The grand predictive power of evolutionary theory...


Headline: "Human evolution at the crossroads" (MSNBC)

"Scientists are fond of running the evolutionary clock backward, using DNA analysis and the fossil record to figure out when our ancestors stood erect and split off from the rest of the primate evolutionary tree. But the clock is running forward as well. So where are humans headed?"

"Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins says it's the question he's most often asked, and 'a question that any prudent evolutionist will evade.'"

We sure are impressed.
