Evolution, Succinctly

So you are all familiar with my four word summation of evolution, and you know my dad’s response to it. To recap, his response was “Survival of the fittest.” Well, in the November issue of Natural History magazine, esteemed evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins chimes in with his own succinct phrase: Evolution is “nonrandom survival of randomly varying hereditary instructions for building embryos.” As you may notice, Dawkin’s phrase is strikingly similar to: “Fish frog monkey man,” and I don’t even have a scientific background!
