Why do creationists always rely on this dichotomy of evolution to strengthen their points?
Macroevolution refers to how new species and taxa are created, I realize this. There are different types of speciation (allopatric, parapatric and sympatric); speciation is a topic of much debate among evolutionary biologists; but what do you suggest - Goddidit? Hello, we have molecular clocks!
Concerning natural selection and humans, technological advancements in medicine and the standard of living have improved in developed nations, so we are protected (somewhat) from the vagaries of nature.
Natural selection has not stopped, but it has been slowed down. Sexual selection is still at work and natural selection still operates in parts of the developing world.
Cultural evolution is working faster than biological evolution, but both have to be taken into consideration regarding the changes in our species.
