The only debate regarding evolution is how it happens, not whether it happens. Evolution is essential to understanding biology.

I think that wikipedia defines it pretty well (at least as I view it now), "Evolution is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations."

By successive, are you implying millions of years?

By successive, I'm implying successive generations. Whether you want to think of it on the scale of millions of years, hundreds, thousands, or billions, doesn't really matter. There will be noticeable changes between each generation.

And the noticeable change can be defined as evolution? So...what you are saying is that adaptation is evolution. If you say that, you can believe that if you want to. But evolution does imply an original organism, of which in a period of 6000 years could not happen. Just trying to understand your viewpoint buddy.

It's a good thing the Earth is a lot older than 6000 years. 

Edit: And yes, adaptation is one part of evolution. Evolution is a very, very broad term. It is pretty much any change between two generations of organisms.

The Earth is older than 6000 years old.

Even if you don't think the Earth is 4.5 billion years old which is the most commonly accepted figure in science, a mere 6000 is ridiculous and laughable.
