Evolution is the gradual development of something. Yet, no scientist can explain the need for variety. According to evolution, life adapts to its surroundings, and that is why fish breathe through gills and giraffes have long necks. However, how does evolution explain beauty? You cannot see a portrait painted by Picasso and say, "Oh, that beautiful work of art evolved over time and came from a single cell organism". Evolution cannot explain creativity. I will be so bold as to say that creativity came from a Creator. What are your thoughts?

It takes creativity to make that beautiful turtle in the picture. It takes creativity to make beautiful flowers. Speaking of apples. Why was there a need for oranges? Wasn't the apple good enough? Isn't it funny that apples are edible?
Creativity has NOTHING to do with science! Scientists are NOT creative, they are methodical and follow strict guidelines. What are you trying to prove here? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Evolution seems to be practical. What is practical about the turtle's shell having a design imprinted on it? What is practical about so many varying types of flowers?
If i were teaching a class on evolution with you in it, i could answer your questions, but not in 250 characters. Try reading Dawkins, or watching Cosmos by Neil deGrasse Tyson.
I am very familiar with Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Lawrence Krauss, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, etc.
