"Has there been any kind of evidence of evolution to support any kind of theory?"

Hello Fade. That's an extremely broad question. Perhaps you would do well to better define what you mean by evolution. In the most general sense, evolution means the pervasive change that exists in the universe (matter and life included). Biologists define evolution as the change in the gene pool over time. If the latter definition is what you seek, then your statement is unjustified. Any creationalist (even bzrd, judging from some of his previous posts) would agree that there is good evidence to support the definition of evidence just defined. Evolution is based on the scientific method and is well established, and perhaps it is creationism that promotes dogma. Creationism arguments rest solely on the disproof of evolution. A sort of negative proof, so that in disproving evolution, they believe they are proving creationism (because it's supposedly the only alternative).

But let me ask you this, does disproving Hinduism, automatically prove atheism? I don't think it does. Therefore, this whole approach creationist use is unscientific, and illogical.
