Most astronomers think that the universe was formed during an event called the Big Bang - a giant explosion which occured between 10 and 20 billion years ago. During the Big Bang all of the space, time, matter and energy in the universe was created. This giant explosion hurled matter in all directions and caused space itself to expand. As the universe cooled the material in it combined to form galaxies, stars, and planets.

You Have Been Selected

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) published his On the Origin of Species in 1859 and set forth his theory that animals evolved through variation and natural selection to those most fit to survive in particular environments. Here's a brief summary of some of its main ideas.
•Biological organisms and species do not have a fixed, static existence but exist in permanent states of flux and change.
•All life, from a biological point of view, takes the form of a struggle See More▼

The main conclusion here arrived at, and now held by many naturalists who are well competent to form a sound judgment, is that man is descended from some less highly organized form. The grounds upon which this conclusion rests will never be shaken, for the close similarity between man and the lower animals in embryonic development, as well as in innumerable points of structure and constitution, both high and of trifling importance, the rudiments which he retains, and the abnormal See More▼

The Ladder of Creation


Cosmonotes

While Darwin's theory is far from being complete, and some scientists would be the first to admit that, it does stimulate thinking and breeds new theories. That is its strength. Its weakness, besides being incomplete, is that it, like most of science, supplies no purposeful action for the underlying phenomena it seeks to explain. Isn't that as important of a question to ask as the questioning of religious dogma?
