Actually there can be evolution after just one generation if the population isn't in equilibrium. Not major changes like gaining wings or losing limbs, but minor changes can occur that can accumulate to eventually lead to these landmark changes-- even in humans. A good example of evolution in humans that's happening now is antibiotic resistance.

I typed more of an explanation, but figured this isn't the thread for it and that most people probably aren't as interested in the sciencey jargon as I am, and restrained myself.

Don't try to tell me who you are; tell me who you love.

The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change. So that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger, but in wisdom, understanding and love.
