Charles Darwin is commonly recognized as the greatest biologist of all history. The theory that made Charles Darwin famous was his theory of Evolution. Darwin, was the first at the time to come up with a theory that explained how all living species are related to each other because we have all evolved from a common ancestor. However, his theory of evolution was controversial to many Creationist which believed that God was the creator of every single species. In Darwin’s, Origin of the Species, he based his theory of Evolution heavily on Variation, and Natural Selection among each species. Darwin made a wise decision to explain the theory of Evolution based on Natural Selection, and Variation because it does a perfect job to explain how species …show more content…
All the modern scientific discoveries can only back up Darwin’s theory of evolution. It is hard to compare Darwin’s theory of evolution to other sciences such as math because math has proofs that allows their theories to be proven accurate. However, Darwin’s theory has no defined rules because it is based on his observations, and examples that made the theory of evolution credible to other sciences. Darwin’s approach to his theory of evolution showed that scientific proofs are not needed to be considered science because science is constantly changing finding new discoveries day by …show more content…
This theory simply states that species have “traits that better enable them to adapt to specific environmental pressures, as predators, changes in climate, or competition for food or mates, will tend to survive and reproduce.”(Dictionary) A good example of the theory of Natural Selection is different color beetles such as green and brown beetles. The different color variations in each beetle can be crucial for survival in case of a predator. The beetle that survives would be able to reproduce and pass on its advantageous trait to its offspring. The ones with out the advantageous trait would eventually die off due to the fact that it would not survive in the wild. These minor changes to the traits of a species is what helps the species be more competitive in the environment to be able to reproduce. The slight changes that occurred over time shows how complex organs were first created. Richard Dawkins, famous evolutionary biologist, and Darwin have discussed the formation of the eye occurs by “slight variation”(890) that happened during time. Each slight change in their gene is how complex organs appeared as each slight variation only helped the species adapt in their environment. Natural selection is still a theory used today in modern science because competition between two species still happen to see who gets to
