ABSTRACT
This paper reviews the status of evolutionary and natural selection theories, based on their solidity as scientific stances. Recent analysis that confirm and discuss some of its fundaments are considered, specially those given by researchers in the biological sciences, as well as the diverse interpretations concerning scientific theories. Creationism and intelligent design are thus rejected.
