    So true. I think it’ll take a lot of us who grasp the enormity of what Iain has uncovered to push it out beyond the academic realm, if that’s even possible.

    I think about Darwin, and the vicious response Evolution would have gotten from many quarters (and still does in some). I imagine prim Victorians smirking about how no way, NO WAY, were they descended from apes and slime molds. Then I think about the contemporary museum in the US, showing early humans riding dinosaurs and using them as beasts of burden.

    It’ll be an uphill battle for sure.
