In his 2001 book Promise Ahead: A Vision of Hope and Action for Humanity's Future author and activist Duane Elgin employs the metaphor of development stages to describe human evolution from its inception to the [...]
Endocasts of the Homo erectus reveal the presence of the Broca's area-a part of the brain that is linked to communication by speech.
However, an intense conflict over religious morality and the development of professionalism in science have led to the possibility of the evolvement of such revolutionary theories as the ones proposed by Darwin in On the [...]
On the other hand, modern humans developed a spear that was lighter and used it to throw the weapon to a distance of forty-two meters, a clear advantage over the Neanderthals.
As a result of this, it is evident that memes and genes play important roles in the mental development of an infant.
Thus, in his article, the author promotes the idea that a multivariate model of developing the state in the context of ecological views is most appropriate.
Therefore, the replacement theory is based on the idea that the modern type of human beings could evolve only in Africa.
The concept of biological species defines species as populations that can interbreed and are isolated from other species reproductively, thus making different groups that are unable to interbreed with such other species.
The creative ability of a human being is a powerful mechanism shaping the universe. That is why the relationship between the human and the design is a state of mutual impact.
The evolutionary theory relies heavily on Charles Darwin's observations and their influences on the postulation of the theory of evolution and the concept of natural selection.
In general, the development of society helps people to increase the effectiveness of how their brains address different challenges that emerge in their lives. There are many factors that contribute to the different stages of [...]
The validity of this suggestion is best illustrated with respect to the scientifically proven fact that, as time goes on, the human brain continues to evolve, in the sense of becoming ever more adapted to [...]
Therefore, this idea can be used to prove the point that in their traditional form, the two philosophies oppose each other.
While the crux of Darwin's argument is that no intelligent supervision is necessary for the creation of a seemingly endless level of complexity associated with living creatures, those who derive their knowledge from the Book [...]
The evolution of different beak sizes/types ensured that up to 15 different species of finches could coexist in the islands. In the experiment, we simulated natural selection in finches, where the 'beak' type determined the [...]
Some genetic changes deal with the problem of the time lag and help with adjustment to the environment. Humans can adapt due to the ability of the brain to participate in one's learning process.
Therefore, they analyzed the process of growing a fossil Neanderthal that lived in Belgium 500,000 years ago and found out that it also grew up faster than a modern human do.
Although the book "Why Evolution is True" uses a wide range of concepts such as fossil records, vestigial structures, embryology, biogeography, and suboptimal design to support the process of evolution, the outstanding fact is that [...]
This has subsequently led to the creation of the eugenics a discipline that focused on the improvement of the human qualities by applying the breeding techniques the humanity had already been familiar with.
Another feature of the skull of Homo neanderthalensis was the possession of a protuberant mid-facial region, which was an outstanding feature that differentiated the species from the rest of the sapiens.
The environment conditions the appearance of the unique peculiarities of the body and behavioral patterns needed to help a sample to survive and guarantee its further evolution.
The reader is able to use this vivid substantiation of claims to understand the author's need to introduce the aspect of God who is at the center of these natural happenings.
Although there are many theories which explain the origin of the earth, Darwin's theory evokes strong responses due to the fact that it opposes religion and it does not meet all the requirements of a [...]
In the context of this essay, nature signifies the effect of genes in the DNA structure that are transferable from a parent to the offspring.
Overall, it is possible to say that the ideas of these people were largely based on the misuse of scientific methods and lack of anthropological knowledge.
Although the given theory is often misinterpreted as the idea that only the species that are the most physically strong can survive through the changes in the environment, it is clear that Darwin had the [...]
Wallace indirectly contributes to the theory of evolution, which was linked to the natural selection of the organisms by Charles Darwin.
A study of some of the fossil evidence using some of the modern tools shows a clear pattern of evolutionary change that make it easy to appreciate that evolution could be true.
The major theme of the article is the justification of Darwin's evolution theory. The theory is based on the assumption that species are static, but the changes in species are very rapid, and, thus, the [...]
What can also result in a mismatch disease is a rapid development of science and the use of new medicines in treating diseases that human body is not yet used to because evolution is a [...]
It is a very important factor as it helps to create new species and serves as a source of variation. That is why it is possible to speak about the process of appearing of new [...]
Most of the views about forbidden archeology are contained in a 1993 book titled "Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race".
When it comes to discussing the discursive significance of the Darwinian theory of evolution in general, and the 'survival of the fittest' principle in particular, it is always crucially important to understand that they are [...]
Wilson states that an individual can either acquire traits such as altruism and selflessness from a group in a way that enables other people to develop mannerisms that make them prosper at the expense of [...]
The authors believe that the regulation of genomic technologies should support the interests of various stakeholders who can be affected by these innovations. This is one of the main limitations that should be considered.
The following is a description of some of the similarities and differences that exist between humans and chimpanzees and the most significant traits that each possesses taking into consideration the above four traits used to [...]
The objective of the developmental paleoneurology from which the study borrows, is to identify the changes in the brain ontogeny and to make inferences from the mechanisms that create these changes.
The original article challenges the evolutionary theory of romantic jealousy and states that there are no differences in the responses of men and women to different types of infidelity.
Furthermore, in this paper I would like to discuss the territoriality of both human beings and non-human primates, in other words, the strategies of establishing and defending one's territory.
Psychoanalytic theorists perceive that behavior is purely superficial characteristic, and the analyses of the symbolic meaning of behavior and the in-depth functioning of the mind is prerequisite for understanding development.
The central theme of anthropology is to trace the development that has occurred to the human race from the past to the present in different geographical locations.
When anthropologists realized that technology and the ability of the human mind exhibit different characteristics over time, they had to take a different approach in the quest to find the steps of evolution of mankind.
Therefore, natural selection can lead to the extinct of a specific population or individual. In brief, natural selection, mutation, gene flow and genetic drift are evolution forces, which determine the viability or continuation of a [...]
The aim of this paper is to reconstruct a socioecology of hominin concerning the latest findings from the species of Praeanthropus Dimorphicus and the species of Praeanthropus Monomorphicus.
Differential reproduction is linked with the way in which organisms adapt to the environment such that if the adaptive traits of these organisms are transmitted to the next generation, the behavioral and physical traits of [...]
Islanders that participate in kula exchange are supposed to remain involved in this practice for the duration of their lifetime 'once in the kula, always in the kula': "The principle 'once in the Kula, always [...]
However, this will certainly be possible if a sample is taken from the micro cephalic and Homo sapiens with some form of pathology that is known in order to compare. So it can be said [...]
Nonhuman primate conservation programs are characterized by numerous positive and negative sides: lemurs get benefits from these programs in the form of protection from other habitants of the same territory and legal empowerment of local [...]
From the available sources, it is with no doubt that Darwin was not the founder of this evolution theory as generally believed by many people.
The key advantage of the Levallois flake was that it was easy to reuse owing to its symmetry. They had to determine the right amount of heat needed to create the adhesive because excessive amounts [...]
Due to the fact that humans were largely dependent on cultivated crops, domestication of plants and animals was the next step in the development of civilization.
The author also tries to establish the relationship between human facial attractiveness and the genetic diversity that falls within as well as outside the MHC.
In conclusion, Hardin writes that perhaps a simple answer to these population problems is the use of need for necessity and mutual agreement.
In a similar manner, Scheck argues that the family members in the reality show as well as the general audience serve to open an addict's eyes to the realities of drug abuse.
However, the study revealed that simple human societies pass various survival techniques to their offspring especially in resource sharing and general way of life.
Hominids are the representatives of the biological family, who have been around our planet for about 7 million years, and orangutans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and humans are considered to be its members; these species have different [...]
It is commonly known by the phrase, "survival of the fittest", which means that only the species that have well adapted to their environment, is well suited to survive in that habitat.
