Evolution in 1-2-3
1) Descent with modification
2) Adaptation and natural selection
More than a fact
”It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane”
Richard Dawkins, Put Your Money on Evolution (New Your Times, 1989)
"Methodological naturalism is a “ground rule” of science today which requires scientists to seek explanations in the world around us based upon what we can observe, test, replicate, and verify."
Kitzmiller vs. Dover School District, The Memorandum Opinion by Judge Jones III
3.85 billion years ago the Late Heavy Bombardment of Earth ended, and the surface of Earth could cool and the molten rocks solidify. 3.8 billion years ago the first minimally complex single cell organisms appeared. In a mere 50 million years, nature, by way of chance and necessity, assembled an incredibly complex biochemical machine consisting of maybe as few as 300 proteins, the shortest of which with a propability of about 1 in 10125 of forming.
This increadibly improbable event marked the arrival of the fittest, our common ancestor.
