I believe in "micro-evolution", I think even the most devout Christian believes that species adapt to their environment over time.
Where the theory of "macro-evolution" falls down is the belief that we all (and the amoeba and the duckbill platypus) came from the same puddle of goo somewhere.
IMHO, this belief takes much more faith than a belief in God.

I've read this view before and never understood why most don't understand the logical fallacy of it. Small changes over time lead to macro changes. A little change here and little change there... and after a 100 million years, you've got yourself a macro difference.
