Fred Brown, a graduate of University of Illinois with a first degree in electrical engineering, has written over 100 technical articles and believes firmly in lifelong learning.
His topic was Evolution and the Human Brain. Starting with a very clear definition and explanation of evolution as gradual and progressive change, he explained that it is an established scientific fact and a fundamental part of creation. The controversy lies in which theory best explains specific aspects of evolution. Starting in 1859 with the publication of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species, Evolution is based on four elements: Heredity, Variation, Excess Replication, and Natural Selection. Darwin’s great contribution was the idea of the Survival of the Fittest.
