The English invention of representative government made a democratic nation possible, and the possibility was first realized in the United States, and later elsewhere. But all these animals were evolved independently.
Suppose it is to the advantage of an animal that two structures A and B—say bones—should increase together, but that variations in them are inherited independently.
Not only did they all become extinct, but they did not even, like some other extinct animal types, flourish over very long periods. It is clear that after an island has been colonized by a winged insect carried by the wind from an adjoining continent, hereditary loss of wings, if not accompanied by degeneration of other structures, will be of value in preventing its successors from being blown out to sea.
Of two female deer, the one which habitually abandons its young on the approach of a beast of prey is likely to outlive one which defends them; but as the latter will leave more offspring, her type survives even if she loses her life.

An angel whose muscles developed no more power weight for weight than those of an eagle or a pigeon would require a breast projecting for about four feet to house the muscles engaged in working its wings, while to economize in weight, its legs would have to be reduced to mere stilts.
But that is not to say that the moralist can neglect biological facts. Jarred by the woman's suicide, Montag returns home and hides the stolen book under his pillow.
This sort of variation obeys the laws of chance, and selection will only be able to pick out one most favoured combination, say short-haired blue rabbits. A few insects, such as water-beetles, contrive to be unwettable, the majority keep well away from their drink by means of a long proboscis.
A vast amount of work has been done to demonstrate the possible effect on an organ of its use or disuse throughout many generations.
On the other hand a number of independent arguments, based on well-ascertained facts, converge to the same date for the origin of the earth. To take an obvious example, the birds were almost certainly derived from a single ancestral species which achieved flight.
It is not responsible for the existence of organisms, but it remains to be shown that without it organisms would display any tendency to evolve. After graduating from high school, Bradbury's family could not afford for him to attend college so Bradbury began spending time at the Los Angeles Public Library where he essentially educated himself.
