Charles darwin s background
Charles Darwin’s Background

  • Charles was born in Shrewsbury 1809. Darwin’s father was a doctor and his mother was the daughter of Josiah Wedgewood. Darwin was sent to study medicine at the age of 16 and when his family figured out that he really wasn’t a fan of a medical career; they transferred him to Cambrige so he could get trained for ministry.

Charles darwin s background1
Charles Darwin’s Background..

  • Charles was always fascinated with the study of insects and birds.

  • Charles was never fond of school, but he would love to hear historical lectures.

  • I think Darwin knew what he was meant to do, even as a little kid……..

Darwin s theory
Darwin’s Theory

  • For thousands and thousands of years people believe that the world was created by a supernatural being (god), due to the complexity of nature (mostly us humans and our minds). It is amazing how Charles Darwin was able to explain our existence using the Evolution of Nature.

  • When we think of “Evolution,” we must ask take a step back and ask ourselves… “what is evolving and why?”

Darwin s theory1
Darwin’s Theory

  • Darwin’s theory of evolution is based off of five key points.

  • Species have great fertility. Are able to make offspring that can grow into adulthood.

  • Populations remain approximately the same size with some fluctuations.

  • There are limited resources but the amounts are relatively consistent.

  • From these top three investigation, it could be inferred that in such an environment, individuals would struggle to survive.

Darwin s theory cont
Darwin’s Theory Cont.

  • When sexually reproducing , no two individuals are identical. There is many variation.

  • And much of this variation is heritable.

  • These two points can be inferred to: that only the “ best” characteristics would survive. These traits will be passed on to their offspring.

Quote of darwin
Quote of Darwin

  • “Although I am fully convinced of the truth of the views given in this volume I by no means expect to convince experienced naturalists whose minds are stocked with a multitude of facts all viewed, during a long course of years, from a point of view directly opposite to mine. But I look with confidence to the future to young and rising naturalists, who will be able to view both sides of the question with impartiality.” (Charles Darwin)

Quotes of darwin
Quotes of Darwin

  • “In scientific investigations, it is permitted to invent any hypothesis and, if it explains various large and independent classes of facts, it rises to the rank of a well-grounded theory.”(Charles Darwin)

  • “Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system- with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.” (Charles Darwin)

Meaning of evolution
Meaning of Evolution

  • Biology: change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift.

Darwin s finches
Darwin’s Finches

  • One way Darwin really found out about evolution was with the Finches. Darwin found these Finches very interesting especially because of their beak shape.

  • What Darwin found out was that each beak shape was adapted to their habitat.
