And he didn’t miss saying that the evolution hasn’t stopped in the developing world, because people there have to struggle for survival. I am no expert in the evolution theory of genetics, nor have I studied biology beyond matriculation, nor I want to challenge the British expert because I am not qualified enough, but I cant suppress something in me which tend to disagree.
