That argument implies that evolution is just a chaotic random set of mutations that happened to bring our planet to this state of highly evolved life, it implies that life is striving for the easiest possible existence, which would lead to a weaker existence in my opinion
I will focus on the fossil record, as it is the cornerstone that the entire evolutionary edifice is built upon.
When an animal is confronted with a stressful, dangerous or different and difficult environment it goes through a process in it's lifetime of becoming tuned in to it's new home. It ceases to just exist in it's happy niche and it's brain starts to pay close attention to it's new world. In a colder environment with much snow, the hairs and foul start to bear young that have traits that will help them deal with their environment. They are born with more hair, maybe it is white, and even their young are born to grow larger bodies maybe. This does not take hundreds of thousands of years, it starts to happen in the very first generations after climate or environment change. If it didn't happen this way most species would have died off long ago or never came to be.

In 2027,a scientist will bring proof that its no way that a ape or mans ancestor could still be living in the same time, going to see ones relatives at the zoo.

No, sound does not evolve.

1) We don't have a good definition for species. Until a fully accurate, reliable definition has been provided, all else is unprovable in a systemic manner.
2) No fossil, anywhere - proves evolution: The reasoning behind this is simple. If we find a group of creatures of similar build located in the same geological area and strata, we can conclude that there was indeed a small group of similar creatures living in that area. What we cannot prove is that those bones had children, let alone different children. We CAN assume based on their location that they COULD produce similar children, but does NOT prove that they could produce different ones.
3) Radiometric dating of rocks is inherently inaccurate.
Accuracy levels of less than twenty million years in two-and-a-half billion years are achievable.

Of course you are right, and these things take thousands of years to make real complete changes most of the time I'm sure, especially on a species level, I just don't agree that it takes hundreds of thousands of years, and I also don't agree that it stems from random mutations.

Can you point me to the info on the, according to most geologist there was a 'global event' at least four thousand of years ago and do they also agree it was a global flood.
