globe in the year 1820 in a ship, namely Beagle. It is from this voyage that Darwin
established the facts for his theory of Natural selection/evolution (Allen 2018).
Evolution explains that humans, together with animals and plants, undergo evolution
and adaptations in life for survival. In his theory of evolution by natural selection, he
describes the most adapting species survives in the environment while the weak
ones become extinct. The surviving species will reproduce to young offsprings for
continuity. Darwin changed humankind’s perception about life on earth that

modern world, as it has helped people understand and research the various
evolution and social changes of humankind. From the article "Good Reads: The Ape
that Understands the Universe with Challenge and Delight Readers of all Stripes,"
