Starting the new year with a new project - evolution
Evolution is fact... Creationism is denial of the facts! I'm guessing people such as yourselves never go to the Smithsonian or any such place. You may have to learn something other than what your bible tells you. Kind of like you insane bible thumpers went after me in that fucking apartment!
Charles Darwin 1809 - 1882 English naturalist. Proposed the theory of natural selection in evolution. Wrote famous " On Origin of Species". 5 year study voyage on the ship "Beagle". Honoured with burial at Westminster Abbey. Described as one of the most influential figures in human history.
A speck of matter came to life, and it began right away to interact within and among itself. Life came accompanied by relationships, a fundamental expression of the connectedness that has been part of all life that has followed. The theory of evolution maintains that mutations occur which alter the capacity of a life form in some way. If the alteration is beneficial, enhancing its life, the mutation is incorporated into the life of the form in an ongoing way.
