Symphony of Science – The Greatest Show on Earth! A music video about Evolution


[David Attenborough]
How could one species turn into another? [Richard Dawkins]
How is it that we find ourselves surrounded by such complexity, such elegance? [Bill Nye]
The genes of you and me They’re all made of DNA We’re all made of the same chemicals DNA – we’re all made of DNA [Attenborough]
Only the fittest survive
And that is the key Natural Selection
That is the key [Dawkins]
We are surrounded by endless forms
Most beautiful, most wonderful Evolution – the greatest show on Earth There is grandeur in this view of life
(most beautiful, most wonderful) Evolution – the greatest show on Earth [Attenborough]
The history of life can be thought of ss a many branched tree The five kingdoms of life were established early on Bacteria
Protists- amoeba like creatures Fungi, Plants, and Animals [Dawkins]
We find ourselves perched on one tiny twig In the midst of a blossoming tree of life Perched on one tiny twig In the midst of a blossoming tree of life [Attenborough]
Only the fittest survive
And that is the key Natural Selection – that is the key [Dawkins]
We are surrounded by endless forms
Most beautiful, most wonderful Evolution – the greatest show on Earth There is grandeur in this view of life
(most beautiful, most wonderful) Evolution – the greatest show on Earth We are surrounded by millions of other species Walking, flying, burrowing, stalking, chasing, fleeing,
Outpacing [Attenborough]
Animals strive to reach this one ultimate goal To ensure the survival of the next generation This one ultimate goal
To pass on their genes That is what life is all about There is grandeur in this view of life
(Most beautiful, most wonderful) Evolution – the greatest show on Earth [Dawkins]
As we look back on the history of life We see a picture of never ending,
ever rejuvinating novelty [Attenborough]
Those animals may seem to us to be very remote,
strange, even fantastic But all of us alive today
Owe our very existence to them
