    The evolution of human beings has been a major research area with controversy being whether human beings evolved from the chimpanzee. Based on various theories and research reports that have been presented, scientists believe that a common ancestor to humans existed about 5 to 8 million years ago (Drake, 2015). It is believed that humans evolved from the modern apes such as the gorillas and the chimpanzees more than the monkeys. In the quest to find out the real answers regarding the origin of humans, I decided to find out through research.

  • Is Evolution Necessary To Human Progress?

    The human race, which is arrogant even in their own self-classifications, has dubbed themselves the most advanced species on earth. This claim may be correct, however, it evokes the existential question of how advanced we truly are, and of even more importance, can we continue to advance? It was posed by respected scholars, such as David Attenborough and Ken Ham, that humans have now reached a point at which they can no longer evolve. How can a race be unequivocally superior while simultaneously…

  • The Contributions And Complications Of Polycythemia And Human Evolution

    Mutations and errors in sexual reproduction allow for variation within a population. These variations can eventually lead to the complex process of evolution in a species. The genetically derived mutation Polycythemia and the environmentally derived mutation lip augmentations, affect human evolution in a beneficial and detrimental way. Evolution is change in the aspects of a certain species over a period of time. This is caused by mutations which are variations or differences in the genome. Both…

  • Evolution Of The Human Diet Essay

    Evolution of the Human Diet Presently, the state of people becoming poisoned by the food they are consuming is alarming. This has been attributed to the evolution of the human diet. Many health problems are related to the discordance that has been a result of diet changes that have outstripped the ability of genetic development to keep pace with the alternations in what people consume today (Ungar and Mark 145). Nutritionists today are arguing that there is increased inundated fat, high gleamy…

  • Fossils: The Evolution Of Modern Humans

    The discovery and observations of fossils have led us to a lot of conclusions of where modern humans come from (Larsen 2008). Fossils are very significant because they are pieces from the past that provide us with evidence of organisms that were once alive (Larsen 2008). The three hominins that I’ll be comparing are Sahelanthropus tchadensis, the Australopitheicus afarensis, and the Homo neanderthaleasis. This gives us a wide range to compare from really early on to a more recent hominins that…

  • The Contradiction Between Human Evolution And Religion

    Human evolution is the long process of change in which humankind originated from apes. Before Charles Darwin, Carolus Linnaeus, chose the word,”homo,” which is Latin for human, in his classification system. During this time, along with Linnaeus, other scientists considered apes to be close relatives to humans due to their anatomical similarities. In the 1960s and 70s, African researchers found fossils of australopithecines, an extinct creature related to humankind in Africa. Later more fossils…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Human Evolution

    The reason humans are an excellent species is we can control our own destiny. Also, we have advanced sciences and technologies to protect ourselves.We can use and control nature to feed our own. Some scientists think that the evolution of human beings has been stopped. But this is not the truth. The evolution of the human species does not stop. Human is a new species evolved by chimpanzee.Then, a series of unique mutations were carried out from human. Thus, these mutations form the unique…

  • Bipedalism In Human Evolution Essay

    considered some of the most important characteristics that separate humans from other species. The article, “Kinship in a Footprint?” by Michael Day, delves into the significance of bipedalism in hominin evolution and the different ways in which bipedalism is studied. He writes that bipedalism and upright posture are behavioral responses in relation to the environment for primate species. It is useful in increasing visual surveillance, displaying threats, social grooming, and transporting food,…
