1.1614 The Origins of The Earth.
This paper is about the creation of the universe, and more particularly about the earth and its early development. To date, no conclusive answer has been drawn about the events of 10-20 billion years ago when the universe came into existence. The whole idea of the 'big bang' is still a matter of debate for scholars, and this paper will attempt to do no more than touch on some of the commonly held ideas about the origins of the universe and the earth. The paper will discuss a few of the events that followed the creation of the universe and the earth, and to explain events as they are currently understood. The format of the paper will be as follows: first, it will discuss the formation of the universe; second, the earth in some detail, looking at the creation of the oceans and the atmosphere; third, it will conclude with an overview of the topic at hand. 10 pgs. 31 f/c. 5b.

2.1723 Sex, Conflict and Evolution.
This paper examines the relationship between sex and the evolution of species. The disadvantages of parthenogetic recreation are discussed. Nature is not perfect but it is clever. The study of sex and evolution has a great deal to tell us about how we have become what we have become. In addition, it can lead us to improve on areas--such as gender conflict--which threaten our survival. 3.5 pgs. 4 f/c. 1b.

3.1744 Controversial Aspects of Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection.
This paper will argue, through a discussion of both Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection and its social and ideological context, that Darwin's work was so controversial primarily because of the fact that it challenged conventional thinking with regard to the position of mankind in the cosmos. Although this controversy was mainly religious in origins, it will also be argued that it touched on issues of racism with respect to a presumed distinction - and the implied superiority - between the white race and the other races on the planet. 5 pgs. 11 f/c. 5b.

4.1913 How Does Evolution Work?
This paper discusses evolution with all the trappings that come with it. The idea of non-believers is addressed as well as the evolution process. Darwin's Theories are examined such as his beliefs of inherited traits which during his time was unheard of. Other issues discussed are relevant to the evolution process with words such as 'natural selection' and 'mutations' being discussed. 13 pgs. 25 f/c. 12b.

5.2537 Evolution Theory and The Fallacy of Generalizations.
This paper discusses how the evolutionary theory cannot make factual claims about the development of earth-based species because there is no empirical or observable evidence to prove the relations between changes that are recorded in the historical fragments. 4.5 pgs. 12 f/c. 4b.

6.3828 The Theory Of Evolution And The Role Of Natural Selection Therein.
This is a 10 page, seven source paper discussing the theory of evolution and the role of natural selection in that theory. Different evolutionary theories were proposed in history due to different mechanisms thought to drive the evolutionary process. Some of these are mentioned in this paper before delving into Darwin's theory. Finally, some objections to his theory are mentioned and discussed. 10 pgs. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

7.3886 Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
This paper discusses Darwin's theory of evolution. It shows how the theory rejected the notion of Creation and argued that species evolved on their own and were mutable by their very nature. The paper argues that while the theory of natural selection is valid, Darwin might have gone too far in dismissing the existence of God. Evolution and Creationism are not necessarily mutually exclusive. 6 pgs. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
