000 Years Ago 100 000 Years
1,057 wordsAnthropologists today are debating two sides to the story of the evolution of the modern human Homosapian spin. The sides agree on two different theories called the Out of Africa theory and the Multiregional (or Candelabra) theory. The debate, which some may call a slanderous argument, is far from being resolved on either side. Both evolutionist sides have strong evidence, however, this evidence does have its flaws and is not accurate enough to prove one side over another. However, the arguments...

1,355 wordsThe issue of Cloning Cloning The issue of cloning has always been around in our everyday lives. Cloning was common in movies such a as Jurassic Park and The Lost World, where cloning seemed to be an idea of fantasy and not reality. The idea that scientist could just take a little DNA from a dead mosquito and turn it into something that could tower over a skyscraper was very intriguing to most people. On the other hand, there were movies such as Alien Resurrection, in which cloning was necessary ...

Genetically Engineered Genetic Engineering
1,159 words65279; Genetic Engineering will be deadly. The harmful effects of this gene manipulation will not be discovered for years, and it will be too late to reverse the damage. The tools of genetic engineering are natural substances that control biochemical reactions that work like chemical scissors and glue, cutting and pasting DNA molecules and sticking them into the DNA of microbes. The microbes with these transplanted genes may be commercially useful because they can produce proteins that cannot...

Sickle Cell Anemia Blood Cells
764 wordsCharles Darwin stated that over time life could change so much so that new species are formed from a single species. But Darwin did not know where these mutations occurred. His theory could explain how humans and chimps are so alike yet different. Are we all just accidents of creation caused by mutations? Genetic mutations occur in the DNA of an organism. They can be influenced by environment or may occur during mitosis or meiosis. Mutations have been shaping life since it began and is the cause...
