"Evolution has never been Observed"

When dealing with evolutionists you'll find a lot of their arguments are made on the basis of the fallacy of  equivocation - the illegitimate switching of a term or terms in the middle of an argument. (I detail this tactic in Games Evolutionists Play: The Name Game) Therefore you must be precise in your definitions. When creationists say "evolution has never been observed" we are referring to molecules-to-man evolution - or macro evolution.  Evolution from basic chemicals in the supposed primeval pond to man (or any other complex creature) - that type of evolution has in fact never been observed. When evolutionists claim "evolution has been observed" they are speaking of variation - or micro evolution - which no one denies.[3] For  the difference between Microevolution and Macroevolution see neo-evolutionist Dobzhansky's realization here. In passing, notice the equivocation on the word "evolution" and beware - it's a common tactic of evolutionists. On the claim about speciation, see the next meme.
