Scientific explanations are evaluated using evidence from the natural world. By performing experiments, science is a process that uses data and evidence to explain the evolutionary process. There is Constancy and Change in Natural Systems that can be, understood by recognizing patterns and explained through mathematics. As we discussed in class “Science can be considered a form of conceptual evolution where natural selection insures the survival of the fittest ideas”. Those 3 ingredients are heritability, variation and differential success. In order for selection to occur three main criteria’s are necessary in order for a specie to prosper and survive. Without these ingredients a species will have little to no chance of surviving in any environment.
Science is a way of thinking about & investigating the world, by searching for patterns and answers to predict future events. For that reason it can be considered an evolutionary process and a form of conceptual evolution where natural selection insures the survival of the fittest ideas. Science is always testable in order to see if it is correct, by putting the theory through a series of test. So unless the theory cannot be proven through an experiment then it should not be considered valid. The point of a scientific experiments is to provide reasoning, answers and explanations to theories that can’t be explained.
Variation is necessary for any specie because it allows a variety of different traits…
