Where is the evidence for macro evolution?

Intelligent design says only micro-evolution happens. Species just can't change into new species. Dinosaurs can change into dinosaurs but dinosaurs can't change into birds. Fish change to fish but can't change to mammals because thats macro-evolution. And macro-evolution has never been proved scientificaly.

Because theres no evidence for macro-evolution how do dawrinists explain it?

You know, there's no scientific evidence for the existence of a Deity either. But the same creationists who argue against evolution based on lack of evidence don't seem to see the lack of evidence of a Deity as an obstacle to their faith.

There's rather a lot of evidence for macro-evolution. But I am hereby resolving not to waste any more of my life explaining it to those who wish it didn't exist.

Let us remember that the humble chicken of today is thought to originate from dinosaurs, and is therefore a still-living legacy of this period of history and a proof that macro-evolution can occur. Think of that the next time you eat an egg!

Why do you say there's no scientific evidence for macro-evolution?  We know, in fact, that there is and one of the pieces of evidence is that dinosaurs did, in fact, change into birds.  So I'm not sure how you can claim that there is no evidence for macroevolution.
