With this blog, I do not wish to battle those who still ignore the mountain of evidence behind this now indisputable idea, nor do I find it necessary to go into great detail laying out the proofs and processes that have gotten us to where we are today. That task has been well taken care of by many scientists in as simple or as detailed of terms as anyone would wish to find. What I want to do with my Evolution 101, is to just take a moment to summarize some of the main ideas that have been found to date and are relevant to the questions that a philosophical belief system will ask. That's my goal.
In Evolution 101, I've laid out simple definitions for 17 things I think are essential to keep in mind about the history and findings of evolution. What do you think? Are these items really important? Are any of them new to you? Do any of the definitions need to be clarified? Supported? What else would you include? Let me know in the comments below what you would do if you were laying the groundwork for an Evolutionary Philosophy - which I'll get to soon enough.
