Aggression
Aggression Aggression is a critical part of animal existence, which is an inherent driving force to humans, as we, too, are animals. The source of aggression within humans is a long summative list, but before trying to understand its source one must apply a working definition of aggression. Encyclopedia Britannica as any action of an animal that serves to injure an opponent or prey animal or to cause an opponent to retreat defines aggressive behavior. (7) David G. Myers states that aggression is

Some of the people who have heard of the theory of evolution or Darwinism, may think that these concepts only concern the field of biology and that they have no significance in their everyday lives. This is a big misconception because far more than a biological concept, the theory of evolution constitutes the underpinnings of a dishonest philosophy that has held sway over a great number of people. That philosophy is materialism, which hol

Photosynthesis is a complex process, which involves the interactions of many compounds (Vilet, 1996). The reactions in photosynthesis can be divided into two groups: the light reactions, which require the presence of light: and the dark reactions, which are not light dependant. In this laboratory session only the light reactions

Today many of his principles still entail modern interpretation of evolution.
