Communication is a core component of any society, and language is an important aspect of that.
The English biologist discovered the fact that species better adapt to their environment over time by developing, modifying, repurposing, and losing inheritable characteristics. However, Darwin did not understand the mechanism behind how species change.What Darwin did not know was genes and subsequently their mutation.
Between 1907 and 1963 more than 64,000 Americans were forcibly sterilized for common good. Can "bad seeds" be weeded out by force sterilization?
Today the theory of evolution is a complex body of theory supported by other branches of science. In other words, we do not need the theory of evolution to know that evolution is a fact. However, in the mid-nineteenth century, the world was different.

Evolution theory, also known as evolutionary theory, or the theory of evolution, is based on the idea that all life on earth is related and gradually changes over time. The theory primarily explains the ongoing speciation of life since its emergence on Earth.
Natural selection says only the fit will surprise. The fit are those that have the inherited traits that help them best adapt to their habitat so that they live long enough to have and raise their offspring. Does this mean all of the inheritable traits of organisms ultimately serve one purpose: improve the adaptation of the organisms to their environments?
Virtually all live-born babies grow up to have their own babies. Does this mean human natural selection, hence the evolution of humans, is coming to an end?
Potatoes grown by cloning are cheap and plentiful, but they share the same genetic information, which makes them vulnerable to the same potato diseases.
