How the City Hurts Your Brain

jezreel Re:OMG, how badly informed are they? (439 comments)

Evolution doesn't work by changing yourself and passing on the changes to your children, but being happy with that mutation you gained (when you were just 1 cell) and thus manage to NOT get killed like everybody else before having children.
