A new poll conducted by Ipsos surveyed twenty-four countries and found that 41% of respondents identified themselves as "evolutionists" and 28% as "creationists," with 31% indicating that they "simply don 't know what to believe.” In today’s world, evolution is highly regarded as the way of thinking by individuals, due to the logic presented through many theories and fragmented evidence. Of these, darwinism and neo-darwinism are two major theories in which evolutionists view the beginning of time and how earth has evolved since.
Darwinists core belief is that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor. Whereas neo-darwinism is the modern theory of the latest developments in biology, it explains the reasons for variations among species and explores the transmission of characteristics from parent to offspring through the process of genetic transfer.
Today I have chosen to further investigate the areas of natural selection and comparative anatomy evolution. I will look at, and further analyse these topics in depth, focusing on arguments both for and against each topic.
Comparative anatomy dates all the way back to the early 16th century where the idea of this type of science was first brought about by Pierre Belon, who was a french naturalist at the time. He was one of the first to compare the bone and skeletal structure to that of birds with humans. It was this research that ultimately led to what later became comparative anatomy. Around the same time, many…
