Section I: Edition
Research Started: June 1, 2004
In this Edition, I added a few more remarks by Darwin and included more of his research. I also added in a few remarks on the evidence of Evolution by such scholars as Thomas Malthus and Thomas Henry Huxley. Also, I added a section on the matter of sexual selection, as an evidence on behalf of the theory of natural selection. With that, I present an improved book of "Evolution: Origins of Life."

It is no hard argument that in the scientific field of Evolution, there are countless articles or writings on the research of scientists. Compared with other obligations I have to fulfill, I can only dedicate a certain amount of time to fully understanding the evidences for Evolution and how they relate to each other. In this Edition 1.0 of Evolution: Origins of Life, there is one concept that I will enlarge upon and answer as full as I can with evidence, insomuch that the reader is left with no doubt that Evolution is an accurate means of explaining the origins of life. This one concept is that of the Derivative Theory, or the belief that the modern species in our world in which we see them, came about through existence through a succession of minor variations of their progenitors, or older species -- and that these adaptations of modern species exist as far as the laws of Natural Selection are concerned. This is the only theory which I desire to prove in this Edition of this book. In further editions, I will probably enlarge upon the evidence of the Derivative Theory, and discuss other concepts, such as Genetics, Cosmology and the Big Bang, and the origins of the first life forms on Earth. Though I have studied each of these fields to some degree, where I can feel confident that the natural laws alone can explain our current state of being, I do not feel that I am knowledgeable enough in these fields to write chapters on them. And so, with that note, I leave the reader to explore the evidences which have led Evolution scientists to believing in the their theory.
