For many years, it has been widely debated how modern man came about. In this

and Intervention. I will also discuss which theory I believe and why it is that
I believe it.
Evolution, in biology, is the complex process by which organisms which
originated on earth change because of changes in their environment and their
function on earth. The earliest fossils ever discovered are from single celled
organisms which resemble today's bacteria. People who believe in evolution
believe that for approximately 3.4 billion years these single celled organisms
have changed and evolved into many different species including humans. This
theory also states that humans and other species continue to evolve today and
as a result of all these changes they will eventually become a totally different
species then what they are now. Evolutionists believe that evolution has created
many organisms spread across the globe, some of which have become extinct and
some of which are the plants and animals which live today.
The theory that groups of organisms can be transformed into different organisms
has been suggested many times since the early 1800s, when scientists began
looking for evidence that the evolution process took place. "The most
outstanding evolutionists in the nineteenth century was Jean Baptist de Lamarck,
who argued that the patterns of resemblance arose through modifications of a
common lineage-for example , that lions tigers and others all descendant from a
cat like ancestor." (Dickey p.42) It had already been a widely accepted theory
that different animals adapt to different modes of life and environmental
conditions. Lamarck argued that physical and mental changes occurred from animal
adaptations to... [continues]
