Im am not doubting that evolution is a long and slow process but the theory of Punctuated Equilibrium is a much better theory then Natural Selection to explain evolutionary change. I'll breifly tell you what it is.

Punctuated Equilibrium - Species do in fact tend to remain stable for long periods of time and then to change relatively abruptly-or rather, to be replaced by newer and more successful forms.

These "Punctuations" can be caused by mainly three things:
regulatory gene change, neoteny, and the Cometary Impact theory.

READ GOULD for more info!!!!

Crotalus75, I have also heard those same theories that state homo sapiens neanderthalis were able to interbreed with Homo sapiens sapiens.

Later on ill just post my essay on the thread, it should give you a good idea of what Punctuated Equilibium is all about.
