Homework Help: Western Civilization 102

Posted by Willy Wonka on Monday, April 11, 2011 at 9:33pm.

Can someone please interpret Charles Darwin thought and statements for me please:

He believed that "As more individuals are produced than can possibly survive, there must in every case be a struggle for existence, either one individual with another of the same species, or with the individuals of distinct species, or with the physical conditions of life."


"Man is the co-descendant with other mammals of a common progenitor."

"He who is not content to look, like a savage, at the phenomena of nature as disconnected, cannot any longer believe that man is the work of a separate act of creation. He will be forced to admit that the close resemblance of the embryo of man to that, for instance, of a dog-the construction of his skull, limbs and whole frame on the same plan with that of other mammals, independently of the uses to which the parts may be put-the occasional reappearance of various structures, for instance of several muscles, which man does not normally possess... - and crowd of analogous facts-all point in the plainest manner to the conclusion that man is the co-descendant with other mammals of a common progenitor....."
