The mitochondria in the father's sperm were left outside the egg membrane
at fertilization. From the long line of descent
to your mother, new types occur, but, to the chagrin
of evolutionists, these adaptions do not affect how the mitochondria function,
that is; they do not contribute to your great grandmother being stronger,
weaker or more or less fertile. Darwin's theoretical view of natural
selection is effectively silenced hereby.
