      Darwin get right about his observation on natural selection that finches and tortoises were different and works as a real process to their surrounding to survive, but he went beyond his own data whe said that God had created each individual species on the Galapagos Islands.

      Darwin was correct to notice that some creatures had adapted to their surroundings to survive. His error was to apply that to all creatures in the world over the whole expanse of time.

      That the tortoise and finches were different. He went beyond his own data and decided that God wouldn’t make different tortoise in every Galapago’s island and that they must have evolved and if they did then so did everything else.

      Darwin’s observations on natural selection and how the process worked, according to Ray Bolin, were correct and insightful. Where he went wrong is when he assumed that all species must have and do evolve.

      Darwin was right when he said that animals evolved but he did not explain how evolution started in the first place and how exactly the animals exist came to be.

      Darren made good observations of the physical world. However he extrapolated that data farther than the data actually allows.

      Darwin observed small changes and “quantified what natural selections is, how it works, as a real process.” But Darwin “went beyond his own data.” He based his whole theory and applied his assumptions on everything in creation on the slight differences he observed in species on the Galapagos Islands.

      Natural selection does take place in ensuring that the best item (plants, animals, etc.) continue to exist because they are most like to survive the situation that exists. D
