Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist. He established that all life descended from a common ancestor and that living things change over time.


Proof for evolution

Fossil Evidence

  • Species have clearly changed
  • Have found many transitional fossils
  • Fossils show a glimpse in evolutionary past


  • Many species have similar structures
  • Ex. Most plants have leaves
  • Ex. Most animals have similar bones (humerus, ulna, radius)

evidence by example

  • Viruses mutate and evolve quickly
  • Darwin's finches for example as well
  • Galapagos tortoises also are a proof


Arguments against evolution

holy texts

  • Holy texts say that God created all life
  • Life hasn't changed because the earth is only 6000 y/o
  • There is no basis for the 7 day week

we haven't observed it

  • Evolution claims to happen over millions of years...
  • but can you prove it?
  • The fossil record is lacking transitional species

Noah's ark

  • The buried fossils indicate a worldwide catastrophe
  • The millions of fossils indicate this
  • There was a fossilized miners hat: 50 y/o

It is a fact

This is my stance
