My Theory Of Evolution

לזכות אהובי ר' יעקב דב בן דוד הכהן

Man is born a WILD donkey.

Then he evolves into a human being.

Sometimes - he remains a wild animal that looks tame in order to be socially accepted and presentable but inside he remains the way he was born. 

A WILD donkey. 

In order to make this evolution happen hard work is necessary. It requires a constant polishing of one's character through study and practice of overcoming temptation and instinctual desires. 

This "theory" is actually found in a pasuk: 

עיר פרא אדם יולד" - איוב י"א י"ב"

[Based on the Alter of Kelm]
