I am explaining the definition of “Evolution” as defined by the scientist Charles Darwin. “The process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits. Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to it’s environment will help it survive and produce offspring.” Theory of Evolution which was first formulated in his book titled “On the Origin of Species” in the year 1859.

It all started 13.7 billion years ago in the core of a black hole which contains large amounts of gravitational pressure which can squish very fine particles. After the big bang happened the universe eventually cooled and expanded. Every day the universe expands, so trying to find the end will be impossible. Our universe is similar to filling a balloon with air until expands, while keeping all of its contents inside. …show more content…

His theory of evolution is “Widely held notion that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor: the birds, bananas, the fish and the flowers—all related. Darwin’s general theory presumes the development of life from non-life and stresses a purely naturalistic (undirected) descent with modification”. That is, complex creatures evolve from more simplistic ancestors, naturally over time. In a nutshell, as random genetic mutations occur within an organism’s genetic code, the beneficial mutations are preserved because they aid survival—a process known as “natural section”. These beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation. “ Over time, beneficial mutations accumulate and the result is an entirely different organism (not just a variation of the original, but an entirely different
