BJU Life Science 8

Bob Jones Life Science - Chapter 8

literal view The belief that the Creation week was six consecutive twenty-four-hour periods.
gap theory The belief that there was a long period of time between events of Genesis 1:1 and 1:2.
long-day theory The belief that each day of the Creation week was actually a long period of time (millions or billions of years).
progressive creationsism The belief that God created life in stages over a long period of time and that evolution and extinction occurred in the intervals between the creative acts
theistic evolution The interpretation of the Bible proposing that God used evolution as His means of creation.
fossil Any evidence or remains of an organism preserved by natural means.
biological evolution The supposed gradual change of one kind of organism into another kind of organism over many generations.
theory of inheritance of acquired characteristics Lamarck's theory that physical changes caused by an organism's environment can be passed on to offspring.
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.
speciation The forming of a new species.
adaptation An inheritable characteristic that helps an organism survive; according to evolutionists, the change of an organism that enables it to survive in a new environment and contributes to its evolution.
