Evolution Caught In The Act

An experiment which forced E. coli bacteria to adapt or perish showed that, in a pinch, they were capable of improvising a novel molecular tool to save their skins.

"The bacteria reached for a tool that they had, and made it do something it doesn't normally do," said James Bardwell, an associate professor of molecular, cellular and developmental biology at the University of Michigan. "We caught evolution in the act of making a big step."
But evolution is just a theory. Send this to your local school board, next time they decide they understand science better than, say, someone with an actual degree in a, say, biology.
