Quotes about archaeology


1. If the history-deniers who doubt the fact of evolution are ignorant of biology, those who think the world began less than ten thousand years ago are worse than ignorant, they are deluded to the point of perversity. They are denying not only the facts of biology but those of physics, geology, cosmology, archaeology, history and chemistry as well.
- Richard Dawkins, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution
