The fourteenth installment of my original series, "Discovering Religion". In this episode I discuss the evidence for microevolution (genetic variations within a species) and macroevolution (the accumulation of genetic variations leading to speciation).

Creationists often claim microevolution cannot be extrapolated over time, resulting macroevolution -- and because we have never directly witnessed macroevolution it therefore must not occur. I refute these claims as well as sum up my argument on the historical occurrence of evolution.

In the next few installments I will begin to shift my focus from scientific topics to more social, moral, and ethical conflicts inherent to a literalistic belief in religious mythologies.
