The Genius of Charles Darwin

Post  Paola fix on Sun Mar 20, 2011 3:52 pm

Today, the answer is still not known. Was earth created by god? Or did earth evolve with time? Charles Darwin, and English naturalist, stepped forward and tried to find some evidence of evolution. As he studied his ideas, he came up with his theory that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors.
Darwin published his first book The Origin of Species, containing his proofs of evolution. Darwin states that in the process of Natural Selection the genetic changes causes the process of reproduction to be bigger, becoming more common as generations pass.
Darwin had his most opposing group against his theory; the religious part of the world. It was very likely that religious people would not believe Darwin’s theory because they were taught that God created this world, and many other stories passed down through generation.
Later on, Charles Lyell came up the with the idea that earth must be billions of years old, according to the evidence that fossils give us.
Darwin’s theory had a tremendous impact on everyone who heard about it, maybe people did not show it but they thought about it, and thought of how there is so much evidence given to us and some people might have also completely changed their beliefs. Even though not 100% of the world agree with the Theory of Evolution, I think that they should at least consider it.

The big Bang theory is what started it all, and evolution is a FACT

Like Shannon says, it depends on what you believe. There are proves that we have evolved, but some people just choose to believe that god created everything.

We are lucky to have technology and everything to find at least facts easier than Charles Darwin since he probably was one of the first people who thought about theories that contradicted bible in these times.
