This essay is an example of how a environmental science teacher would respond to someone who says that: a. he or she does not believe in biological evolution because it is just a theory; and b. we should not worry about air pollution because through natural selection, the human species will develop lungs that can detoxify pollutants. The essay also gives an overview of the theory of evolution and the process of the scientific method.

From the Paper:

"Today some conservative church groups argue that evolution is `just a theory' and that the `theory' that God created everything in just seven days is just as valid. They argue that since evolution is only a theory it cannot be proven and hence it is a false theory. However what they often fail to state is that evolution is indeed a theory that is well supported by facts. Furthermore, in order to examine evolution from a scientific point of view one must be aware of the basic methods and principles of science. We need to define `theory'. The scientific method holds that nothing can be proven with certainty and that most of our scientific knowledge is actually `theories'. In science the meaning of the word `theory' is very different from the meaning of `theory' in non-scientific language."
