Charles Darwin Evolutionary Report

 

Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882) was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. His proposition that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors is now widely accepted and considered a foundational concept in science.

Evolution by natural selection is one of the best-substantiated theories in the history of science, supported by evidence from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including paleontology, geology, genetics, and developmental biology.

There are two basic points: (1) All life on earth is connected and related to each other. (2) The diversity in this connection is brought about by natural selection of adaption to the environment and push/pull stresses experienced by organisms.
