Evolution is not Perfect
by: Robin

I don't think one can say that "perfection" exists regarding adaptation following natural selection (the way species emerged). The processes of variation and natural selection are not perfect, natural selection only favors the less imperfect beings. If evolution created perfection, there will be nothing more to develop and evolution would end. That is not the case.

More about evolution you find in the Evolution Theory review.
