Charles Darwin, goodbye and honor!

To get rid of all the hidden ones of life (under the mantle of the living), he left on the Beagle boat from England in 1831 to turn the extensive. While others were investigating the secrets of life in their own library, you wanted to see the secrets of grandfather's life in his Zoonomy and the sage Malthus in his book Essay on the principles of population. It has been around the earth for five years and only five weeks on the Galapagos Islands. There began to germinate his extensive theory. Here I will only mention two main ideas, accompanied by photographs.

First, the theory of transformism asserted that the intentions of variability, accepted also by the Biblical, allowed the appearance of new races and forms of life created by the medium. Charles Darwin denied it because, despite the same conditions, races only appeared in a limited place. Darwin said that there were no external influences, but internal ones. For this, the Galapagos Islands were revealing, since there the variability of living beings was very evident.

For Darwin, therefore, the environment cannot generate a good novelty. Nature makes a selection, an opportunity, selecting it among the novelties collected internally. One example is that on each island we have seen different types of Opuntia plants adapted to the different environments of the island, as well as the type of volcanic land. In the photos I have taken three races appear: Opuntia handia (powder), median (garbage) and epotxa (hard lava). Of course, all plants are adapted or lost to an environment, to an ecosystem (water, knife, earth, heat and environment). Therefore, we can say that our wise English is the father of a simple and ordinary ecology.

Secondly, Malthus's mind, which nature prevents the weak, prompted the sage to travel. For five years, in that long sea and land crossing, he asserted with proof that the law serves animals as well as people, hardening the theory of the selection of Nature. We have also seen in the Galapagos, where there are no hunters or inhabitants, that without mercy, has been ruled out the clumsiness, the clumsiness, the thin, the narrative, the defective (in the photo you already know how to kill the sea wolf).

The phrase created by Malthus, although discussed among biologists, has been introduced into language, that is, in this vast territory Struggle for life is the one who chooses the law, stronger, more competent or similar of all living beings. According to Darwin, this option is done on the one hand when females choose the male animal, and then nature can also choose. In the previous article, in a photo appeared the “single” sea lions, which were and were older and stronger, since the male wolves have their monopoly for “teeth and fry”.

When we interlace human beings, we can also preserve and save the weak—we do it with ourselves, creating breeds with prostheses, among which I am). In agriculture and livestock we prioritize the characteristics that nature does not choose (meat, milk, improved fruit). Nature, however, maintains with its selection a medium model.

Darwin did not know in his day the news of genetics, nor those that has taught us since then the chemistry of micromolecules, but his step was brave and great and in tribute to the volcano Darwin and Lake Darwin are present in the island of Isabela. You have chosen the most curious and beautiful views to honor the sage. In his day the Christians prevented him from understanding his theory wrong or correctly, prohibiting it in the United States, but it was time to change and improve what the Bible provided us with the simple knowledge of the Neolithic era. The discoveries of recent years have assured us that there is a link between all living beings by the contribution of microbiology, although humans have created and followed the rarest branch, both bad and good, of the tree of life.

Of course, the Galapagos model is beautiful. Unfortunately it is also too small, that all year in the Amazon, Congo or Europe the type of life disappears indefinitely, since the human being does it in the name of development and normally useless. Human intelligence is a two-mouthed sword that is often used from the most unfavorable part, being more harmful than instinct. To the Galapagos Islands we wish you to follow the oasis of the Wide Earth, when the machines take the place of living beings with human pride.
