the important consequences that had for human evolution theory
Since I was a child, I have been interested in everything related to the flora and fauna of the world we live. The adventure to Galapagos Islands, which happened to take place firstly in the late 16th century, was confirmed later by Charles Darwin in the 19th century, and there was a consequence of it: the theory of the Evolution of Species.

However, he was able to observe the flora and the fauna of the place, and he came to the conclusion that the species he saw were able to adapt and modify their physical aspect to the changing world. Therefore, the strongest one is able to survive into a determined context. Moreover, he stated that present human beings were also the product of evolution – they modified themselves in order to achieve a new form. And this implied a common descent; in this case, simian species.
Although some detractors, the theory attracted the attention of many areas, including the Church, especially the Church of England which gave a mixed response to the theory. Darwin’s book was translated into a lot of languages and became a truly scientific text that has survived until today. His theory became very popular among pop culture, so he was the target of some cartoonists.
Darwin’s thought has had an enormous impact on different science fields. Scientists convinced themselves that the theory of evolution from a common descent and modifications to become adapted to the context was correct. During the 1930s and 1950s, the theory [...]
