Are cockroaches the chosen ones?

Cockroaches are extremely resilient and can survive a nuclear holocaust, is it possible that they're the true chosen people and evolution's goal?

Cockroaches are resilient and all, but their resistance to nuclear radiation is a bit exaggerated I think... If any animal group could be considered the "chosen ones", it's gotta be Tardigrades, those things can survive the vacuum of space and are quite radiation resistant.

Gotta agree with you there, those Tardigrades put all roaches to shame.

The "roaches can survive nuclear radiation" statement is true, but every arthropod can resist radiation.

If any arthropod would claim the Earth, it would be the ants, with their complex hives and specialized casts.

But roaches IMO still are the best to keep, as long as you have that barrier :)
