"Definition of evolution.. I see nothing about common ancestry."

A good, working definition of evolution, to be sure. Common ancestry doesn't follow from the definition, but it is evident nonetheless. The definition you supplied is neutral on that area because it`s entirely possible that something can evolve along a single line; it`s just not probable. So as not to exclude that improbable possibility, common ancestry isn`t directly noted. If you wish I could supply an alternate definition.

Going by logic, common ancestry sufficiently implies evolution, but evolution does not necessarily imply common ancestry.

Genesis 1

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Actually zira, it doesn't state what he used to create.. doesn`t specifically say nothing, something, or anything. You can take that as nothing, but you really don`t have anything to back up that claim... unless you are aware of a verse I am not?

In biology, evolution is the process of change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next. Genes that are passed on to an organism's offspring produce the inherited traits that are the basis of evolution. Mutations in genes can produce new or altered traits in individuals, resulting in the appearance of heritable differences between organisms. New traits may also arise from the transfer of genes between populations, as in migration, or between species, in horizontal gene transfer. In species that reproduce sexually, new combinations of genes are produced by genetic recombination, which can increase the variation in traits between organisms. Evolution occurs when these heritable differences become more common or rare in a population.

Definition of evolution.. I see nothing about common ancestry.
