Eleven days for bacteria to resist 1000 times lethal dose of antibiotics.

Amazing.

It is quite amazing.

Of course, and pulling a strawman here, 'its microevolution! NOT MACRO!'

Evolution is evolution is evolution.  The 'micro' and 'macro' terms are little more than generalizations to make it easier for us to understand a phenomena, but they don't constrain it (except in our own minds, which don't make the slightest difference to the reality of the phenomena).

Ahh, but a dog which only does micro-evolution forever will remain a dog! And certainly not change species!

Now what, atheist?

On the topic, Bacteria are some crazy fucking organisms.

Didn't we recently have one which evolved to eat plastics (Nylon?), which only occured thanks to evolution and that fact that humans invented Nylon.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be bleedn obvious.
