Natural Selection

          Evolution is often described as cereatures, "Evolving" through the ages, which is true, species do progress and advance over time. Recently, KahnAcademy posted a video that gave a simple straight forward explanation of evolution. The main theory currently is explained as follows: Let's say there are two bacteria. One is contagious and everyone has it, so the immune system of the victims adapt and fight it off. The second bacteria has not been, "introduced" so the to-be victims are not ready to handle it. That lets the second bacteria thrive while te first is being killed by the victims immune system. As a result, bacteria one dies off while bacteria two thrives. To put another label to it, i'll use computer mice as another example. Its the year 2015, and instead of mice with two buttons, left click and right click, there is a third button, which is called, "Depth". The older mice begin to be discontinued through factories and the users but the new Depth mice and throw away the older two button mice. Natural Selection is the process of what survives, thrives, and what dosent dies, or what works thrives and what does not, dies.
