Hey Superman, know how I know there's no way you actually studied evolution for 6 years? Because you wrote this, "I don't believe in evolution as the way the universe came to exist however evolution does take place but tends to appear more in the form of adaptation." This one sentence is so packed with fail that I'm not even sure where to begin. But i'll try anyway:

Evolution is not a theory of the way the universe came to exist. That would be cosmology. Evolution is a theory of how living organisms adapt to their environments, I.E. mutations produce various traits in a population and the organisms with the traits best suited to survive and have offspring are more likely to .... wait for it ... survive and have offspring, so the next generation is better adapted than the previous one. Eventually if two populations are cut off from each other in different environments they end up evolving into different species.

You get the absolute BASICS of evolution so totally wrong -- and so totally similar to what people who don't know anything about evolution think -- that I think you're lying when you write that you studied evolution for 6 years, either that or you have a funny definition of "study" that doesn't include actually finding out what actual experts have to say about it.
