Happy Darwinmas

'Tis the season to stir up the locals. My favorite Holy Day is Darwin's Birthday. It is such a shame that Evolution Sunday comes but once a year.

Actually, that is exactly right.
  1. Evolution is dumb. As far as I can see, there is no design behind it or consciousness guiding it. There is no It to be aware of you--and yet you are.
  2. Evolution is dangerous. A great book by Daniel Dennett is Darwin's Dangerous Idea.
Great reading for Evolution Season.
