This Galtonian ideal of eugenics is often thought of as positive eugenics. Eugenics can be defined as the outgrowth of human heredity aimed at “improving” the quality of the human stock (Allen

    Evidence of Evolution

    Basilosaurids and dorudontids lived in the late Eocene, approximately 35 and 41 million years ago. They are mainly known from the eastern United States and from Egypt, but were probably worldwide in their distribution. Basilosaurids were enormous (possibly up to 60 feet long) and had snake-like bodies. They had a tailfluke, but it is not clear whether that was the main propulsive organ. Dorudontids were proportionally more like dolphins. Both basilosaurids and dorudontids had complete

A lot of evidence is present that indicates that the earth has had a very long history and that all living things arose in the course of that history from earlier, more simpler forms. In other words, all species have descended from other species and all living things share common ancestors in the past. Basically, organisms

    Charles Darwin had two great themes in "On the Origin of Species" which accounted for the similarities and adaptations characteristic of living organisms. To account for the adaptations of organisms and those innumerable features that equip them for survival and reproduction, Darwin (and Wallace) independently came up with the central theory of evolutionary process: natural selection. Natural selection gives insight in to why organisms are the way that they are. Adaptations are phenotypic variants that

    Evolutionary ideas such as common descent and the transmutation of species have existed since at least the 6th century BCE, when they were expounded by the Greek philosopher Anaximander. Such views rose to prominence in the 18th century, but the first convincing exposition of a mechanism by which evolutionary change could occur was not proposed until 1858, when Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace jointly presented the theory of evolution by natural selection to the

His claim that we are all products of evolution questioned the traditional Western conceptions of our nature by suggesting that we are not made in God's image, but rather are the result of a natural evolutionary process that makes us a more developed version of the cognitive powers of nonhuman primates.

    Evolution Vs. Creationism

    People are always arguing over which theory is true, evolution or creationism. The theory of evolution has a lot to do with natural selection. Natural selection is when the individual with the best traits survives, and passes on their good traits to their offspring. Those offspring create more individuals with those strong traits, and eventually all of the species will have those strong traits. This means that if this cycle is carried on long enough,
