An unknown matter within evolutionary biology (one of the “gaps” if you will), the question of why insects that are poor mimics of more dangerous creatures still avoid getting eaten despite their poor mimicry has been answered.
It was answered by a group of Canadian scientists. Please click here for the full story from the BBC…
…oh and ***SPOILER ALERT*** – God done it is NOT the answer!
It has been confirmed from a build up of evidence that a section of the human X chromosome derives from interbreeding with Neanderthals.
Not so very long ago, we shared this planet with several other species of human, all of them clever, resourceful and excellent hunters, so why did only Homo sapiens survive?
Some evidence has been revealed that the larger mammalian brain evolved as a result of the development of the sense of smell.
… yet more evidence for evolution and the eventual development of our own brains!
One of my favourite comebacks that I read on a blog recently was when an atheistic scientist was talking to a creationist and the creationist stated “I don’t come from no monkey (sic)!” the scientist said, “Actually I’m going further back and showing you that you are descended from a fish!”
According to him Humanity is not a product of evolution…which is random…
Firstly we ARE undoubtably the product of evolution, the random mutation of genetic material and it’s non-random survival of the resulting phenotypes.
Maybe he should stick to what he is good at, hiding paedophile priests justified by divine authority to protect his own power?
A shameful display of mindless indoctrination on behalf of Islam! Read more
Is the daffodil’s trumpet a newly evolved flower part?
More clues and evidence for evolution, but far more pretty!
Many people will have noticed that a question on the Biology GCSE paper from 2009 recently surfaced which apparently gave equal weight to Natural Selection, Lamarkianism, Intelligent Design and Creationism.
This is something that the exam board, AQA, were heavily criticized for at the time; however they have confirmed that the 2010 paper did not contain such such a question. They have also stated that “the subject team has confirmed that future exam papers will not contain any questions on creationism or intelligent design.”
It’s great that the exam board realized their mistake and corrected it (something that we encourage!), but it shows just how careful and vigilant we have to be to protect children from misleading and disproven “theories” from the science curricula!
