Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

While unregistered users are able to browse the forum on a basic level, registering an account provides additional forum access not visible to guests as well as the ability to join in discussions and contribute yourself! Registration is free and instantaneous.

    Vorsa: @LittleIslander Your shout reminds me of a long-running joke I have with friends about English literature lessons: "the door is blue to reflect the character's melancholy. Err no, the door is blue because the author likes blue."

    Monster: It would be legal in the real England, soooo...

    LittleIslander: Again, it's called character development. I think way to much emphasis is put on the message in stuff these days. To see an action in a book merely as contributing to a message really limits what you can do with a given story.

    Tet: Your criticisms are kinda stupid (no offense).
  • Yesterday, 11:49 AM
    Troy Troodon: Either way it seems to send the wrong message to support underage drinking. That was one of the criticisms I had with the book, even though I to like the story.
