as a brief summary of the role of evolution. this is not a bad one

Weightlifters and Gorillas

(From Quora, April18,2020)

The Comparison here is that between a very short term, years, hundreds, thousands at the most, adaptation, in this case the build-up of muscular mass in a weightlifter, someone much like us, and the much longer term build-up of muscle mass in the Mountain Gorilla, not measured in years or hundreds of years, but hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of years, that now characterizes the extraordinary strength of our fellow planetary inhabitant. And this happened “naturally,” through naturally occurring evolutionary changes marked by no particular effort on the part of the Gorilla.

So rather than go to the gym go to the library and there read and learn about the real wonders of the evolution of all life on earth.
