"According to biologists' best current knowledge, evolutions have invented a fully rotating wheel on a grand total of three occasions"

Eliezer, what do you mean by this? I think my brain is not working today or something cause this seems like it's either a joke (which I do not get) or a reference to something in biology (which I am not aware of).

Other than that bit of confusion, this was a fantastic post. I think the last few things you've written on evolution should be required reading in every biology class (especially high school ones). So many well intentioned people have a severe misunderstanding of evolution and what you've written I think can clear it up.
