For this final paper, you must be more formal than with your past weekly journal/reflection papers. The topic for your final paper is Evolution. Despite evolution’s potential for personal controversy, it is an essential element of biology and our natural world. In this paper, you will outline your response to a hypothetical situation by presenting your supporting arguments and summarizing your conclusion.
Imagine on the first day during which your class is discussing evolution, a fellow student says to you, “I don’t believe in evolution or that it creates new species of organisms.”
What would you say back to this student? Do you agree with them? Does the scientific evidence agree with them? Why or why not?
Support your response to the student with the scientific concepts we are learning about in class.
