Natural Evolution has STOPPED Posted 30 Jun 2009 00:10
I'm a believer in Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. In short, the theory goes like so:
If the reproduction process was perfect, the offspring would have 50% of its genes from each parent. But sometimes it is not perfect, and what can happen is that some genes mutate from errors in the cell division process or from a means of radiation. Thus, the mutated gene is different from the same gene each parent passed on. This means that the offspring with the mutated gene will pass on this mutated gene to future generations if it reproduces. Because each gene performs a function of some sort, a mutated gene can perform a different function previously unseen in the species.
Gene mutations have allowed species of animals to survive certain events in history, and hence, the species are more evolved (as they were able to survive). This is called "survival of the fittest".
