Evolution & cooperation

I’m still traveling! I’ll be heading to the airport shortly to fly back to Minnesota, so until I get back you’ll just have to listen to my talk at Gateway to Reason earlier this month.


  1. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    Excellent talk. Not surprising, to anybody who can look beyond slogans (survival of the fittest), that cooperation can lead to the success for the species.

  2. Dreaming of an Atheistic Newtopia says

    “Diversity is life, uniformity is death” That’s a fantastic Kropotkin quote.
    As always, great talk, PZ, thanx for sharing it.

  3. Callinectes says

    Interesting fact: Rabbits are not native to Britain at all, but rather to the Iberian peninsula, and were spread largely by Romans who took to keeping them for meat. The name “Spain” derives from “Hispania” which itself derives from the Phoenician “I-sephan-im,” “land of rabbits”.

    The widespread distribution of rabbits today can largely be attributed to their deliciousness.
