Science never “sucks” right? Well here is evolution in a way that you and I can understand!


So what is Evolution?!?

In general terms, biological evolution is the process of change by which new species develop from already existing species over time; in genetic terms, evolution can be defined as any change the populations of organisms from generation to generation.

We came from a Monkey? Actually an Ape! Humans are more closely related to modern apes than to monkeys, but we didn't evolve from apes, either. Humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees. Scientists believe this common ancestor existed 5 to 8 million years ago.



Who came up with This Idea Anyway? Charles Darwin Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection was considered dangerous in 19th-century.


Can Evolution be proven? A scientific theory stands until proven wrong -- it is never proven correct. The Darwinian theory of evolution has withstood the test of time and thousands of scientific experiments, nothing has disproved it since Darwin first proposed it more than 150 years ago.



Do I have to be in shape for Natural Selection Work?  NO! In the process of natural selection, individuals in a population who are well adapted to a particular set of environmental conditions have an advantage over those who are not so well adapted. The advantage comes in the form of survival and reproductive success, so you have to reproduce the fastest and have the most offspring.




Well then are we all related? Yes but all organisms have there own genes and characteristics that can’t be mimicked.
