Random quote of the day:

“I find it truly stunning how many people can shrug off stuff like this, preferring instead a tiny, cramped cosmos just 6,000 years old, scheduled to end any-time-now in a scripted stage show of unfathomable violence and cruelty. An ancient and immense and ongoing cosmos is so vastly more dramatic and worthy of a majestic Creator. Our brains, capable of exploring His universe, picking up His tools and doing His work, seem destined for much greater tasks than cowering in small groups of the elect, praying that some of our neighbors will go to perdition…

—David Brin, commenting on the discovery of Homo floresiensis at McMedia.com, 27 October 2004

Random quote of the day:

“If we had been made directly from clay, the way it says in the Bible, and had therefore inherited no intermediate characteristics —if a god, or some principle of growth, had gone that way to work with us, he or it might have molded us into much more splendid forms.  But considering our simian descent, it has done very well.  The only people who are disappointed in us are those who still believe that clay story.  Or who—unconsciously—still let it color their thinking.”

—Clarence Day, This Simian World, 1920
