Stellar Evolution - In astronomy, stellar evolution refers to the changes which stars undergo during their lifetime. Stars change in color, luminosity, size and temperature through their lifespan. Scientist can not study an individual stars lifetime though because they far exceed ours and therefore we must study stellar evolution by observing the life cycle of numerous stars, each at a different point in its life cycle, and then running computer models which simulate the structure of stars. Through history stars have been recorded, starting with the brightest, which have been named going back as far as 1000 b.c....   [tags: physics space stellar evolution] 1854 words

Creation Versus Evolution - Both Arguments Can be Right - Creation Versus Evolution “Creation Versus Evolution.” What’s wrong with this title. Read it to yourself a few times, and then answer that question. We’ve all heard of the argument. Creationism, the idea that God created all the species as they appear today, versus Evolutionism, the idea that all life evolved from simple bacteria to all the species that appear today, is a familiar controversy. Ever since Darwin first published the Theory of Evolution in his controversial 1859 book The Origin of Species, the debate has raged between religion and science....   [tags: Creationism Evolution Science Religion Essays]

Thomas Malthus, Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution - Thomas Malthus and Charles Lyell were two figures who influenced Darwin's theories. Malthus was an influence through his book on the population principle. Darwin had a parallel thinking in the concept of individual struggle in natural selection. Lyell's influence on Darwin was from his book "Principles". Darwin agreed with Lyell's uniformitarian theories, and the uniformitarian understanding helped Darwin explain the elements of natural selection. Malthus believed that starvation would always be a part of human life because he thought that population would increase at a greater rate than food supply....   [tags: Natural Selection, Evolution Essays]

Testing Evolutionary Brain Size Change in Bats - Testing Evolutionary Brain Size Change in Bats In his classic text on the evolution of the brain in vertebrates, Jerison (1973) demonstrated with numerous examples that brains have increased in size over time in most mammal lineages. He thus confirmed a general trend that had been progressively recognized since the time of Marsh (1874). More recent studies have confirmed Jerison’s findings for primates (Martin, 1990), cetaceans (Marino et al., 2004) and carnivores (Finarelli & Flynn, 2007). It was originally thought that the development in brain size was related to body surface area (Jerison, 1973), but then it was shown that brain size may be correlated to maternal metabolic turnover inst...   [tags: Evolution] 2606 words

Primates: From Food to Communication - Over the course of millions of years, primates’ evolutionary ancestors developed their brains to the point that the brain became the most energy intensive organ in the body. Large brains are very costly investments for an organism, both in terms of percentage of energy consumption, and in terms of the period spent outside the womb in which the organism is unable to defend itself (Cheney & Seyfarth, 2007). Based on evolution scientists know this fact to be true. The only question remaining is: what in the many varied environments of primates led to this overall increase in relative brain and skull sizes....   [tags: Evolution]

Bones Don't Lie - Bones Don’t Lie The Creationist and Evolutionist worldview is one of, if not, the most controversial issue ever debated, and has been for centuries. The two oppositional worldviews are at, what seems to be, an unending war. Mainly because of their many blatant differences like: the age of the earth, the fossil record, the origin of plants and animal, but none more prominent than the issue regarding the origin of mankind. The Evolutionist worldview believes that everything in the universe: “a process in which something passes by degrees to a different stage (especially a more advanced or mature stage)”; including life, came forth of a naturalistic cause....   [tags: Evolution]

Evolution Is - Evolution Is Has the narrative of Mayr and his fellow naturalists—those evolutionists who include natural selection in their explanations and who comprise a strong majority of evolutionist voices today—now entered a sort of evolutionary stasis. Not yet. For example, consider Mayr's central theory of speciation as it applies to a creative species such as humans. There are cultural and creative aspects of our so-called "higher level" species that have the potential to perturb whether and how new species taxa might evolve from homo sapiens: mobility and its effect on isolation, technology applied to environmental and physiological conditions, artificial constraints on reproduction, social cul...   [tags: Science Biology Essays]

Evolution and Religion - Religion has existed as the answer and life guidance for billions of people from essentially the dawn of intelligent human life as we know it. In the 1830’s, Charles Darwin revolutionized the field of science by researching and publishing his theory of evolution. This caused an immediate and volatile response, especially from people of a religious bent. From then up until now, scientists and creationists have fought bitterly over whether evolution actually occurred or if God created humans, as we know them....   [tags: answer, life guidance, Charles Darwin, science]

Evidence for Evolution - Evolution and Diversity
 Evolution and Diversity The foundation for the theory of evolution was laid by Charles Darwin (Rose, n.d.). He developed hypotheses about natural selection which helped scientists develop the theory. Evolution is a theory and not a hypothesis because evolution has been proven by vast amounts of scientific data, research, and testing. The definition of a hypothesis is an educated explanation that needs to be researched and tested but has not yet been proven (Earman, 1984)....   [tags: Scientific Research ]

Evolution: The Antichrist - Does evolution contradict Christianity. Dawkins asserts that if evolution is true, then there would be no need for any form of god because “God” does not control anything (2). Religion has always been a delicate subject matter.

Ever since Charles Darwin published his book On The Origin of Species, the prattle between creationists and evolutionists has been exceedingly tempestuous.

The last step of that dance, reconciliation, is the perpetual stumbling block for many followers of many different religions.

Evolution Should Be Taught In School - Evolution occurs biologically and organically and it refers to the change of organisms, rather natural or with external modification, over many generations of time (Young 3). Although not completely proven, evolution is widely accepted by the scientific community, who has expressively proven this information with the inability for skeptics to disprove the theory of evolution (Scott 11; Young 3). Those with religious views of creationism believe that God created humans rather than in the evolution of human beings; this is an antiscientific point of view (Cracraft para 3)....   [tags: science over religious beliefs]

The Epic of Evolution: Religion on the Rise? - The theory of Evolution introduced new possible truths to people in the world. For centuries, religion was the only truth that was known until the Scientific Revolution era. The makings of the universe and the multitudes of species that live within it have a more probable and possible origin through scientific study than the mystical workings of a mysterious higher being. Evolutionary ideas, similarly to other religions, come together to form basic ideas, beliefs, and ritual practices. For example, the tree/web of life is a diagram showing the theoretical evolution of all species and an inspiration for people to work together with our ecosystems in promotion of a healthy earth....   [tags: ideas, religion, earth, ecosystem] 589 words

Then he soon noticed he would like to be a naturalist.
