Science Fact of the Month – June 2010
Did you know about the Theory of Natural Selection? This month , in our one – hundreth post, we cover the premise of this scientific theory.
The theory of natural selection which was formed by Charles Darwin is that no two members of the same species are exactly identical. This is due to differences such as biological inheritance and the ability to partake in environmental adaptation. Over time some members of a species will develop physical features which enable it to survive while others will not and thus die. Those who survive will procreate , ultimately creating a new species.
Proof to support this theory is how recent genetic studies link all of us back to a common African origin. This shows that we have evolved, thus explaining why we have a variety of different physical features/ looks and cognitive abilities.
What are your thoughts on the theory?Do you have any additional proof to support it?Do you have reason to disagree with it? Sound off in the comments section below!
