Incremental improvements in racehorse times in short events is not an evolutionary trend.
Intraspecies improvements or variations as anything other than selective breeding and other factors–even the way jockeys ride.
But you write some piece about evidence of “evolution” you can bet the main stream journals and publications will find a place for you to publish your opinions.
My dad was an evolutionary physician/farmer, he used Chinina bulls and Angus cows to get leg and body in the calves, bigger longer bones to put meat on. Not evolution. Hybrid drought and corn borer resistant corn is still corn.
International botanists would correct this Iowa boy and say Maize.
I would suggest I have not evolved from Aristotle–what say you?
How stupid, horses can be selectively bred–hell that’s been going on in agriculture for a long time–memo to National Geographic–don’t be so dumb.
Social evolutionary theory is similarly junky.
Darwin was wrong about a lot of things, and he didn’t know the cellular biochemical basis for inheritance, so he thought that selective intraspecies changes mirrored the bigger phenomenon–and so?
But National Geographic can play fast and loose.
Good grief, maybe they should stick to taking pictures of exotic people and places.
