Evolution And Extinction

Evolution describes the progressive stages by which organisms existing today have emerged through processes of specialization, adaption and natural selection, from their pre-existing ancestors; it is the significant change in the traits of a population over several generations. On the other hand, extinction of a species of organism is the total disappearance of such forms… View Article

“The Origin of Species” Response

In “The Origin of Species”, Charles Darwin painstakingly explores the different character traits exhibited among species. He looks at natural selection as a way of explaining extinction and adaptation and tries to prove evolution as the main theory of human origin. He states, “this whole volume is one long argument” (362), and that is exactly… View Article

A Rebuttal to Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

If there’s one thing that would make the highly religious person infuriated, that one thing would probably be the Theory of Evolution by Charles Darwin. Quite a rugged assumption but a little true nonetheless.             Religion, as a social institution, derives much of its foundations on several bearings; the most important being the Theory of… View Article

Qualifying Fish Evolution: The Classic Creationism or the Tetrapod Link?

I Introduction             Ichtyology as a branch of science that deals primarily with the study of fishes (“aquatic vertebrates”) and an important concept that is associated with the study is evolutionary history or the careful dissection of its past evolutionary forms and related families.             Fishes are non-tetrapod chordates that are aquatic-dwellers whose general physiological… View Article

Creationism vs Evolutionism

From the beginning of time there has been a controversy about how the world was created. At this time we can agree that there can only be one of two ways that the world could have been created, and that is scientifically or non scientifically. While in the world today mostly everything is being created… View Article

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….

AIM To prove that both allele and genotype frequencies in a population would not remain constant if natural selection occurs. Natural selection is the process whereby organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring. INTRODUCTION Natural… View Article

Divergent Evolution

Once upon a time there was a nuclear war that killed over 5billion people on earth. However because of the war the human race went through Divergent evolution , which is when two or more species live in different habitats but come from the same ancestral group. Therefore the human race was split into to… View Article

Evolution Theory

Darwin spent five years exploring the world. Darwin traveled to many places mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. As he traveled from place to place, Darwin was surprised, by the similarities between the species. He wrote in his journal of the Galapagos Islands, “…there is even a difference between the inhabitants of the different islands; yet… View Article

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

During the colonial chronology of the United States, many a historian pictured women as better situated than their more recent contemporaries (Mary Beth Norton, 1984). The value of women in the colonies was premised on the survival mode of the colonists during that time (Norton, 1984). To survive, both male and female were expected to… View Article

Evolution in Skyscraper’s Design

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
