Evolution still leaving the critics for dead

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/08/science/08cnd-brain.html?hp&ex=1126238400&en=7f83ee9b96d40611&ei=5094&partner=homepage

I really can't do a very good job of summarising this article. It presents evidence and arguments for the continuation of evolution into the modern age.

Chaos theory tells us that complex systems will often exhibit a random walk of key metrics, or propagate a state change incredibly rapidly. This provides the exciting possibility for Great Leaps Forward -- something we see in evolutionary history without significant causal explanation.

Wouldn't it be amazing if tomorrow saw the dawn of something new?

Cheers,
