July 30th, 2013 · No Comments

http://history-and-evolution.com/whee4th/chap4_2_2.htm One of the reasons the debate over evolution is so confusing lies in the way it changes gears: the period before and after the emergence of life, the Cambrian, the onset of primates, with the sudden emergence of man into the dimension of mind.
