Evolution vs. Creationism

Thousands and thousands of people across the globe wonders how did the earth get started? And is evolution just another theory? Evolution is a theory explaining the development and adaptation of life forms to their  environment, for example originally, the vast majority of peppered moths (Biston Betularia) had a light, mottled coloring, which was a good camouflage against  predators. Before the industrial revolution, a uniformly dark variant of the peppered moth made up 2% of the species. After the revolution, 95% of peppered moths showed this dark coloration. This is an example of how organisms have gone through mutations and natural selection.

But it still leaves the question open- where did life come from- originally? How did it get started? Evolution itself doesn’t explain the origin of the first organism, but it explain how new species are drastically different from the way they were at the start, through gradual change with time. Enormous amounts of evidence, from geological time scale, fossil record to molecular genetics points support the theory of evolution. But for instance their is another theory that explain the “evolution” its called darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin and others stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive and reproduce.

How can we rule out the miraculous? one ‘miraculous’ innovation  like collagen would be astonishing, but that’s not enough–collagen makes a “scattered apperance” on the tree of life.  Tree of life is a widespread mythologies , related in the concept of  sacred  tree more generally , and hence in religious and philosophical tradition. The expression tree of life was  used as a metaphor for the phylogenetic tree of common descent in the  evolutionary sense in a famous passage by Charles Darwin.

” If so, this would exemplify an often neglected type of independent evolution called ‘parallel evolution’, in which the similar  sequence of modifications in separate lines  of dec
