David Brin
“It is a total mystery how we evolved minds capable of piloting cars through wild maneuvers using a wrist to steep while shouting at a cell phone. The creationists are fools for focusing on animal evolution. Darwin explains nature! He has more difficulty explaining us.”
David Brin

Think about it.

David Brin

Larry Niven

Larry Niven, Scatterbrain
