Example text

My plain-speaking neighbors would not much care about the philosophical implications of the idea. They wouldn't worry about the personal religious beliefs of Charles Darwin, and they wouldn't give a damn if other people had used evolution to support or justify their own views on religion, on economic systems, on linguistics, or anything else. Very much like my firstyear students, the fundamental questions for my neighbors would be, sensibly, the big ones. The bottom-line issues. Did evolution actually take place?

There is a comforting certainty in the cycles of time, and as summer returns year after year, a steady ebb and flow of species marks the passage of each season. Seeing the regularity of birth, death, and migration, it would be easy to conclude that such has been the pattern of life for all eternity.

To find that, we have to look beneath our feet and read the record of the past.

For the next 3 billion years, most of the history of life on earth, that's all there was. 5 billion years ago, the first of a series of new microscopic fossils appear that have traces of what may be nuclei within their cells. The eukaryotic cell, with genetic information contained within the nucleus, had finally appeared. Having taken almost 2 billion years to gain a nucleus, life took several hundred million more to figure out how to become multicellular. The first widespread experiments in this regard were a stunning series of multicellular animals fossilized almost 700 million years ago into rock that now is part of the Ediacaran Hills of Australia.
