all of that would lead to a conclution that darwins theory is wrong, however, it is right to some extent there is micro evolution and new species can be formed, but new Genus' can't be formed. that would prove darwins "tree of life" false it would make it look somewhat simillar to an actual web of life. that started with many different organisms, and then all of those organisms might have changed a tiny bit, MAYBE forming new species, but nonetheless no new genus' or phylum or ect.
You have a LOT more reading before you can post in this thread. . . .

try reading the rest and then you can edit your post to correct yourself.


EDIT: And holy cow, I just re-read your post. . . have you even had a biology class yet?

What is the point of emotions? Do other animals have them? Are they just results of higher intelligence?

Higher intelligence as you say lets us name these feelings.

Those feelings in other animals give them an advantage socially and biologically over other groups and species. A group working together is better than a bunch of individuals working by themselves.

I was reading creationist propaganda, and I stumbled upon a point that made me stop and think for a second. They were stating that natural selection would in fact select for smaller craniums because they would have more trouble being birthed. The only thing I could think about is that the mother would adapt in various ways or evolve too increasing the size of the birth canal. Bipedal organism have enough trouble giving birth with the positioning of the hips. Could you clarify this for me?

Natural Selection would favor a smaller cranium, and it did. Our extinct cousins, the Neanderthal, had larger heads. If I recall, they were 10-15% larger. That is still a 100% crap point. Neanderthals survived for a long time. Neanderthal mothers had the ability to stretch their 'vaginas' during birth, just as human mothers do. There are actually women who don't become fully dialated during birth. It results in some nasty tearing, but it's not necessarily fatal. The arguement you read sounded like it came from someone who hadn't taken a middle-school sex-ed class.
The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.
