This is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological population over succesive generations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organisation including species individual organisns and molecules such as DNA (Deoxyribonucler acid) and proteins.
All life on earth is descended from a last universal ancestor that lived approximately 3.8 billion years ago.
Repeated speciation and the divergence of life can be inferred from shared set of biochemical and morphological traits.
Charles Darwin was the first to formulate a scientific argument for the theory of evolution by means of natural selection.
1.More offspring are produced than can possibly survive.
2.Traits differences are heritable.
3.Traits vary among individuals leading to different rates of survival and reproduction.
Thus, when member of a population dies they are replaced by the progeny of parents better adapted to survive and reproduce in the environment in which natural selection takes place. This process creates and preserve traits that are fitted for the functional roles they perform.
Natural selection is the only know cause of adaptation but not the only know cause of evolution.
This means to bring to existence.
God creates by spoken words – ”let there be” Gen.1:1-31; 2:1-15
God created the first man from dust and breaths his own breath into him which thus become a living being Gen.2:7.
God first surgerical operation was when he created a woman from man according to Gen.2:21-22.
God took one of Adam (the first man name) and made a woman.
God gave out a commandment. Gen.2:16-18
”And the Lord God commanded the man saying of every tree of the garden that may eat, but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil thou shall not eat. For in the day thou eat it, you shall die.”
Man disobeyed the commandment. And thus, God cursed them.
God didn’t wan’t his creation to end so he allowed continuity of life. He allowed reproduction Gen.3:16. Humans get formed in the womb Ps.91:8; Jer.1:50.
Then evolution began. Because as stated ”all life on earth is descended from a last universal ancestor” that’s true….. the universal ancestor began in Gen5:1-32.
If the earth is estimated to be of existence about 3.8 billion years ago; definately the creation of the world happened before then.
Charles Darwin could not have brought about evolution if no one was of existence before then.
According to the theory of evolution; ”Afterdeath, the population are replaced by progeny (children) of their parents….. yes, this true-Death began in Gen.3:19b For dust thou art and unto dust thou return.
Ain’t trying to be all so religious or trying to make you see the theological aspect of the world creation. This is just too real to be ignored.
God make us know things he permits us to know (not because we are wise or knowledgeable to carry out research). God is the all knowing being. He knows the end fron the begining and begining to the end. (Isa. 46:10a)
He let us marvel and wonder at his handiwork.
Now the question is:
Are you Created or Evoluted?.
