So far since I've been studying on this here are the top evidences and arguments that I have found...

dna, fossil record, human/chimp/ape close resembelences and genetic makeup, junk dna, ring species, and the fact that the majority of scientists adhere to darwinian evolution. Plus the fact that lots of micro eventually equals macro evolution.
Do any of you all have anything to add that's not on this list? Thank you all for your time and responses.

Your thread starting skills clearly demonstrate unintelligent design.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

An evolutionary throw-back is one who manages to misspell a made-up word or one whose mum is cumlicious.

A pretty good evidence of macro-evolution is the appearance of a brand-new species which can only eat material that did not exist before 1935. Much more prevalent, but less flashy are the new antibiotic-resistant bugs. My current favorite evidences are the human eye and Darwin's Finches, both of which scream "Evolution" so loudly that even as religious a person as Darwin had to accept it.

With all of this evidence in hand, why do you want more? It would be nice to have more but do you think it is necessary?

Aw, c'mon, Sterny! Don't do the kid's homework for him! Wait till he finishes it himself (obviously very hard for him) and then feed it to the dog!

I don't think I gave him much that could be homework material. If we deduce the motivation for every question, we would have to stop answering the dumb theists altogether ("we would have to stop answering the dumb theists").

Do you, Kate, have any favorite evolution evidence that has not been listed above?

The human evolution fossil record. Love it. Love seeing all the various forms we went through before hitting us - makes me wonder where we'll go next.

One of my personal favorites is the evolution of the peppered moth caused by the increased pollution in England.
