Because right now it's beeping like crazy. I'll deal with your post "Asking for What?" here, too.

"Mosquitoes which moved into the London Underground train network have become a seperate species, now biting rats and humans instead. That
obviously did not take thousands of years.

the seeds of wind-despersed weedy plants in the daisy
family (Asteracease) are rapidly losing their ability to 'fly'. Specifically, the embyro part of the seed is becoming fatter while the parachute-like 'pappus' that keeps each seed aloft is becoming smaller."


My goodness. Why don't you see that this is evidence for evolution? As a species changes, it gradually becomes so different from its parent species, that copulation is impossible. It's simple logic, man. You just presented two evidential arguments for evolution. Micro-evolution, perhaps, but it ADDS UP.

"are you saying this happens to EVERY baby?"

If you are not a complete clone of your parents, then yes. Obviously some changes take place.
And if they are GOOD changes, chances are you will live longer and pass your genes on.

""...would be willing to say the they (the antarticans) will have "evolved" into something more complex than we are now?"

By 'more complex' do you mean better suited to their environment? If so, yes. There are some species that haven't increased much in complexity (bees, sharks, ants) just in EFFICIENCY. They are already nearly perfect at what they do. In the case of larger, more intelligent animals, complexity is a benefit that helps for survival. A super-intelligent aphid couldn't do much.

" "...there is no inherent chemical tendency for a series
of bases to line up in the orderly way required for life.""


Given all the chances it had, why not? If amino acids form so easily, why can't it happen?

"All that shows is that, with much DESIGN and INTELLEGENCE
someone created amino acids. This life did not arise by chance, as evolutionist say."


No, it means that amino acids can form naturally in nebulae. That's all. The only 'intelligent design' that seems to be present is that of the scientists who reproduced common natural phenomena.
