This text is now purple: fluffy2097: You'd get more bites if you called it what it really is.Eugenics./we are using DDT to breed a master race of mosquitoes.Why do you think the Jews are so smart?Nazis. The Nazis bred a race of Super Jews.
letrole: BronyMedic: Evolution. How the fark does it work? Must be like magnets to you, Amos.This text is now purple: That's natural selection. The species adapted, but it's still genetically compatible with non-selected versions of its species. It has not speciated, and thus, has not evolved.The resistance to DDT was always there. The niche that all mosquitos fill was always there. When the DDT susceptible mosquitos were killed, they left no offspring. The offspring of DDT resistant mosquitos faced less competition and were able to ensure that the mosquito niche remained filled.This is not evolution. This is not even natural selection. DDT isn't natural. This is unintended selective breeding.Same goes for anti-biotic resistant bacteria.
