But first you gotta agree to explain to me how antibodic resistance is going to cause bacteria to eventually sprout legs or wings, or two working eyeballs, etc. Deal?

Funny things happen behind the Unseen University.

Actually I think I can explain that, but it might take two billion years or so. So how about you agree to stop spouting god-bothering bullshit in the meantime?

There is no path in Evolution that all species take, it's just random mutation and natural selection; what works will stay, what doesn't work will disappear. Some things that neither works nor don't work will stay too, and some of them will start to work later, or start to not work and kill off that branch.

No species just sprouted two working eyeballs, stupid. First it was just photo-sensitive cells, then they lumped together to be photo-sensitive lumps of cells, and so on and so forth.

"Antibodic"?
Antibiotic resistance might cause bacteria to kill off the human species.
The bacterium is already fairly prosperous, evolutionary-wise, it doesn't need legs or eyeballs.

Textbook example of "Moving the goalposts"

Quote from Wikipedia:

"Moving the goalposts, also known as raising the bar, is an informal logically fallacious argument in which evidence presented in response to a specific claim is dismissed and some other (often greater) evidence is demanded."

They don't need to grow eyes. Most Bacteria are smaller than the light wavelength, or at least small enough that any visual information would be useless to them.

And They are also doing a damn fine job at surviving just the way they are. Evolution only pushes a species to change if such change is needed to stay alive. We were slow, dumb, and clumsy. But some of us were smarter and faster then the rest, and they could make tools. They stayed alive longer than the rest, and thus were more successful at raising young. After several hundred generations, all humans had these traits...

In theory. For some reason, your ancestors survived the lion attacks by Screeching Babble-shit at it. You are very good at it. But please keep it to yourself. We are not lions, and your kind will die out soon enough :D
