Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)
Last night I was watching a British documentary about the Human Genome* and how it reveals aspects of our evolutionary past.

At one point they were discussing whether evolution moves along at steady pace like clockwork or whether it makes dramatic leaps forward -- turns out it is a bit of both (mostly clockwork with occasional leaps) but I thought some of you might enjoy this quote I lifted from University College of London Geneticist Professor Steve Jones...


There's a strange dichotomy within the theory of Evolution between what is sometimes called "Evolution by jerks" versus "Evolution by creeps"


:D

*The Gene Code with Dr Adam Rutherford -- those of you in the UK can get a FREE set of Genome Fridge Magnets from the Open University to go with this 2 part series!
