Evolution is actually quite easy to understand once one gets over this one-species-into-another thing. Animal species do not evolve into other species.
Evolution as per the World Book Dictionary and 3 science book definitions are indeed the very same concept of Darwin's macroevolution theory which I call Darwinism Check history....the term "evolution" has since the days of Darwin and Wallace, been used in the scientific field to designate a natural, biological process through which some speck of inorganic matter after eons of time, transmuted into a simple celled organism, then from that into a more complex organism, from which passing from one species to another, all plant, animal and human life came about. They claimed the process or mechanism for Darwin's macroevolution was by "Natural Selection" and "Survival of the Fittest".
As far as your assertion that animal species do not evolve into other species, Here it is from Charles Darwin himself......From his book "The Descent of Man" 2nd ed. Collier and Son. 1905. Darwin refutes your statement.
"In forming a judgment on this head with reference to man, we must glance at the classification of the Simiadae. This family is divided by almost all naturalists into the Catarrhine group, or Old World monkeys....and into the Platyrhine group or New World monkeys. .....Now, man unquestionably belongs in his dentitiion, in the structure of his nostrils, and some other respects, to the Catarrhine or Old World division.
.....There can, consequently, harldy be a doubt that man is an offshoot from the Old World Simian stem; and that, under a genealogical point of view, he must be classified with the Catarrhine division. Vol.1, pg. 205.
"The early progenitors of man must have been once covered with hair, both sexes having beards; their ears were probably pointed and capable of movement; and their bodies were provided with a tail, having the proper muscles....The foot was then prehensile, judging from the great toe in the foetus; and our progeniters no doubt, were arboreal in their habits, and frequented some warm forest-clad land." pg. 214.
"The Simiadae then branched off into two great stems, the New World and the Old World monkeys; and from the latter, at a remote period, Man, the wonder and glory of the universe proceeded." pg. 220.
"Man, as I have attempted to show, is certainly descended from some ape-like creature." pg. 759.
"The main conclusion arrived at this work, namely that man is descended from some lowly organized form, will I regret to think, be highly distasteful to many. ...For my own part, I would as soon be descended from that heroic little monkey who braved his dreaded enemy in order to save the life of his keeper, or from that old baboon, who descending from the mountains, carried away in triumpth his young comrade from a crowd of astonished dogs----as from a savage who delights to torture his enemies, offers up bloody sacrifices...." pg. 796.
Macroevolution is this fake evolution you've been writing about....it's pseudo-science masquerading as true science.
