The theory of evolution and creation are the same and different ina lot of ways. Lamarck was the first person to come up with a theory for evolution. There are a lot of different creation stories in the Native American The theory of evolution means that all plants and animals developed from earlier forms by hereditary communications of slight changes in the production or generations. The word evolution means ” The historical development of a biological group (as a race or species) (Webster’s dictionary).
The origin of the theory of evolution began with the French naturalist named Lamarck. This happened in around 1809. He said that the more an animal used its body parts the stronger they got. He also said that the less a animal used its body parts the smaller or weaker it became. He thought that these traits became hereditary. Later scientist disproved this theory when more was learned more about genes and how they work.
50 years later Darwin came up with a theory that most scientist believe it to this day. this is called the theory of evolution. His book was called ‘The Origin of Specie.’ ; Alfred R. Wallace, came out with a theory that was almost identical to Darwin’s theory.
Darwin’s theory was much more developed and better known. For example Darwin pointed out that farmers would take certain qualities from two different plants and mix them together and it would produce the desired plant. He believed this happened in nature also and he called it ‘the survival of the fittest’; or ‘natural selection.’ ; There are a lot of different creation stories and they are the same in that since but they are all different. The creation stories start at the beginning of the world. The creation myth I’ve chosen to wright about is based on what native Americans believe. Here is a quote from chief Weneinock of Yakima ‘God created the Indian country and it was like he spread out a big blanket.
Discuss Evolution Theory according to Darwin In 1838, Charles Darwin put together his Theory on Evolution. Darwin tried to prove his theory that man was the center of the ... not God. He believed that evolution was gradual on both humans and on organisms. Darwin believed in something called natural selection; meaning genes ...
He put the Indians on it… and that was the time the river started to run. Then god created fish in the river and put deer in the mountains… then the creator gave us Indian life; we walked and as soon as we saw the game and the fish we knew they were made for us. We grew and multiplied as a people.’ ; (Taylor Ph. D.
) Another creation story is from the Iroquoian mythology. They thought sky women gave birth to twins. Their names were Iouskehaand Tawiscaron. Iouskeha was the good- minded twin, he was born normal and he made plants, animals, birds and mankind.
Tawiscaron the evil — minded twin was born out of his mother’s armpit, killing her. He also controlled the destructive forces and tried to destroy his brother’s work. In one last battle, the bad twin died and the good twin went to the Upper World to rule as the Master of Life. Creation is what I most believe in because I have a reason or purpose for being here. I’m not sure why I’m here.
maybe I will learn later in life. Even though my genes say what I am physically, they don’t say what I am mentally or emotionally. I believe there is a god. He put me here for a reason.
It’s like my creation story how they talk about the ” Good-Twin’; being the ‘Master of Life.’ ; I think there is a god and he helps me through my hard and good times. Kinda like a good friend, he’s there when I’m down and when I am feeling good.
