In class on Thursday we

In class on Thursday we examined the poem “On Beauty” by Zadie Smith. The sentences and the structure of the poem were so confusing that no one was able to come up with any form of conclusion. However we read the poem and appreciated its complexity, trying to find a “truth’. The same dedication has been seen over many years, in the work of scientists to find a conclusion or “truth” in the theory of evolution. The more one analyzes a story/poem, the more one finds elements they did not see the first time they read it. A similar theory applies to the observation of evolution, at a glance it seems simple but the more you analyze, the more you find, however there is no universal truth.
