No proof of evolution.
So there is no proof of evolution, how about looking at dogs. Although dogs may look different they really are all the same genetically. Dogs come in all shapes and sizes from the the heaviest dog, the St. Bernard to the lightest dog, the Chihuhua. It is hard to believe that all these different breeds are the same species. Yet DNA tests reveals that all dogs, no matter what color their fur, what their personality is like, what size they are, or how long their ears are have a common ancestor. Every single dog you see has descended from the grey wolf. Additional DNA studies also show that 95% of a modern dogs genes match to 3 original female dogs. With all this similarity in gene tracing, it seems implausible that dogs could look so different from each other. This is exactly what makes them the most varied land animal on earth, than any other species that exists. There are no other beings that has a big a difference in body size as those four footed friends known scientifically as canis familiaris. Dogs and wolves are cousins. Dogs descended from wolves about 15,000 years ago. All wolves look alike, yet the domestic dog comes in so many shapes and sizes. There are over 150 recognized breeds by the American Kennel Club (AKC), over 400 breeds worldwide, and uncounted types of mixed breeds, plus the new hybrid purebred breeds, like pugles (beagles and pugs), or the golden doodle (golden retriever and standard poodle). Everytime different breeds reproduce, a different resulting dog may emerge. In a gene study, purebred dogs tend to share more DNA within the breed. Mixed breeds showed much more variation. In dogs DNA there are about 6 or 7 areas in the genomes (the entire DNA) that reflect 80% of the differences in size between the dog breeds. Humans are much more complex. Dogs have these large chunks of genetic regions that determine what genes are inherited. Human beings have as much as thousands of genetic variables. Dogs were bred for specific purposes and needs of people. Some people needed dogs to help with hunting, or protection, or herding, or rodent eradication, or were used as signs of wealth. The variety of traits people looked for in a dog, when they bred them, led to faster than normal evolutionary changes in the canine species. The result of selective breeding is a species that shows changes that are bigger and more varied than would have happened with natural selection. It is believed that selective dog breeding began about 5,000 years ago to help people and allow their daily chores to be easier. This helped to make dogs the companion of man. Dogs would then benefit from advances humans would make over the centuries and would also suffer detriments from inbreeding due to high demands of certain breeds. There are about 8 million dogs in the UK. The population of dogs as pets in the U.S. is about 50 million plus the wild dogs, makes canines a very successful reproductive species. In comparison, the wolves, the dogs ancestors number approximately 150,000. Dogs desire to adapt themselves to mans lifestyle and mans desire to take care of these animals, and breed them for their specific traits, has created easier breeding possibilities for dogs, than if they were left to fend for themselves in the wild. Intensive breeding over 500 years has led to the variety of todays dogs. If you turn around and say this is all down to God, blah blah blah, shut up. This is down to man and forced evolution.
