‘We’re not just evolving slowly. For all practical purposes we’re not evolving. There’s no reason to think we’re going to get bigger brains or smaller toes or whatever – we are what we are.’

Stephen Jay Gould (Professor of Geology and Paleontology, Harvard University) in a speech, October 1983. As reported in ‘John Lofton’s Journal’, ‘The Washington Times’, February 8, 1984.
