- Evolution Through Natural Selection - 657 words
Evolution Through Natural Selection Children often play a game called telephone, where one child whispers a statement into another child's ear, and the statement is passed on to other children; at the end of the game the last child will repeat the statement that was told to him or her. The majority of the time, the statement said would be completely different than the original one. This is an example of evolution through natural selection; where somewhere along the life span of the statement, it was modified, and the modified statement was passed on to form a new statement. Charles Darwin stated that, "individuals are the unit of selection; the struggle for existence is a matter among indivi ...

... ible for God's existence--their own selves. Consider, for example, the human body. It is composed of 30+ different kinds of cells, totaling over `100 trillion' cells when all added together to make up the human adult.. These cells come in all different sizes and shapes, with different functions and life expectancies. For example, some cells (e.g., male spermatozoa) are so small that 20,000 would fit inside a capital "O" from a standard typewriter, each being only 1/20th mm long. Some cells, put end-to-end, would make only one inch if 6,000 were assembled together. Yet all the cells of the human body, if set end- to-end, would encircle the earth over 200 times. Even the largest cell of th ...

... to the cell, it is the information center and contains DNA. DNA stores genetic information that is passed to one generation to the next. The DNA in a cell is attached to special proteins. These proteins are called chromosomes. Chromosomes contain genetic information that is passed through generations. The nucleus of a cell tend to be about two to five micrometers in diameter. Surrounding the nucleus there are two membranes called the nuclear envelope. The nuclear envelope contains dozens of small pores, through which molecules move in and out of the nucleus. In most nuclei, there is a small region called the nucleolus. It is made up of RNA and proteins. In the nucleolus, ribosomes are ma ...

- Mammals - 1,422 words
Mammals Mammals have existed for the past 200 million years. According to fossil evidence, they evolved from a mammal like reptile group. These reptile ancestors were small, active carnivores. They were equipped with several specialized types of teeth. Their limbs were positioned more directly under the trunk as opposed to spreading out to the sides. Both of these characteristics are prominent features of mammals. For the past 70 million years mammals have been the dominant animals in terrestrial ecosystems. Because they are warm-blooded, they have an advantage over their reptilian ancestors. Despite their size differences, the great blue whale and the pygmy shrew have something in common: t ...

- Muscular System - 408 words
Muscular System Do you think muscles are important? Do you have an idea of what they are made of? Well, here is some food for thought: your muscles make up forty percent of your body weight. If you like that interesting fact maybe you'll learn some more. The muscular system has three main types of muscles. These are: smooth, skeletal and cardiac muscles. Your smooth muscles are what line most hollow organs and these are involuntary muscles. If you are wondering what involuntary muscles are, these muscles automatically move without having to think about it. Some examples of smooth muscles are your stomach, intestines and bladder. Skeletal muscles are muscles that are connected to your limbs a ...

... approximately every 24 hours on its axis. From where do we get our month? It comes from the moon circling the earth once approximately every 28 days. From where does our year come? It takes the earth approximately 365.26 days to go around the sun. `But where do we get our week?' There is no purely natural explanation for the week. The explanation, instead, is found in Exodus 20:11 (cf., Exodus 31:17): "for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day...." The week is an entirely universal phenomenon. Yet there is no purely natural explanation for it. Little wonder Isaiah wrote (40:26): "Lift up your eyes on high, and behold wh ...

By fourteen, girls breast growth is completed and at fourteen and a half, their pubic hair growth is completed. Boys major puberty changes occur a little later than girls. First, their testes begin to enlarge at the age of eleven and a half. Pubic hair appears and the penis begins to enlarge at twelve, and then the height spurt begins. Their spermarche occurs at thirteen. At the age of fourteen, they reach the peak of their height spurt, their facial hair begins to grow, and their voice begins to get deeper. After this, the growth of their penis is complete. Then, at fifteen their pubic hair gro ...

By Lambert Titus Parker. May 19 1987. (GEnie Spaceport) Osteoporosis: a condition characterized by an absolute decrease in the amount of bone present to a level below which it is capable of maintaining the structural integrity of the skeleton. To state the obvious, Human beings have evolved under Earth's gravity "1G". Our musculoskeleton system have developed to help us navigate in this gravitational field, endowed with ability to ...
