Some claim that Evolution is just a theory, as if it were merely an opinion.
My biology teacher, Mr. G, used to teach at a K - 12 Christian school many years back, and in his biology class, he taught evolution. Naturally, this made many parents of religious families upset, and he expected quite a lot…
This concise pamphlet provides answers to common objections to evolution, such as: If humans came from apes, why aren’t apes evolving into humans?; Only an intelligent designer could have made something as complex as an eye; The second law of thermo-dynamics proves that evolution is impossible; Evolution can’t account for morality; and more…
Which came first: the bird or the bird brain?
New research led by the American Museum of Natural History provides evidence that dinosaurs evolved the brainpower necessary for flight well before they actually took to the air as birds.
The researchers used high-resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanners to peer inside the braincases of more than two dozen specimens, including modern birds, one of the earliest known transitional birds—Archaeopteryx—and closely related non-avian dinosaurs like tyrannosaurs.

I feel so talentless when I see these thing that other people make.
so I did my scientific illustration final on whale evolution. This painting’s 3 feet long!
I did my best to illustrate every species as accurately as possible to the best of my ability. The sizes are vaguely correct but if they were actually to scale, the smaller species would be even smaller and the larger species would be even larger (basilosaurus is slightly bigger than a blue whale… and pakicetus is the size of a medium sized dog)
Kinda love this. Can we start a bidding war?
Awesome! I’ve always loved whales and dolphins!
D*** right. Evolution by natural selection is a theory, in the scientific sense of the word.
The kind of thing that need to be said again and again.
