Evolving Teeth for Eating Grass?

Sorting through the "mountains of evidence" for fish-to-fool evolution will likely make you puzzle and puzzle 'til your puzzler is sore. So much of what is considered evidence for the "fact" of evolution is a prairie schooner-full of Just-So Stories, but precious little in the way of actual science. But the keepers of the Sacred Darwinian Archives™ will take something out, smile, shine it up for you, and expect you to feel blessed for being able to view it. One of the treasures is the tale of how animal teeth evolved because the grass changed. Yep, molars got bigger.

The idea that animals evolved teeth to eat grass does not work

"Un momento, por favour! Isn't something evolving for a purpose an example of teleology?"

I reckon so. Also, because of changing conditions that allegedly caused evolution, it smacks of being Lamarckian. To me, anyway. Grasslands changed, so teeth changed. Except that the evidence does not only refute that idea, but evolutionists use circular reasoning to support it. But, like the Big Bang, the teeth evolving to meet the needs presented by grass conjecture is not rejected, but receiving repairs and kept in service. By the way, no mechanism is offered to explain the necessary aspect of adding new genetic material. Also, it's built on circular reasoning as well. The whole thing is a mess of meadow muffins. Sure does take a lot of work to avoid the simple truth that life was created and did not evolve, doesn't it?
It is a classic tale of evolutionary biology that tall or high-crowned molars (hypsodonty) in mammals only evolved when grasslands evolved.
This supposedly took place during the Cenozoic when the cooling climate caused forests to change into extensive grasslands. It was thought the high-crowned molars developed as a result of wear from eating grass containing phytoliths (silica-rich granules).

Worn-out teeth supposedly caused the mammals to develop taller, longer-lasting teeth. New evolutionary research calls into question this classic tale.
