Becky,

I said that I believe there is evolution within species (not to the point of becoming another
species).
I just mean "change". And I'll use my husband's example-- the mighty Cockroach!
At some point the cockroach became a pest. So, man developed a chemical to kill it. All was
well, until one day when they were back! They had somehow grown used to the chemical.
Something 'changed'. But it was still a cockroach. And I think they've changed more than once to
survive.


If you look at this example backwards you only killed
roaches that responded to the toxin in a favorable manner (death).Others may have become sick for a while,
some may (while eating) say hey this stuff ain't bad!Some others may say this stuff stinks!I'm otta here.

A realitive example would be peanuts.Near instant death to some people who mistakenly eat them.The smell can make some gravely ill.Most consider them good food.
And yes I understand instant death peanut people are in
the minority,but the point remains.

Chris
