Evolution on a keyboard

When I saw Richard Dawkins sitting down in front of a piano, I was afraid that he might be about to give us a rendition of an old Anglican hymn, say, such as Onward Christian Soldiers or Abide with Me. (That's because I often do such strange things.)

His use of the keyboard to illustrate the vastness of evolutionary time is most eloquent.

  1. That's a great way to describe evolution and get people, hopefully, to understand time.
