“We were not designed rationally, but are products of a convoluted history.”
Neil Shubin, Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body

“In a perfectly designed world —one with no history— we would not have to suffer everything from hemorrhoids to cancer.”
Neil Shubin, Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body

“No sane paleontologist would ever claim that he or she had discovered "The Ancestor." Think about it this way: What is the chance that while walking through any random cemetery on our planet I would discover an actual ancestor of mine? Diminishingly small. What I would discover is that all people buried in these cemeteries-- no mater whether that cemetery is in China, Botswana, or Italy-- are related to me to different degrees. I can find this out by looking at their DNA with many of the forensic techniques in use in crime labs today. I'd see that some of the denizens of the cemeteries are distantly related to me, others are related more closely. This tree would be a very powerful window into my past and my family history. It would also have a practical application because I could use this tree to understand my predilection to get certain diseases and other facts of my biology. The same is true when we infer relationship among species.”
