Does the Theory of Evolution really matters?

Support Stated Clearly on Patreon: Students who may be disinterested or uncomfortable with the science of evolution often wonder why it is worth their time and effort to understand. Stated Clearly and Emory University's Center for Science Education have joined forces to create this animation addressing these concerns. The discovery of biological evolution is among the most significant scientific findings of the last 200 years. It has lead us to thousands of new discoveries and is greatly expanding our understanding of the natural world. Here we look at 3 mysteries which were solved by using Darwin's theory of evolution. The understanding we have gained is having a dramatic impact on food security, disease control, and environmental conservation. This material is based upon work supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Science Education Program award to Emory University, award#52006923. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute or Emory University.
