What qualifies as evolution-- is it just any change? The concept of evolution from a biological perspective is that all living beings share the same ancestor. We share the same ancestor as a redwood tree, as do a dolphin with a giraffe, as do a pig with a cow, as do a chicken with a buffalo. If we want to visualize it, imagine a giant tree where we are all branches, and our ancestor is the trunk or even root of the tree. We may have branched apart-- but we all came from the same source.
Evolution is an intelligent plan. It is not random that we look the way we look now, that we have the genetic disposition that we do now. We are where we are in this evolutionary path because of previous generations, because of the environments that made it possible to be so, because we have adapted for it to be so. But just as important as understanding that our differences come from an intelligent plan is the acceptance that our source is one and the same. Perhaps more important, if we want not just our bodies but our souls to evolve that is, is to acknowledge that every living creature is our distant relative, and we are all one big family.
