Robert M. Sapolsky Quote

EVOLUTION RESTS ON three steps: (a) certain biological traits are inherited by genetic means; (b) mutations and gene recombination produce variation in those traits; (c) some of those variants confer more fitness than others. Given those conditions, over time the frequency of more fit gene variants increases in a population.
