Re: The Diversity of Life, as we know it, from the evidence all around us.
The "best" evidence we have is that the theory of evolution works, and it is internally consistent; it accounts for all of the known facts, it is not contradicted by any significant facts, and it makes predictions leading to the discovery of previously unknown facts.

Exactly - what more can you want from a succssful theory? This is why I can never understand these bizarre accusations that evolution is not science.

Oh, and RAZD was spot on as well :)
