    Studies about evolution began with the journey of Charles Darwin on his famous ship Beagle to the Galapagos island. The difference in the beaks of birds in the island created a flash of scientific derivation of principle of evolution inside Darwin’s brain. He assumed that the beaks were modified in order to facilitate the consumption of food based on the diversity. This lead to his famous theory of evolution otherwise known as Darwin’s theory. He enacted that every species has a common origin and theory of survival suggest that over the course of life, only the fittest would survive and all other become extinct . His theory created a furore among believers and scientists of that age. According to his theory humans have undergone many changes to reach this state. They are still undergoing changes so as to survive in the world with tight competition . The first humans evolved from monkeys to be more precise, must be from apes or chimpanzees . From the scientific view the stages of devolepment can be started from early apes known as Nakalipithecus,after the course of time chimpanzees and gorillas split from this ancient ape.Hominini also split up from this. The first humans to walk in two legs were ardipithecus ardipithecus undergone evolution and began to use stone tools . These early humans are classified as Australopithecus Then to homo habilis ( fossils were found from many places ) ,homo erectus ( they can stand erect) and then undergone changes to become modern man known as homo sapiens. Neanderthals are another subspecies of archaic humans who lived in Eurasia until about 40 thousand years ago. The fossils and remains of these archaic humans were found mainly from Africa, Australia and Eurasia
