Charles Darwin, Natural Selection
We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities… still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.
– Charles Darwin
Darwin was absolutely fundamental to the understanding of life and the species of the world as we know it today. Charles Robert Darwin was born in 1809, and grew to become a naturalist and geologist who would come to change the world.
If you have taken a philosophy class, you know how important his contributions are to biology. He is best known for his theory of evolution and the process of natural selection. As we know today, natural selection is a process in which those that successfully adapted and met the requirements of their changing natural habitat, survived, and those that failed to evolve, died off.
Today is an important day to acknowledge evolution and the concept of natural selection. The heart of it is, if a member of a species survives to pass on its genes, then those genes are the ones that survive to shape the new species. Eventually, with enough beneficial mutations, it can go on to become an entirely new species suited for its environment. Read up! It’s only the ancestors of everything you have to learn about!
