Quote of the day (refresh browser to select another):

One always worries in science that one's being too narrow, one always worries that one's not been imaginative enough even in the case of evolutionary convergence say look N equals 1, we only have one earth and maybe there are initial conditions which in a sense predispose everything in one set of inevitable directions. I don't actually think that is the case because really the building blocks of the universe are things like carbon and various other elements and in point of fact it maybe even from that stage, which of course then leads us to the Big Bang itself, there is, if you like, seeded into the initiation of the universe itself the inevitability of intelligence. -- Simon Conway Morris (British paleontologist), "Evolution's Driving Force," Australian Broadcasting System, 3 Dec 2005, available at Morris2005.
