"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

The world's youngest and cutest paleontologist. As usual many thanks to PZ's blog.
Way to go British people. You gave the world Charles Darwin and Richard Dawkins. Now you've given us Emily Baldry.
