With mounds of scientific evidence that support Darwin’s theories of evolution, you’d think that critics of his ideas would stop bickering and pay a little attention. Especially when science continues to prove that he was right. Now science has given Darwin a “thumbs up” on one of his more controversial ideas, that new species can develop from a small population of a species even when that population is not geographically separated from the main group.
Scientists studying an isolated volcanic lake in Nicaragua have found the proof in two species of fish that seemed to have developed from a common ancestor. Read more about the study here. Of course, the study is open to scientific peer review. This is the wonderful thing about science, that you can actually question people’s ideas. That is, as long as you follow the same rigorous methods to prove them wrong. I don’t think creationists include this in their methodology. Unfortunately, either you believe, or you’re a heretic.
