. There are maybe up to a trillion of species on earth. Wy all those species on Earth?
A interesting issue is that the Quran gives space for a “Evolution of the Human species” hypothesis, something that the Bible by literalists seemingly doesn’t. (Source www.answeringislamicskeptics.com as can be read in Quran 76:1 that says: “Has there come on man a long period of time when he was a thing unremembered?”
According to the Quran the Paradise with Adam and Eve were created in Heaven were Adam were condemned to leave the Paradiss to go down to Earth incarnated in a mortal body. This led me further into my unified creation theory and my enlightened genesis , a Genesis of the 2nd millenium where I describe my agnostic belief and hypothesis of a God and the births of the worlds and human kind.
earth is autoregenerative
The earth is autoregenerative. The whole biosphere system has autoregeneration builtin. Look at nature after a fire. It take very little time to recreate life on burned land.
The diversity of species and the evolution is maybe part of a regenerative planet Earth. The other species are there in case a new evolution has to be activated. When the metheor fell over the Caraibic, the dynosaurs died out and other species probably mices, took over.
We burn fuels and produce huge amounts of carbon dioxide. If humanity doesn’t, the Earth biosystem handles this as it did in the Cambrian age when e.g. Sweden was a shallow sea.
The fossile fuel – oxygen coexistence in Earth biosphere is nicely described with this image explaining the photanol process using cyanobacteria from photanol.com:
of course in Nature, cell produce biomass with carbon dioxide. The more carbon dioxide the more biomass as were the case in the Cambrian age when all our fossile fuel deposits (gas, oil, carbon deposits) were produced from biomass of among otghers dinoflagellate algae and trees.
A total atomic world war will destroy the Earth biosphere?
It will certainly create problems but more for humans than for other creatures.
As has been seen with the Gilda nuclear bomb test on the Bikini atoll, it destroyed the life for 167 Bikinians that never could go back to their island. the nature recovered quite well. Marine life fluorishes again even if it is still inhabitable for humans.

The same for the nuclear plant disaster at Chernobyl 1986. The nature is thriving according to video.nationalgeographic.com while humans can not go back into the exclusion zone.
We know that cockroaches will take over and a new evolution will start with maybe completely new mutaded species.
like Curt Grimm says in his site drkurtgrimm.com
Nature is loopy and verby
Our biosphere is autoregenerative and the biodiversity of species and evolution mechanisms are important part of this. We are making our life a hell but Earth does not need humans. Humans need the Earth.
As Gary Yourofski wisely said:
“ We think that animal life isn’t valuable and we falsely believe Human life is valuable. “

Charles Darwins dilemma
I am reading the Italian book “Born to believe” from Vittorio Girotto, Telmo Pievani, Giorgio Vallortigara that talks about the problem Darwin had with his theory about the origin of species.
He said among others in his “Origin of species”:
“To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.

This text is also presented in On the Origin of Species: Chapter VI, The eye” | Science | The Guardian )“ (” (Read more in http://darwiniana.org/eyes.htm )
As I mentinoed above read my agnostic hypothesis about how a God created Adam through a evolution of a human body adapted to life on Earth at www.kinberg.net/2017/09/08/unified-creation-theory.
I integrated this hypothesis in “the Enlightened Genesis” in http://www.kinberg.net/2018/03/28/the-enlightened-genesis/.
The human body
a natural history museum
If God created our body in the beginning why did God create it with imperfections and useless functions some of them even causing illnesses? Of course God didn’t.
. Our body inherited caracteristics we do not need, caracteristics our ancestors had and needed where some gives us illnesses like:
- blood coagulation properties needed by Neanderhtal but causing stroke in our body.
- energy production needed by Neanderthal but giving us diabetes.
Other fucntions we have are useless like:
- Useless orangutang shoulder hairs
- Useless Embryo tail
- Useless Palmaris longus
- Useless auricularis superior, anterior and posterior
- Useless arrector pili causing Goose bumps

Human anthropology and cooperation
Listen to Yuval Harari in this video
what explains the rise of humans
He brings up the value of language and cooperation I wrote some time ago in my
“Evolution of cooperation.”
About human anthropology I use mainly
Smithsonian national museum of natural history snd its site

Evolution of complex organs (like the eye), plants and bodies.
As Darwin wrote in his book “The Origin of species in the Sixth Edition – 1872:
“Reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a simple and imperfect eye to one complex and perfect can be shown to exist, each grade being useful to its possessor, as is certainly the case; if further, the eye ever varies and the variations be inherited, as is likewise certainly the case; and if such variations should be useful to any animal under changing conditions of life, then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered as subversive of the theory.” (Source: http://darwiniana.org/eyes.htm )
Research are finding more and more answers on the eye evolution hypothesis. This video show different evolutionary level s of development of vision and how our own eyes limit (the blind spot) is evidence of a incomplete evolution. It is maybe not liked by fancreationists (fanatic ceationists)
Our body are not perfect. Ou body has caracteristics we do not need but our prehistoric evolutionary ancestors needed. Look at this video to know more:
Evolution of species today
Evolution is taking place today and can be observed. Farmers themselves develope with the help of evolutionary scientific knowledge, new types of vegetables and bacteria. Examples are:
- plants that are more resistant to climate
- bacteria that produce insuline
- getting high productivity cattle
Expeccially Christians and Muslims tend not to believe there is a evolution.
With all Nature documentaries, they may believe that lions keeps their preys healthy by eating up sick preys. But that new species arise in a evolutionary process is difficult for them to beelieve in.
The evolution of new arts in Evolution is hard to understand as it is difficult to show examples. We have to look at species that reproduce fast enough to see this.
There is one case actually studied in Galapagos that happened in two generations of a finch and documented in https://www.sciencealert.com/darwin-s-finches-evolve-into-new-species-in-real-time-two-generations-galapagos
Virus and bacteria with their short life are able to give us several prooves that evolution is a reality.
Multidrug resistance in bacteria is understood by all but maybe not as a result of evolution.
The evolution of the new species like the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is one of many good examples we understand as results of mutations.
How advanced sorganes like eyes and pecies like humans with our DNA is often referred as a Gods creation. Not forgetting the advanced DNA of Chimpanzees and Bonobos.
Darwins Evolution theory
evolution requires these conditions:
|1. individuals within a population differ
||Giraffe offspring have different length
|2. some individuals are more successful in surviving and reproducing than others
The giraffe with longer neck reaches the leaves more easily.
|3. differences are passed at least in part from parents to offspring
||The giraffe with the longer neck gets offspring with longer neck.

Who is making the selection?
- Females choose what individuals will be allowed to get offspring
- predators kill individuals that are less fitted.
This video is explaining evolution very well with good illustrations

Why should the Bonobo take over – Chimpanzee and bonobo differences
Some humans are more chimpanzee like and others more bonobo alike.
- Chimpanzee are more aggressive and violent than Bonobo.
- Chimpanzee have bigger heads
- Bonobo females are the more dominant
- Chimpanzees males are the more dominant
- Bonobo males are more kind to females
- Bonobo female keep together
- Chimpanzees change behaviour in puberty, Bonobo not
- Bonobo lives only in Congo
What can bonobo teach us?
