" However, Charles Darwin, Lyell, Haeckel, and other early evolutionists acknowledged him as a great zoologist and as a forerunner of evolution. Would Lamarck have agreed with Darwin? That is the question. Since Lamarck believe that creatures willed themselves to change, he would have felt that the moths felt the need to change. He may have supported natur...

Millions Of Years Theory Of Evolution
457 wordsMy Views on the Process of Evolution For many years people have asked the questions, How did we get here? , and How did mankind come to exist? Astronomers, philosophers, and even mathematicians have come up with explanations. I believe in the theory of Theistic evolution. It is the belief that the universe is over 10 billion years old and the earths crust is over 4 billion years old. However, God caused the first living organism to appear: the cell. From that moment it took over millions of year...

Gods And Goddesses Millions Of Years
720 wordsMillions of years before man was created, there thrived a planet much like Earth. Its inhabitants were the creators of the universe and the masters of all that lived. These beings were later called gods and goddesses. For millenniums these gods and goddesses lived at peace with each other, living off of their own creations. Then from the ashes of the fallen beings rose one god, said to be the most viscous, ruthless, and evil god to have ever risen. His name was Memnoch, often referred to as Memn...

Analysis Of Charles Darwin Origin The Species
1,048 wordsCharles Darwin in his book, On the Origin of Species, presents us with a theory of natural selection. This theory is his attempt at an explanation on how the world and its species came to be the way that we know them now. Darwin writes on how through a process of millions of years, through the effects of man and the effects of nature, species have had a trial and error experiment ongoing. It is through these trials that the natural world has developed beneficial anomalies that at times seem too ...

Millions Of Years Sci Fi
404 wordsMillions of years ago, before the inventions of our time, before the very fire in which we use in our homes, were the first glimpse of civilization. Man had not fully developed his posture or his brain, but the very first signs were showing. Two tribes ruled this small area in the heart of what we now call Africa. These two tribes of 'man-apes' were constantly fighting with each other, the fight to survive. The story leads you to one of the tribes, with 'Moon-Watcher' as one of the lead males, w...

In a coherent world like ours people are questioning their religion and not knowing whether to believe in creation by God or evolution, Through out my research I have found four possible answers to this question to incorporate both theories. Which prove neither wrong and belief in both at the same time One approach would be to believe that when God when created the trees in 4004 BCE, he would have formed them complete with growth rings.

966 wordsAfter debating all of the presented theories I have come to two realizations about creation and the theories relating to it. My first realization was that I find the framework theory the most likely of all the theories because it was the theory with the least holes in it. My second realization was that if all of us agreed on the main points of Genesis (God created the earth, all things are special to Him, He is sovereign over all things, ect) then it really does not make a difference how it was ...

This quote, taken from the Hebrew Bible describes the belief that religious Jews and Christians follow. These two religions think that man, the earth, and the rest of the universe were originally created instead of the theory of evolution. This view on the origin of the earth is unique, because it was the first religion to practice monotheism (belief in one God), and that God alone cr...

Seven hundred miles from the North Pole, lies an island called Axel Heiberg, a barren land that scientists have dug up fossil bones of a cold-blooded reptile known as a champsosaur. How does this happen in an arctic, freezing land? How does a reptile that needs the warmth of the sun to survive, live in a frigid climate? Wel...

It only takes a little energy (1. 9 K/j mole) but it is a very difficult process. To create a diamond you must have temperatures ranging from room temperature to four thousand degrees Celsius, but the big factor is that you must have at least one-hundred thousand and upwards of a million pounds of pressure per square inch (Sass). Diamonds are born 50 miles below Earths s...

The transformation time from tree-shrew, to ape, to human far exceeds the time from an analytical engine, to a calculator, to a computer. However, science, in the past, has always remained distant.

3,426 wordsHuman Evolution: the water theory. Elaine Morgan The crucial question about human evolution is why humans differ so strikingly from the African apes despite their close genetic relationship. Most Darwinists would agree that such differences are usually attributable to differing environmental pressures; and hence that our ancestors at some stage probably occupied a significantly different habitat from the ancestor of the gorilla and the chimpanzee. For the last half-century it has been generally ...

About 37 cat species exist today (Dang, 1994). Tigers evolved in eastern Asia, but it is not exact. Sabre-tooth tigers are not the ancestors of todays tigers. In fact, sabre-tooth t...
