This paper traces the scientific theories that come from Darwin's Theory of Evolution with a focus on the impact they have had on society.

From the Paper:

"Everyone, at some time or another, finds it necessary to justify their actions in some way. To do so, we often use examples of similar actions, historical events, or written facts that support and justify our own actions. Throughout history, many pieces of writing have been used to justify various actions and events. The Bible has been used to justify a great deal of actions: both good and bad. Everything that is written, can be interpreted in different ways by different people. For example, the Bible says "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."[1] This has been used by legal systems to justify capital punishment. However, it has also been used by murderers to justify their revengeful and unlawful crimes."
