4 Minutes on Evolution

Lately I've been "debating" someone over evolution and creationism. Basically, I think evolution is true and is valid as the theory of gravity is true. He thinks everything came from Creator and evolution is a lie.

I've heard this many times before. I actually used to be on the other side of the fence. I read all the creationist books, I listened to the speeches, and I bought it hook, line, and sinker. Only when I actually started to question that framework and learn about evolution from those who wrote about it directly did I see how wrong I was and how right the theory of evolution is. But I really wish I had seen this video:

It's not that long - just over 4 minutes in length. But Miller makes it so clear why evolution is true. Even if you don't know all the terms it's plain as day that we evolved.

Sometimes I wonder why I spent any time discussing evolution with those who have slammed the door shut on reason and science. It's frustrating, but at the end of day, it's about getting people to understand what is true. I'm not asking people to give up their faith. I just want them to understand that evolution is not some evil conspiracy, laced with lies and deceipt. It's just the truth.
