“Creativity is imagining something that isn't there and making it real.”
Spencer Wells, Pandora's Seed: The Unforeseen Cost of Civilization

“As often happens in science, technology has opened up a field to new ways of solving old riddles – often providing startling answers.”
Spencer Wells, The Journey Of Man: A Genetic Odyssey

“if a nuclear war were to happen, and only the Kikuyu of Kenya (or the Tamils, or the Balinese …) survived, then that group would still have 85 per cent of the genetic variation found in the species as a whole. A strong argument indeed against ‘scientific’ theories of racism – and clear support for Darwin’s assessment of human diversity in the 1830s.”
Spencer Wells, The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey
