  • My new favourite book. Understanding the creation of a species, so much soul growth. Thank you for posting. I still like the new romantically explicit books, but for other reasons. 🤣🤣

  • Just started this amd I realized I haven't seen a walking stick since I was a kid. Where did they go? And fireflys. They disappeared too. I saw one or two a few years ago but other than that, none. 25, 30 years ago my yard would just be full of them. Now they're gone, it's really weird.

  • Darwin's journey and experiences that led him to discover evolution is a much more inspiring story than the fictional nonsense in any religious text.

  • 27:00 Careful. Gene cladograms over deep time produce false positives that don't match trait cladgrams. Genomics workers assume missing taxa will someday fill in the gaps. Phenomic workers know those gaps don't exist anymore. Everything is pretty well set. Online cladogram without major gaps here: reptileevolution.com/reptile-tree.htm

  • I have always used his videos against anxiety, the combination of nature, Davids voice and the music are a combination, which is a form of art that he could advertise as medicine. He helped me through darkest times, living in Namibia. Thanks, David, I know, everything will be good, even if just for the ants!!
