Creation-Evolution Headlines: Fruit Flies Not Evolving

A long-running experiment trying to get fruit flies to evolve has
failed. A research team forced selection on the flies to explore the
limits of natural selection. Only minor changes were detected after
600 generations. The research team was disappointed and surprised;
there was even less evolution in these sexual organisms than in
similar experiments with microbes, like bacteria and yeast. And all
this was under ideal lab conditions. Success is even less likely in
the wild.
