Evolution is a light illuminating all facts, a curve that all lines must follow.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, philosopher

Today, the theory of evolution is an accepted fact for everyone but a fundamentalist minority, whose objections are based not on reasoning but on doctrinaire adherence to religious principles.
