Period 2 Introduction

Darwin could fly and turn lead into gold. NOT

(Gracie G.):
-During Darwin's research of evolution, many fundamentalist Christians were very upset that his theories were against the bible and also that human descent evolved from primates (monkeys).
-Only 37% of people in the United States agreed with his theory and allowing room for both God and Darwin, however most people felt strongly towards strictly what the bible says.
-"In his Origin of Species (1859) he provided a scientific explanation of how the diverse species of plants and animals have descended over time from common ancestors. His theory remains central to the foundations of modern biology. Moreover, by demonstrating how natural laws govern the world of living things, Darwin helped usher in a new era in the cultural and intellectual history of humankind"(Encyclopeadia Britannica Online School Edition).

-People say that evolution is only a theory, although overwhelming research proves it to be a legitimate process of life. Many other scientific proofs are also theories, which people blatantly believe in without second thought. This has proven for much dispute between the traditionalists and the evolutionary believers.
-There is an abundant amount of proof backing up the evolutionary theory. This proof can be found anywhere and around any corner. Museums, books, libraries, and much more have an outstanding amount of proof for Charles Darwin and his evolutionary theory.
-“ Today, many religious denominations accept that biological evolution has produced the diversity of living things over billions of years of Earth’s history. Many have issued statements observing that evolution and the tenets of their faiths are compatible. Scientists and theologians have written eloquently about their awe and wonder at the history of the universe and of life on this planet, explaining that they see no conflict between their faith in God and the evidence for evolution. Religious denominations that do not accept the occurrence of evolution tend to be those that believe in strictly literal interpretations of religious texts. ”

1Darwin and Lamarck both had the ideas that all species came from common ancestors, and both came up with the idea of natural selection.
2Chances of survival all depend on the shape, size, strength, arament, color, biochemistry and the behavior of the organism.
3When 1 species eventually grows and becomes two species darwin called it the splitting-and-specializing phenomenom the principal of divergence

1. Evolution like most things is just a theory like the THEORY of relativaity, however these "theories" have explantions that have been confirmed to by a degree.
2.Very important theory for human welfare, medical science and for our understanding of the world.
3.according to a telephone poll of 1000 no less than 45% of U.S. adults agree that "god created human beings pretty much in present form within th elast 10000 years or so".
