All Living Snakes Evolved From a Few Survivors of Asteroid That Killed the Dinosaurs

Research from the Milner Center for Evolution suggests modern snakes evolved from a handful of ancestors that survived the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs. A new study suggests that all living snakes evolved from a handful of species that survived the giant asteroid impact that wiped out the d

Plants Didn’t Evolve Gradually – They Evolved Complexity in Two Dramatic Bursts 250-Million-Years Apart

A Stanford-led study reveals that rather than evolving gradually over hundreds of millions of years, land plants underwent major diversification in two dramatic bursts, 250 million years apart. The first occurred early in plant history, giving rise to the development of seeds, and the second took pl

Mathematical Analysis of Fruit Fly Wings Hints at Evolution’s Limits | Quanta Magazine

A painstaking study of wing morphology shows both the striking uniformity of individuals in a species and a subtle pattern of linked variations that evolution can exploit.

Pandemic, science, vaccination, Darwinism and the right: are scientists hopeless idiots or what? From suspicion of Darwinism to suspicions of scientists to suspicions of vaccines… – 1848+: The End(s) of History

The current pandemic in the US is a puzzle in the sphere of vaccination. Tens of millions refuse vaccination in what is seen as irrationalism. So it is, but consider the issue of evolution. The the…
