Also question is, what scientific claim does Darwin challenge?
The theory of evolution challenged the idea that God is the designer of the universe and that the beauty, order and complexity of the universe is evidence of this (the design argument ).
Additionally, what type of research did Charles Darwin do? It was his research on natural selection during that voyage that formed the basis of his later work. He examined all the areas he visited, including South America, the Galapagos Islands, Africa and islands in the Pacific Ocean and made detailed records of his observations.
Accordingly, does evolution follow the scientific method?
Evolution does not attempt to address the origin of the universe. The scientific method is based on observation, experimentation and verification and these have consistently supported the Darwinian theory of natural selection.
What is the concept of natural selection?
natural selection. The process by which organisms that are better suited to their environment than others produce more offspring. As a result of natural selection, the proportion of organisms in a species with characteristics that are adaptive to a given environment increases with each generation.
