Evolutionary data is constantly being compiled and tested; thus, scientists contend that evolution is both a fact and a hypothesis.

The discovery of DNA (strands of genetic material) is the best evidence of biological evolution. By comparing genomes of different living things and studying variations in gene coding, scientists can see how closely different species are related to each other and how long a shared ancestor has existed.

Scientists in the U.S. Department of Defense are seeking to clone gold orb weaver silk to use with bulletproof vests.

Research suggests that a person needs to treat it as if they can't fail to be a brilliant flirt. Flirting is a matter of mood.

There is continuous compilation and checking of evidence for evolution; therefore, scientists contend that evolution is both a fact and a hypothesis.

If humans are still developing or if they have reached their evolutionary age, researchers are uncertain.

Some scientists assume that colonisers would face new environmental conditions, such as low gravity and oxygen, if humans were to colonise other planets

The phrase "Junk DNA" applies to noncoding DNA regions, or, in other words, they do not code for a protein.

Scientists suggest that when humans eat a predominantly leaf-based diet, wisdom teeth and the appendix are residual "equipment." These appendages have become essentially obsolete as the human diet has changed.

The discovery of DNA (hereditary material strands) gives the best evidence for biological evolution. Scientists can find out how similar different organisms are connected to each other by comparing the genomes of different living beings and studying the changes in gene coding, and how long ago a shared ancestor existed.
