Looked at this way, we can then pose the question of the future of humanity on Earth, in the solar system, and in the galaxy from the standpoint of both evolutionary biology and human nature. The conclusion is straightforward: Our choice is to grow, branch, spread and develop, or stagnate and die.” ~ Robert Zubrin
  56. “Seasonal changes, as it were, take place in history, when there is practically an almost universal death, a falling of the foliage of the tree of life. Such were the intervals between the ancient and mediaeval time, the mediaeval and the modern.” ~ George Edward Woodberry

  61. “Extinction has only separated groups: it has by no means made them; for if every form which has ever lived on this earth were suddenly to reappear, though it would be quite impossible to give definitions by which each group could be distinguished from other groups, as all would blend together by steps as fine as those between the finest existing varieties, nevertheless a natural classification, or at least a natural arrangement, would be possible.” ~ Charles Darwin

The food of that blessed life is ‘the bread that came down from heaven and gives life to the world’ (Jn. 6:33), just as the inerrant Word Himself declares about Himself in the Gospels.” ~ Maximus the Confessor
