    A thought occurs to me. We can trace down evolution to about 500 or 600 million years ago and that doesn’t even include the single cell stuff.

    This leads me to believe that on some of those rocky planets we’re now starting to detect there has to be life, be it microbial, prokaryote or eukaryote, it’s more than likely there.

    It’s a big universe. In my mind we cannot be the only so called intelligent species.

    Does cladistics make more sense to you over the traditional way of organizing organisms?

    Date-a-Clade?

    For a second there I thought it was referring to an intercladistic romantic relationships and dating website.

    Marvellous; I’ve taken a copy for my “Desktop”. I am surprised, though, that humans’ closest non-primate relative is the mouse; I would have thought it would have been the sheep, particularly in New Zealand.
