A Simple Idea
by An Ordinary Man (the novel)
“Three separate images materialized on the large screens over his head. To the students’ left was a sensible snowshoe hare, in the center an extravagant jackrabbit, and to the right the spare marsh rabbit.”
The idea is simple; if we can breed anything from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane through human selection, Nature should be able to breed anything from a snowshoe hare:
to a jackrabbit:
to a swamp rabbit:
through natural selection. That’s all Darwin was saying. The process does not have to be construed as God-less; some of us equate Nature with Him, making Him the Selector.
