Evolution is the idea that the nature of a species can change irreversibly (evolve) over time – a fact which can be directly observed over human timescales, especially in lower life-forms such as bacteria.
We probabaly need to check our terms here. Does evolution include speciation, or is that a separate concept? Has speciation been observed in human timescales? Does any form of anti-Darwinism actually claim that there isn't evolutionary change within a species over time? -W.
