The goal of this site is to teach the Epic of Evolution in ways that inspire you to thrive.  By learning about the magnificence of our incredible journey from the Great Radiance to the emergence of life and then of consciousness and culture, our sense of possibility expands, enlarging  our imaginations with creative new possilities.

The human imagination is a powerful creative force, one that can alter the future of life on this planet.  The Epic of Evolution inspires our imagination because it  reveals a world that is far more spectacular and awesome that anyone could ever have imagined without the gift of science.

“As the first truly global creation story, the evolutionary epic has the potential to unite rather than to divide humanity.” ~ David Christian

“Evolution is neither random nor predetermined, but rather an intelligent dance between organism and environment.” ~ Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman

“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” ~ Winston Churchill

“After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

“The goal of the Epic of Evolution is to “inspire grateful service to the enduring promise of life on the planet.” ~ Loyal Rue

“I find the epic of evolution, from the “Hot Big Bang” to Homo sapiens, an illumination of how the Creator God is and has been creating.” ~ Arthur Peacocke, Biochemist and Priest

“The stories of evolution have the power to unite all peoples.” ~ Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan

“Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution” ~ Theodosius Dobzhansky

“It has taken millions of years to make preparations for what we are now to accomplish in this one lifetime. . . . such is the amazement of GOD’s hand . . . known to us as evolution”. ~ Guru Singh

“There is grandeur in this view of life.” ~ Charles Darwin

“Without a meaningful evolutionary worldview it’s impossible to understand yourself, your world, or what’s needed for humanity to survive and thrive in the coming decades.” ~ Michael Dowd

“The evolutionary epic is probably the best myth we will ever have.” ~ Edward O. Wilson, biologist

“The problem of survival is not fundamentally technological. It is spiritual and moral. It is evolutionary.” ~ David Grinspoon

“If you study an old-fashioned television screen up close, you’ll see dots of different colors dancing in front of your eyes. You’ll think you are looking at chaos. But stand back, and you will see a picture full of meaning. Something like this happens over and over again as we study the past. Stand too close to the details and it’s hard to see anything but the idiosyncratic actions of individual human beings. Big history helps us stand back from the details and see the patterns. By doing so, it can transform our ideas of what history is about.” ~ David Christian
