    In this lab, we used computer simulations to investigate about the forces of evolution. Evolution is when alleles changes over time in a population. There are four major forces of evolution. These forces may increase or decrease gene diversity, meaning they can introduce new alleles or extinct some alleles. One of the forces is mutation. Mutation is when an error, replication or deletions that cause new genes to arise that neither parents has. This causes the population to become more diversity and is unpredictable. Another force of evolution is genetic drift. Genetic drift is caused when alleles are lost by random chance. It decrease gene diversity in the population. The third force of evolution is genetic flow. Genetic flow is when alleles…

That’s by connecting the human brain with hard copies, so a people can save…

    of science, including genetics, to explain evolution more accurately. When Darwin wrote “On the Origin of Species “, he only explained the first mechanism of evolution, which was natural selection. The modern theory of evolution now highlights three more important mechanisms for evolution, which are mutations, genetic drift, and gene flow. Many fields of study such as molecular biology and comparative anatomy and embryology provide evidence for the modern theory of evolution. Evolutionary…

    Within living things, exists DNA, which stores information and genetic coding. These genes are hereditary and therefore passed down through generations. Although this is incomparable to a bike, it can be compared to complex machinery such as computers. Computers are built of extremely complex coding which determines how the computer functions. Similarly to DNA, a slight error in this coding results in a mutation and can potentially be problematic. Therefore, even something as specific as genetic…

    Human evolution is a very controversial topic these days. There are two sides of the story for the past of human evolution, the creationism and scientific facts. But as for human evolution of the future there are many options. We got the chance to sit down with some people to talk about some of them. We asked each one a series of questions. Theory 1 ‘humans will continue to evolve’ A few weeks ago we got to sit down with a few people to talk about the future of human evolution. The first…

    Creation vs. Evolution Creation and evolution have always been argued head to head. Creationism and evolution, both cannot be proved scientifically yet. Creationism is common among people with a belief in God or another god/deity. They believe in the straightforward interpretation of the bible. Evolutionists though believe in what is the big bang theory which simply states that all things came from nothing. There are many other groups of people in these two major groups but they all have the…

    A description of how scientists in this area of study do their work There are a few way to how scientist study evolution, which are fossils, DNA, homologous and anatomical. Fossils are great records which provide photographs of the past, bones, teeth, shells and imprints of animals and plants. Fossils provide answers to the changes of species and plants and what life was like more than four billion years ago. By using methods like relative and radiometric dating the can find out the age of the…

    Assess the impact of evolutionary thought on psychology. Illustrate your answer with examples of relevant research. The notion of evolution, as described by both Lamarck and Darwin in the 1800’s, had such an impact on intellectual life that it has changed the way we study the human mind today. Darwin’s (1859) theory is still widely accepted as what we know as the theory of natural selection, and provides a structure for examining human behaviour. He saw the future of psychology as “based on a…

    Two of them were the scopes trial and the sacco-vanzetti trial. The Scopes trail came about when John scopes of Dayton, Tennessee admitted to teacher the Theory of Evolution. He, as a high School biology teacher, believed that he could not teach biology without teaching evolution. His trial began on July 10, 1925. When his trial was over with, he was found guilty but only had a one hundred dollar fine and received no jail time. Six days later after eating a very large meal, John Scopes died in…

    We aren't like this no reason. Evolution carved Us out like this For our brains to manipulate our senses to have an advantage over other beings. But what is wrong with seeing reality as it is Why does our brain have to manipulate our surroundings. A scientist by the name Donald Hoffman ran thousands of computer simulations where there were three different types of organisms. One Saw all of reality, the other saw some of reality, and the final category only aimed for fitness. As he repeatedly…
