God & the Universe

This is the last of Richard Dawkins' short videos which I'm posting to celebrate Charles Darwin's bicentennial.

Harrumph, and the only one of this series I have much of a gripe with. Watch it first; YouTube or hi-res:

Dawkins asks "Has human evolution come to an end?" [0:59]. The answer to that question is a simple no.

Like all living things humanity is a halfway house between what was before and what is to come. All life balances on the edge between change and extinction. Brain size and fecundity are not the sole answer and given the fate of the dinosaurs, luck has large part to play.
