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...

By: Gwen Reed
This is a figurative idea, as evolution does not go backwards. To evolve is to change and the simple formula for evolution is: similarity to parent, dissimilarity to parent and adaptability to change. The first biggest force affecting the de-evolution of the human race is...

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...
