Evolution quotes by Big Sean
#1. It's evolution, man. Eventually the student becomes the teacher. #Quote by Big Sean
Evolution quotes by Roy Spencer
#2. I finally became convinced that the theory of creation actually had a much better scientific basis than the theory of evolution, for the creation model was actually better able to explain the physical and biological complexity in the world ... #Quote by Roy Spencer
Evolution quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#3. Where you can see tribal behavior now is in this business about teaching evolution in a science class and intelligent design. It's the scientists themselves are behaving tribally. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Evolution quotes by William A. Dembski
#4. As far as design theorists are concerned, theistic evolution is American evangelicalism's ill-conceived accommodation to Darwinism . #Quote by William A. Dembski
Evolution quotes by Emma Mildon
#5. Understanding that true spiritual evolution comes from walking forward while turning inwards. #Quote by Emma Mildon
Evolution quotes by Neal Ascherson
#6. Darwinism did not strip meaning from the world but intensified it, 'by identifying it in as many aspects of life as possible'. #Quote by Neal Ascherson
Evolution quotes by Cornelius Van Til
#7. It should not be forgotten in this connection that the minister's duty is increasingly that of an apologist for Christianity. The general level of education is much higher than it has ever been. Many young people hear of evolution in the high schools and in the college where their fathers never heard of it except as far as a distant something. If the minister would be able to help his young people, he must be a good apologete, and he cannot be a good apologete unless he is a good systematic theologian (pg. 24). #Quote by Cornelius Van Til
Evolution quotes by Edwin H. Friedman
#8. But no one has ever gone from slavery to freedom with the slaveholders cheering them on, nor contributed significantly to the evolution of our species by working a forty-hour week, nor achieved any significant accomplishment by taking refuge in cynicism. #Quote by Edwin H. Friedman
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#9. Why did I do such-and-such a thing?' is all very well. But what about 'How otherwise could I have done it? #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#10. We don't need fossils - the case for evolution is watertight without them; so it is paradoxical to use gaps in the fossil record as though they were evidence against evolution #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#11. Every flower and insect, every bird, and all the creatures that live upon the land and swim within the rivers and seas, are part of the Tree of Life. You are connected to the whole of life. Whatever happens to the myriad forms of life in the world around you, has a direct affect on you'. #Quote by Alexis Karpouzos
Evolution quotes by Susan Glaspell
#12. I often think of the different ways Goethe and Darwin got at evolution. Goethe had the poetic conception of it all right; Darwin worked it out step by step. Who's ahead? And which has any business scoffing at the other? #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Evolution quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#13. I beg you to see this in the right light, and to combine it with the feeling about what happened through the Mystery of Golgotha, in which his actual sacrifice consisted: namely in leaving the spiritual spheres in order to live with the earth and the human beings on the earth and to consolidate the impulse he gave for further human evolution on earth. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#14. It requires a deliberate mental effort to turn biology the right way up again, and remind ourselves that the replicators come first, in importance as well as in history. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by Victor Kloss
#15. Charlie said, his voice rising an octave in desperation. "I know it's ridiculous, but I keep trying to rationalise everything and it's driving me crazy. Did you spot that flying horse earlier? I found myself trying to explain it with Darwin's Theory of Evolution. #Quote by Victor Kloss
Evolution quotes by Patti Smith
#16. We were evolving with different needs. I needed to explore beyond myself and Robert needed to search within himself. He explored the vocabulary of his work, and as his components shifted and morphed, he was in effect creating a diary of his internal evolution, heralding the emergence of a suppressed sexual identity. #Quote by Patti Smith
Evolution quotes by Marianne Williamson
#17. The point of Jesus' existence wasn't to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Evolution quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#18. We are only chance visitants to this jungle of blind mutations. The natural world existed when we did not, and it will continue to exist long after we are gone. The supernatural crept into life only when the door of consciousness was opened in our heads. The moment we stepped through that door, we walked out on nature. Say what we will about it and deny it till we die
we are blighted by our knowing what is too much to know and too secret to tell one another if we are to stride along our streets, work at our jobs, and sleep in our beds. It is the knowledge of a race of beings that is only passing through this shoddy cosmos. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Evolution quotes by Ivan Rusilko
#19. What is Destiny?

Is it a doctrine formulated by aristocrats and philosophers arguing that there is some unseen driving force predicting the outcomes of every minuscule and life altering moment in one's life? Or is it the artistry illustrated by those under-qualifed and over-eager to give their future meaning and their ambitions hope?

Is it a declaration by those who refuse to accept that we are alone in this universe, spinning randomly through a matrix of accidental coincidences? Or is it the assumptions made by those who concede that there is a divine plan or pre-ordained path for each human being,regardless of their current station?

I think destiny is a bit of a tease....

It's syndical taunts and teases mock those naive enough to believe in its black jack dealing of inevitable futures. Its evolution from puppy dogs and ice cream to razor blades and broken mirrors characterizes the fickle nature of its sordid underbelly. Those relying on its decisive measures will fracture under its harsh rules. Those embracing the fact that life happens at a million miles a minute will flourish in its random grace.

Destiny has afforded me the most magical memories and unbelievably tragic experiences that have molded and shaped my life into what it is today...beautiful.
I fully accept the mirage that destiny promises and the reality it can produce. Without the invisible momentum carried with its sincere fabrication of coming attra #Quote by Ivan Rusilko
Evolution quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#20. Nature has made up her mind that what cannot defend itself shall not be defended. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Evolution quotes by Bill Bryson
#21. One of the hardest ideas for humans to accept,' he says, 'is that we are not the culmination of anything. There is nothing inevitable about our being here. It is part of our vanity as humans that we tend to think of evolution as a process that, in effect, was programmed to produce us. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Evolution quotes by Poul Anderson
#22. In the intricate and mutable space-time geometry at the black hole, in-falling matter and energy interacted with the virtualities of the vacuum in ways unknown to the flatter cosmos beyond it. Quasi-stable quantum states appeared, linked according to Schrodinger's wave functions and their own entanglement, more and more of them, intricacy compounding until it amounted to a set of codes. The uncertainty principle wrought mutations; variants perished or flourished; forms competed, cooperated, merged, divided, interacted; the patterns multiplied and diversified; at last, along one fork on a branch of the life tree, thought budded.
That life was not organic, animal and vegetable and lesser kingdoms, growing, breathing, drinking, eating, breeding, hunting, hiding; it kindled no fires and wielded no tools; from the beginning, it was a kind of oneness. An original unity differentiated itself into countless avatars, like waves on a sea. They arose and lived individually, coalesced when they chose by twos or threes or multitudes, reemerged as other than they had been, gave themselves and their experiences back to the underlying whole. Evolution, history, lives eerily resembled memes in organic minds.
Yet quantum life was not a series of shifting abstractions. Like the organic, it was in and of its environment. It acted to alter its quantum states and those around it: action that manifested itself as electronic, photonic, and nuclear events. Its domain was no more shadowy to #Quote by Poul Anderson
Evolution quotes by Charlie Brooker
#23. Creationists reject Darwin's theory of evolution on the grounds that it is just a theory. This is a valid criticism: evolution is indeed merely a theory, albeit one with ten billion times more credence than the theory of creationism - although, to be fair, the theory of creationism is more than just a theory. It's also a fairy story. And children love fairy stories, which is presumably why so many creationists are keen to have their whimsical gibberish taught in schools. #Quote by Charlie Brooker
Evolution quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#24. Nature practices deceptions in every angle. Evolution will create a being for any niche that can be found, no matter how unlikely. When #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Evolution quotes by Bryant McGill
#25. The master action to move forward, is a form of inaction; being still and quiet. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Evolution quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#26. In the United States, where it has become almost impossible to use "liberal" in the sense in which I have used it, the term "libertarian" has been used instead. It may be the answer; but for my part I find it singularly unattractive. For my taste it carries too much the flavor of a manufactured term and of a substitute. What I should want is a word which describes the party of life, the party that favors free growth and spontaneous evolution. But I have racked my brain unsuccessfully to find a descriptive term which commends itself. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Evolution quotes by John Felstiner
#27. In this twenty-first century, there's no one like Sharona Muir who can write, in bright accurate language, animals real or imaginary in an updated bestiary that riffs on evolution, extinction, and what it means to be human among other species. We need this view, and you'll be right there with her on every page of Invisible Beasts. #Quote by John Felstiner
Evolution quotes by Thomas Piketty
#28. If the twenty-first century turns out to be a time of low (demographic and economic) growth and high return on capital (in a context of heightened international competition for capital resources), or at any rate in countries where these conditions hold true, inheritance will therefore probably again be as important as it was in the nineteenth century. An evolution in this direction is already apparent in France and a number of other European countries, where growth has already slowed considerably in recent decades. For the moment it is less prominent in the United States, essentially because demographic growth there is higher than in Europe. But if growth ultimately slows more or less everywhere in the coming century, as the median demographic forecasts by the United Nations (corroborated by other economic forecasts) suggest it will, then inheritance will probably take on increased importance throughout the world. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Evolution quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#29. Creationist critics often charge that evolution cannot be tested, and therefore cannot be viewed as a properly scientific subject at all. This claim is rhetorical nonsense. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#30. People who cannot trust are themselves not trustworthy, and therefore cannot be entrusted with important things. #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#31. One of our Church educators published what he purports to be a history of the Church's stand on the question of organic evolution. His thesis challenges the integrity of a prophet of God. He suggests that Joseph Fielding Smith published his work, Man: His Origin and Destiny, against the counsel of the First Presidency and his own Brethren. This writer's interpretation is not only inaccurate, but it also runs counter to the testimony of Elder Mark E. Petersen, who wrote this foreword to Elder Smith's book, a book I would encourage all to read. Elder Petersen said:

Some of us [members of the Council of the Twelve] urged [Elder Joseph Fielding Smith] to write a book on the creation of the world and the origin of man.... The present volume is the result. It is a most remarkable presentation of material from both sources [science and religion] under discussion. It will fill a great need in the Church and will be particularly invaluable to students who have become confused by the misapplication of information derived from scientific experimentation.


When one understands that the author to whom I alluded is an exponent of the theory of organic evolution, his motive in disparaging President Joseph Fielding Smith becomes apparent. To hold to a private opinion on such matters is one thing, but when one undertakes to publish his views to discredit the work of a prophet, it is a very serious matter.

It is also apparent to all who have the Spirit o #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Evolution quotes by Bob Beasley
#32. While micro-evolution--change within species--has been observed in the laboratory, macro-evolution--change from one species to another has not, and never will be. #Quote by Bob Beasley
Evolution quotes by Frantz Fanon
#33. What I call middle-class society is any society that becomes rigidified in predetermined forms, forbidding all evolution, all gains, all progress, all discovery. I call middle-class a closed society in which life has no taste, in which the air is tainted, in which ideas and men are corrupt. And I think that a man who takes a stand against this death is in a sense a revolutionary. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Evolution quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#34. We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free
inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake.
We do not hold our convictions dogmatically: the disagreement between
Professor Stephen Jay Gould and Professor Richard Dawkins,
concerning "punctuated evolution" and the unfilled gaps in post-
Darwinian theory, is quite wide as well as quite deep, but we shall
resolve it by evidence and reasoning and not by mutual excommunication. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Evolution quotes by Jamie Wyeth
#35. Warhol had a huge effect on me. It wasn't that I sought it out. It was more of a natural evolution. #Quote by Jamie Wyeth
Evolution quotes by Jean Liedloff
#36. A culture which requires people to live in a way for which their evolution has not prepared them, which does not fulfill their innate expectations and therefore pushes their adaptability beyond its limits, is bound to damage their personalities. #Quote by Jean Liedloff
Evolution quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#37. The problem with racial discrimination, though, is not the inference of a person's race from their genetic characteristics. It is quite the opposite: it is the inference of a person's characteristics from their race. The question is not, can you, given an individual's skin color, hair texture, or language, infer something about their ancestry or origin. That is a question of biological systematics -- of lineage, taxonomy, of racial geography, of biological discrimination. Of course you can -- and genomics as vastly refined that inference. You can scan any individual genome and infer rather deep insights about a person's ancestry, or place of origin. But the vastly more controversial question is the converse: Given a racial identity -- African or Asian, say -- can you infer anything about an individual's characteristics: not just skin or hair color, but more complex features, such as intelligence, habits, personality, and aptitude? /I/ Genes can certainly tell us about race, but can race tell us anything about genes? /i/

To answer this question, we need to measure how genetic variation is distributed across various racial categories. Is there more diversity _within_ races or _between_ races? Does knowing that someone is of African versus European descent, say, allow us to refine our understanding of their genetic traits, or their personal, physical, or intellectual attributes in a meaningful manner? Or is there so much variation within Africans and Europeans that _i #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Evolution quotes by Orson Scott Card
#38. It isn't the world at stake, Ender. Just us. Just humankind. As far as the rest of the earth is concerned, we could be wiped out and it would adjust, it would get on with the next step in evolution. But humanity doesn't want to die. As a species, we have evolved to survive. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Evolution quotes by Richard Leakey
#39. Natural selection operates according to immediate cirumstances and not toward a long-term goal. Homo sapiens did eventually evolve as a descendant of the first humans, but there was nothing inevitable about it. #Quote by Richard Leakey
Evolution quotes by Beryl Bender Birch
#40. I really think there's an evolution to the practice and the individual no matter what brings you in, whether it's wine and yoga or chocolate and yoga or surfing and yoga ... #Quote by Beryl Bender Birch
Evolution quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#41. At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#42. although evolution may seem, in some vague sense, a 'good thing', especially since we are the product of it, nothing actually 'wants' to evolve. Evolution #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#43. Human evolution has two steps -
from being somebody to being nobody;
and from being nobody to being everybody.
This knowledge can bring
sharing and caring throughout the world. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Evolution quotes by Pope Pius XII
#44. Teaching Authority of the Church does not forbid ... research and discussions ... with regard to the doctrine of evolution. #Quote by Pope Pius XII
Evolution quotes by Jacque Fresco
#45. When biological technology becomes further advanced, human beings as we know them, will become a modified species. If we as human beings fail to include the possibility of this development in our overall, social evolution we will witness the decline of our species #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Evolution quotes by James D. Watson
#46. Today, the theory of evolution is an accepted fact for everyone but a fundamentalist minority, whose objections are based not on reasoning but on doctrinaire adherence to religious principles. #Quote by James D. Watson
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#47. It has truly been said that 'Humility is not so much a virtue as a necessity, in order to learn. #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by Bob Weiss
#48. This is a natural evolution, building a complete bath ensemble program and the Joseph Abboud bath brand within the Creative Bath family of licensed programs. #Quote by Bob Weiss
Evolution quotes by Isaac Asimov
#49. However much the creationist leaders might hammer away at their scientific and philosophical points, they would be helpless and a laughing-stock if that were all they had. It is religion that recruits their squadrons. Tens of millions of Americans, who neither know nor understand the actual arguments for - of even against - evolution, march in the army of the night, their Bibles held high. And they are a strong and frightening force, impervious to, and immunized against, the feeble lance of mere reason. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Evolution quotes by Elena Ferrante
#50. The problem is that real change takes a long time, while life hits us right away, now, with all its contradictions. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Evolution quotes by Neil Shubin
#51. In a perfectly designed world - one with no history - we would not have to suffer everything from hemorrhoids to cancer. #Quote by Neil Shubin
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#52. Evolution never looks to the future. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by Mark Anthony Peterson
#53. Evolution is scary. However, the thought of going extinct because you refused to change should be more terrifying #Quote by Mark Anthony Peterson
Evolution quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#54. Some claim evolution is just a theory. As if it were merely an opinion. The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact. Evolution really happened. Accepting our kinship with all life on Earth is not only solid science. In my view, it's also a soaring spiritual experience. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Evolution quotes by George Wald
#55. Mind, rather than emerging as a late outgrowth in the evolution of life, has existed always as the matrix, the source and condition of physical reality. #Quote by George Wald
Evolution quotes by Michelle Mankin
#56. Are there really other things in life besides music? - Avery Jones in Love Evolution #Quote by Michelle Mankin
Evolution quotes by Donald Johanson
#57. Evolution is a fact. It is the best explanation of what is known from observations. It's a theory as powerful as the theory of gravity. #Quote by Donald Johanson
Evolution quotes by Fred Hoyle
#58. The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is 1 to a number with 40,000 noughts after it (1040,000) ... It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution. There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Evolution quotes by Gary Zukav
#59. The requirements for our evolution have changed. Survival is no longer sufficient. Our evolution now requires us to develop spiritually - to become emotionally aware and make responsible choices. It requires us to align ourselves with the values of the soul - harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for life. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Evolution quotes by Maryanne Wolf
#60. There are few more powerful mirrors of the human brain's astonishing ability to rearrange itself to learn a new intellectual function than the act of reading. Underlying the brain's ability to learn reading lies its protean capacity to make new connections among structures and circuits originally devoted to other more basic brain processes that have enjoyed a longer existence in human evolution, such as vision and spoken language. [...] we come into the world programmed with the capacity to change what is given to us by nature, so that we can go beyond it. We are, it would seem from the start, genetically poised for breakthroughs. #Quote by Maryanne Wolf
Evolution quotes by Alan W. Watts
#61. The sensation of "I" as a lonely and isolated center of being is so powerful and commonsensical, and so fundamental to our modes of speech and thought, to our laws and social institutions, that we cannot experience selfhood except as something superficial in the scheme of the universe. I seem to be a brief light that flashes but once in all the aeons of time - a rare, complicated, and all-too-delicate organism on the fringe of biological evolution, where the wave of life bursts into individual, sparkling, and multicolored drops that gleam for a moment only to vanish forever. Under such conditioning it seems impossible and even absurd to realize that myself does not reside in the drop alone, but in the whole surge of energy which ranges from the galaxies to the nuclear fields in my body. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Evolution quotes by Nicholas Roerich
#62. The evolution of the New Era rests on the cornerstone of Knowledge and Beauty. #Quote by Nicholas Roerich
Evolution quotes by Jonathan Nolan
#63. We're going to leave this planet at some point further than we have, we're going to go beyond the moon, we're going to go to mars. We all kind of know that on some level, I think actually. So there's an inevitability to human evolution, this being the next step. #Quote by Jonathan Nolan
Evolution quotes by Bryant McGill
#64. Evolve your understanding of success from the outer realm of control, materialism, and ego, to the inner realm of surrender, spirituality, and compassion. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Evolution quotes by Martin Gardner
#65. Consider a cow. A cow doesn't have the problem-solving skill of a chimpanzee, which has discovered how to get termites out of the ground by putting a stick into a hole. Evolution has developed the brain's ability to solve puzzles, and at the same time has produced in our brain a pleasure of solving problems. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Evolution quotes by Victor Manan
#66. If you have to run then learn from Bolt, if you have to fight watch Muhammad Ali`s jab and grab punches, if dunking with a basketball does it for you why not pull a Vince Carter or fly in like Michael Jordan , if science and evolution tickles your fancy have you read "Evolution" by Charles Darwin?

Well, Like Martin Luther king said " If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

So pickup that broom , get started and stop complaining! #Quote by Victor Manan
Evolution quotes by William S Lind
#67. At the heart of this phenomenon, Fourth Generation war,4 lies not a military evolution but a political, social, and moral revolution: a crisis of legitimacy of the state. All over the world, citizens of states are transferring their primary allegiance away from the state to other entities: to tribes, ethnic groups, religions, gangs, ideologies, and "causes." Many people who will no longer fight for their state are willing to fight for their new primary loyalty. #Quote by William S Lind
Evolution quotes by Jared Taylor
#68. Many kinds of animal behavior can be explained by genetic similarity theory. Animals have a preference for close kin, and study after study has shown that they have a remarkable ability to tell kin from strangers. Frogs lay eggs in bunches, but they can be separated and left to hatch individually. When tadpoles are then put into a tank, brothers and sisters somehow recognize each other and cluster together rather than mix with tadpoles from different mothers.
Female Belding's ground squirrels may mate with more than one male before they give birth, so a litter can be a mix of full siblings and half siblings. Like tadpoles, they can tell each other apart. Full siblings cooperate more with each other than with half-siblings, fight less, and are less likely to run each other out of the territory when they grow up.
Even bees know who their relatives are. In one experiment, bees were bred for 14 different degrees of relatedness - sisters, cousins, second cousins, etc. - to bees in a particular hive. When the bees were then released near the hive, guard bees had to decide which ones to let in. They distinguished between degrees of kinship with almost perfect accuracy, letting in the closest relatives and chasing away more distant kin. The correlation between relatedness and likelihood of being admitted was a remarkable 0.93.
Ants are famous for cooperation and willingness to sacrifice for the colony. This is due to a quirk in ant reproduction that means worker ants a #Quote by Jared Taylor
Evolution quotes by Ken Ham
#69. Based on the Bible, I believe that all the land animals were made on day six, and Adam and Eve were made on day six, and people try to make fun of us for believing that dinosaurs lived with people, but there are a lot of animals living today that evolution says lived with dinosaurs. #Quote by Ken Ham
Evolution quotes by Al Franken
#70. Our laws need to reflect the evolution of technology and the changing expectations of American society. This is why the Constitution is often called a 'living' document. #Quote by Al Franken
Evolution quotes by Maggie Nelson
#71. When all the mythologies have been set aside, we can see that, children or no children, the joke of evolution is that it is a teleology without a point, that we, like all animals, are a project that issues in nothing. #Quote by Maggie Nelson
Evolution quotes by Helen Simonson
#72. He cursed himself for having assumed the weather would be sunny. Perhaps it was the result of evolution, he thought
some adaptive gene that allowed the English to go on making blithe outdoor plans in the face of almost certain rain. #Quote by Helen Simonson
Evolution quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#73. By understanding evolution as the expression of universal intelligence, now becoming conscious of itself within us, and as us, we overcome the dichotomy between current evolutionists who see no design in evolution, and creationists who often propose and anthropomorphic God as creator. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Evolution quotes by Andrei Younis
#74. In this context, my endeavor was actually a search for reconciliation between Christianity and Islam, for as I witness the recent state of affairs in the world I can sense this reconciliation is absolutely necessary so that the future of humanity's spiritual evolution is not endangered, and that we - as members of humanity - could create the opportunity to be permeated by cosmic consciousness and be able to attain a highly spiritualized state of love. #Quote by Andrei Younis
Evolution quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#75. And so we realize that human beings have to be transformed and have to enter into a higher state of awareness, through inner transformation. This has to be the last breakthrough of our evolution, which is a living process. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Evolution quotes by Amy Miller
#76. Animal companions come into your life for an infinite number of reasons, each one being in service to you, your current life experience, and moreover, your soul's growth and evolution. #Quote by Amy Miller
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#77. It would be so nice if those who oppose evolution would take a tiny bit of trouble to learn the merest rudiments of what it is that they are opposing. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by Rory Power
#78. See how a body will change, to give you the best chance it can. #Quote by Rory Power
Evolution quotes by Kat Lahr
#79. Society needs to evolve just as our DNA does. #Quote by Kat Lahr
Evolution quotes by Jacques Monod
#80. Evolution in the biosphere is therefore a necessarily irreversible process defining a direction in time; a direction which is the same as that enjoined by the law of increasing entropy, that is to say, the second law of thermodynamics. This is far more than a mere comparison: the second law is founded upon considerations identical to those which establish the irreversibility of evolution. Indeed, it is legitimate to view the irreversibility of evolution as an expression of the second law in the biosphere. #Quote by Jacques Monod
Evolution quotes by Lionel Suggs
#81. Evolution is a part of nature. The world has strayed away from God, and now interprets its conception for the benefit of blissful ignorance. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Evolution quotes by Andrew Cohen
#82. You are the only one who can do this. That's the ultimately challenging and profoundly liberating truth you discover in Evolutionary Enlightenment. Any individual who is committed to this path has to know, at the deepest level, that he or she is the only one who could possibly do this. And that is because there is no other. You have discovered that fact, directly, for yourself. From the absolute or nondual perspective that emerges in spiritual revelation, there is only ONE. There literally is no other; there is only One without a second. To truly understand conscious evolution, you must grapple with the profound implications of that fact. I believe we can only consciously evolve to the degree that we have realized at the deepest level of our being that we are that One without a second.

In an evolutionary context, facing into the truth of nonduality - that the many is the One and that the One is ultimately who we always are - forces a confrontation with any relationship to the life process that is less than whole, complete, and fully committed. To consciously evolve is to surrender unconditionally to the truth that there is no other and at the same time to accept responsibility for what that means in an evolving universe - a cosmos that is slowly but surely becoming aware of itself through you and me. That One without a second is simultaneously awakening to itself as it develops, as it evolves, and it is that One, as you and me, alone, that can now begin to take res #Quote by Andrew Cohen
Evolution quotes by John Templeton
#83. Would it not be strange if a universe without purpose accidentally created humans who are so obsessed with purpose? #Quote by John Templeton
Evolution quotes by Jonathan Wells
#84. The many meanings of 'evolution' are frequently exploited by Darwinists to distract their critics. Eugenie Scott recommends: 'Define evolution as an issue of the history of the planet: as the way we try to understand change through time. The present is different from the past. Evolution happened, there is no debate within science as to whether it happened, and so on ... I have used this approach at the college level.'
Of course, no college student - indeed, no grade-school dropout - doubts that 'the present is different from the past.' Once Scott gets them nodding in agreement, she gradually introduces them to 'The Big Idea' that all species - including monkeys and humans - are related through descent from a common ancestor ... This tactic is called 'equivocation' - changing the meaning of a term in the middle of an argument. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Evolution quotes by William S. Wilson
#85. Evolution propels itself by an inclination toward its next probable achievement." ("Desire") #Quote by William S. Wilson
Evolution quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#86. So far as Feminism seeks to adjust the legal position of woman to that of man, so far as it seeks to offer her legal and economic freedom to develop and act in accordance with her inclinations, desires, and economic circumstances - so far it is nothing more than a branch of the great liberal movement, which advocates peaceful and free evolution. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Evolution quotes by Ernesto Che Guevara
#87. When asked whether or not we are Marxists, our position is the same as that of a physicist, when asked if he is a "Newtonian" or of a biologist when asked if he is a "Pasteurian. #Quote by Ernesto Che Guevara
Evolution quotes by Charles Darwin
#88. Man may be excused for feeling some pride at having risen, though not through his own exertions, to the very summit of the organic scale; and the fact of his having thus risen, instead of having been aboriginally placed there, may give him hopes for a still higher destiny in the distant future. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Evolution quotes by Cathy Burnham Martin
#89. Unconditional love takes a strong and deliberate evolution. Unconditional love is way beyond emotional involvement. This is loving the person inside the person… loving their very soul. #Quote by Cathy Burnham Martin
Evolution quotes by Nick Bostrom
#90. The image of evolution as a process that reliably produces benign effects is difficult to reconcile with the enormous suffering that we see in both the human and the natural world. Those who cherish evolution's achievements may do so more from an aesthetic than an ethical perspective. Yet the pertinent question is not what kind of future it would be fascinating to read about in a science fiction novel or to see depicted in a nature documentary, but what kind of future it would be good to live in: two very different matters. #Quote by Nick Bostrom
Evolution quotes by Christopher Knight
#91. It may part of a one way evolution ... or it may be we are currently on the downside of an innocence cycle where one day, with an up cycle, sweet will be entertaining again. #Quote by Christopher Knight
Evolution quotes by Richard Levins
#92. The organism cannot be regarded as simply the passive object of autonomous internal and external forces; it is also the subject of its own evolution. #Quote by Richard Levins
Evolution quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#93. Everyone's life is an evolution of emotions, spirit and beliefs. The storyline changes, plots thicken, main characters mature and new spiritual journeys begin. This is true of inspirational authors. Their books represent only the stages of their life. New triumphs of the soul have yet to be written! #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Evolution quotes by Harold Morowitz
#94. The probability for the chance of formation of the smallest, simplest form of living organism known is 1 to 10340,000,000 ... The size of this figure is truly staggering, since there are only supposed to be approximately 10 electrons in the whole universe! #Quote by Harold Morowitz
Evolution quotes by Loren Eiseley
#95. We are rag dolls made out of many ages and skins, changelings who have slept in wood nests or hissed in the uncouth guise of waddling amphibians. We have played such roles for infinitely longer ages than we have been men. Our identity is a dream. We are process, not reality, for reality is an illusion of the daylight - the light of our particular day. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Evolution quotes by Katie Couric
#96. Changing the world doesn't happen all at once. It isn't a big bang. It's an evolution, the sum of a billion tiny sparks. And some of those sparks will have to come from you. #Quote by Katie Couric
Evolution quotes by John Yates
#97. Evolution is more about the condition of the heart of a man who does not want to acknowledge God than it is about the facts. #Quote by John Yates
Evolution quotes by Poetic Evolution
#98. People try to hide behind God to fool others in the world, but they fail to realize that the world is not big enough to hide behind to try and fool God #Quote by Poetic Evolution
Evolution quotes by Theodosius Dobzhansky
#99. Evolutionary plasticity can be purchased only at the ruthlessly dear price of continuously sacrificing some individuals to death from unfavourable mutations. Bemoaning this imperfection of nature has, however, no place in a scientific treatment of this subject. #Quote by Theodosius Dobzhansky
Evolution quotes by George Leonard
#100. The universe is continually at its work of restructuring itself at a higher, more complex, more elegant level. The novelty, the new, more complex order, doesn't emerge from the present in a steady stream, nor at all places at the same rate. It comes, as all things do, in rhythmic waves; there will always be times and places of scarcity and stagnation and retrogression. Still, the long-term direction is clear. The intention of the universe is evolution. #Quote by George Leonard
Evolution quotes by Charles Stross
#101. the destiny of intelligent tool-using life was to be a stepping-stone in the evolution of corporate instruments. #Quote by Charles Stross
Evolution quotes by Fabio Novembre
#102. Him & Her are born directly from the ideas behind the Panton Chair. An evolution of the hermaphroditic original, declined into the harmony of the two sexes. They assume sculpted forms like naked models of seduction ... but they feel no shame. #Quote by Fabio Novembre
Evolution quotes by Philippa Perry
#103. Plasticity is an intrinsic property of the human brain and represents evolution's invention to enable the nervous system to escape the restrictions of its own genome and thus adapt to environmental pressures, physiologic changes, and experiences. #Quote by Philippa Perry
Evolution quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#104. Since Dart's time, paleoanthropologists, geneticists, and molecular biologists have used fossils and DNA sequences to establish our place in the tree of evolution. We are apes descended from other apes, and our closest cousin is the chimpanzee, whose ancestors diverged from our own several million years ago in Africa. These are indisputable facts. And rather than diminishing our humanity, they should produce satisfaction and wonder, for they connect us to all organisms, the living and the dead. But #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Evolution quotes by Eleesha
#105. As we celebrate the evolution of the life of one so special, we embrace the meaning of life, itself. #Quote by Eleesha
Evolution quotes by Lionel Suggs
#106. Revelation is God's way of telling humanity that he is afraid of their possibility; the possibility of one day being able to surpass even him. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Evolution quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#107. There are no shortcuts in evolution. #Quote by Louis D. Brandeis
Evolution quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#108. Respect for the word - to employ it with scrupulous care and an incorruptible heartfelt love of truth - is essential if there is to be any growth in a society or in the human race.To misuse the word is to show contempt for man. It undermines the bridges and poisons the wells. It causes Man to regress down the long path of his evolution. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Evolution quotes by Piero Scaruffi
#109. Evolution did not design us to believe only true facts, nor to buy only useful products, nor to say only meaningful sentences #Quote by Piero Scaruffi

Evolution quotes by Douglas Adams
#112. An island, on the other hand, is small. There are fewer species, and the competition for survival has never reached anything like the pitch that it does on the mainland. Species are only as tough as they need to be, life is much quieter and more settled [..] So you can imagine what happens when a mainland species gets introduced to an island. It would be like introducing Al Capone, Genghis Khan and Rupert Murdoch into the Isle of Wight - the locals wouldn't stand a chance. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#113. When humility is exercised, people begin to realise that they do not, as it were, exist at all. #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by Wendy Mass
#114. We are here because over billions of years, countless variables fell into place, any of which could have taken another path. We are essentially a beautiful fluke, as are the millions of other species with which we share this planet. Our cells are composed of atoms and dust particles from distant galaxies, and from the billions of living organisms that inhabited this planet before us. #Quote by Wendy Mass
Evolution quotes by Alain Ducasse

Evolution quotes by Brennan Manning
#117. If we maintain the open-mindedness of children, we challenge fixed ideas and established structures, including our own. We listen to people in other denominations and religions. We don't find demons in those with whom we disagree. We don't cozy up to people who mouth our jargon. If we are open, we rarely resort to either-or: either creation or evolution, liberty or law, sacred or secular, Beethoven or Madonna. We focus on both-and, fully aware that God's truth cannot be imprisoned in a small definition. #Quote by Brennan Manning

Evolution quotes by V.A. Menon
#119. Life, a miracle of nature,
an evolved molecule of matter,
blossomed in the vast expanse of oceans.
Methane, ammonia, hydrogen and water vapor
When joined under the radio-active sun,
The molecules of non living matter underwent
massive changes and became live.
It's this accident that made the molecule of protein,
Which even Stanley Miller reproduced in lab.
Evolution went on, and on and changed ,
from amoeba to dinosaurs, from ape to man,
It was an amazing architecture of nature ,
Which still continue improving human brain.
The amazing creation nature, the man,
kept on exploring the mysteries of nature,
and succeeded in duplicating nature's marvel
through his latest invention - the cloning,
and succeeded in decoding even the genetic code.
Still we have to salute the mother nature,
which has many more mysteries in store!. #Quote by V.A. Menon
Evolution quotes by Gary Zukav
#120. Pain by itself is merely pain,
but the experience of pain couples with an understanding
that the pain serves a worthy purpose as suffering.
Suffering can be endured because
there is a reason for it that is worth the effort.
What is more worthy of your pain than the evolution of your soul? #Quote by Gary Zukav
Evolution quotes by Ayad Akhtar
#121. I think that the thematic, formal history of the literary form ultimately harkens back to a different political system. That is to say, a feudal order: the aristocratic dispensation of leisure time, the refinements of the self. With the shift from feudal aristocracy to democracy there has been a long process of evolution. I think we're in the throes of a kind of steep, logarithmic shift, and I think that literary forms are losing their capacity to connect people to issues, to the experiences that feel most meaningful to them. #Quote by Ayad Akhtar
Evolution quotes by Jack Hitt
#122. Evolution has one big rule: If there's no pressure on the system to change, then it doesn't bother. #Quote by Jack Hitt
Evolution quotes by Gyan Nagpal
#123. Mankind, as history tells us over and over again, seeks the least painful solution and, as a result, ends up exchanging one problem for
another #Quote by Gyan Nagpal
Evolution quotes by Henry A. Kissinger
#124. The China of the 1970s was a communist dictatorship. The China of the twenty-first century is a one-party state without a firm ideological foundation, more similar to Mexico under the PRI than Russia under Stalin. But the measurement of the political and the economic evolution has not yet been completed, and is one of the weak points of the system. #Quote by Henry A. Kissinger
Evolution quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#125. Mankind has invested more than four million years of evolution in the attempt to avoid physical exertion. Now a group of backward-thinking atavists mounted on foot-powered pairs of Hula-Hoops would have us pumping our legs, gritting our teeth, and searing our lungs as though we were being chased across the Pleistocene savanna by saber-toothed tigers. Think of the hopes, the dreams, the effort, the brilliance, the pure force of will that, over the eons, has gone into the creation of the Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Bicycle riders would have us throw all this on the ash heap of history. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Evolution quotes by Pope Pius XII
#126. Salvation and justice are not to be found in revolution, but in evolution through concord. Violence has ever achieved only destruction, not construction; the kindling of passions, not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction, not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord. #Quote by Pope Pius XII
Evolution quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#127. I can see as clear as a daylight that the hour is coming when women will lead humanity to a higher evolution. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Evolution quotes by Thomas Nagel
#128. I believe the defenders of intelligent design deserve our gratitude for challenging a scientific world view that owes some of the passion displayed by its adherents precisely to the fact that it is thought to liberate us from religion. That world view is ripe for displacement ... #Quote by Thomas Nagel
Evolution quotes by Patrick Delsaut
#129. In English:

Some people, who can voluntarily get out of their body, went to "the other side" to see if there was anything there!
The exciting testimonies of these explorers of the Beyond revealed that there are countless Worlds on other vibratory planes, in other Dimensions, where live the souls of the deceased living beings!!!

But, I went even further and I have discovered that these countless Worlds are, in reality, countless Planets belonging to other Cosmic Universes located in other Spaces and other Times, on other vibratory planes, in other Dimensions!

The Beyond is not nebulous but Cosmic!!!

The famous "Gate of Heaven" which allows the souls to pass into the Beyond is, in reality, a true "StarGate", a huge Vortex, a Tunnel of Light which crosses the Space and Time, which leads the soul on another planet, in another world, in another Cosmic Universe, in another Space, in another Time, in another vibratory plane, in another Dimension...!

I take you to discover the extraordinary adventure of Life, Evolution and Death, through multiple cycles, from life to life, from planet to planet, in an evolutionary spiral that leads souls ever higher, towards the Light...!

#130. My record, Evolution, is really about me evolving as an artist and trying a few new things. There's a song called, Road Worn, which is about spending so much time on the road and is a lot more jazzy sounding than most of my other music. #Quote by Eliot Lewis
Evolution quotes by Frans De Waal
#131. The book of nature is like the Bible: Everyone reads into it what they want, from tolerance to intolerance, and from altruism to greed. It's good to realize, though, that if biologists never stop talking of competition, this doesn't mean they advocate it, and if they call genes selfish, this doesn't mean that genes actually are. Genes can't be any more "selfish" than a river can be "angry," or sun rays "loving." Genes are little chunks of DNA. At most, they are "self-promoting," because successful genes help their carriers spread more copies of themselves. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Evolution quotes by Judd Trichter
#132. Unsettling because it reveals some possible branch of evolution in which sex organs will no longer exist. The bots won't need them, and perhaps without them, the entire concept of gender will disappear. #Quote by Judd Trichter

Evolution quotes by Peter K. Fallon
#134. I see no real evolution in media ecology beyond the "shape shifting" nature that seems to have been deliberately embedded in its fabric. The one thing that must, I think, always define a study we recognize as media ecological is its acknowledgement of the interactions of cultures – and the people who constitute those cultures – and their technologies. #Quote by Peter K. Fallon
Evolution quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#135. Similarities are read into nature by our nervous system, and so are structurally less fundamental than differences. Less fundamental, but no less important, as life and 'intelligence' would be totally impossible without abstracting. It becomes clear that the problem which has so excited the s.r. of the people of the United States of America and added so much to the merriment of mankind, 'Is the evolution a 'fact' or a 'theory'?, is simply silly. Father and son are never identical - that surely is a structural 'fact' - so there is no need to worry about still higher abstractions, like 'man' and 'monkey'. That the fanatical and ignorant attack on the theory of evolution should have occured may be pathetic, but need concern us little, as such ignorant attacks are always liable to occur. But that biologists should offer 'defences' based on the confusions of orders of abstractiobs, and that 'philosophers' should have failed to see the simple dependence is rather sad. The problems of 'evolution' are verbal and have nothing to do with life as such, which is made up all through of different individuals, 'similarity' being structurally a manufactured article, produced by the nervous system of the observer. #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Evolution quotes by James Carville
#136. These are the people who don't believe in evolution or global warming. So, why would they believe default would hurt anything? #Quote by James Carville
Evolution quotes by Jean M. Auel
#137. And their memory made them extraordinary. In them, the unconscious knowledge of ancestral behavior called instinct had evolved. Stored in the back of their large brains were not just their own memories, but the memories of their forebears. They could recall knowledge learned by their ancestors and, under special circumstances, they could go a step beyond. They could recall their racial memory, their own evolution. And when they reached back far enough, they could merge that memory that was identical for all and join their minds, telepathically. #Quote by Jean M. Auel
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#138. Inner Knowledge
You want to become wise in one lesson: First become a real human being. #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by David Deutsch
#139. The theory that the biosphere was created without evolution, a few thousand years ago, is ruled out by overwhelming scientific evidence. To claim that there are 'alternative (always better) Biblical explanations of the same data', which make creationism a reasonable alternative to our best theories of biology and physics, is appalling intellectual dishonesty. #Quote by David Deutsch

Evolution quotes by E. O. Wilson
#142. Real biologists who actually do the research will tell you that they almost never find a phenomenon, no matter how odd or irrelevant it looks when they first see it, that doesn't prove to serve a function. The outcome itself may be due to small accidents of evolution. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Evolution quotes by George Gaylord Simpson
#143. The fact - not theory - that evolution has occurred and the Darwinian theory as to how it occurred have become so confused in popular opinion that the distinction must be stressed. #Quote by George Gaylord Simpson

Evolution quotes by Wolfgang Puck
#145. It was a revolution, but now it is an evolution. People know more ingredients, people know more techniques, and people look for more ingredients they've never looked for before. In the '80s, you couldn't find raw tuna in any restaurant that wasn't Japanese. Now, you can't find any restaurant without it or sashimi. #Quote by Wolfgang Puck
Evolution quotes by Emma Mildon
#146. Know this, you can start over, every morning.
Know that every day you have an opportunity to respond.

Know your value. Know your worth. Know your contribution. Know this. #Quote by Emma Mildon
Evolution quotes by Bill Hicks

Evolution quotes by Sylvia Earle
#149. This is a living planet. Look around. Mars, Venus, Jupiter. Look beyond our solar system. Where else is there a place that works, that is just right for the likes of us? It has not happened just instantly. It is vulnerable to our actions. But it's the result of four and a half billion years of evolution, of change over time. And it changes every day, all the time. It would be in our interest to try to maintain a certain level of stability that has enabled us to prosper, to not wreck the very systems that give us life. #Quote by Sylvia Earle
Evolution quotes by Eric Chaisson
#150. Not that chance dominated events in the early Solar System, for scientific determinism was also functioning. But chance is an essential factor in all evolutionary events, and the birth and development of our planetary system were not exceptions. #Quote by Eric Chaisson
Evolution quotes by Steve Volk
#151. Frank White, who literally wrote the book on the overview effect, is also part of the Overview Institute. And he thinks of space travel largely as Mitchell does - an evolutionary step. "If fish could think at our level of intelligence," White said, "back before humanity existed, and some fish were starting to venture up on land, a lot of them would be saying, just as we do now about space: 'Why would we want to go there? What's the point?' And they'd have literally no idea of what venturing onto land was going to mean". #Quote by Steve Volk
Evolution quotes by Gary Taubes
#152. An obvious example of this reverse causation would be pregnant women, who are driven to fatten by hormonal changes. This hormonal drive induces hunger and lethargy as a result. In the context of evolution, these expanded fat stores would assure the availability of the necessary calories to nurse the infants after birth and assure the viability of the offspring. #Quote by Gary Taubes
Evolution quotes by Michele Knight
#153. If only you knew who you really were you would be fearless and love yourself with a grand passion! You are a unique shard of God, the Universe, the whole or whatever label you would like to call it. No one can take your place and without you endless synchronicity and evolution would not happen. You are so powerful that just by walking down the street you can change someone's life forever. #Quote by Michele Knight
Evolution quotes by Corinne Heline
#154. Man is a musical being. His origin is in the spoken Word. By sound was he sustained and by music he evolved. One day he will recognize music as a vital factor in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual evolution of the whole human race. #Quote by Corinne Heline
Evolution quotes by Tim Scott

Evolution quotes by Andrew Cohen
#156. The authentic self is the best part of a human being. It's the part of you that already cares, that is already passionate about evolution. When your authentic self miraculously awakens and becomes stronger than your ego, then you will truly begin to make a difference in this world. You will literally enter into a partnership with the creative principle. #Quote by Andrew Cohen
Evolution quotes by Steve Erickson
#157. Some distant day, anthropologists will consider as a landmark in humankind's evolution - comparable to the capacity for destroying ourselves by nuclear obliteration - the adolescent gene's newly emergent power to dictate nightly TV viewing. #Quote by Steve Erickson
Evolution quotes by David Eagleman
#158. All life will die, all mind will cease, and it will all be as if it had never happened. That, to be honest, is the goal to which evolution is traveling, that is the "benevolent" end of the furious living and furious dying ... All life is no more than a match struck in the dark and blown out again. The final result ... is to deprive it completely of meaning. #Quote by David Eagleman

Evolution quotes by David Zindell
#162. So many synapses,' Drisana said. 'Ten trillion synapses in the cortex alone.'
Danlo made a fist and asked, 'What do the synapses look like?'
'They're modelled as points of light. Ten trillion points of light.' She didn't explain how neurotransmitters diffuse across the synapses, causing the individual neurons to fire. Danlo knew nothing of chemistry or electricity. Instead, she tried to give him some idea of how the heaume's computer stored and imprinted language. 'The computer remembers the synapse configuration of other brains, brains that hold a particular language. This memory is a simulation of that language. And then in your brain, Danlo, select synapses are excited directly and strengthened. The computer speeds up the synapses' natural evolution.'
Danlo tapped the bridge of his nose; his eyes were dark and intent upon a certain sequence of thought. 'The synapses are not allowed to grow naturally, yes?'
'Certainly not. Otherwise imprinting would be impossible.'
'And the synapse configuration – this is really the learning, the essence of another's mind, yes?'
'Yes, Danlo.'
'And not just the learning – isn't this so? You imply that anything in the mind of another could be imprinted in my mind?'
'Almost anything.'
'What about dreams? Could dreams be imprinted?'
'Certainly.'
'And nightmares?'
Drisana squeezed his hand and reassured him. 'No one would imprint a nightmare into another.'
'But it is possible, yes? #Quote by David Zindell

Evolution quotes by David Cherubim
#165. At this most crucial time in the course of evolution we are all faced with the appalling fact that we may, at any moment, destroy our precious material lives and our wonderful little earth through advanced technological means. With the advance of civilization has developed the ghastly power to destroy all of humanity at the push of a button. We are now on the verge of destroying ourselves utterly from the face of the earth! We have become mere slaves to subhuman types of destructive thinking and action! We are out of control in every direction! More than any other time on earth we are all faced with the potential dangers of political anarchy and ruin, and we are all exposed to the terrific possibility of a Third World War, more hideous than any other war in the history of our planet. What we do at this most crucial time will determine the destinies of humanity for many generations, even centuries, to come. #Quote by David Cherubim
Evolution quotes by Paul Quarrington
#166. Let us accept the possibility that there is, at death, not an abrupt cessation of energy, rather a dispersal. This seems more than reasonable to me. Mind you, I've owned a series of old cars, and Im used to turning off the motor only to experience a series of rumblings and explosions that would shame many a volcano. This is the sort of thing I'm conceptualizing, a kind of clunky running-on. And just as some cars are more susceptible to this behavior, so people vary in the length of time, and the force with which, their energy sputters and gasps ... My example is overly dramatic, but it is not wholly unreasonable, and it serves to make this genetic mutation a player at the evolutionary table. You see what I'm getting at: a biologically and evolutionally sound model for the soul. (I didn't say I'd achieved it.) Let's conceive of the soul as an aura that human beings wear on their backs, cumberson as a tortoise's carapace. Some are larger than others. #Quote by Paul Quarrington
Evolution quotes by Idries Shah
#167. If you cannot laugh frequently and genuinely, you have no soul. #Quote by Idries Shah
Evolution quotes by Daniel C. Dennett
#168. [T]he idea of treating Mind as an effect rather than as a First Cause is too revolutionary for some–an "awful stretcher" that their own minds cannot acommodate comfortably. This is as true today as it was in 1860, and it has always been as true of some of evolution's best friends as of its foes. For instance, the physicist Paul Davies, in his recent book The Mind of God, proclaims that the reflective power of human minds can be "no trivial detail, no minor by-product of mindless purposeless forces" (Davies 1992, p. 232). This is a most revealing way of expressing a familiar denial, for it betrays an ill-examined prejudice. Why, we might ask Davies, would its being a by-product of mindless, purposeless forces make it trivial? Why couldn't the most important thing of all be something that arose from unimportant things? Why should the importance or excellence of anything have to rain down on it from on high, from something more important, a gift from God? Darwin's inversion suggests that we abandon that presumption and look for sorts of excellence, of worth and purpose, that can emerge, bubbling up out of "mindless, purposeless forces. #Quote by Daniel C. Dennett
Evolution quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#169. British astronomer Fred Hoyle said something to this effect: That believing in Darwin's theoretical mechanisms of evolution was like believing that a hurricane could blow through a junkyard and build a Boeing 747 #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Evolution quotes by Niall Shanks
#170. If a functional gene becomes a pseudogene, its product will no longer be available to the biochemical pathways in which it formerly participated. The transformation of a gene to a pseudogene will not have catastrophic consequences if the biochemical pathways in which its product formerly participated are redundantly complex - other products can take over the role of the missing product. Perhaps not as efficiently, but efficiency is something that can be improved by selection. In this way, redundant scaffolding can be reduced, ultimately to the point where a system or pathway is irreducibly complex. #Quote by Niall Shanks
Evolution quotes by Julian Huxley
#171. Evolution is nothing but matter become conscious of itself. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Evolution quotes by Chico Xavier
#172. It is not up to us to particularize, but rather to deduce that the concepts of human rights originated from the divine influence because, as far as we are concerned, we are compelled to recognize our slow individual evolution from fierce selfishness toward a universal love, from the iniquity toward true justice. #Quote by Chico Xavier
Evolution quotes by Robert Higgs
#173. Nearly all libertarians were once conservatives or progressives or independent statists of some stripe. But scarcely any conservatives, progressives, or independent statists were once libertarians. This asymmetry in the direction of ideological migration is interesting and perhaps informative. #Quote by Robert Higgs

Evolution quotes by Rituparna Ray Chaudhuri

Evolution quotes by E. O. Wilson

Evolution quotes by David Bentley Hart
#177. Among all the many great transitions that have marked the evolution of Western civilisation ... there has been only one - the triumph of Christianity - that can be called in the fullest sense a "revolution": a truly massive and epochal revision of humanity's prevailing vision of reality, so pervasive in its influence and so vast in its consequences as to actually have created a new conception of the world, of history, of human nature, of time, and of the moral good. #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Evolution quotes by Frans De Waal
#178. We need to separate the process of evolution - which is, indeed, a self-serving process - and the actual motivations of animals. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Evolution quotes by Terry Pratchett
#179. Triboplasts played a crucial role in evolution, precisely because they did have internal organs, and in particular they could ingest food and excrete it. Their excreta became a major resource for other creatures; to get an interestingly complicated world, it is vitally important that shit happens. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Evolution quotes by Joshua Foer
#180. Evolution has programmed our brains to find two things particularly interesting, and therefore memorable: jokes and sex - and especially, it seems, jokes about sex. #Quote by Joshua Foer
Evolution quotes by Michio Kaku
#181. (When we force a smile, we activate facial muscles with our prefrontal cortex. But when we smile because we are in a good mood, our nerves are controlled by our limbic system, which activates a slightly different set of muscles. Our brains can tell the subtle difference between the two, which was beneficial for our evolution.) #Quote by Michio Kaku
Evolution quotes by Grigoris Deoudis
#182. Let us liberate ourselves from any form of control. Let us focus at the inner drum, where the rhythm aligns with that of our heart. The measure of responsibility, equals to the need for evolution. Just listen, the inner child, let it whisper in your ear. #Quote by Grigoris Deoudis
Evolution quotes by Kevin Kelly
#183. This is actually a very important principle that science is learning about large systems like evolution and that futurists are learning about anticipating human society: just because a future scenario is plausible doesn't mean we can get there from here. #Quote by Kevin Kelly
Evolution quotes by Michio Kaku
#184. Kaluza also gave an answer as to where the fifth dimension was. Since we see no evidence of a fifth dimension, it must have "curled up" so small that it cannot be observed. (Imagine taking a two-dimensional sheet of paper and rolling it up tightly into a cylinder. From a distance, the cylinder looks like a one-dimensional line. In this way, a two-dimensional object has been turned into a one-dimensional object by curling it up.)

Kaluza's paper initially created a sensation. But in the coming years, objections were found to his theory. What was the size of this new fifth dimension? How did it curl up? No answers could be found.

For decades Einstein would work on this theory in fits and starts. After he passed away in 1955, the theory was soon forgotten, becoming just a strange footnote to the evolution of physics. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Evolution quotes by Thomas Kuhn
#185. Groups do not have experiences except insofar as all their members do. And there are no experiences ... that all the members of a scientific community must share in the course of a [scientific] revolution. Revolutions should be described not in terms of group experience but in terms of the varied experiences of individual group members. Indeed, that variety itself turns out to play an essential role in the evolution of scientific knowledge. #Quote by Thomas Kuhn
Evolution quotes by David Berlinski
#186. Darwin's theory of evolution is the last of the great nineteenth-century mystery religions. And as we speak it is now following Freudians and Marxism into the Nether regions, and I'm quite sure that Freud, Marx and Darwin are commiserating one with the other in the dark dungeon where discarded gods gather. #Quote by David Berlinski
Evolution quotes by Kenneth R. Miller
#187. In an age of molecular genomics, it is ever more apparent that the fingerprints of evolution are pressed deeply into human DNA, just as they are into the genomes of every other organism. Biologists understand this, and so do students who study the science of life. #Quote by Kenneth R. Miller
Evolution quotes by Christine O'Donnell
#188. You know what, evolution is a myth ... Why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans? #Quote by Christine O'Donnell
Evolution quotes by David Malouf
#189. So long as we are driven by the need to make up for our needs; by the restless sense that we are not yet fully assured of our place in the world and our hold on its swarming phenomena; so long as there is more to be discovered and made, more to grasp for and make real, we must go on inventing ourselves. #Quote by David Malouf
Evolution quotes by Hope Jahren
#190. Within this new mix of genes are unprecedented possibilities, old weaknesses eliminated, and new weaknesses that might even turn out to be strengths. This is the mechanism by which the wheels of evolution turn. All #Quote by Hope Jahren
Evolution quotes by Halle Berry
#191. I've always thought what was I before I was this and then what will I be when I leave here. I really had a hard time always accepting that at some point I'm just going to turn to dust and ashes and never be again and that the journey would stop. I believe that we are souls, kind of like a version of what our movie presents, and we come here again and again until we arrive at our highest evolution, and what happens after that I don't know. #Quote by Halle Berry
Evolution quotes by Michael Pollan
#192. The short, unhappy life of a corn-fed feedlot steer represents the ultimate triumph of industrial thinking over the logic of evolution. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Evolution quotes by Stephen King
#193. At bottom, you see, we are not Homo sapiens as all. Our core is madness. The prime directive is murder. What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle. And that is what the Pulse exposed five days ago. #Quote by Stephen King
Evolution quotes by William Morton Wheeler
#194. But if the ants are not despondent because they have failed to produce a new social invention or convention in 65 million years, why should we be discouraged because some of our institutions and castes have not been able to evolve a new idea in the past fifty centuries? #Quote by William Morton Wheeler
Evolution quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#195. Homosexuality is neither a sin, nor an anomaly or a disease. It is an evolutionary variation. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Evolution quotes by Richard Dawkins
#196. [W]e may now be on the threshold of a new kind of genetic takeover. DNA replicators built 'survival machines' for themselves - the bodies of living organisms including ourselves. As part of their equipment, bodies evolved onboard computers - brains. Brains evolved the capacity to communicate with other brains by means of language and cultural traditions. But the new milieu of cultural tradition opens up new possibilities for self-replicating entities. The new replicators are not DNA and they are not clay crystals. They are patterns of information that can thrive only in brains or the artificially manufactured products of brains - books, computers, and so on. But, given that brains, books and computers exist, these new replicators, which I called memes to distinguish them from genes, can propagate themselves from brain to brain, from brain to book, from book to brain, from brain to computer, from computer to computer. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Evolution quotes by James Redfield
#197. The thought of both East and West (philosophies) can indeed be integrated into a higher truth. They show us that the West is correct in maintaining that life is about progress about evolving toward something higher. Yet the East is also correct in emphasizing that we must let go of control with the ego. We can't progress by using logic alone. We have to attain a fuller consciousness, an inner connection with God, because only then can our evolution toward something better be guided by a higher part of ourselves. #Quote by James Redfield
Evolution quotes by Priya Kumar
#198. There are no signboards in life; your inner voice and your inner knowledge are enough to lead you in the direction of your highest evolution. #Quote by Priya Kumar
Evolution quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#199. Well, where did you come from? Evolution? Creation? Couldn't we have evolved in the same way as other species, predator and prey? Or, if you don't believe that all this world could have just happened on its own, which is hard for me to accept myself, is it so hard to believe that the same force that created the delicate angelfish with the shark, the baby seal and the killer whale, could create both our kinds together?
Edward Cullen, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Evolution quotes by Daniel Dennett
#200. To put it bluntly but fairly, anyone today who doubts that the variety of life on this planet was produced by a process of evolution is simply ignorant - inexcusably ignorant, in a world where three out of four people have learned to read and write. #Quote by Daniel Dennett
