    universe and life originated “from specific acts of divine creation” (“Creation Tips”). But, how can that be true when you have physical evidence such as Fossils, DNA, and natural selection? In theory, evolution is a more logical and believable argument than creationism because evidence such as fossils, DNA, and natural selection can support the theory much better than a book that has been translated into different languages. Evolution can be seen in almost every living thing,…

The strongest and most important organisms do not survive over the generations. Although evolution occurs due to fitness in an individual or individuals of a species, an organism cannot survive over generations. Fitness is achieved through variations in populations of species through genetic differentiation (Scottville “n.d.”). Since the life cycle of all living…
