Prove that evolution is not about conformism.
Conformism: Conformism is a term used to describe the suspension of an individual's self-determined actions or opinions in favour of obedience to the mandates or conventions of one's peer-group, or deference to the imposed norms of a supervening authority.
This is my first post on this forum - so I tend on treading lightly. But I would like to have a go at this.Evolution
is a Law based upon Biology
, a branch of science that studies Life (Literally: Bio = Life ; -ology = study). We know this because the Genome carries mutations to the next generation (microevolution). Evolutionary theory
is a conclusion based upon a vast majority of studies, and the evidence produced by them (Macroevolution).
Science is a tool - a method we use to take evidence, examine it, and (through testing, logic, and bringing all the evidence together) we draw facts.
From what we draw from the evidence can show either a definite fact in nature (A Law), or make a model showing what the evidence currently shows us to explain patterns within the evidence (a Theory).
Taken this into fact - that Science is a tool, and that Evolution
is simply a conclusion we have drawn based upon our human minds and the current evidence we have (a Theory), Evolution is just another result of the Scientific Method.
I can assure you that conclusions are not about Conformity.
New evidence is being brought in every day from every source you can think of about any scientific fact or any idea you can imagine! Not only evidence involving the topic of Evolution, but also the theory of Relativity, atomic theory, and so on and so forth.
The wonder about science is that it takes ALL of the evidence into account, and if something extraordinary comes along the entire Scientific World can be turned upside-down and have scientists talking for CENTURIES. How can an idea be about conformity when the whole idea can be turned upside down in the blink of an eye?
Now, some people
who accept the Evolutionary Theory may want you to think like they do without a second thought - and give you a hard time about it. But that is just how people are anyhow. If you went to High School you would know that people always pressured you into things, regardless.
But that's been around since teenagers existed.The conclusion:
Evolutionary Theory is simply a statement. A result of what Earthly scientists have drawn based upon patterns in the evidence presented. It cannot hold a grudge. It cannot ask for you to conform. It is simply an idea.
Some people who accept the Evolutionary Theory may expect you to accept it also, so they will try to pressure you into it. Like a good deal many other things in life that have nothing to do with the Evolutionary Theory.
