So if a human baby can't evolve into a monkey baby how in the hell did monkeys evolve into humans? Seeing that's the primary debating subject of evolution I know of.
And yes, that does happen with bacteria BUT that's when there are other bacteria, as you said with the human to monkey baby. There needs to be a different type of bacteria for it reproduce with, or around, to technically 'evolve'. Which at that point is just like a white person and a black person having children. (not meant to be racist AT ALL.) The child isn't going to be all black or all white.

Then it should be called the theory of adaption and not evolution. They ARE two different things. (I've also noticed that over your past several posts you really like to use the "synonymous") To adapt is when an animal, non-native to the area, moves into an area that is normally unsuitable for it. To evolve is when an animal, or organism to be more specific yet more generalized at the same time, changes over time. Not necessarily to survive, but to change morphologically or through the immune system.
When you adapt you are one species.
When you evolve you become your own species.
