How did the discovery of DNA prove that Darwin’s theory of evolution was correct and how does it change the way we view evolution today and into the future?
Darwin’s theory of evolution was survival of there fitness meaning how well they adapted and survived in their environment, the Galapagos finches all had different types of beaks based on their environment and how they needed to use them. The discovery of DNA proves that Darwin’s theory of evolution is correct because species have adapted over the years and mutations have been made in their DNA code based on how well it will help them in their environment and helping them survive. Darwin’s theory changed the way we view evolution today and into the future because before Darwin’s theory many believed that it was just god who created a new species and his theory had everyone question their beliefs and what was true and what was not his theory proved that we are all related to species we may not think we are such as fish. His theory has opened up peoples minds to full possibilities and now we have come up with ways to cross breed cells and organisms to expand into more species and in the future the mutations that are happening to the species that are un wanted we can eventually remove. The sequence in the DNA strand is what makes all of us different and before Darwin’s theory we would have not believed that we could be so close to other species for example how humans are only 1% different in their DNA than chimps. In Conclusion, Darwin’s theory has changed the thoughts of many people in this world and is one of the main starting points for all of science and evolution today.
