Darwin's Theory of Evolution - Natural Selection While Darwin's Theory of Evolution is a relatively young archetype, the evolutionary worldview itself is as old as antiquity. Ancient Greek philosophers such as Anaximander postulated the development of life from non-life and the evolutionary descent of.

Darwin's theory of natural selection states that nature selects organisms that have features favorable for their survival, while eliminating inferior species. Natural selection is a key to the origin of new species from the existing ones.

The following article provides information about this theory. Charles Darwin was a British naturalist who proposed the theory of biological evolution by natural selection.

However, due to time and geographical diversity, changes occurred to allow for organisms to adapt better to their environments. Simplifying and paraphrasing from Darwin's book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, and adding current interpretations, the main points of his theory are: all life came from one or a few kinds of simple organisms; new species arise gradually from preexisting species; the result of competition among species is extinction of the less fit; gaps in the fossil record account.
