Darwin’s Theory and Utile and Ineptitude Human Life

Charles_Robert_DarwinOn the 210th Birth Anniversary of Charles Robert Darwin

It was Monday morning, the second period’s school-bell made me alert to reshuffle the class. After looking at the settled lesson-plan for a week, I entered the classroom with new zeal and confidence to won the battle of understanding among fifty different heads of standard ten.

Introduction of chapter begun as “Darwin Theory and Evolution.” Suddenly, one student drawn my attention with the most common concept on Darwin theory-” Sir, is man descended from the ape!” (Suspicious tone it was!).

Though it is simple as suspicious but, it awaken my mind from dormant stage to re-think on it.

On the 12th of Feb. 2019, is the 210th birth anniversary of English naturalist, geologist and popularly known as ‘Father of Evolution’ in Biology named Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882).

Darwin is remembered for his theory of evolution which he published on his famous book titled “The origin of Species” in the year 1859 (24th, November). Reviewing Darwin Theory we can summarized it with following major points:

  1. A species is a population of organisms that interbreeds and fertile progeny.
  2. Living organisms have descended with modification/variations from species that lived before them.
  3. Natural selection explains how the process of evolution can happened
    • more organisms are produced than can survive or fit because of limited resources.
    • organisms struggle for life, there is competition for resources.
    • individuals within a population show variations in their traits and some of these traits passed on to offspring.
    • fit enough individuals are more likely to survive and reproduce.
    • species whose individuals are not best adapted survive others become extinct.
    • the variations when accumulated over a long period of time, lead to the origin of a new species.

Relating with theory of evolution, British scientist J.B.S. Haldane, in the year 1929 gave a concept of ‘origin of life on earth’. He suggested that, life must be developed from the simple inorganic molecules which were present on earth soon after it was formed.

After long-hours of pondering on above mentioned two concepts or theories which directly or indirectly related with the creation of living diversity along with most intelligent animal called Homo sapiens (Human), with my own findings and knowledge came up with some unuttered or unresolved queries as follows :

  1. How did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?
  2. Without any intelligent design, how did the DNA code originate?
  3. How did complex cellular form of organisms originate?
  4. How did sex originate? What is the position of human egg and sperm according to Darwin’s theory of evolution?
  5. I want to add a note here on complexity of cell. Biologist agrees about an amazing design of cell that a smallest living cell has the complexity of a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet Airplane. The components of the smallest living cell have the obvious arrangement showing intelligent design.
  6. Evolution needs to explain the arrival of fittest, not just the survival of the fittest.
  7. If fossils are the strong evidence of evolution then why are the countless millions of transitional fossils are missing? Why there are fragmented record of fossils of single so called evolved organism or species?
  8. How did blind chemistry create mind, intelligence, morality, altruism in human?

Lastly, what purpose of meaning is there to this precious human life which we live! Should I teach students to be learning nihilism that, life is meaningless, hopeless and zero value in my class? The answer must be a big NO. Because I strongly believe that there must be a great intelligent designer. The supreme designer who designed even Charles Robert Darwin and J.B.S. Haldane too! As the famous scientist Elbert Einstein said-” Before God, we are all equally wise and equally foolish.”
