This is a small chunk of the phylogenetic tree of life. I used the image here [link] to help bring this wallpaper to fruition.

Cool. I really like the way something as amazing as the tree of life is turned into a really beautiful piece of art.

"Turdus Migratorius". Turdus.

My humor is one of the worst in the world.

Turdus is, ironically, the song thrush. Hehe, thrush...

Fun fact: Humans share roughly 70% of their D.N.A with bananas. That's right, go jump in a bowl of ice cream because you are part banana.

And humans share more DNA with pigs than with monkeys.

Or not, I just read that somewhere.

Hey, we're both eukaryotic life-forms, with quite a few similarities on the cellular level. Stands to reason that we'd share some DNA with them.

Wanna know from what we're born loll why not make a picture with the start of this genealogic tree of course ^^;

I'm not religious but i don't really believe that we're far brothers of all lifeforms they're from others tree because that is really weird to think that all of us have the same ancestry. The most reliable would be the Monkey but don't tell me a lizard will be !?

Believe it or not, I've heard that even Charles Darwin found it hard to believe that everything came from the one same source. (Not to mention that the one pool of goo that became all life would have to hold all the DNA of everything that has, and ever will, exist on Earth) Many people that share the faith of evolution don't even agree to what extent, and how, evolution has occurred. (Showing that evolution is still a theory)
Always look for the truth, but watch out for the truth people say is true.
