The theory of evolution through natural selection describes how humans and other animals have evolved over a long period of time. Charles Darwin made a hypothesis based on the different pictures of the same animal that were found over the years. There was a slight change in its features, which brought him to the conclusion of how animals adapt over time. His theory began to gather more evidence when discovering fossilized “ape-like” bone structures, which gives great data to his theory that all animals evolve over time to adapt to their surroundings. There are many species that do not exist because they did not have the capability to move forward in order to survive. With enough evidence to prove this theory is probable, there was an effort made to prove that man-kind, or human beings, also adapted to the new surroundings brought forth. That being said, due to our ability to be different than any other species, we have evolved just like any other life form trying to survive. To support this claim, the fossils he found were believed to be a part of what we have evolved from, also to be supported with monkeys. There is said to be a “middle man” in between his findings… but there isn’t enough evidence today to prove that humans have “evolved” because our DNA is so complex and doesn’t even come close to the DNA of a monkey. The conflict between Intelligent Design is that these theorists believe there was a purpose to human life and that evolution doesn’t fit because the DNA structure is so complex that natural selection could not have put together such complex DNA codes without the help of something to guide the molecules. Natural selection claims that each molecule is drawn to each other, but it still does not explain why they are drawn and how they function without an Intelligent Designer. Intelligent Design theorists are well aware that evolution of life is possible, but for human species Intelligent Design theorists believe that there must be a more...
