Evolution: Finally, the answer


Here is the ultimate explanation of evolution, but do not read it while you are drinking coffee.

That's a great book overall. Here's a quote that cracked me up, from the book itself: "Once, when the secrets of science were a jealously guarded property of a small priesthood, the common man had no hope of mastering their arcane complexities. Years of study in musty classrooms were prerequisite to obtaining even a dim, incoherent knowledge of science. Today all that has changed: a dim, incoherent knowledge of science is available to anyone. Popular science books - with their simple, fatuous, and misleading prose, their garish four-color illustrations, their flimsy modern binding - have brought science within the reach of anyone who can afford their inflated prices, or wait a couple of weeks for the remainders. Indeed, today a myriad of books is available that can explain scientific facts that science itself has never dreamed of. This is one of those books." Marcos
The highlight, IMHO is, "One of the mammals' evolutionary advantages was that they bore their young alive. As research has conclusively shown, animals that bore their young dead generally got nowhere." bFast
Hey! I remember this from the (sadly, now defunct) Journal of Improbable Results! Nice! Carlos
How about the resolution (“A Modern Solution”) of the conflict of evolutionism vs. creationism (see: www.besse.at/sms/descent.html) No more need for PT or UD! ofro
