Biology and Evolutionary Theory "When the views entertained in this volume ... are generally admitted, we can dimly foresee that there will be a considerable revolution in natural history." - Charles Darwin,
The Origin of Species
Introduction to Evolutionary Biology
This essay is a must-read for anyone who wants to participate in It lays out the land for evolutionists and creationists alike, presenting the ideas behind and the evidence for biological evolution.
What is Evolution?
All too often creationists spend their time arguing with a straw-man caricature of evolution. This brief essay presents a definition of evolution that is acceptable to evolutionists.
Evolution is a Fact and a Theory
Biologists consider evolution to be a fact in much the same way that physicists do so for gravity. However, the mechanisms of evolution are less well understood, and it is these mechanisms that are described by several theories of evolution.
The Modern Synthesis of Genetics and Evolution
Darwin developed his theory of natural selection without any knowledge of genetics. Since Darwin, genetics and evolution have been synthesized, and natural selection is no longer considered to be the only evolutionary mechanism.

6. Astronomy HyperText Book: Stellar Evolution
From the Electronic Universe Project.
    Animation of the steps listed below: The HR Diagram Stellar Evolution is driven entirely by the never ending battle between Pressure and Gravity . As imbalances are reached, the star is driven to find a new Energy source. Each new stage in stellar evolution is hence marked by a different energy generation mechansism. These stages are discussed below:
  • Structure of a Main Sequence Star Here see that a main sequence star has a simple structure. Pressure and gravitational forces are equal, the star is stable and its core is sufficiently hot to fuse Hydrogen into Helium . Eventually the core of the main sequence star will become pure Helium and that will mark a new evolutionary phase for the star. > More about main sequence stars
  • Structure of a Post Main Sequence Star Now the star has two chemically distinct zones, a core of Helium surrounded by an envelope of Hydrogen. Since Helium has 2 protons in its nucleus then the fusion of Helium requires a higher temperature, to overcome this electrostatic barrier, than the fusion of Hydrogen. Hence the core of the star is not sufficiently hot for Helium fusion to occur initially. Without a source of core energy generation, the core cannot support itself against gravitational collpase and so it begins to collapse. As it collapses it heats. This heat is then transferred to a thin shell of hydrogen around the core which suddenly finds itself at a temperature in which hydrogen fusion can occur. As the core continues to collpase, the temperature in the hydrogen fusing shell continues to rise and thus the

8. A Science Odyssey: You Try It: Human Evolution
Explores when humans evolved, who their ancestors were, and why these species adapted. Includes Shockwave game.
Go directly to Human Evolution activity
(152K - requires Shockwave When did humans evolve? Who are our ancestors? Why did we evolve? At the turn of the century, scientists could only dream about finding the answers to these questions. The fossilized remains of a species known as Neanderthal had been found, and there was a primitive, human-like skull that had been discovered in Indonesia. Beyond that, there was little hard evidence to work with. With the 1912 "discovery" of the Piltdown Man, the study of human evolution was sent down a wrong track. When the phony Piltdown Man, with its human skull and orangutan's jaw, was finally exposed in 1953, the pieces of the great puzzle began to fall into place. With the experts' opinions no longer skewed, the relationship between the real fossils started to make sense. There have been many discoveries, and much has been learned about the human odyssey over the past few decades. Many questions, however, still remain. This activity shows the major hominid (human or human-like) species discovered to date, when they lived, and how they might be related to each other.

There are many other great places to look on-line for information about evolution. Here are a few of our favorites:
Understanding Evolution , a new site launched in February 2004 to meet the needs of K-12 teachers. The site provides an informal on-line course covering essential science content, as well as a searchable database of resources for the classroom.
Talk Origins Archive , a rich source of information about evolution and the evolution/creation controversy.
National Center for Science Education website, a nationally-recognized clearinghouse for information and advice on teaching evolution in the classroom.

is a Usenet newsgroup devoted to the discussion and debate of biological and physical origins. Most discussions in the newsgroup center on the creation/evolution controversy, but other topics of discussion include the origin of life, geology, biology, catastrophism, cosmology and theology. The Talk.Origins Archive is a collection of articles and essays, most of which have appeared in at one time or another. The primary reason for this archive's existence is to provide mainstream scientific responses to the many frequently asked questions ( FAQ s) that appear in the newsgroup and the frequently rebutted assertions of those advocating intelligent design or other creationist pseudosciences.

14. Evolutionary Theory: The Big Problems!
(1) There is no explanation of how life got started; (2) The fossil record has NO transitional forms ( missing link ) from one species to another.
The big issues!
Two of the biggest weaknesses of evolutionary theory are:
  • There is no adequate explanation for the origin of life from dead chemicals. Even the simplest life form is tremendously complex.
  • The fossil record , our only documentation of whether evolution actually occurred in the past, lacks any transitional forms, and all types appear fully-formed when first present. The evidence that "pre-men" (ape-men) existed is dubious at best. So called pre-man fossils turn out to be those of apes, extinct apes, fully man, or historical frauds.
