Your textbok defines Evolution as CHANGE OVER TIME

Note to the teacher or user of these slides. Charles Darwin observed Adaptations or Small Random Chance changes Most Textbooks define evolution very early in the text before they take up mutations. If this is how your textbook handles these subjects then you will

start on the next slide. If you have already covered mutations then start on slide number 11. Evolution Definition Most Textbooks Define

Biological Evolution as CHANGE. A Change In What? The Change Must Be In the DNA Since, As You Will Learn

Later, The DNA Contains the Complete Instructions On How To Make A Duplicate Organism. If the DNA Contains Instructions Then It Must

Contain Information. If You Are To Understand Evolution Then It Is Essential That You Understand the Concept And Importance Of DNA Information Content.

Think Critically Consider These Letter Groups: 1. The Sky Is Blue. 2. The Sky Is Deep Blue. 3. The Sky Is Blue pndwrzeq. 4. The Sky Is pndwrzeq.

5. The Sky Is Blue. The Sky Is Blue. Which Letter Group Has the LEAST Information In It? Did You Pick Number 1? Why Not? It Has the Least

Number Of Letters. If You Picked Number 4 Why Did You Select It Over Number 2? They Both Have The Same Number Of Letters? Which Letter Group Has the

MOST Information In It? Did You Choose Number 5? It Has the Most Letters. Do Numbers 1, 3 and 5 Have the Same Amount Of Information? What Is the Correct Answer?

Conclusion Adding Letters And/or Words Does Not Increase Information Content Unless It Is Meaningful.

Charles Darwin observed Adaptations or Small Random Chance Changes in Organisms and ASSUMED that they could result in an amoeba becoming a man (A Large Change).

Your textbook and the Encyclopedia Britannica have the same letters, some of the same words and possibly even sentences and paragraphs. Does the fact that your textbook exists PROVE that the Encyclopedia

came about by random chance changes in your textbook? If ALL Species Developed From Earlier Life Forms Doesnt This Require LARGE MEANINGFUL

CHANGES in the DNA Information Content? Textbooks say Biological Evolution Is: CHANGE

ANY Change in the DNA This Causes A Problem Because: The Word Evolution Does Not Distinguish Between

a Small and a Large Change In the DNA. Think Critically: How Can This Problem Be Solved?

What Do the Terms Micro and Macro Mean? Can These Two Terms Be Used To Solve the Problem? Small Biological Changes are properly

called ADAPTATIONS and are examples of what can be called MICRO EVOLUTION MICRO-EVOLUTION Is HORIZONTAL

It is a change or adaptation at the species level. (Examples are the number of different types of: cats, dogs, cattle, birds, fish, etc.) . Changes Above The Species Level Require Large And Very Specific Meaningful

Changes In The DNA They Will Be Called Macro-Evolution. MACRO-EVOLUTION Is Vertical Man

(Has no proven examples.) Amoeba The Question Is Does Micro Evolution prove

Macro Evolution? RETURN to Slide Topic List
