Charles Darwin was the first to formulate a scientific argument for the theory of evolution by means of natural selection. Evolution by natural selection is a process inferred from three facts about populations:
1) more offspring are produced than can possibly survive,
2) traits vary among individuals, leading to different rates of survival and reproduction, and
3) trait differences are heritable.
Thus, when members of a population die they are replaced by the progeny of parents better adapted to survive and reproduce in the environment in which natural selection takes place. This process creates and preserves traits that are seemingly fitted for the functional roles they perform.
Natural selection is the only known cause of adaptation, but not the only known cause of evolution. Other, non-adaptive causes of evolution include mutation and genetic drift.
I do believe in the Theory of Evolution. I also believe that Charles Darwin was right in saying that he had discovered the blue print of life and how it evolved. I would like to add that I myself believe that Charles Darwin had actually discovered the Blue Print of how God derived to the conclusion of man.
The design process from the single celled Amoeba to the Human beings took an extensive time, and that time for the design process or the blue print (is what Darwin discovered) have been left intact here on Earth for humans to observe. That is what I believe Darwin had discovered when he realized that there was an evolutionary “link” in all the living things present on the planet today.
Just like the evolution of the Wright Brothers first airplane model that flew have evolved over time to the now more sophisticated computerized flying machine and the giant of the sky the Airbus A380. The evolutionary path taken by the airplane models can be found and witnessed at any Aviation History museums located Worldwide. The exhibition at the Aviation museum actually shows us the Blue Print of the evolution of the aircraft. The “evolution of life” on the other hand can be witnessed and observed in God’s museum – the planet Earth.
