Where evolution meets science fiction and art. Speculative Evolution (also called Speculative Biology and Speculative Zoology) is the envisioning of fictional, but scientifically possible creatures that could have existed on an alternate Earth, or might actually exist somewhere on another planet or in the deep sea.

For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities. This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.

What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek παλαιός + ον + λόγος [ old + being + science ] and is the science that unravels the æons-long story of life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms we have now, including humans, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today. This community is open to anyone interested in paleontology, fossils, and evolution.
