This common ancestor theory is backed up evidence that supports it such as fossils and the genomes of many species that have been compared and found to be extremely similar. There are several mechanisms to evolution such as natural selection and genetic drift. It is important to note that genetic mutations lead to variation, and these mutations can be beneficial and will be passed down from generation to generation. This is all part of evolution, as the changes within…

    Science Explanation and Added Information Adaptations: 0. (No Pigment - Human): We added in this adaptation to increase the level of survivability of humans. We thought that a reduction in pigment (or increase amount of pheomelanin which causes light skin and hair) would lead to less color in the skin and in the hair (or extreme white hair and skin) which will blend in into the surroundings. With this adaptation, these humans will be less likely to stand out in the snow and they will have and…

    scientific method is a procedure that scientists use to make systematic observations, experiments, and to formulate a hypothesis. During the 18th century, Darwin discovered one of many reasons on why evolution occurs and established the theory of natural selection that would later become the model for other scientific studies. However, many scientists questioned his approach that was a technique traditionally different from the modern scientific method. Because of this, Ayala draws a comparison…
