Cetaceans and Evolution

There are many forms of cetacean life living in the worlds waters. How an why they came into existence is uncertain, but there have been many theories. Some say that dolphins are aquatic forms of goats, and others believe they evolved just like everything else, from a single cell, and not from an actual multi-cellular being. Because most cetaceans have some vestigial structures such as under-developed os coxae, the former of these two theories remains prevalent in most researchers minds. The theory that cetaceans evolved from a goat-like being is…

Evolution – Explanatory Theories II

Theories explaining biological evolution have been bandied about since the ancient Greeks, but it was not until the Enlightment of the 18th century that widespread acceptance and development of this theory emerged. In the mid 19th century english naturalist Charles Darwin – who has been called the father of evolution – conceived of the most comprehensive findings about organic evolution ever. Today many of his principles still entail modern interpretation of evolution. I’ve assessed and interpreted the basis of Darwin’s theories on evolution, incorporating a number of other factors concerning…

Creation or Evolution

In a coherent world like ours people are questioning their religion and not knowing whether to believe in creation by God or evolution, Through out my research I have found four possible answers to this question to incorporate both theories . Which prove neither wrong and belief in both at the same time One approach would be to believe that when God when created the trees in 4004 BCE, he would have formed them complete with growth rings. So too with other plants, animals and minerals. Everything in the world…

Evolution – Fact Or Fiction?

In 1859, Charles Darwin published his book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, which proposed the theory of evolution. This book, along with others that followed, began the long debated dispute between evolutionist and creationist. Were we created by a supernatural Supreme Being, or did our creation occur purely by chance? First, lets look at the two conflicting theories. Common usage of the term evolution is that living things in our world have come into existence through unguided naturalistic processes beginning from a primeval mass of…

Charles Darwin And The Theory Of Evolution

It is commonly thought today that the theory of evolution originated from Darwin in the nineteenth century. However, the idea that species mutate over time has been around for a long time in one form or another. Therefore, by Darwin’s time the idea that species change from one type into another was by no means new, but was rejected by most because the proponents of evolution could not come up with a satisfactory mechanism that would explain this change. The most influential evolutionary theories prior to Darwin were those of…

Creation vs Evolution

In society, there are many diverse issues that raise intense controversy. An ongoing conflict has been between the science world and the religious society. This topic happens to be the theory of creation, versus the theory of evolution. Naturally the science world is backing evolution, while the religious community is strongly supporting creationism. Since neither side has conclusive evidence to support their view, this will be an ongoing struggle between church and science. Though neither side has evidence proving their position to be completely true, both sides have many persuasive…

The Principle Events in the Evolution of the Earth’s Atmosphere

The literal translation of the word atmosphere is “sphere of vapors”. The Earth’s atmosphere is a protective sphere of vapors, or air that surrounds the Earth and provides it with a layer of insulation from the harmful rays of the sun. It is a vital part of the Earth, and has changed dramatically since the beginning of time. The earth’s atmosphere has gradually changed since the Earth’s birth approximately 4. 6 million years ago. In the beginning, the Earth’s composition was very different that how it exists today. A long…
