Charles Darwin's theory of evolution helped humans understand their place among Earth's species. When it was first published, many did not believe it and found it offensive.
Darwin's theory states that all forms of life evolved from another. By studying finches, he established that animals adapt to fit their environments.
Deeper layers of fossils contain organisms that support the theory. Embryonic research shows numerous species are the same at certain stages of development.
Evolution has been proven with science numerous times since Darwin first published the theory. Biology, geology, and genetics helped create a better understanding.
Darwin's theory of evolution states that all species evolved from a common ancestor. Species adapt to their environment to increase their chance of survival.
