Darwinian man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.
The historic ascent of humanity, taken as a whole, may be summarized as a succession of victories of consciousness over blind forces -- in nature, in society, in man himself.
In formal logic, a contradiction is the signal of defeat, but in the evolution of real knowledge it marks the first step in progress toward a victory.
All great things start as one small thing.
My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.
If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?
The proof of evolution lies in those adaptations that arise from improbable foundations.
Evolution is a tinkerer.
Essential to the theory of evolution is the premise that everything has come into being by itself.
No single discovery from any of these fields denotes proof of evolution, but together they reveal that life evolved in a certain sequence by a particular process.
Historians will have to face the fact that natural selection determined the evolution of cultures in the same manner as it did that of species.
After listening to a lecture on evolution by a science professor, a student wrote a poem and titled it The Amazing Professor. The poem read: Once I was a tadpole when I began to begin. Then I was a frog with my tail tucked in. Next I was a monkey on a coconut tree. Now I am a doctor with a Ph.D.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.
I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.
