Roman Wisdom

"There is no master plan, no divine architect, no intelligent design. All things, including the species to which you belong, have evolved over vast stretches of time. The evolution is random, though in the case of living organisms, it involves a principle of natural selection. That is, species that are suited to survive and to reproduce successfully, endure, at least for a time; those that are not so well suited, die off quickly. But nothing -- from our own species, to the planet on which we live, to the sun that lights our day -- lasts forever." -Lucretius. Great article/audio about his work on
