Natural Selection to Survival of the FittestCharles Darwin felt strongly that observations made on large scale explorations such as his voyage on the Beagle showed conclusively that many clearly different organisms animals as well as plants were related to one another buy some unknown law In other words Darwin was trying to prove that evolution existed However Darwin does outline how a purely natural process of selection could produce similar effects and thus explain the development of new species without reference to supernatural intervention Taking that into consideration I believe that by Natural Selection Darwin is trying to portray the struggle for existence and adaptation for survival among living things With Natural Selection Darwin used this term to explain the casual mechanism which is responsible for the operation of his theory He would go about and abandon his term in favor of the term Survival of the Fittest Although he received criticism from so many of his peers for using Natural Selection the term is quite important because virtually all biologists used it as the explanation for the mechanism A main reason why Natural Selection was not very popular was because evolution requires enormously long periods of time that the everyday experience of human beings provides them with no ability to interpret such histories Looking at Darwins position Survival of the Fittest had a great meaning on the struggle for existence and Darwins emphasis on abundanceFirst looking at Survival of the fittest its a phrase that describes the outcome of a competition where there is no possibility of predicting the outcome in advance because of the complexity of the conditions of the competition It describes only the effect or outcome of an event by its very nature and regardless of the situation in which it is used For example if it were used to describe the outcome of an auto race such as the Nascar using the term It will be survival of the fittest
