From PZ, an excellent definition of evolution.


Evolution is real, and it is a process built on raw chance driven by the brutal engines of selection, and there is no sign of a loving, personal god, but only billions of years of pitiless winnowing without any direction other than short-term survival and reproduction.

... it's got one soaring virtue that trumps all the others: it's true.
