Since Darwin first proposed his ideas about biological evolution and natural selection, different lines of research from many different branches of science have produced evidence supporting his belief that biological evolution occurs in part because of natural selection.

Because a great amount of data supports the idea of biological evolution through natural selection, and because no scientific evidence has yet been found to prove this idea false, this idea is considered a scientific theory. Because lots of evidence supports scientific theories, they are usually accepted as true by a majority of scientists.

Here’s a brief summary of the evidence that supports the theory of evolution by natural selection:

Biochemistry is the study of the basic chemistry and processes that occur in cells. The biochemistry of all living things on Earth is incredibly similar, showing that all of Earth’s organisms share a common ancestry.

Comparative anatomy is the comparison of the structures of different living things. This figure compares the skeletons of humans, cats, whales, and bats, illustrating how similar they are even though these animals live unique lifestyles in very different environments. The best explanation for similarities like the ones among these skeletons is that the various species on Earth evolved from common ancestors.



Biogeography, the study of living things around the globe, helps solidify Darwin’s theory of biological evolution. Basically, if evolution is real, you’d expect groups of organisms that are related to one another to be clustered near one another because related organisms come from the same common ancestor.

On the other hand, if evolution isn’t real, there’s no reason for related groups of organisms to be found near one another. When biogeographers compare the distribution of organisms living today or those that lived in the past (from fossils), they find that species are distributed around Earth in a pattern that reflects their genetic relationships to one another.

Comparative embryology compares the embryos of different organisms. The embryos of many animals, from fish to humans, show similarities that suggest a common ancestor.

Molecular biology focuses on the structure and function of the molecules that make up cells. Molecular biologists have compared gene sequences among species, revealing similarities among even very different organisms.

Paleontology is the study of prehistoric life through fossil evidence. The fossil record (all the fossils ever found and the information gained from them) shows detailed evidence of the changes in living things through time.

Modern examples of biological evolution can be measured by studying the results of scientific experiments that measure evolutionary changes in the populations of organisms that are alive today. In fact, you need only look in the newspaper or hop online to see evidence of evolution in action in the form of the increase in the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Radioisotope dating estimates the age of fossils and other rocks by examining the ratio of isotopes in rocks. Isotopes are different forms of the atoms that make up matter on Earth. Some isotopes, called radioactive isotopes, discard particles over time and change into other elements.

Scientists know the rate at which this radioactive decay occurs, so they can take rocks and analyze the elements within them. Radioisotope dating indicates that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, which is plenty old enough to allow for the many changes in Earth’s species due to biological evolution.

For the practice questions, use the terms that follow to identify the type of evidence that supports the theory of biological evolution.

a. Biochemistry

b. Comparative anatomy

c. Biogeography

d. Comparative embryology

e. Molecular biology

f. Paleontology

g. Modern examples

h. Radioisotope dating

A fossil named Archaeopteryx has many features in common with reptiles but also, like birds, shows evidence of feathers.

The genetic code of all life on Earth is written in the same chemical building blocks.

Some genes from the bacterium E. coli have sequences that are similar to genes found in humans.

In the 1940s, infections by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus could be treated successfully with penicillin. Today, populations exist that are completely resistant to natural penicillin, as well as to partially modified penicillins like methicillin. These populations, called MRSA, are very challenging to modern medical professionals.

Whales have tiny, useless bones inside the rear portion of their bodies that are very similar to the bones found in vertebrate legs.

Human embryos have gill slits like those seen in fish embryos. (Developing fish retain their gill slits, whereas humans don’t.)

Marsupial mammals (mammals like kangaroos that protect their young in a pouch) live in just a few places in the world today — Australia, South America, and part of North America. Although Australia is now thousands of miles away from the Americas, in the past the three continents were connected as one larger land mass.

Fossils of the earliest life forms on Earth, which look like bacterial cells, occur in rocks that scientists estimate to be 3.5 billion years old.

The following are the answers to the practice questions.

The answer is f. Paleontology.

The answer is a. Biochemistry.

The answer is e. Molecular biology.

The answer is g. Modern examples.

The answer is b. Comparative anatomy.

The answer is d. Comparative embryology.

The answer is c. Biogeography.

The answer is h. Radioisotope dating.

Since Darwin first proposed his ideas about biological evolution and natural selection, different lines of research from many different branches of science have produced evidence supporting his belief that biological evolution occurs in part because of natural selection.
Because a great amount of data supports the idea of biological evolution through natural selection, and because no scientific evidence has yet been found to prove this idea false, this idea is considered a scientific theory. Because lots of evidence supports scientific theories, they are usually accepted as true by a majority of scientists.
Biochemistry is the study of the basic chemistry and processes that occur in cells. The biochemistry of all living things on Earth is incredibly similar, showing that all of Earth’s organisms share a common ancestry.
Comparative anatomy is the comparison of the structures of different living things. This figure compares the skeletons of humans, cats, whales, and bats, illustrating how similar they are even though these animals live unique lifestyles in very different environments. The best explanation for similarities like the ones among these skeletons is that the various species on Earth evolved from common ancestors.
Biogeography, the study of living things around the globe, helps solidify Darwin’s theory of biological evolution. Basically, if evolution is real, you’d expect groups of organisms that are related to one another to be clustered near one another because related organisms come from the same common ancestor.
On the other hand, if evolution isn’t real, there’s no reason for related groups of organisms to be found near one another. When biogeographers compare the distribution of organisms living today or those that lived in the past (from fossils), they find that species are distributed around Earth in a pattern that reflects their genetic relationships to one another.
Comparative embryology compares the embryos of different organisms. The embryos of many animals, from fish to humans, show similarities that suggest a common ancestor.
Molecular biology focuses on the structure and function of the molecules that make up cells. Molecular biologists have compared gene sequences among species, revealing similarities among even very different organisms.
Paleontology is the study of prehistoric life through fossil evidence. The fossil record (all the fossils ever found and the information gained from them) shows detailed evidence of the changes in living things through time.
Modern examples of biological evolution can be measured by studying the results of scientific experiments that measure evolutionary changes in the populations of organisms that are alive today. In fact, you need only look in the newspaper or hop online to see evidence of evolution in action in the form of the increase in the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

No, it's called.."philosophical bias".
Remember, it isn't all creationists who have a problem with
an eons-old universe, descent from a common ancestor, and
the theory of evolution. It's just the Young Earth Creationists.
They are not very influential at all outside certain US-based
Protestant denominations. One can even be a proponent of
design and claim evolution as a tool of the theoretical designer.
I took biology, more than one course, actually, in Catholic school,
and they had no trouble with an ancient universe and evolution.
"As long as you believe that, at some point ghod intervened and
imbued the precursor animals with souls, making them human" was
the "party line."

That's not what I believe, but it explains why only the naive and
uneducated fall for the YEC line, outside of those denominations
where it is taught as dogma.

Oh, indeed. Which I why I occasionally indulge myself
in posting rebuttals to young earth creationists from this site --

I have said here more than once that believers should admire
the utter elegance of what they should view as God's own algorithm:

a. generate a bunch of random thingies.

b. select the best thingies according to some criterion.

c. have the surviving thingies reproduce.

d. go to 'a'

It's incredibly sparse, elegant, and astonishingly powerful.
It has applications far beyond the evolution of species.
In fact, it is exactly how our immune system figures out
how to combat a novel pathogen it has never encountered before.
"Somatic hypermutation".

And it's so much more intellectually satisfying than "goddidit".

They seem to go back and forth a bit as regards evolution per se.
John Paul II famously endorsed it, Ratzinger walked that back a ways,
Francis embraces it. With of course the caveat you mention, about
slapping souls into bodies at some point.

Indeed. quoting from the above old earth creationism site:

However successful young earth creationism appears to
be, there is a very massive dark side to their efforts,
which they largely ignore, and even scoff at. In their
efforts to reach people, they are promoting the
unscientific claims that the earth is only 6,000 years

the proven scientific principles within astronomy,
geology, physics, biology, and other fields of study,
that clearly show the earth and universe is much older,

they re-interpret to support a young earth.

There's your "philosophical bias" for you.

However successful young earth creationism appears to
be, there is a very massive dark side to their efforts,
which they largely ignore, and even scoff at. In their
efforts to reach people, they are promoting the
unscientific claims that the earth is only 6,000 years
old. In order to support this claim, they have to deny
the proven scientific principles within astronomy,
geology, physics, biology, and other fields of study,
that clearly show the earth and universe is much older,
and replace it with their own twisted science, which
they re-interpret to support a young earth.
There's your "philosophical bias" for you.
I have had a few chats with old-earthers, and though I may disagree with
their “god started the whole shebang” bit I find most of them very
interested in the world around them. We had one in my department in my first
ship, lots of times he would be reading his bible while I might be reading
some SF. If I pulled out a Sky and Telescope he was always interested in what
was new in astronomy. Lots of times once I finished it that mag got passed
around to quite a few others. I only insisted that sooner or later it had to
come back to me.

Same thing with anthropology, geo-science, whatever. “What’s new?” I
never got that horrified look you get from a young-earther.

One of my favorite YouTube things from philhellenes mentions this:



He points to the Milky Way Galaxy and tells believers that they need to
really look at it to really understand their god. And then look at the entire
universe, if their god made it he would want them to understand it.

Damn, I miss his stuff. If you check out the above video also look up
“Spank your Monkey” and “Why didn’t anybody tell me?” In a few of
his videos he is damned near a poet. Good stuff.

This from the guy who can't count past 29 and believes tha 2 million people can live in the desert for 40 years, not find their way out in that time and leave no evidence of ever being there.

There's a lot I don't know but. I still know what a lie is and I still know bullshit when I see it. You post plenty of both.

What is with that tick? Do you have problems with unnecessary
emotions? Is that why you project that on everyone else?

Healthy people do get emotional, from time to time. One tries
to keep it in a range, but lack of emotional affect is a symptom
of something being wrong with a person, and might require help
from a professional.

ROTFL! God prevented them from finding their way out. He sentenced them to wander in the desert for 40 years to consume the generation that had defied Him.

You expect evidence to remain of something that happened in a desert over 3000 years ago?HAHAHAHAHAHA!

This from the guy who can't count past 29 and believes tha 2 million people can live in the desert for 40 years, not find their way out in that time and leave no evidence of ever being there.
EVIDENCE?????????????????????????
ROTFL! God prevented them from finding their way out. He sentenced them to wander in the desert for 40 years to consume the generation that had defied Him.
You expect evidence to remain of something that happened in a desert over 3000 years ago?HAHAHAHAHAHA!

There evidence dates back 49,000 years. So yes, there should be heaps of evidence in the Sinai. But not a shred has been found.
That's not desert.

Since Darwin first proposed his ideas about biological evolution and natural selection, different lines of research from many different branches of science have produced evidence supporting his belief that biological evolution occurs in part because of natural selection.
No, they do not. This is for dummy education.
Post by Cloud Hobbit
Because a great amount of data supports the idea of biological evolution through natural selection, and because no scientific evidence has yet been found to prove this idea false, this idea is considered a scientific theory. Because lots of evidence supports scientific theories, they are usually accepted as true by a majority of scientists.
There is no observable "biological evolution through natural selection" being observed. When we look at monkeys, we note that monkeys give birth to monkeys and this has been observed as long as man has been around. We haven't seen anything, but monkeys. Tomorrow we can expect another monkey being born somewhere. So where's the difference? If what is being said is that nature is hospitable to monkeys and thus selects it to be alive, providing climate and food, OK, but how does that change the monkeys being born? It doesn't. There's another monkey being born every day.

Biochemistry is the study of the basic chemistry and processes that occur in cells. The biochemistry of all living things on Earth is incredibly similar, showing that all of Earth’s organisms share a common ancestry.
As they say, correlation doesn't prove causation. There's a common coding system used in biological entities. There's a common mechanism for food and oxygen transport (cells). A common mechanism for transport (arteries). There's no reason for there to be different means for life creation, as that just lends credibility to a common designer.

Comparative anatomy is the comparison of the structures of different living things. This figure compares the skeletons of humans, cats, whales, and bats, illustrating how similar they are even though these animals live unique lifestyles in very different environments. The best explanation for similarities like the ones among these skeletons is that the various species on Earth evolved from common ancestors.
Yes, we've seen the charts comparing the bones of different animals. For instance, the evolutionists like to point out that different animals have the radius bone. You see the bone highlighted in different charts. This bone is one of two bones that form the human arm. The two long bones that connect to the wrist are called the radius and ulna. Legs are made of two bones as well - called the tibia and fibula. These are bones that were designed to allow for rotation. They allow for wrist rotation and foot rotation. The fact that a monkey or a squirrel has these rotating bones do not mean that they have a common ancestor. Not at all. It just proves that the Creator designed men and animals to be able to rotate their feet and wrists. Can you imagine how creatures could operate without these bones? Can you imagine Tim giving a thumbs up without the ability to rotate his hand? That would be awkward.

Biogeography, the study of living things around the globe, helps solidify Darwin’s theory of biological evolution. Basically, if evolution is real, you’d expect groups of organisms that are related to one another to be clustered near one another because related organisms come from the same common ancestor.
Biogeography , in other words correlation doesn't prove causation. How many times need this be said? Marsupials are found in Australia and South America. The biometrics are inconclusive. Animals will dwell in areas which are sustainable to their livelihood. If the food source isn't available or if the climate prevents it, said animals will not dwell there.
Post by Cloud Hobbit
On the other hand, if evolution isn’t real, there’s no reason for related groups of organisms to be found near one another. When biogeographers compare the distribution of organisms living today or those that lived in the past (from fossils), they find that species are distributed around Earth in a pattern that reflects their genetic relationships to one another.
Comparative embryology compares the embryos of different organisms. The embryos of many animals, from fish to humans, show similarities that suggest a common ancestor.
This has been disproven by modern biologists. There is no recapitulation and I guess that book is for dummies.
Post by Cloud Hobbit
Molecular biology focuses on the structure and function of the molecules that make up cells. Molecular biologists have compared gene sequences among species, revealing similarities among even very different organisms.
Yes, but there are many incongruent patterns available as well.
Post by Cloud Hobbit
Paleontology is the study of prehistoric life through fossil evidence. The fossil record (all the fossils ever found and the information gained from them) shows detailed evidence of the changes in living things through time.
In other words let's not discuss gigantism, which was frequent thing of the past, leaving that issue to sporadic articles scattered here and there. Let's not put that into the textbook thus giving other ideas a chance.

Modern examples of biological evolution can be measured by studying the results of scientific experiments that measure evolutionary changes in the populations of organisms that are alive today. In fact, you need only look in the newspaper or hop online to see evidence of evolution in action in the form of the increase in the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Radioisotope dating estimates the age of fossils and other rocks by examining the ratio of isotopes in rocks. Isotopes are different forms of the atoms that make up matter on Earth. Some isotopes, called radioactive isotopes, discard particles over time and change into other elements.
Scientists know the rate at which this radioactive decay occurs, so they can take rocks and analyze the elements within them. Radioisotope dating indicates that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, which is plenty old enough to allow for the many changes in Earth’s species due to biological evolution.
For the practice questions, use the terms that follow to identify the type of evidence that supports the theory of biological evolution.
a. Biochemistry
b. Comparative anatomy
c. Biogeography
d. Comparative embryology
e. Molecular biology
f. Paleontology
g. Modern examples
h. Radioisotope dating
A fossil named Archaeopteryx has many features in common with reptiles but also, like birds, shows evidence of feathers.
And modern bird fossils have been found in lower strata than said Archaeopteryx. There is discussion that Archaeopteryx is another fraud in the order of Archeraptor.

The genetic code of all life on Earth is written in the same chemical building blocks.
Some genes from the bacterium E. coli have sequences that are similar to genes found in humans.
In the 1940s, infections by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus could be treated successfully with penicillin. Today, populations exist that are completely resistant to natural penicillin, as well as to partially modified penicillins like methicillin. These populations, called MRSA, are very challenging to modern medical professionals.
This isn't proven. Weak forms of staphylococcus aureus were killed off leaving the stronger ones in abundance. Let's not even begin to discuss modern biological warfare and ZPG efforts.

Whales have tiny, useless bones inside the rear portion of their bodies that are very similar to the bones found in vertebrate legs.
No they aren't. Those are bones that facilitate reproduction.

Human embryos have gill slits like those seen in fish embryos. (Developing fish retain their gill slits, whereas humans don’t.)
Human embryos do not have gill slits. This is a modern day medievalism.

Marsupial mammals (mammals like kangaroos that protect their young in a pouch) live in just a few places in the world today — Australia, South America, and part of North America. Although Australia is now thousands of miles away from the Americas, in the past the three continents were connected as one larger land mass.
Fossils of the earliest life forms on Earth, which look like bacterial cells, occur in rocks that scientists estimate to be 3.5 billion years old.
The following are the answers to the practice questions.
The answer is f. Paleontology.
The answer is a. Biochemistry.
The answer is e. Molecular biology.
The answer is g. Modern examples.
The answer is b. Comparative anatomy.
The answer is d. Comparative embryology.
The answer is c. Biogeography.
The answer is h. Radioisotope dating.

So evolution for dummies isn't dumb enough for you.

Nothing you said is true.
Again.

Evolution is still a fact and the theory of evolution explains how it happens.

That it has nearly 100% agreement among scientists and all the spinoff benefits into agriculture, medicine, and other science as well as 150 years of confirming tests show it to be sound.

You still have nothing but blind denial, lies and stupidity.

Depends on how you define the word. That's one reason
why it is controversial. Because it means different things
to different people.

If not, then there is a good chance that you have been
deceived. Which I suspect is what happened in your

No it doesn't. Ask any biologist and they will explain it to you.

There is no fantasy involved. It's chemistry. It has been explained many times. It has been explained many times.
It's descent with modifications.

The only one being deceived is you. The overwhelming majority of biologists and other scientists accept it as fact.
Your constant denial is pointless. The evidence is overwhelming and nothing you say will ever change it. Nothing will stop TOE from being factual.

What are you talking about?
What meaning of "fact" are you talking about?
Can't possibly mean the well established word " evolution" in
the context of today's biology.

Try any biology textbook written sometime since
1960, in any state not run by clergy or maniac dictators.
You will find evolution is defined as the gradual change
of species or populations over time . The ToE explains
this with random mutation and selection. Which of these
three, gradual change, random mutation or selection is
a problem for you? Seriously, I do not see anything in
ToE in conflict with observed nature. Do you?
