A life-long preoccupation with the past as geologist, paleontologist, archeologist, or interdisciplinary evolutionist inevitably leads to a heightened sense of time and a realization of the changes that are possible on this planet throughout the ages. No one who has pondered those consequences of time and change can doubt that evolution has occurred or that it is still taking place.

A special excitement overcomes students of the past whenever new discoveries make them aware of evolutionary process and pattern. The slow rush of evolution is awesome. It is difficult, perhaps even dangerous, for an individual to be attunded to this natural process all the time. For this reason, the society of scientists recognizes certain spokesmen who represent its thoughts on evolution. Their writings are read, or put aside for the moment, in step with one's ability to confront fact and accept it.

In the pages that follow, Professor H. James Birx speaks to us. Human Evolution presents an unique perspective on topics of evolution by an author who is an educator, scientist, and humanist. This study is indispensable to researchers and students who seek a history of evolutionary science and desire to find their place within this fast-paced, developing field.

    Vitalism is a profoundly science-ejected concept, though many CAM or 'natural health' cabals falsely claim that vitalism survives scientific scrutiny.I quote:"today, the evolutionary theory maintains that living organisms have emerged from nonliving structures through the long process of physicochemical development [...] the inorganic world preceded the organic realm; life is the biological extension of the historical development of physiochemical structures [p.074...] Darwin's worldview is essentially mechanistic and materialistic [...] the theory of evolution continues to withstand those onslaughts from ignorance. It's triumph is due to a final emancipation from teleology and vitalism in favor of experience, experimentation, and rigorous reflection free from theology and spiritualism. Indeed, the Darwinian revolution caused a collapse of our intellectual tradition, including the demise of natural theology [p.039...] within biology, there is no longer a need to resort to special creations or spontaneous generations or vitalism or teleology as valid explanations for life in general, and its origin and evolution in particular [...] today, scientific evidence and rational thought strongly support the origin of the organic realm from the inorganic world [p.049]."-r.c.
