They observed these mutations in both plants and animals. They noticed that plants and animals could pass a new characteristic onto their offspring suggesting evolution. If these mutations help the offspring to survive then the offspring will have a better chance of passing those traits down to its offspring. When this happens over a millions of years it enables nature to create many diverse life forms. (Wysong 266-267) Charles Darwin took a slightly different belief. His theory called “Darwinism” were based mostly upon the concept of natural selection and mutations; he explored the two through experimentation and recorded all information in his book “The Origin of Species”, written in 1859 (Creation Science).
There are a couple of things that give good evidence to evolution. Macroevolution is not a
