The sixth installment of my original series, "Discovering Religion". In this episode I examine the Theory of Evolution, or rather the mechanism of Natural Selection.
Many creationists look at the comfortable world around them and marvel at the amazing work of God's creation that, according to Ray Comfort, is responsible for such things as the banana. However, Creationists fail to realize that man's own hand is responsible for why many of the plants and animals that have come under our domestication look the way they do.
Over hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of years, man has been influencing the surrounding world by selecting traits within plants and animals deemed desirable to appear in each subsequent generation. For this reason our roses smell so fragrant, our corn is so sweet, how breeds of dog like the Chiwawa and Great Dane have come to exist, and even why the banana looks and tastes the way it does.
Darwin knew the extent of man's influence in the breeding and domestication of plants and animals. However, he went a step further and applied the same concept of selection to the natural world. Darwin's five year journey led him across the globe and to a very special chain of islands, known as the Galapagos. It was there Darwin began to piece together all the evidence he had collected, coming to realize the full implications of what Natural Selection meant in the grand scheme of existence and the origins of humankind.
For this discovery Darwin is heralded as one of the greatest scientific minds to ever exist, and by creationists he is viewed as almost an Anti-Christ figure. In this episode I hope to shed light on Darwin's discovery, initially made in the attempt to understand the mind of God, but in the process revealing the true nature of our origins.
