Happy Birthday, Charles Darwin!
If he were still alive, he’d be turning 200 today. (I like to think that if there is a god, Chuck D. got up to heaven, and god was all, “Hey, maybe if you’d believed in Creation, shut the hell up with all that evolution nonsense, I could have let you live to, oh, I don’t know, the age of 200! But you didn’t. Joke’s on you, monkey boy!”)
Times are tough. When you’re sleeping in your car and eating cat food because you lost your job, your house and, ergo, your friends and family, then I can see where “God”, and the Creation story that goes along with him, might be comforting. A new Gallup poll says that less than 4 in 10 Americans believe in Evolution. (Of course, statistics can me made to say whatever you want them to. 83% of all people know that.)
So it was with great glee that I found this:
Yup, you heard that right: “Raisins come from grapes, people come from apes.”
The kids are gonna be alright.
I think Mr. Darwin would approve.
