Great post on where humans came from

Have you ever wondered where we came from? This post may answer the question for you. In all, it echoes what I've said here before: life is an inherent property of matter. (I don't know who said this first; I think it was Sean Carroll.) We are the universe, baby.

The post is written as if in response to the usual thick-brained idiots who say, "My grandfather wasn't no monkey!!!" The writer takes this proposition all the way back in time and tells us what our forebears were like at different points in geological history. It's a great read.

And hey, I'm loving Freethought Blogs, which is where I found the post. Thanks guys. You're performing a real service for the rest of us.
