The assertions by Darwin that life emerged as a result of evolution has continued to elicit varied reactions in the scientific field. Darwin intimates that the foundation of evolution was based on natural selection. Darwin’s arguments challenge the creation narrative undermines the religious authority and propagates a discussion into the origin of the human species. Dennett denounces the contention of Darwin by noting that the natural selection process is characterized by algorithmic, mechanical or mindless establishments. According to Darwin, life manifested without the existence of skylocks.

Biology has a basis in engineering because it involves the study of functions, designs, construction, as well as operations. Darwin believes that life is guided by various processes. The evolution story has been distorted because of inadequate scientific proof on the theoretical frameworks presented. Gradualism and adaptationism are some of the arguments put forward by Darwin as components of natural selection. However, the two components have no scientific basis through which they can be explained. Most of Darwin’s arguments are not considered to have scientific alignment though some accept the details as components that inform the basis of scientific knowledge.

Response to a Discussion Posting

Darwin’s evolution account is an instrumental narrative that provides a basis over which several issues can be explained. I agree with you when you state that Darwin struggled to argue his case by denoting that the origin of man was as a result of evolution. Evolution involves the examination of empirical data that can be tested and results drawn concerning the various transformations. However, the findings do not provide prospectives answers that determine how certain things came into being. I agree that with you when you argue that Darwin’s narrative concerning the ‘tree of life’ is devoid of scientific proof.’ Darwin believes that living organisms can evolve over time through the laws of nature.
