I have been spending a lot of time making little tweaks to my new blog.? Not that this is anything new for me – every time I finish a blog post and hit “Publish”, I will immediately think of several tiny changes I could have made that, in my opinion, would have made the blog post somehow dramatically better.
I am sure we have all spent time formatting Word documents to get the right look, or format numbers on Excel sheets so the numbers have 2 decimal points, or that PowerPoint presentations so that text box is just the right size… I am always convinced that all those tiny changes add up to a huge amount of difference in the end.
But it struck me today – isn’t Evolution the same thing?? All those random genetic mutations that somehow change dinosaurs to birds, isn’t it just Nature trying to tweak a job that is already quite finished, and ending up with a much improved (to our eyes atleast) result?
