And what is a theory....AN IDEA. A hypothesis is an educated guess nothing more. Which puts them both in the same boat. So have a nice day with your fantasy evolution.


You don't read anything we post do you? A theory is a TESTED idea. Not just a tested idea. An observed idea that has STOOD UP to rigorous scientific testing.

How daft.

Tell me more about the evolution , the history etc...


I see lot of expert here and i'm scraching my head as to why is it not officially titled "Fact Of Evolution"

Because modern evolutionary sythesis is a theory which best describes a natural phenomenon! It would be disingenious to describe a theory as a fact.

The only discipline in which proofs exist is mathematics.


I've noticed a commonality over the last few post... you and Evanzsayz are constantly:

"tell me more"
"educate me"
"look this up for me"

How about getting off yout lazy backsides and looking for yourselves? Is thinking that hard to do? lol

because in science they don't use the terminology "fact".

9th grade science class teaches that.

We have hypotheses, theories, and laws.

You haven't got a clue about "THEORY" of evolution"

All i see buzz words and dodgy links.......Tell me more, because i'm dumb

If it was tested, where are the results? They don't have it down to a fact that all life was created in a big bang. It's a theory an idea because there too stupid to put it bluntly.

You're entire argument is based on the definition of theory and hypothesis! There are plenty of online dictionaries...

All life created in the big bang? And you say "there [sic] too stupid"

"all life was created in the big bang" sounds an awful lot like a bastardized biblical explanation and nothing like any scientific explanation ever.

Now, for that proof, one need look no further than drug-resistant bacteria and viruses.

When you sanitize, vaccinate against, or simply wipe out most of strain of a virus or bacteria, some come back and are able to resist such things in the future. We've all heard about drug-resistant bacterium.

onlinelibrary.wiley.com...

That's a scholarly article, written in a scientific journal, outlining how multidrug-resistant bacteria can be combated. It refers to it as mutation based evolution.

As for this, the history of "evolution", as you put it, is nowhere near brief and has been going on since before humans could record it, before humans existed, before creatures had the ability to write.

I will, on the other hand, post some of a simple wikipedia search for History of evolutionary thought


Evolutionary thought, the conception that species change over time, has roots in antiquity, in the ideas of the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Chinese as well as in medieval Islamic science. With the beginnings of biological taxonomy in the late 17th century, Western biological thinking was influenced by two opposed ideas. One was essentialism, the belief that every species has essential characteristics that are unalterable, a concept which had developed from medieval Aristotelian metaphysics, and that fit well with natural theology. The other one was the development of the new anti-Aristotelian approach to modern science: as the Enlightenment progressed, evolutionary cosmology and the mechanical philosophy spread from the physical sciences to natural history. Naturalists began to focus on the variability of species; the emergence of paleontology with the concept of extinction further undermined the static view of nature. In the early 19th century, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck proposed his theory of the transmutation of species, the first fully formed theory of evolution.

In 1858, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace published a new evolutionary theory that was explained in detail in Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). Unlike Lamarck, Darwin proposed common descent and a branching tree of life, meaning that two very different species could have identical ancestry. The theory was based on the idea of natural selection, and it synthesized a broad range of evidence from animal husbandry, biogeography, geology, morphology, and embryology.

History of evolutionary thought


Let me make it clear and simpler ! Despite having its roots in ancient Greece, the theory of evolution was first brought to the attention of the scientific world in the nineteenth century. The most thoroughly considered view of evolution was expressed by the French biologist

Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, in his Zoological Philosophy (1809).

Lamarck thought that all living things were endowed with a vital force that drove them to evolve toward greater complexity. He also thought that organisms could pass on to their offspring traits acquired during their lifetimes. As an example of this line of reasoning, Lamarck suggested that the long neck of the giraffe evolved when a short-necked ancestor took to browsing on the leaves of trees instead of on grass.

This evolutionary model of Lamarck's was invalidated by the discovery of the laws of genetic inheritance. In the middle of the twentieth century, the discovery of the structure of DNA revealed that the nuclei of the cells of living organisms possess very special genetic information, and that this information could not be altered by "acquired traits." In other words, during its lifetime, even though a giraffe managed to make its neck a few centimeters longer by extending its neck to upper branches, this trait would not pass to its offspring. In brief, the Lamarckian view was simply refuted by scientific findings, and went down in history as a flawed assumption.

However, the evolutionary theory formulated by natural scientist who lived a couple of generations after Lamarck proved to be more influential. This natural scientist was


Charles Robert Darwin

and the theory he formulated is known as "Darwinism."

That, my friend is a hoax and publicity stunt.


Mermaids: The Body Found was a purely fictional work, dealing with a purported military coverup of the discovery of a remnant population of mermaids described as an evolutionary offshoot of the "aquatic ape" hypothesis (a generally discounted idea that early Hominid species went through an aquatic phase in their evolution). The program was not fact but rather speculative science fiction, and it included obvious CGI-produced video sequences like the one displayed above.

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm no expert. I'm a stand-up comedian and writer. I just payed attention in class.

You, on the other hand, must be a scholar of, you know...something.
