Theory of Evolution

Paleontology

Scientists use the fossil record to help them prove the theory of evolution. The fossil record is a recording of the history of life, though not all existing fossils are in the fossil record. They try to find homologies- similarities due to shared ancestry- between fossils

Biogeography

Not only does biogeography provide significant inferential evidence for evolution and common descent, but it also provides what creationists like to deny is possible in evolution.

Molecular Biology

The field of molecular biology provides the most detailed and convincing evidence available for biological evolution. It is unveiling of the nature of DNA and the workings of organisms at the level of enzymes and other protein molecules. It has shown that these molecules hold information about the organism's ancestry.
