The Breakthrough (600 words) (Note – the three points below can be addressed in whatever order adds the most drama.) Charles Darwin was a genius about his discovery of natural selection and evolution. Although he was not the first to attempt the discovery, he was right. The first person who thought of evolution was wrong of many points in which Charles was able to make right. Charles came up with a new theory that actually made sense.
Beside evolution, Tree of Life also metaphorically represents the general relationship between different species over time. While the concept of sharing a common ancestor is still debated even until today, so is evolution. So does evolution actually happen? Yes, it is even still and will always be happening. There are many evidences of evolution and one of it is homology.
Darwin during those 5 years, spent time researching and getting specimens of animals. After his exploration he observed the specimens with professionals, and soon found out that certain animals were the same but different in look wise, or that from the beginning of time, the creatures he saw then weren’t the same as the creatures before his era. He then makes an idea called transformism. Transformism is when an animal or creature changed or became different through time.
There are many theories of evolution that have emerged even before Charles Darwin 's time. Surprisingly, many of the theories, including Darwin 's own, were spot on to what we know today. In fact, Charles Darwin 's grandfather, Erasmus Darwin, had the idea that species evolved from a common ancestor. Of course, Darwin is the most famous theorists of all with his theory of natural selection. Darwin is also the only one of the many evolution theorists to have evidence of evolution and natural selection.
He noticed that these finches were similar to other species that were on different islands. This helped him make up the following conclusions; Evolution has occurred, splitting of single species into two or more species, and evolution change is gradual. Many people helped Darwin develop his ideas. The first person was Carolus Linnaeus, he established the modern system of taxonomy that helped group species based
He preferred to write from his own memories to using other people 's because he wanted to bring out that sense of reality. From this self-experiences, he visited one place after the other after which he wrote at least some articles or short stories describing his experiences on the tours (Wagner-Martin 13). Therefore, during his regular visits to the various regions, he was able to meet some good friends who enabled him to perfect more on his level of writing. One of the people he met while on these trips was Ricketts, a learned biologist who played a major role in his writing career. Steinbeck was able to extract more ideas from Ricketts and even learn some of the things from him.
During the Renaissance was spreading in Europe, in 1450s a German scientist Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, which made him the most influential person of the last thousand years, who put the end of a long evolution in human communication. The most important consequences of the printing press were the expanding knowledge to the world, the spread of religion and the development of science. The invention of printing press expanded the knowledge of the people about the world and the things that happened during the time. Printing press spread the knowledge to the people by maps and geographic images. The map from 1489 didn’t show the things really realistically, but it was the first map to show that Africa had a southern border (doc
While on a walk with a college friend one evening in 1882, Tesla had a sudden moment of realization that he had long been searching for that would make the development of an AC motor possible, which would later become one of the greatest discoveries in history. In this moment, he realized using a rotating magnetic field would allow the AC motor to run feasibly. Although a remarkable student, Tesla dropped-out of college to move to Paris knowing he could better apply himself and his ideas on electricity in a position at the Continental Edison Company. He only held this position for two years and left Paris to move to the United States seeking to work alongside Thomas
Historic information: The introduction of the Binomial nomenclature system is credited to the Swedish scientist, Carl Linnaeus, (1707 – 1778) who formalized this system. However, Gaspard Bauhin (1560-1624), who was a Swiss botanist described thousands of plants and classified them in a manner that were later adopted by Linnaeus. Common names versus scientific names: Historically and before the introduction of the current nomenclature system by Linnaeus, the plants usually had many long descriptive Latin names, making learning and memorizing them very difficult. The current universal nomenclature system enables scientists around the world to share information about given organism accurately without ambiguity. Unlike scientific names, common names are not unique and so it is quite often to find several names for the same species whether at national levels or even at localized regions as well as in different languages.
He also completed a doctorate in the study of art history in this University. Just a while later, in 1936, he decided to write his first book; A Little History of the World. He wrote this book to educate children and teenagers. Sadly, the book got banned by the German Nazi organization for peacemaking, which the Nazis didn’t want at that time period. But luckily, before the book got banned, he already fled to Britain in 1939.
In 1668 the world 's first reflecting telescope was built by a well known scientist, Isaac Newton. Although Newton accomplished many things in his life he also faced many struggles growing up. Not only did Newton invent the world 's first reflecting telescope he developed the three laws of motion, discovered many new facts about gravity and had many other accomplishments throughout his lifetime. Isaac Newton is often referred to as one of the most influential scientists. He and Albert Einstein are almost equally matched contenders for this title (The Doc, 2015).
Considering that creationism had been ingrained into virtually every facet of English culture and society for the last one thousand years going back all the way into the dark ages of Europe, it wasn 't easy for naturalist theories to prevail. The Renaissance during the 1400 's and 1500 's certainly threw a wrench into the status-quo but it wasn 't until the Darwinian Evolution during the mid-1800s that these evolutionary beliefs became widely accepted. Early scientists and thinkers like Georges Cuvier, Comte De Buffon, and Jean-Baptiste Lamarck built the foundation of evolutionary principles that Charles Darwin would later capitalize on in his research. After the publication of his famous book On the Origin of Species, a backlash, especially
He built his past research in chronological order from credible sources. In addition, he used the works of various scholarly articles and novels. From his extensive list of resources and his high position in the field of biological anthropology, I’m convinced. The question I would like to ask to better understand his argument is how have mutations evolved, rather than
There are several interesting underwater animals in the earth 's oceans. Several of them have only recently been discovered. Some like the zombie worms have baffled scientists. Others like the deep sea jellyfish have just shocked scientists. Then, there are some like the yeti crabs, which have just confused scientists with how they survive in the hydrothermal vents near Antarctica.
Charles Darwin announced his concept of evolution publically at a meeting of the Linnean Society. He later published an explanation in his work On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. Charles was considered one of the most impactful scientists in history. His speculation of evolution as a British naturalist put him over the top in recognition for his work. Loads of attention has been given
