      Hi Jack – I don’t think the word believe is appropriate for a scientific theory.

      I do accept the theory of evolution, which is backed by a large body of scientific fact, even though it is hard to observe with the naked eye (as are quite a few things in science). If you want to observe it in your lifetime it’d be best to look at organisms that breed really fast and go through multiple generations very quickly, bacteria being a prime example, with issues like antibiotic resistance simply being a direct consequence of evolution.
