Evolutionary Symbols on Bibles!

bibles.jpgWhen I was in Waterstone's bookshop this morning I happened to notice the rather attractive covers of these Bibles.  I wonder if the publishers realise that they have decorated them with potent symbols of evolution?  Darwin himself studied humming birds, indeed the current ten pound notes issued by the Bank of England show him with a humming bird (I suppose barnacles weren't considered photogenic enough - is there a term 'vertebratist'?).


The image on the right-hand bible appears to be a nautilus shell, and nautiluses are cephalopods, and cephalopods, as everyone should know, mean .... PZ Myers.
