Retrodictions, canto 1, quatrain 5

Select the best, that’s Nature’s plan;
survive confusion, want and strife;
from fish to frog, from ape to man;
thus grew the family tree of life.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
What peculiar paganism is this, which calls a man cousin to a fish?

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about evolution by natural selection.
