Evolution Quotes

Quote of the Day

Evolution made civilization steward of this planet. A hundred thousand years later, the steward stood before evolution not helper but destroyer, not healer but parasite. So evolution withdrew its gift, passed civilization by, rescued the planet from intelligence and handed it to love.
View quotes by Richard Bach

The evolution of the brain not only overshot the needs of prehistoric man, it is the only example of evolution providing a species with an organ which it does not know how to use
View quotes by Arthur Koestler

Evolution is baseless and quite incredible. [Obviously not an advocate of the Richard Dawkin's work which takes evolution as a surer fact than that other people exist]
View quotes by John Fleming

My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.
View quotes by Steven Wright

Evolution is what it is. The upper classes have always died out; it's one of the most charming things about them.
View quotes by Germaine Greer

I don't see why so many people have such a campaign against evolution, even if it doesn't explain everything surely it must go a long way.
View quotes by Elliott Gould

The proof of evolution lies in those adaptations that arise from improbable foundations.
View quotes by Stephen Jay Gould

I laughed... till my sides were sore [on Darwins theory of evolution]
View quotes by Adam Sedgwick

A rotten fabric of guess and speculation [on Darwins theory of evolution]
View quotes by Samuel Wilberforce

The Duckworths are primitive life forms. If you're talking evolution, they're one step above fungus.
View quotes by Philip Middlemiss

God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed - that is the meaning of evolution.
View quotes by Graham Greene

Historians will have to face the fact that natural selection determined the evolution of cultures in the same manner as it did that of species
View quotes by Konrad Lorenz

The evolution of the capitalist style of life could be easily - and perhaps most tellingly - described in terms of the genesis of the modern Lounge Suit.
View quotes by J A Schumpeter

What we think of as our sensitivity is only the higher evolution of terror in a poor dumb beast. We suffer for nothing. Our own death wish is our only real tragedy.
View quotes by Mario Puzo

Creationist critics often charge that evolution cannot be tested, and therefore cannot be viewed as a properly scientific subject at all. This claim is rhetorical nonsense.
View quotes by Stephen Jay Gould

To keep up even a worthwhile tradition means vitiating the idea behind it which must necessarily be in a constant state of evolution: it is mad to try to express new feelings in a 'mummified' form.
View quotes by Alfred Jarry

There is no law of progress. Our future is in our own hands, to make or to mar. It will be an uphill fight to the end, and would we have it otherwise? Let no one suppose that evolution will ever exempt us from struggles. 'You forget,' said the Devil, with a chuckle, 'that I have been evolving too.'
View quotes by William Ralph Inge

The progress of evolution from President Washington to President Grant was alone evidence to upset Darwin.
View quotes by Henry Adams

I don't know what it is, but I can't look at Hulk Hogan and believe that he's the end result of millions and millions of years of evolution.
View quotes by Jim Murray

It's really questioning where humanity is going, and is there a place for the way we perceive things now? Does that have to remain the same? Is anything constant? The world is constantly evolving, as is humanity. It's really about evolution and taking charge of humanity's next step. [on The Dune Saga]
