Let's go back in time. To Africa, to the beginning of the family of humans- Hominidae or the hominids. About 5-10 million years ago the split occurred between the apes and the hominids. Fossils discovered in Chad are dated at 6-7 million years old and...
Is the Human Race Evolving or Devolving
By: David Aaron White
The human race is devolving, even if the majority of the population would like to think that we are indeed making progress along the evolutionary time line. That's not to say that we aren't making progress our technology is becoming more advanced at an almost...

Fossils are an important piece of proving the theory of evolution because they present the physical proof of its' existence. By discovering fossil evidence of a creature from varying ages, reference points are present that allow us to see the physical transformation that has occurred...

At a time when science was still the realm of gentleman and Aristotle was still revered as the greatest of all scientists, there lived a man named Lamarck (not his real name, but the one under which he published) who in many ways was a...

Predators are a strong selective force in nature. Because natural selection favors organisms that are best at surviving and reproducing in a given environment, the genes of prey organisms that can most efficiently escape predation will be favored in subsequent generations.There is a saying...

The fossil record is crucial for those who uphold the theory of Evolution because it is the only option open to modern man in discovering the structure of life dating back to when those fossils were live creatures. Living animals today offer no evidence to...

Paleontologists have been unearthing fossils for around 150 years since the days of pioneer Joachim Barrande who was meticulous in his chosen science. Since then, over one hundred million fossils have been cataloged around the world with only very few that are in some form...

Without genetic variation, there could be no evolution. Imagine that all individuals in a species had the exact same set of genes. Their offspring would all be the same, and would all have an equal chance of survival. It's the variations in genes, which are...

In the 1800s, several factors led to critical thinking and the idea of evolution as opposed to Gods creation. These included geological expeditions, discovery of the fossil record and the epic voyage of Charles Darwin, writer of the "Origin of the Species" in 1895 and...

My prediction for the future regarding human evolution? Less men! Yeah, you heard right. Less men. Or to be more accurate, perhaps I could say less power for men.Now I bet I know what you're thinking by reading a statement like that. That I'm...
