What does it mean to be on the top of the evolutionary ladder or the winner evolutionarily speaking?

@jherb In my opinion - that's not the way evolution works. There's no ladder. If your species is surviving than you are "winning" from an evolutionary standpoint - whether you're a human, a fern, or bacteria. And even that is a purely constructed human definition - not some objective cosmic truth.

@Pondering Good point. What would it mean to be the most evolutionarily advanced?

@jherb it means that the speaker doesn’t fully understand evolution. :)
