I know what it is, but I'm awful at explaining things. This is a really thorough site that explains it, though. We learned about it in 7th grade science, I tihnk. uuu

I remember hearing about this in science. A guy named Darwin Something went to the Galapogos Island or someplace to study birds, and he made the theory of Survival of Characteristicts (I think...) It involved having aquired characteristics.

Welp, let me try to summarize it in the most basic way I can.


Most people think that evolution happens linearly, they think we evolved directly from monkeys or whatever. Of course that's not true, but we do share dna with monkeys because we DID evolve from primates, but not in the way people think. Basically, you adapt to the world around you. So you know how genetics can mutate, right? These mutations can be neutral, beneficial, or harmful to the creature/organism. If the change is harmful to the species, the offspring (children) will be less likely to survive, so the change won't last many generations as it cannot get passed on genetically of most of the offspring don't survive. If the change is helpful to the animal then the ones with the mutation will pass on the gene to their offspring. This is why evolution is so slow, it takes so long. Over a long time, there's a ton of changes, which is why we have different species. It's quite interesting.

And yes, you can definitely believe in evolution and be a Christian.

No, it's not a "theory" meaning it has no proof at all. There is a TONNNNN of evidence for evolution. The word "theory" in scientific terms means something different than "theory" in every day conversation. "Theory" scientifically does not mean "hypothesis." It is used to describe a phenomenon that cannot be completely proven, but has a lot of evidence.

Any questions? I did a horrible job explaing. This article might help you more: http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/life/evolution/evolution1.htm
