Quote of the Day: Tulsi Roy on the Contributions of Evolutionary Theory and the Future

...we are in many ways tempted to see the future as spattered with more legal turmoil and more bleak statistics of our nation's hopelessly malfunctioning education system.

It is easy to see the future in so very pessimistic terms, as a constant battle with the forces of superstition and pseudoscience. But it is important for us as Americans, and indeed as members of a global community, not to lose sight of the many truly life-saving, beautiful, and elegant contributions evolutionary theory has made to science, health, and humanity as a whole.

— Tulsi Roy, The Case Western Observer
