The Strongest Live and the Weakest Die
Darwin definitely hit on an accurate statement; we have long witnessed in the natural world how the "strongest live and the weakest die." It could be argued that this statement is only absolutely true when reflecting on nature and does not apply to human beings. However, strength is not simply measured in the physical sense; there are many other ways that strength can be assessed. It has to be recognized that in certain situations survival may depend on a variety of different definitions of strength including mental strength or the strength of being able to adapt to a particular condition. Critics of this theory are not cognizant of the varying classifications that distinguish the different forms of strength. Darwin continues to amaze all of us and continues to deserve our support!
