First of all I am not writing this for some silly debate on the difference between evolution and “intelligent design” (so please stick to the post and not some weird idea)
The Theory of Evolution formulated by Charles Darwin basically states….
The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Charles Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, describes how organisms evolve over generations through the inheritance of physical or behavioral traits, as National Geographic explains. The theory starts with the premise that within a population, there is variation in traits, such as beak shape in one of the Galapagos finches Darwin studied. Individuals with traits that allow them to adapt to their environments will help them survive and have more offspring, which will inherit those traits. Individuals with less adaptive traits will less frequently survive to pass them on. Over time, the traits that allow species to survive and reproduce will become more frequent in the population and the population will change, or evolve. Through natural selection, Darwin suggested, a diverse life-forms could arise from a common ancestor.
Some of these characteristics may give the individual an advantage over other individuals which they can then pass on to their offspring.
Individuals with characteristics best suited to their environment are more likely to survive, finding food, avoiding predators and resisting disease. These individuals are more likely to reproduce and pass their genes on to their children.
Individuals that are poorly adapted to their environment are less likely to survive and reproduce.
What got me to thinking along this line is the raging Covid-19 virus and people’s reactions to the steps that need taking to prevent it from wiping out populations.
Could the reactions to the issues of health during the pandemic be evolution as Darwin envisioned?
Those with the logical and rational brain that have been intelligent enough to take the precautions will survive and those with the less sophisticated mind will doom themselves?
As my grandfather use to tell me….”Ignorance is easily cured but stupid is terminal”.
Those that are against these precautions are doing to themselves what they have been afraid that others we doing to them….dooming the white race.
Could this be a blessing or a curse?
Just thinking out loud.
