Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.— Theodosius Dobzhansky
Relaxing Evolution Biology quotations
Life will give you whatever experience is the most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.
The consciousness of lucid dreaming is a cultural evolution.
It's something that we are talking about and learning about, not biological evolution.
I seem to be a brief light that flashes but once in all the aeons of time a rare, complicated, and all-too-delicate organism on the fringe of biological evolution , where the wave of life bursts into individual, sparkling, and multicolored drops that gleam for a moment... only to vanish forever.
No matter the economy of the jungle, the lion will never eat grass.
Darwin's theory of evolution is a framework by which we understand the diversity of life on Earth. But there is no equation sitting there in Darwin's 'Origin of Species' that you apply and say, 'What is this species going to look like in 100 years or 1,000 years?' Biology isn't there yet with that kind of predictive precision.
So in my freshman year at the University of Alabama, learning the literature on evolution, what was known about it biologically, just gradually transformed me by taking me out of literalism and increasingly into a more secular, scientific view of the world.
It is essential for evolution to become the central core of any educational system, because it is evolution, in the broad sense, that links inorganic nature with life, and the stars with the earth, and matter with mind, and animals with man. Human history is a continuation of biological evolution in a different form.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an improved theory, is it then a science or faith?
If the history-deniers who doubt the fact of evolution are ignorant of biology, those who think the world began less than ten thousand years ago are worst than ignorant, they are the deluded to the point of perversity.
We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation.
Don't be absurd! Nobody made us! We evolved by chance from snowflakes. ~ Light humor to demonstrate the fact that there is a creator for everything.
All scientists agree that evolution has occurred-that all life comes from a common ancestry, that there has been extinction, and that new taxa, new biological groups, have arisen. The question is, is natural selection enough to explain evolution? Is it the driver of evolution?
Evolution is the creation-myth of our age.
By telling us our origin it shapes our views of what we are. It influences not just our thought, but our feelings and actions too, in a way which goes far beyond its official function as a biological theory.
Biology is the science. Evolution is the concept that makes biology unique.
All great things start as one small thing.
Our task now is to resynthesize biology;
put the organism back into its environment; connect it again to its evolutionary past; and let us feel that complex flow that is organism, evolution, and environment united. The time has come for biology to enter the nonlinear world.
Does the evolutionary doctrine clash with religious faith? It does not.
It is a blunder to mistake the Holy Scriptures for elementary textbooks of astronomy, geology, biology, and anthropology.
Transitional forms are generally lacking at the species level, but they are abundant between larger groups.
Civilization began the first time an angry person cast a word instead of a rock.
Biological evolution is too slow for the human species.
Over the next few decades, it's going to be left in the dust.
Evolution lies at the heart of biology.
It is seamlessly and continuously linked to health research to better understand such conditions as AIDS or bird flu or Parkinson's or cancer or heart disease. Every biomedical experiment, every tiny advance, every major breakthrough ultimately connects to the principles first postulated by Darwin.
The central problem of biological evolution is the nature of mutation, but hitherto the occurrence of this has been wholly refractory and impossible to influence by artificial means, although a control of it might obviously place the process of evolution in our hands.
Our entire biological system, the brain and the earth itself, work on the same frequencies.
The evidence for evolution pours in, not only from geology, paleontology, biogeography, and anatomy, but of course from molecular biology and every other branch of the life sciences.
Evolutionary biologists have been able to pretend to know how complex biological systems originated only because they treated them as black boxes. Now that biochemists have opened the black boxes and seen what is inside, they know the Darwinian theory is just a story, not a scientific explanation.
The evolution of sex is the hardest problem in evolutionary biology.
Darwinan evolution is limited to the biological aspect but before that happened the molecules themselves had to evolve to enable this further (biological) evolution.
Evolution has just been dealt its death blow.
After reading Origins of Life with my background in chemistry and physics, it is clear that biological evolution could not have occurred.
Evolution explains our biological evolution, but human beings are very unique creatures. As the Dobzhansky said, all animals are unique; humans are the uniquest. And that uniqueness of being human, language, art, culture, our dependency on culture for survival, comes from the combination of traditional biological evolution.
The evolution of sex is the hardest problem in evolutionary biology.
In the broadest sense, evolution is merely change, and so is all-pervasive;
galaxies, languages, and political systems all evolve. Biological evolution ... is change in the properties of populations of organisms that transcend the lifetime of a single individual.
If we are going to teach creation science as an alternative to evolution, then we should also teach the stork theory as an alternative to biological reproduction.
Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation
The whole [scientific] process resembles biological evolution.
A problem is like an ecological niche, and a theory is like a gene or a species which is being tested for viability in that niche.
Evolution has programmed us to feel rejection in our guts.
This is how the tribe inforced obedience, by wielding the threat of expulsion. Fear of rejection isn't just psychological; it's biological. It's in our cells.
Evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology. Intelligent design is not a scientific concept.
We're going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones.
Biologically the species is the accumulation of the experiments of all its successful individuals since the beginning.
The human's place in the universe will be set in the scheme of evolution, the product of our biological inheritance.
I think that local school districts - not the federal government - should make the decision about how they teach science, biology, economics. I want my kids to be taught about evolution; I want my kids to be taught about other theories.
