Thoughts to reflect on

1. "Did the genome of our cave-dwelling predecessors contain a set or sets of genes which enable modern man to compose music of infinite complexity and write novels with profound meaning? …It looks as though the early Homo was already provided with the intellectual potential which was in great excess of what was needed to cope with the environment of his time."

-Susumu Ohno (geneticist, 1928-2000)


2. "Although Nature needs thousands or millions of years to create a new species, man needs only a few dozen years to destroy one."
- Victor Scheffer(biologist, 1906-2011)

3. "God created two acts of folly. First, He created the Universe in a Big Bang. Second, He was negligent enough to leave behind evidence for this act, in the form of microwave radiation."
- Paul Erdős (mathematician,1913-1996)

4. "If your experiment needs statistics, you ought to have done a better experiment."
- Ernest Rutherford (physicist, 1871-1937)

5. "We are storytelling animals, and cannot bear to acknowledge the ordinariness of our daily lives."
- Stephen Jay Gould ( paleontologist,1941-2002)
