The theory of evolution is an explanation for the origin of the cosmos and life on Earth through natural processes. More formally known as the General Theory of Evolution, it encompasses chemical evolution, biological evolution, and cosmic evolution via the Big Bang.
Many evolutionists claim that vestigial organs are the leftover organs of evolutionary change, since we have evolved past our earlier variations or ancestors, what was needed then is no longer necessary for the current environment, and although the structure may still be physically observable, no physical or readily observable use for it can be attained. However creationists point out that these organs are indeed functional and in some cases vital to embryonic development or actually living a comfortable, normal life as a human.
Ernst Haeckel (February 16, 1834 — August 9, 1919) was a German zoologist and contemporary of Charles Darwin and in believing Darwin's proposed evolutionary theory to be correct, Haeckel began performing his own research to bolster the theory. Ernst Haeckel was so persistent with his constant passion to defend evolution and prove it fact, he earned several nicknames such as, "Darwin’s Bulldog on the Continent" and "the Huxley of Germany."
"In any case, no real evolutionist, whether gradualist or punctuationist, uses the fossil record as evidence in favour of the theory of evolution as opposed to special creation." Mark Ridley, 'Who doubts evolution?', New Scientist, vol. 90, 25 June 1981, p. 831
