|When I argue that “common descent” is well established, I mean that in general terms — that there is strong evidence for gradual organismal changes in natural history and a general pattern of coalescence as one goes farther back into natural history.|
|What evidence? We are all under the impression here that there is no evidence and have been asking for examples for years. And none has been forthcoming.|
Common descent is supported by a wide variety of evidence, including genomics. One of the easiest forms of evidence to understand is the succession of fossils showing the diversification of forms from common ancestors. Amateur geologists can individually verify the data. Many areas of the world have excellent geological formations exhibiting many common fossils.
It only requires looking.
You never step on the same tard twice—for it's not the same tard and you're not the same person.
