Genius Burned at the Stake

My heroine’s commitment to teaching evolutionary biology prompted me to bone up on the history of evolution. I wondered why it took so long for Lamarck, Wallace and Darwin to come along. The anatomical connection between mankind and the animals is evident—we have the same organ systems as the great apes, for instance. The human oxygen-carrying metaloprotein hemoglobin, containing hundreds of components in a complex heterocyclic ring, is exactly the same in gorillas—atom for atom. Why did it… Continue

This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.



Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science.
