Life is messy. Thank God?!.
Evolution is three overlapping processes: rampantly overproduce with random variation, ruthlessly prune, and you and your shit are my bread and butter.
Scientists use bodies of evidence to think outside the confining myths of authority.
Extremists, frosted by seemingly imperfect selves, wrap their minds in moldy blankets of venerated pasts, and snuggle up to demagogues peddling lifeless legends of flawless futures.
We are not imperfect. We are incomplete.
There are no free lunches. Every choice is a tradeoff, a compromise that yields benefits in exchange for losses.
