The Influence Of Evolution

Improved Essays
Monkeys, birds, and fish have similarities to humans by how their skeleton is built, but that doesn’t mean they are our ancestors. Darwin needed evolution as a reason to live, so he created something that he believed was real. Evolution has been something that nonreligious people have made up to follow, but there isn’t actual written proof that it ever happened. Some scientists have disproved it; the Bible is completely against it and in mythology it links back to the Bible.

There are so many useful ways to use science. It helps people invent day-to-day objects that can change the world, but it isn’t only used for inventing objects. Atheists don’t have a religion to follow so they use science as their religion. Charles Darwin, the inventor of evolution, was once a believer in Christianity. Darwin had a daughter who he deeply loved, but sadly she died at the age of ten. “The little belief that he had left of Christianity was lost” (Glick 1). Since Darwin needed something to believe in, he made his own belief known as evolution. Darwin started an experiment with pigeons and plants. The experiment was to take them

In mythology it doesn’t talk about how a lizard grew into a dinosaur or how humans evolved from apes. There are other stories in mythology, which vaguely state that evolution is real. Have you ever thought to yourself: if evolution were real, then wouldn’t it still be happening? As it was stated before people during the time period of Adam and Eve were massive and since that time people have gotten fatter, shorter, and more stupid. Plants and animals are changing by genetic modification, which is clearly not evolution. Evolutionists say God isn’t real and the world started by and explosion in the universe. If the explosion were real how would there of been any form of species. Even if the species that were on earth started off being a little tiny embryo. How did they get

    Unlike evolutionists, creationists do not believe the earth is billions of years old. Creationists believe the earth is between 6,000 and 10,000 years old; therefore, life only recently came into being (Wiker, 2005). This fact demonstrates that there is no possible way for a species to evolve into a new species and for apes to evolve into man. All of these conjectures prove that there is solid support for…

    Students would be presented arguments in favor of intelligent design in the universe, but in scientific rather than religious language. (Phy-Olsen 16) With this view on evolution it is less likely to offend many people yet still gives other possibilities to the creation story. Intelligent design states that the different processes involved in living organisms are so complex and rely greatly on simultaneous actions, therefore the likelihood of those happening solely on their own is impossible (Institute of Medicine 40). “Because nobody was present at Creation, its events are impossible to verify […]” (Phy-Olsen 62). We may never truly know how we were created or why we evolved into the beings that we are today, but the kids of this world should be introduced to all possibilities of the evolution story.…

    Creation is the process of bringing something into existence, however, evolution is a change overtime and deals with natural selection. Creation is a term that can used in many aspects, but evolution is normally used scientifically or historically. So what is most presumed, creation or evolution? Since many people believe that everything has to have a scientific explanation, evolution would win in this case by those believers. However, one may believe in creation because of the book of Genesis, which is the first…

    If nothing new is allowed to arise, then how will there ever be growth? Why cannot we question and challenge those who have seized control and are dictating just what can and cannot be asked and said? If science was in the same state that it is now, then 160 years ago when Darwin presented his ideas (if they were not the foundation of science belief now) he never would have even been given the chance to because it challenged the status quo. I simply believe that if science is to remain a wholesome place for thinking, for advancements, and for discoveries, then the same courtesy that was extended to the scientists of the past should continue on and be passed on to the scientists of today: the freedom to question. To take it even one step further: to display the evidence for what it is and not for what we hoped it would be to support our theories.…

    In the words of Richard Dawkins, “Evolution is almost universally accepted by those who understand it, almost universally rejected by those who don’t”. For many generations, people have questioned the origin of the human species and how we came about. Until the 19th century, people had no scientific clue as to how humans came to be the walking, talking, intelligent species we are today. With the introduction of evolutionary theory by Charles Darwin, we finally have an idea of how we evolved over many generations to become the species we are. Some people in today’s society are opposed to the theory, mainly being misinformed on what it actually means.…

    Additionally his third argument outshines the beliefs of creationist over the evolutionist because it questions that if God created human species long time ago, then why God added more modern features in a chronological sequence such as reducing face, teeth, and etc. to humans. I felt the argument was needed to question the creationist that, “Did he create to mimic evolution and test our faith thereby?” (Gould, 256). In his last argument, he not only proves the evidence of evolution in an efficient way, by pointing out fossil records and evolved features, but also by questioning the logic to why God would add more revolutionary features to organisms over the…

    We humans are inquisitive by nature, it is in fact what sets us apart from other animals on this planet. Since our exodus from the African continent we have always wanted to know what was beyond that hill, our desire to learn as much as possible has allowed us to make advancements in technology and create civilizations. But this desire to learn had also extended to the machinations of nature, and in response we created religions as an explanation to the creation of the universe. Religion was useful for many centuries as our understanding of nature was limited to what we saw, but our sight is very limited and cannot fully comprehend the scale of the universe. 2,000 years ago we believed that the Earth was the center and all the stars and planets…

    As much as we credit Darwin for the theory of evolution, he in fact was not the first naturalist to propose this idea that species somehow change over a period of time into new species with different characteristics. Jean Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck was both a naturalist and a botanist with extreme expertise in invertebrates. Before 1800 Lamarck believed that the idea of evolution was impossible. The developing fossil record and concept behind extinction most likely led him to convert from essentialism to an evolutionist. Before 1800 Lamarck believed that the idea of evolution was impossible.…

    Proponents of the idea say that cloning could lead to more disease resistant plants, but, this very creation could cause lack of DNA diversity. So, cloning should not be allowed because because people are still very conflicted on the subject, also the cost of cloning is too extreme and, it would lack in DNA diversity. First of all, cloning is still very new to the world. Although cloning has been around since Dolly the Sheep, the whole world is still conflicted on the subject. Some feel that the cloning of embryos, is morally repugnant and may feel that the idea of cloning humans is “playing God” according to “What are the Pros and Cons of Cloning?” So, if too many people are conflicted based on a moral stance, it will create too much turmoil in the science community.…
