The animations are reminiscent of Monty Python graphics from the late 1960s/early 1970s.

It's mad that people still believe in "God" or one of the other 2000 "Gods" haha

Others had similar thoughts on animals changing over time prior to Charles Darwin including his own Grandfather Ersamus Darwin. But it remains hypothetical till you can come up with an explanation of how that can happen plus provide evidence for it. The explanation of how and the evidence for it is what Charles Darwin provided.

Quick fact : Charles Darwin was a theist meaning in simple he believed in God.

He didn't. He came up with the theory of "Natural Selection", which explains HOW evolution works. You don't even understand the concepts well enough to get your own title correct.
