How words are defined control how we think about a subject,
such as evolution. If evolution is defined as "change
over time," then we look at the world and readily see
things changing over time. Thus we see that reality matches
the definition, and thus evolution must be true.
However, is "change over time" an appropriate
definition of evolution?
No, it is not. What is actually meant by "evolution"
involves more than just change over time.
