First, Micro-evolution is the only valid scientific form, and does not contradict the bible in any way.
Macro evolution is irrelevant to science, and no one needs to embrace it because the secular world does. In fact, if you read your bible you would have the opposite opinion.
I was a 3.9 student and aced all my biology courses, I even corrected several professors and text books and introduced current research they were unaware of. I am unconvinced that macro evolution has taken place, the evidence is not there. I'm sorry you feel people need to believe it, I didn't.
On a side note, the only question I scored wrong on in one of my biology classes was in determining whether the use of mouthwash is evolution.
The populations of various bacteria change with the introduction of mouthwash to the environment, however after some time has passed the populations returned to pre-mouthwash levels. I argued evolution is change over time (citing the exact definition we were given), and while there was a temporary shift there was no change over time.
My professor said I was wrong, and there was a change, and it was evolution. I then created a scenario. I asked my professor if on an island there were 50 white people and 50 black people when a catastrophe killed 20 white people changing the populations to 30 and 50 respectively, but within 50 years the populations returned to 50 white people and 50 black people, is that evolution? My professor said yes that was evolution. At this point I gave up, knowing no amount of logic would win me back my lost points.
Tell me how the fanaticism for evolution is any different than that for religion?
