as an environmentalscience teacher, how would you respone to someone who tells you that he or she does not believe in biological evolution because it is just a theory, and we shoul not worry about air pollution because through natural selection, the human species will develop lungs that can detoxify pollutants? Provide factual evidence from earth's history( miller, 2005, pp.87-90)

Theories of evolution have evidence to support them.

Religious beliefs are also theories, even though believers may accept them as fact.

Evolutionary changes typically take place over thousands of years. Of course, millions of people who do not evolve this lung change will not survive.

You need to carefully read the pages you indicated, so you can back up these statements.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
