Notice the very narrow line at 2 Ma: were the first hominoids. Humans  have been on this Earth for such a short period of time, there have been many extinctions, and the only constant is change. This beautiful planet is our home.

I saw this earlier today and thought the group might be interested.  Betting has commenced for the next Pope and it appears that we might have a horse in this race, albeit a long shot.  The line on Richard Dawkins as the next pope is set at 666/1...  fingers crossed.  http://www.paddypower.com/bet/novelty-betting/current-affairs/pope-...
