Evolution and South America

Charles Darwin, explained the diversity of life and developed the modern theory of revolution. Also, together with Alfred Russel Wallace,he proposed the principle of natural selection. He explained the natural selection as animals with variations better suited to their environment would have a better chance of survival and ability to breed. They would then pass… View Article

How Greek Mythology Influenced Christianity

After reading Malthus’ view, Darwin then noticed that if more organisms are produced than the ones that can survive, then they probably compete for resources. Darwin named this the struggle for existence. Darwin also knew that organisms had natural differences within their traits. He assumed that some of those are better suited to the environment….

Once upon a time there was a nuclear war that killed over 5billion people on earth.

Examination of the Role of Evolution Theory

In this paper I will briefly describe the evolutionary theory in general, and specifically as it relates to the study of criminology. I will examine the ways in which natural selection has shaped the processes which motivate human behavior, especially in terms of how competing for limited resources and ensuring that one’s genetic code is… View Article

Charles Darwin and the Theory of Evolution

In the 1850s, Charles Darwin proposed his theory of evolution. His theory proposed that species evolved gradually through subtle changes from one generation to the next by means of natural selection. By natural selection, the most desirable hereditary traits become more common from one generation to the next while the less desirable, weaker traits die… View Article

Early Homo

Science has explained human evolution and the existence of Homo sapiens uniquely from other hominas and greater apes. It is believed that Homo emerged from Australopithecus which existed 4. 2 Million years ago. They are believed to originate from Africa and build the scientific explanation of the origin of man. They had four main species… View Article

Evolution and Creation: The Debate

Evolution theory is chiefly concerned with what, how and when things began to happen, while the creationist theory is chiefly concerned with who began the process of evolution and why. One axiom that remains common in both theories is that both of them do not deny that a non material cause was responsible for creation… View Article

Evolution of white women in society

Experiment: John L. Fitzpatrick and his colleagues conducted an experiment regarding sperm competition through an examination of the sperm characteristics of 29 closely related cichlid species from Lake Tanganyika.

Sperm… View Article

Evolution and the fossil record

Evolution is the continual process by which one form of life changes, or evolves, into another form. Some religious groups deny that evolution exists, but most scientists accept it as fact. The theory of evolution suggests that all plants and animals descended from one or several kinds of simple organisms. It also explains why there… View Article

Evaluation of Evolutionary Theory of Altruism and the Role of Genes-a Modern View

Evolutionary theory holds that organisms with the strongest genes for survival and reproduction do, in fact, survive and reproduce most successfully. They thus multiply their genes most widely, spreading the advantageous genes through whole populations. Ceaseless repetitions of the process can gradually transform species into totally new ones. Such a world seems to have no… View Article

The Effects of Relative Fitness of Drosophila Melanogaster

Bibliography of David Buss

Evolutionary psychologists, such as David Buss, approach the social and natural sciences to examine psychological traits such as memory, perception, and language from a modern evolutionary perspective. Evolutionary psychologists also argue that much of human behavior is the output of psychological adaptations that have evolved to solve recurrent problems in human ancestral environments. I chose… View Article
