Affirming evolution (my shortest blog post ever)

Mammal diversification happened in a short amount of timeI am not defending evolution, because it is not under serious attack.  I am affirming it because it is central to understanding what kind of creatures we are and what kind of world we live in, and this is as true for the godly as it is for the godless.

End.

  1. Evolution central to understanding what kind of creatures we are and what kind of world we live in. But we have to take it all the way, body, mind and human stupidity. We have a scientific theory of life that goes back 3.8 billion years, yet we are so irresponsible towards the environment and our fellow species. Do we really understand evolution?
