  The Talk.Origins Archive: Evolution FAQs
However, the mechanisms of evolution are less well understood, and it is these mechanisms that are described by several theories of evolution.
Evolution does not proceed from any basic randomness, although genetic changes are not coupled to selection and may be characterised as "random" relative to selection pressures, nor do they anticipate the needs of a species.
One of the favorite anti-evolutionist challenges to the existence of transitional fossils is the supposed lack of transitional forms in the evolution of the whales.

 Five Major Misconceptions about Evolution
What they don't appreciate is that this rate of evolution is all that is required to produce the diversity of all living things from a common ancestor.
Evolution makes predictions about what we would expect to see in the fossil record, comparative anatomy, genetic sequences, geographical distribution of species, etc., and these predictions have been verified many times over.
Evolution is supported by a wide range of observations throughout the fields of genetics, anatomy, ecology, animal behavior, paleontology, and others.

 Human Evolution
Evolution works best when a small population of a species becomes isolated and faced suddenly with new hazards.

Strepsirhines share all of the basic characteristics of primates, although their brains are not particularly large or complex and they have a more elaborate and sensitive olfactory system (sense of smell) than do other primates.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Evolution
Trying to harmonize the Lamarckian and Darwinian factors of evolution, he was among the first to defend the so-called neo-Lamarckian theory, which insists upon the direct influence of the environment and the inheritance of newly acquired characters.
According to him progressive evolution required intrinsic laws of developmnent, which, however, as he added, were to be sought for in molecular forces.
The bones of the fore-limbs are not movable independently of one another, being bound together by means of tendons–.Other remarkable vestigial structures are the teeth of the Arctic right whale, which never penetrate the gums and are reabsorbed before birth, the upper teeth of the ox, the milk teeth and the eyes of the mole.

 Evolution Happens
The theory of evolution is the only explanation for the origin of life that accounts for the fossil, anatomical, molecular (including genetic), behavioral and geological evidence.
This is because evolution explains all of the evidence far better than all other proposed explanations for the origin of life.
People who assert that the Second Law of Thermodynamics makes the evolution of life from simpler to more complex forms impossible, either do not understand the Second Law or are intentionally misleading their audience.

Evolution: The Origin and Subsequent Elaboration of the 'Chromosomal' Hypothesis of Hybrid Sterility
The codiscoverer of evolution by means of natural selection, Alfred Russel Wallace, held rigidly to the theory as originally formulated, while Darwin was more flexible.

 The Evolution of Truth
One of the key evidences presented for creation is the recurring appearance of the Divine proportion, or golden section, throughout the design of the human body and other life forms.
Other evidences of creation by God are shown through numerous illustrations of mankind's greatest "inventions" that, curiously, existed first in nature and examples of natural selection and adaptation that seem more unnatural than natural.
Many other links and resources are provided on creation and evolution, the Fibonacci series and golden section, DNA and genetics, the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI) and our spirituality and ability to know God.

Human evolution is a puzzle made up of thousands of fossil pieces, and the Chart of Human Evolution (below) shows the major pieces of that puzzle arranged in a likely solution.
But before technology could have much impact, our evolution was also helped along by the human tendency to migration and the resulting geographic isolation of different hominid groups — documented in Hominid Fossil Sites and Patterns of Homind Dispersal.
Skulls are particularly valuable as evidence for the evolution of The Hominid Brain.
