Sean B. Carroll, evolutionary biologist, writer, and film producer

Why is the planet the way it is? How did we get here?

Does everything happen for a reason or are some things left to chance?

Philosophers and theologians have pondered these questions for millennia, but over the past half-century, startling scientific discoveries have revealed that we live in a world driven by chance. In this talk Sean B Carroll will tell the stories of the mother of all accidents, the accident of all mothers, and much more in an entertaining and awe-inspiring tale of the surprising power of chance in our lives and the world.
