I saw the Discovery channel show for the first time last night. Very, very good. My only criticism, and it is a slight one, is that it communicated a sense of meaninglessness to human existence, and I am strongly against that portrayal of evolutionary theory. This is what is wrong with evolutionary teaching, and I don't think evolutionary biology fully understands that they will never 'sell' evolution to the public under such educational approaches, and it only encourages the irrational creationist views.

In any case, I thought the graphics were excellent and it made the history of human evolution so much more real for me. I hope they do more on the same subject. Dinosaurs are excellent to watch, but watching our own evolution is so much more personal and brings philosophy right into one's own backyard.

I hope the show gets a lot of attention and causes much debate...
