The debate on Darwin's theory of evolution
By: Christyl Rivers
Evolution is a theory. Also, gravity is a theory. One would not distrust gravity, however, as it does not threaten any notions of theocracy. Gravity is based on the theory of gravitational laws. We trust gravity, so much so, that we rarely even call it...
Assessing the future of human evolution
By: Christyl Rivers
Evolution is driven by environment. The environment “selects” those organisms which are best adapted to thrive in the environment, which too, is always ever-changing. At the present, the human species, is struggling to strive and thrive in an environment in which many of...

Although we refer to it today as “the theory of evolution,” the theory Charles Darwin proposed in 1857 associated with it was actually termed “the theory of variation by process of natural selection. In fact, Darwin never used the word “evolution&rdquo...
Lamarck's theory of evolution and its legacy
By: Joyce Ann Mallare - 541627
Charles Darwin was not the only one who formulated theories on evolution but also the French botanist and zoologist Jean Baptiste Lamarck. In the year 1802, Lamarck's thoughts on organic development move in place. The theory of Evolution by Lamarck was based on the idea...

The theory of evolution is more than just a theory about how humans came to be. Whether or not that part of the theory is correct does not have much of an influence on the underlying idea that life adapts. Throw in the concept of...
Do Organisms always Evolve into more Complex Forms
By: Robert Tesla
About one of the only things you can count on in this world is change. However change in organisms doesn't always occur in a positive direction. Evolution is another word for change, and we know for certain that dramatic evolutions have occurred in organisms over...

The simplest multicelled animals, the sponges, have no nervous system, but they don't need one. Their life style is also simple: sit and sway in the currents while filtering food from the water. They don't need to find food or avoid predators so they have...
Dinosaursbirds Crocodilians Alan Feduccia
By: Michael Reed - 612874
I do not agree that birds are dinosaurs because they do not have any common ancestor, as supported by many “evolutionary’ scientists, as well as some of the contemporary illustrations of some of meat-eating dinosaurs that are popular in many recent books. Although, they...

The evolution of horses is perhaps one of the most unusual evolution stories in nature. Horses seem to have gone in several different directions when it came to evolution. At times they even seemed to reverse or go backwards in their development, depending on the...
Flaws in evolutionary theory
By: GCBourque
One flaw in macro-evolution is the problem of irreducible complexity. Irreducible complexity means that systems cannot evolve which require the co-development of multiple parts which have no functional relationship or reason to exist prior to full development. In other words, if the parts are meaningless...
