ya..but evolution occured. (im learnin this is bio class :P).
His "KIND" use to scam people. But through Darwins theory of evolution, a mutation occured and changed ONE of his kind. That new "kind" gave the items back, although he is still part of the old "kind". Once this happens, evolutioin will continue to occur, making it so that more of "his kind" are around to prove this theory of evolution.
