“Who am I and how did I get here?” Have you ever wondered about your place in nature? Charles Darwin certainly did. In The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man, Darwin managed to get as much right as he did wrong.

Dinosaurs once ruled the Earth. Now, primates have inherited the crown. How? Humans (whatever a “human” is) have gone through a deep evolutionary journey, the culmination of millions of years of evolution. Come find out how you fit into the big picture, and how I am trying to help answer these questions!
