“Charles Darwin himself predicted that countless intermediate animal forms must exist within the fossil record, given that organisms gradually evolved from one species into the next. However, what the fossil record actually shows is the exact opposite, namely, that whenever new species appear, they do so suddenly and without evidence of precursory forms in the geological record.”

Is “Many Worlds” an atheist war on quantum mechanics?

Huyett: “As a graduate student in the 1950s, [Hugh] Everett was alarmed to discover that traditional quantum mechanics did not line up with his materialist commitments. He was repulsed by the fact that the human mind seemed to be given a special role—a conclusion that Everett thought smacked of the supernatural. ” So he set out to change the approach via his Many Worlds hypothesis.
