  • Is Evolution A Theory Or A Fact?

    Understanding evolution is important because not only does evolution help humans to advance their knowledge in medicine and modify characteristics in plants, it also helps us to uncover the answer to the deepest question known to man, “Where do we come from?” The more evolution is studied and dissected, the more of benefit it is to us and our growing knowledge of earth and it’s history. Just like evolution itself, uncovering the many answers evolution supplies us with takes a lot of hard work…

  • Being Sick In Africa Research Paper

    The sick will not be allowed near their homes, near people who do not carry the disease. They will only be permitted to see other sickly people, and they will not be permitted to interact with the outside world. These camps where the sick reside will be enough to sustain life of healthy humans. There will be no medicine, but there will be food, water, shelter, clothes, and all the basic needs humans have. With all the people having diseases being in a relatively small, closed environment,…

    He believed that all modern creatures had originated from “one living filament”, a common ancestor. Erasmus Darwin didn’t come about with natural selection, but he did believe in rivalry/competition and sexual selection. He Knew that the toughest males reserved the right to mate, so passing on satisfactory traits. He used an integrative method of research, bringing together multiple branches of science to come to his conclusion. A lot of his ideas were similar to those of Jean Baptiste Lamarck,…

  • Meme Concept Of Dawkins

    since evolution is an area where there are few certainties and many general questions as we descend to details. For Dawkins, memes are replicators, units of cultural transmission. A replicator, as its name suggests, is something that can replicate. The best known replicators are genes that make copies of themselves: a DNA molecule can replicate and give rise to two DNA molecules identical to the original. Other non-biological replicators can be clays, especially kaolinite, which are created from…

  • Four Mechanisms Of Evolution

    Genetic drift is a random process in which allelic frequencies change because of differences in survival and reproduction from generation to generation. Genetic drift is more likely to differ the gene pool of small population. In contrast, genetic drift is less likely to alter the gene pool of larger population. For example, an endangered species with a small population can be impacted greatly by genetic drift because of a loss of genetic variation. The last mechanism of evolution is…

  • Theories Of Evolution

    from Latin and literally means “the change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by [undergoing] different processes” (“Evolution”).

Charles Darwin created a theory of evolution which attempts to answer this particular question using his process of natural selection and its four components. This essay will examine these components, such…

  • Sexual Selection Theory: The Evolution Of Human Mating Behavior

    Human mating is observed in almost every culture, leading us to the diverse world we live in today. This signifies our existence and should be important to us. To better understand this behavior, we can take a look at different explanations which shape human mating behavior. Researching this topic we can find evolutionary perspectives, which delve into topics, such as parental investment, survival, and sexual selection.
