Chantal, I found great pleasure from reading Dawkins' "The Ancestor's Tale."  It's a mammoth book relating the story of human evolution by starting at our current point and proceeding backward in time through our common ancestors all the way back to the Big Bang.  It's quite a journey!  

Comment by Marc Draco on April 10, 2012 at 12:02pm

Origin of Species is a must read - if only for the pleasure of understanding Darwin's foresight. Stephen J. Gould is another author worthy of study. Much as I admire and like Dawkins, he has become a stick to hit the idiots with - and that makes quoting him a potentially dangerous game.

What are you guys' favorite bio/evo books? I just bought The Greatest Show on Earth by the wonderful Mr. Dawkins, and I have my bio textbook for school, but can y'll recommend a few more? I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

So can we start talking about evolutionary science again? And I mean biology, not the wacked out way social scientists have adopted evolution.

Comment by Marc Draco on April 10, 2012 at 8:14am

Google suggests that this is a legitimate name, guys. Remember that correlation != causation in every instance; we're mostly scientists here and that's a basic tenet.

Comment by Joseph P on April 10, 2012 at 6:31am

Heh.  Interesting observation on his name.  I missed that.


Very well could be a theist raiding the site, yeah.  We get them from time to time.

Joseph P: i have the same feeling this guy "christ id man" is an imposter. Sounds like one, quacks like one. He employs no rational thinking, knows close to nothing about evolution, and deploys the same off-tangent tactics and wastes our time like arguing with the typical theist/creationist. Red flags all over!
Comment by Joseph P on April 9, 2012 at 11:40pm

Chris, are you a theist?

Comment by Joseph P on April 9, 2012 at 11:17pm

What part of not caring do you not understand?  You still have no understanding of evolutionary theory, and almost everything you've said on the subject is laughable ... and when things you say are challenged, you start blathering about what an important person you are.

You're a buffoon.

"I consider atheism to be a religion."
