Re: End of evolution??
My point is that the term 'species' is arbitrary. It doesn't matter how selective a system is, it doesn't change a cow into a whale.
It won't change a particular cow into a whale, and a cow will not give birth to a whale, in fact, that would be the refutation of evolution you're seeking.
What can happen is many different changes to many different groups of cows over millions of years such that a whale-like species finally develops. In fact, that's pretty close to what the fossil record shows happened.

The sun reveals itself, intelligent humans create information!
Intelligent humans interpret information.

Re: End of evolution??
Anything is possible in the land of fairytales.
Yes, like an invisible sky man creating an entire universe and people, then punishing all people for the choice of one, then flooding the world without leaving any evidence of such, then having a book written to tell people the truth, but making the observed data in the universe contradict most of the points in that book, but asking people to ignore that data because the book is the right way to truth.
Bones in the dirt indicate that organisms were quickly covered with mud before they could decompose, that's all, anything else is fantasy.
Yeah, and the bones are the information. We then interpret that information and come up with a theory that explains it to a very good degree, and has the added bonus of explaining lots of other phenomenon.
