Arguments for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution
By: Alicia M Prater PhD
Charles Darwin was a 19th century naturalist who has become the focal scientist for evolution. Though recent advances in science, particularly genetics, have found that he got a few things wrong, the great portion of what he concluded from his observations on the Galapagos Islands...
Arguments against Charles Darwin's theory of evolution
By: Alicia M Prater PhD
Though the theory of evolution is most often associated with the work of naturalist Charles Darwin, he is only one of the many scientists who have contributed to compiling what is now known about this most basic biological fact – that populations change over time...
How evolutionary models fit creationism
By: Timothy Buchanan
Evolution is a theory in search of evidence or for any real "science" to support it. For over 150 years, the proponents of evolution have claimed that the proof of whether evolution occurred on this planet would be contained in the fossil record. The fossil...
Understanding convergent evolution
By: Ashe Thurman
Evolution describes change over time. This could be the radical change seen between a single and multi-cellular organism to something as subtle as a change in the shape of a beak or the color of some plumage. Natural selection is the mechanism by which organic...
The evolution of sharks
By: Carol Wohlfeil
The shark, notorious ruler of the sea, began its reign nearly 400 million years ago when its evolutionary lineage separated from that of its ancestor, the prehistoric bony fish. Today, more than 300 species of sharks still inhabit the oceans, many of which have existed...
How feathers evolved
By: Janet Grischy
Feathers evolved before birds could fly. Birds evolved directly from the archosaurs, developing the internal temperature regulation that reptiles lack. Or possibly the avians evolved from dinosaurs that were direct descendants of the archosaurs, arising from theropods like Tyrannosaurus rex. Crocodilians like the American alligator...
Did Dinosaurs Evolve into Birds
By: Aftab Sabir
This question, and others like it, reflect the important and significant disagreements between proponents of evolution and those opposed. However, it is instructive to understand where both sides are coming from and why, ultimately, evolution must be rejected.Evolutionists adhere strongly to the philosophy that...

Evolution, as the name implies, is an ever-evolving field of palaeo-biology which has its roots in the work of pioneers like Charles Darwin (19th Century). The definition of 'evolve' is (like revolve), to instill the concept of recycling in nature. The difference is that revolution...
The evolution of the dog
By: Janet Farricelli CPDT-KA
Once upon a time, many eons ago, humans and canines led totally separate lives. The humans hunted using various hand made weapons, and the dogs, reunited in packs, used their powerful teeth. It all stayed this way until towards the end of the Ice...
By: Briar Miller
In September 2003, Randall Miller, a paleontologist from the New Brunswick Museum, found the oldest intact shark fossil ever, taking us back 410 million years. This example of Doliodus problematicus is only 9 inches long but shares the essential shark characteristics we know and love...
