Two cars with equal mass and speed going opposite directions will impact with the same force as one of them would with a massive stationary object. However if one of the cars was not moving the force of the impact would be about half

There are almost innumerable examples but bacterial resistance to antibiotics is one that particularly affects us in the here and now.

If they're both going the same speed, then it will be double because it's the force of the two speeds added together. But the impact is additive, not multiplicative. So "double" won't be true if the cars are going at different speeds.

That genes are inherited through common descent, rather than fly through the air from one species to another? I'd guess that many people would cite the genetic evidence. However, I quite like the anatomical evidence. That so much biology makes no sense without evolutionary history. For example, the recurrent laryngeal nerve, particularly in the giraffe. Makes no sense whatsoever without understanding the evolutionary history.

…and if one the cars is going in reverse the force of impact will be reduced.
