
