theory of natural selction Darwin's idea that only organisms best suited for their environment will survive and reproduce, causing certain traits to become more common in a population
descent with modification A component of evolutionary theory that newer organisms are the modified descendants of much older organisms.
mutation selection theory (Neo-Darwinism) The theory that mutations produce variations and that natural selection determines which variations will survive to produce biological evolution.
intelligent design The theory that nature shows evidence of design that could not have been the result of biological evolution alone and that there must have been a designer at some point.
evolutionary family tree A diagram showing the supposed progression of biological evolution.
common ancestor A hypothetical organism that evolutionists claim gave rise to two or more types of organisms; see also missing link
homologous structure Similar structures found in different species that evolutionists attribute to common ancestry and creationists to common design.
vestigial structure A structure that, according to evolutionists, no longer has an important function and will disappear in future generations.
