h4rmonys thread on Turkey banning certain aspect of Evolution in their schools got me thinking about the topic. My knowledge is pretty slim as it's not something I was particulary interested in, I know the basics but I'm sure you could go into the biology, bio chemistry, fossils, etc etc pretty extensively. So the main argument is that of survival of the most adaptable, for example a giraffes neck is the length it is due to it streching for food over hundreds of years sort of thing. So our genes and physical attributes change to adapt to our evironment. Also there is natural selection, which sounds like a kind of survival of the fittest idea, or survival of the vainest however you look at it. So can somebody run me through the main arugments and why it's apparently such a sound theory?
