Is the Human Race Evolving or Devolving
By: Rhonda Coyle
Several months back I had a debate with an atheist on what we tend to categorize as "supernatural" as opposed to what is "natural". This debate followed along the path of evolution. Now I am no scientist, nor do I wish to be; but, I...

The anxiety drenched in the question of whether mankind is evolving or devolving is based on a misconception of the word "evolution". Evolution, as many perceive it, is based on the suggestion that man is superior to other life forms that share this planet. We...

Evolution as we understand it is based on Darwin's notion of "survival of the fittest". Variation creates new characteristics, and if these characteristics are favourable they allow the bearer a greater chance of surviving or procreating. If they are detrimental, the individual falls victim to...
