Things Change – But That’s Not Evolution

A mural in the town of Bowen, Queensland, Australia, depicts old airplanes.

Evolution is often (incorrectly) defined as change. However, even things that are definitely designed tend to change. Take airplanes, for instance, that a century ago were very much different from what they are now.

In other words, planes have been designed. They have not evolved via Darwinian processes.
