One of the arguments Creationists love to bring up is that evolution is a lie because we can’t see it happening in real time. We can try to explain that natural selection occurs over many generations and long time-scales, but they can’t handle that sort of nuance.
Thankfully, there are actually plenty of examples of evolution occurring within a lifetime. This PBS video explains one of them:
The science-deniers will say, “Sure, but the species didn’t change!” But this is exactly how species change. Imagine this kind of genetic change happening many, many times over — over the course of thousands of generations — and you’d be seeing a very different creature altogether from beginning to end.
Can someone send this to Ken Ham? Maybe he can finally educate himself on the matter.
