Welcome to evogeneao.com!
OUR MISSION: Evogeneao promotes the teaching of evolution by emphasizing its greatest lesson: LIFE ON EARTH IS ONE BIG EXTENDED FAMILY. Human beings are related genealogically to not only every other living thing, but also to every thing that has ever lived!! All life on earth are cousins. This view of life can be thought of as 'EVOLUTIONARY GENEALOGY'. The website name- EVOGENEAO - (pronounced EE'-VOH-GEE'-NEE-OH) is a play on this term.
To teach evolution we use a unique Tree of Life diagram, and our cousin and removal relationship with fellow creatures.
The Evogeneao Tree of Life is a colorful genealogical family tree that helps students and the public understand evolution at a glance. Cousin and removal estimates make the evolution connection fun and personal Cousin and Removal The tree is the centerpiece of two large educational posters, available in our Store. Cousin and removal relationships and original artwork grace tee shirts, hoodies and other clothing items, which are also available in our Store. Evogeneao posters and products have helped teachers worldwide successfully teach evolution with a few simple techniques. Our For Teachers page tells you how.
Other wonderful trees of life have been drawn, but ours shows all the major and some of the minor branches of life tied to a geologic time scale, all in the colorful shape of a living tree. It also shows a few of the major branches of life that have gone extinct, and hints at changes in diversity through time, especially at times of mass extinction. http://tolweb.org/tree Many authors have pointed out that we are cousins to other living things, but Evogeneao is the first to make numerical estimates of cousin and removal relationships by counting the generations along lines of descent back to common ancestors.
Biological evolution is one of the three most profound discoveries in science. The other two are the vastness of the universe and the depth of geologic time. As such, biological evolution, along with the other two, deserves to be the foundation of all science learning, and should be taught from an early age.
If the typical fourth grader can name planets in their order from the sun, she should also know that life is all related by descent from common ancestors. Life on Earth is One Big Extended Family.
