Evolution

The scientific theory of eveloution was created by Charles Darwin in the mid-19th century. His theory explains how life on earth has changed over geological time.Even today Darwin's theory is still the most accurate and is supported by fossiles and great changes seen in micro organisms. 

Evoloution is the change in herritable traits and biological population over generations.

Evoloution works by a change in the DNA from an adult to it's child.

Evoloution shows that we are related to any living thing because we all evolved from one thing over gernerations although we dont know what the first living creature is....yet.

Buddhism

All Buddhists live by the Five Moral Precepts which are refraining from:

  • harming living things
  • taking what is not given
  • sexual misconduct
  • lying or gossip
  • taking intoxicating substances eg drugs or drink

What do Buddhists belive?

Buddhists believe that the Buddha saw the truth about what the world is like,that nothing in the world is perfect, and that the Buddha found the answer to why it is like this. They do not believe that the Buddha was a god. He was a human being just like them. They believe that he was important because he gained Enlightenment, and he chose to teach other people how to reach it too.

Where do Buddhists Worship?

Buddhist worship at home or at a temple. Worshippers may sit on the floor barefoot facing an image of Buddha and chanting. It is very important that their feet face away from the image of Buddha. They listen to monks chanting from religious texts and take part in prayers.
