You have to look at history as an evolution of society.
Our own genomes carry the story of evolution, written in DNA, the language of molecular genetics, and the narrative is unmistakable.
Kenneth R. Miller
Some people would claim that things like love, joy and beauty belong to a different category from science and can't be described in scientific terms, but I think they can now be explained by the theory of evolution.
We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.
We can actually accelerate the process through meditation, through the ability to find stillness through loving actions, through compassion and sharing, through understanding the nature of the creative process in the universe and having a sense of connection to it. So, that's conscious evolution.
Scientific knowledge is in perpetual evolution; it finds itself changed from one day to the next.
Biology is the science. Evolution is the concept that makes biology unique.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Charles Sanders Peirce
The shelves of many evangelicals are full of books that point out the flaws in evolution, discuss it only as a theory, and almost imply that there's a conspiracy here to avoid the fact that evolution is actually flawed. All of those books, unfortunately, are based upon conclusions that no reasonable biologist would now accept.
I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.
The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Evolution is a process of constant branching and expansion.
Stephen Jay Gould
I have a strong feeling that the subject of evolution is beautiful without the excuse of creationists needing to be bashed.
I think the driving force for cultural evolution is this desire for groups to be splitting off and separating and forming subgroups insofar as the environment will allow it. We see great cultural diversity and large numbers of cultures per unit area in regions of the world in which the environment is really rich.
Our animal origins are constantly lurking behind, even if they are filtered through complicated social evolution.
Rest assured that whatever station of life we are placed, princely or lowly, it contains the lessons and experiences necessary at the moment for our evolution, and gives us the best advantage for the development of ourselves.
The progress of evolution from President Washington to President Grant was alone evidence to upset Darwin.
Evolution isn't just a story about where we came from. It's an epic at the center of life itself. Far from robbing our lives of meaning, it instills an appreciation for the beautiful, enduring, and ultimately triumphant fabric of life that covers our planet. Understanding that doesn't demean human life - it enhances it.
Kenneth R. Miller
Teaching creationism in science class as an alternative to evolution is inappropriate.
Evolution seems to close the heart to some of the plainest spiritual truths while it opens the mind to the wildest guesses advanced in the name of science.
William Jennings Bryan
Life clearly does more than adapt to the Earth. It changes the Earth to its own purposes. Evolution is a tightly coupled dance, with life and the material environment as partners. From the dance emerges the entity Gaia.
In the span of my own lifetime I observed such wondrous progress in plant evolution that I look forward optimistically to a healthy, happy world as soon as its children are taught the principles of simple and rational living.
Whether one believes in evolution, intelligent design, or Divine Creation, one thing is certain. Since the beginning of history, human beings have been at war with each other, under the pretext of religion, ideology, ethnicity and other reasons. And no civilization has ever willingly given up its most powerful weapons.
Evolution isn't true, because if we evolved from monkeys, how can they still be here?
For the first time in human evolution, the individual life is long enough, and the cultural transformation swift enough, that the individual mind is now a constituent player in the global transformation of human culture.
William Irwin Thompson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
