Here's a biology project on evolution: evidence for evolution, and evidence against various misconceptions regarding it. Dedicated to the fabulous Dr. Zipko..

Instrumental from "Forever" by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, & Eminem

LYRICS:
Chorus:
Charles Darwin started it all,
He understood how species came to be,
Natural selection being a cause,
Changing life forever man, ever man, ever man.
Humans evolving from fish,
Arthropods developing jointed limbs,
Doctor Z teaching it all,
Changing life forever man, ever man, ever man.

Last name Darwin,
First name Charles,
Toured around the world, the Galapagos Isles,
Studied different species like mockingbirds and tortoise,
He noticed variations on and island-to-island basis.
Evolution making life better? h*ll no!
Most mutations will harm, we know!
Cambrian explosion made the body plans, lego,
Species running out left and right, Dino!
Grab the handout Dr. Z all gave us,
Origin of species function like a prenup.
Pollenpeepers segregate to their new islands,
Evolution making them adapt to their new climates.
Genotypes, phenotypes, causing all types of changes,
Beaks growing big and large, others sizes ranges.
Birds fleeing habitats to free them from predation,
Period 6 Bio class loving our presentation!
Ch-Ch-Chernow!

(Chorus)

Life used to be simpler,
Genes rearrange, big change.
Bacteria, Archaea, Eukarya, domain name.
Homeotic genes similarities immense,
Comparative anatomy, more evidence.
Barcode of life them genes and DNA,
Mitochondrial segments,
Not nuclear that's the way.
When a species extinct, they can trace its phylogeny,
Uh what up Pepsin Petrella? What? Nada.
Now I burn, sizzle, and fry like doctor Z-man,
Burgess Shale's got fossils for all the body plans.
You would think the explosion made vertebrate when it doesn't,
Like thinking mutations are fly no they freaking wasn't!
Look at all the different species.
They're all interrelated - ancestry,
The fossil records got gaps; yeah that's a fact,
Not all life fossilizes, skeptics how about that.
Gaps in the record is nothing more than data lacked,
You can't forget transitional forms - Cladoselache,
Archaeopteryx, Picaya fossils still intact.
Changing life forever man, now hit that track.

(Chorus)

Ok, hello I'm a protist,
Nice of you to notice,
Unicellular organism, membrane bounded nucleus.
Um, let me shift your focus,
Whataya think of this diss?
Evolution -- can't observe or test this?
Check out Berkeley's site, because they couldn't be more right.
Evolution's studied in the real world, day and night,
Like a silent ghost, changing slowly, out of sight.
But why should I cry? Mother father bonsai!
Fruit flies thrive, even when ash surrounds them,
Kapookas in the house -- making smaller populations.
Loser males get the girls, new alleles in the system,
These new genes lead to diversification.
Evolution's observed in the middle of the lava,
Flies evolve faster cause the populations smaller.
Shhh, there's Doctor Z and Ryguy,
Chipping on the green oh damn they look super fly.

(Chorus)

There they go, thinking
Organisms "try" to adapt, so
nuts they go, natural selection leads to adaptation yo.
Starting millions of years ago,
life initially evolved real slow.
BIO! Ain't no joke,
Neither is evolution oh no.
Natural selection involves tinkering with genes in the pool,
Any species "trying" to adapt will only look like a fool.
Populations evolve real cool,
Learning all about it at school,
Changing all the traits of these types
Is not just selection old school.
The passion to evolve is ignited,
by selective forces that slight it.
This shizz is exactly what the Z-man talks about when he implies it.
We're talking bout a class that's thrilling
That's stays inside 121 just chilling, and
Keeps fulfilling, cause we are willing to classify organisms,
Rewind it.
What up C Darwin look at what you started so how's it taste?
How you saw life change over time with a face so fine it was crazy great.
We're bilateral beings so in case you wanna take our place,
You have gotta evolve real fast to win the evo arms race,
So great.

(Chorus)
