Like I said, life has been

Like I said, life has been around a LONG LONG time. 2000 years is only .00000000377% (or 1/270,000th) of the time since the Cambrian explosion about 540 million years ago, and unicellular life has been around FAR longer then that.

Imagine 270,000 different permutations of the wolf into poodle scenario. 2000 years to go from wolf into a teacup poodle... then just one more permutation a teacup poodle into a mouse type dog etc etc over 270,000 times.

each time an almost uncountable amount of different environmental conditions which could speed up or slow down the process.

It HAS BEEN PROVEN in even such a short time period. you can irrefutably test through DNA that you are different then your parents and that you parents are different the their parents and so on. factor in a fast breeding organism like a fruit fly that you selectively breed and you could RADICALLY change it so much that it is a new species within a few decades.

dna test and a refined evolutionary measurement has only been around for about 30 years and just look at what has been done. Just give it another 50 years and hopefully this ridiculous religious argument will be dead, just like the terracentric solar system and flat earth arguments of eons past.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
