Impact of Evolution on Human Thought (Evolution)
Evolution by definition of Webster dictionary is a gradual development of simple matters into more complex. When most of the people hear “evolution” it associates with development or history of the earth. History of the earth compiles of gazillions of steps. The very first step in our history is a birth of the earth, which took place over 4 billion years ago.
“Powerful telescopes reveal new stars coalescing from galactic dust, just as our sun did more than 4.5 billion years ago. The earth itself formed shortly thereafter, when rock, dust, and gas circling the sun condensed into the planets of our solar system. Fossils of primitive microorganisms show that life had emerged on earth by about 3.8 billion years ago (Teaching about evolution and the Natural of Science, ch. 1).”
Many people throughout the centuries have been trying to find explanations to the questions like: Why are surrounding us things the way they are?; why some type of animals resemble another one? It was hard to answer these questions without proper tools, experience and background knowledge. Even nowadays, not all questions are answered. Darwin was the first human who succeeded in responding to these questions. He was the first one who put discovered facts and knowledge available by his time in one big picture. In attempts to explain the history Darwin created the most outstanding achievement of human beings that had enormous impact of our thinking—evolutionary thinking. Ernest Mayer, in his book “One Long Argument” says following about impact of Darwin’s work on human thinking.
