- Evolution Through the Ages is a game community with an omnipresent “Sim-like” game-play based upon accurate Evolutionary phylogenetic lineages. Its goal is to lessen the divide between misconceptions about how one organism can adapt, and eventually lead to the process of evolution of organismal populations and serve as a model to demonstrate the individual “small” steps the process of evolution has taken over the course of life’s history. Users begin with a few simple atoms from the Periodic Table of Elements responsible for creating the building blocks of life such as Phospholipids, Amino Acids and even DNA/RNA.
