I think evolution is scientifically impossible. The simple fact is, DNA can not change itself.

ever here of mutation?

Actually, DNA can change itself. It has been shown in many, many lab tests that DNA can spontaneously mutate. Now, to keep our cells from developing these spontaneous mutations at important loci in our genetic code, enzyme complexes come along behind DNA polymerase (the enzyme that essentially xeroxes DNA) and 'proofreads' the reading frame, correcting any incorrect substitutions of purines and/or pyrimidines.

But it does. So you lose.

Well... technically, this dude (or dudette, or dud, as you like it) is RIGHT! DNA cannot change itself. It requires an external stimulus (say chemical or radiological effects, for example, or the enzymes mentioned by Cynthia) in order to change. Am I nit-picking here? Or maybe just plain wrong?

Yes, my irony meter just put out so much energy that it opened a portal in the space-time continuum and vanished into the dimension of the Time Fish.
I'm assuming here that JKD means Jeet Kune Do - which is all about 'evolution' of form.
Idiot. Jun Fan would be ashamed.

Ummm, yea, what they said.

Then what the fuck is cancer?!?

Except that DNA copying is nothing but a chemical process, and can go wrong for a thousand reasons.

dave whipple summed it up perfectly.

You said "I think".

Happens all the time.
Next lying idiot.

Hey, JKD? Yeah, there's this lady with six fingers on one hand who'd like to speak to you. And there's a line of cancer patients behind her. And a line of redheads. And blondes. And brunettes. And white people. And black people. And asians. And short people. And tall people. And blue-eyed people. And brown-eyed people. And green-eyed people. And violet-eyed people. And people with individually coloured eyes. And pretty much the entire population of the planet.

But those are not evolution! Those are adaption! And despite the fact that evolution is explicitly defined to help species adapt, they are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE because I SAY SO, so NYEH.

What exactly do you think Cancer is? How do you think Viruses work? Why are children different from their parents?

Then stand next to the Corium Melt (a.k.a. the 'Elephant's Foot') in Chernobyl for an hour.
Anyone exposed to the unimaginable amounts of radiation that thing chucks out for more than a few
will die hideously in a matter of days, as said radiation will cause their DNA to change:
