Gosse argued that fossils are not really the remains of creatures which existed. God had created the world in six days, but had made it look like it was already ancient, complete with the remains of non-existent pre-historic life.

The poems in this collection are adequate, with great lines. The rhythm is stimulating to all the five senses thanks to the use of multiple images.

The objects, animals, and images in the poems disorient and lead the reader to focusing on putting flesh to the bones... more...

Ist die Evolution immer ein Erfolgsmodell? Bringt sie stets ideal an ihre Umwelt angepasste Organismen hervor? Sind geniale Strategien ihr Kennzeichen?

Wallace noticed on expeditions to the Amazon and the Malay archipelego that mammals in Southeast Asia are more advanced than their Australian cousins.

Charles Lyell's argument in this classic volume is that the processes of nature are slow and uniform, and that the Earth is in consequence hundreds of millions of years old.
