"What's amazing about this is that these three things have to collectively have a name - an ism that people subscribe to. They should be just what we all do."

"Yeah...something like that. But I'd prefer he give out a super concrete example so it could be explained. The numerous ways eyes developed isn't the same kind of "increased complexity" as say...the emergence of multi-celled…"
