The Darwinian HypothesisLife suffers random changes.When those changes aid the ability to survive, they are incorporated into life. When they do not, they are discarded.This theory stands on the book by Charles Darwin, "On the Origin of Species."
The Theory of Universal Evolution
As developed by john Carlton hagerhorstBiological life exists everywhere in the universe in a spore state. Whenever life finds itself in an environment in which it can survive, it will leave the spore state and evolve until it is satisfied with its existence in that environment. When that environment changes so that a species is no longer satisfied with its existence, the species will again evolve until it is satisfied with its existence in the new environment. Specieal satisfaction is the driving force behind evolution and the satisfaction of the species in its previous environment is the criterion for the goal of evolution after an environmental change.Evolution on EarthOn Earth there are three known moments of environmental change that brought on evolutionary change: the pre-Cambrian explosion of life, the Permian extinction of life, and the K/T boundary crisis of life. According to our geologists, Earth's environment became suitable for life around 400 million years ago, prior to the "Cambrian" geologic period. According to paleontologists, there was an "explosion of life" that began shortly after that, a period of constant change that lasted some 50 million years before settling down to a more or less changeless period where fossils remained the same over periods of time. Some of those creatures are still the same today. The shark comes to mind, its carcass now a good match for fossil sharks 300 million years old. Things stayed settled down until something as yet undetermined happened about 260 million years ago and there was a period of 40 million years or so of rapid change until, settling down again, there were land animals, mammals, dinosaurs and the like, and the fossil record began demonstrating no change once again.Then, about 65 m.y.a., a sudden crisis, at the boundary of two geologic ages, hence the K/T designation, this one thought to be the result of a monster asteroid crash, and this time maybe 30 m.y. of fossil change and no more dinosaurs. The world was pretty much as we see it today, horses, elephants, platipii and pandas, except no human beings. A specialized disaster was our downfall, or uprising, depending on your outlook. Sometime around 20 to 25 m.y.a. The Rocky Mountains rose overnight the many thousands of feet from the plains to their present height. At around that same time, the four major deserts of the world came into being almost overnight. That the mountains altered the wind currents of the world, that no rain fell where there had been ample rain, causing the trees to die in two years creating desert, and that in one of those sudden deserts, we, in our previous evolutionary iteration, found ourselves thrown out of a veritable paradise in which we had lived happily for more than twenty million years is a logical conclusion. Human beings are still evolving. Around seven thousand years ago, as part of the process of evolution, human beings became aware of the fact that we, as can all of life, could think. The goal of intellectual awareness was and is to esconce humanity in the Garden of Eden, but it was immediately misunderstood as a personal drive.
