Evolution Reaction Paper

After finish watching the movie "Darwin's Dangerous Idea", our biology teacher asks us to write a reaction paper based on each section in the movie. There are ten parts in the movie, which include: Darwin's Observations from the Beagle, Humming Birds, Darwin's Idea of Natural Selection, HIV Evolution, Complex Organs: made/evolve, Eye Evolution, God versus Natural Selection including Humans, Can God Fit in Science, Society Control of Church and Book Publishing.

The first section in the movie is Darwin's Observations from the Beagle. As Darwin was on the Beagle from 1831 to 1836 and traveled South America coastline, he found different finches on different climate on different islands. Why God put different species

The next section is about the eye evolution. Human eyes make possibly have been acquired by gradual selection of slight but useful deviation. In different organisms, they have eyes with different structures that make eyes can look further or not. Blood vessels and nerve vessels in front of eyes connect with the brain to show the image the eyes see. Eyesight helps animals with finding food or mates. Nowadays, when a lot of human use their eyes too much on books, computers, studies, the eyes get shortsighted, but human can get out of it be using glasses or go to an operation.

Move on to the next section, we have God versus natural selection. This shows us that nature can do everything. Nature by itself unaided by God can even make eyes. People at Darwin's time said that God create everything, so why did God put different organism at different places? Why some organism disappeared, the other one can survive? If like these people idea, God created perfect organisms, so why didn't some of them survive? The people who follow God couldn't answer these questions while natural selection could explain all. The bigoted people at that day, who believe in the fallacy
