This is a tautology: scientists who believe in evolution have increased
confidence in evolution. By "evolution" we mean life changing from
simple to complex via natural process, and I am aware of no observation
or experiment that has scientifically demonstrated that ascension.
Induced mutations in fruit flies produce only malformed fruit flies - no
improvements. Could you be a little more specific about the exact
observations and experiments which daily prove evolution?
