And reiterates that evolution is just the change in inheritable traits over time.

  1. One thing I found really interesting about the second episode was the influence of humans into developing a dog from a wolf by artificial selection. The way that is explained is truly overwhelming and is very exciting to see. It makes everything clear by showing you everything he explains graphically so its easier to understand. Also, it is amazing to see how many species were developed from a couple of specimens.

    I didn’t know that humans could be genetically similar to a plant, but it makes sense because we all come from the same ancestor. I am very excited to see what the next episode will bring.
