How the Cambrian Explosion Exemplifies Darwin’s Doubt

Charles Darwin Theory of Evolution

Charles Darwin is widely recognized as the father of the theory of evolution. His research became the basis for the expansion of ideas concerning an old universe, gradual change amongst species, and development of modern species as a result of adjustments throughout time. There’s a flaw that he noted in his research that has never truly been explained. How did the Cambrian Explosion happen through evolution?

In this infographic from Judeo Christian Church, we explore the strange period of time when life seemed to change so rapidly that creationists often point to it as clear proof against the theory of evolution. Read more

Fans Drop but Engagement Stays on Facebook #Infographic

Facebook Likes

Some were saying it was the Facebook apocalypse. Facebook was going to be knocking off old, spammy, or memorialized Facebook accounts from the like counts of Facebook pages. They were then going to adjust the algorithm to allow for more exposure for friends’ posts rather than pages representing businesses or organizations. The end result: not much changed.

This is good for those who are marketing through Facebook, though the strategy component hasn’t changed. It’s still pay to play if you want to find real success on the social network. this infographic by Komfo highlights the effects of the changes from earlier this year: Read more

Rise of the Female Entrepreneur #Infographic

Female Entrepreneur

Women have been a powerful part of the business world for several decades. It hasn’t always been like this, though.

Wolf of Wall Street vs Compassion #Infographic

There are two ways to spend money. The option that most people take is to use their accumulate wealth to make a better life for themselves and their family.

This is less popular for obvious reasons in a society that seems bent on indulgence rather than worldly or spiritual problem solving. Read more

The Balance Between Catching More Fish and Keeping the Ecosystem Strong

Fish Ecology

Things above the water are often easier to understand than those things that happen in the seas. Because of the vastness, it’s impossible to know when there are plenty of fish in an area to be caught and when catching too many fish can lead to an ecological collapse. The balance is a gentle one and very difficult to predict.

In this motion graphic video, the National Aquarium shows what’s happening and offers solutions to make it easier to keep the right balance.

The Need for Food Education for Kids #Infographic

School Lunch

Eating is arguably the most important component of health, particularly for children. What we eat, how often we eat, and even where we eat can have lifelong effects on more than just the physical development of kids. It can affect how they operate throughout their lives in other areas as well.

The meal habits of children has been a point of controversy for some time. First Lady Michelle Obama has made an effort to slow childhood obesity, a problem that has been growing for decades. It hasn’t been without push back; her plan has been met with animosity from children and contempt from parents who feel that the forced lunch mandates are making school lunch less enjoyable and making kids avoid eating them altogether.

Minimalist Views of Classic Superhero Vehicles #Infographic

Wonder Woman

Not all superheroes are like Superman. Most of them need help to get to where they’re needed at any given time, so having a good ride is imperative. It wouldn’t be effective if they had to take a cab or drive a Camry, so they normally have something very cool to get them from point A to point B.

Some, like the Batmobile, have their own really cool gadgets that give them a character life of their own. Others such as the Silver Surfer Surfboard is simply a mode of transportation.

There is very little doubt that the dietary habits in the United States are poor. Obesity continues to rise despite improved food education. Health problems associated with poor diet and sugar consumption are not getting better. As a country, we’ve grown content to follow the cravings of our sweet tooth.
